The Vasque Wasatch GTX is a mid-weight, waterproof hiking boot suitable for weekend backpacks or extended backcountry trips on a variety of terrain from maintained trails to rugged and rocky surfaces. The boot full leather, minimal seam construction is ready for tough trail conditions and a durable, metal hardware lacing system allows for easy fit adjustments. The Wasatch GTX is fully waterproof and breathable due to a GORE-TEX bootie. The outsole of the Wasatch is a Vasque exclusive called Vibram Contact which feature aggressive high traction lugs at the heel and toe areas while a prominent heel edge provides better traction on steep descents. This is a model for the construction for the bottom of the Wasatch GTX. A thick layer of EVA rubber helps to cushion your foot and provides comfort on high mile days. Under that you’ll find a polyurethane shank. It’s stiff, offers rigidity and yet flexibility. Gives the boot its structure and protects your foot from roots and rocks. The final layer is a Vibram outsole.
