Vasque Boots has just released it's 30th Anniversary Edition of the Vasque Sundowner GTX Hiking Boots - this boot has the cool, retro look of the Italian-designed original with all the latest in performance hiking boot technology. With a simple, seamless design, the Sundowner is made with a waterproof Goretex lining and Vasque unique and durable Pyrenee sole. It's easy to see what has made the Sundowner Hiking Boots one of the most popular of all time.
The seamless, 2.4-mm Red Wing leather upper (tanned in the US) wears for years, conditions like a dream, and sheds water reliably. It’s the boot to get you started and it’s the boot that takes you as far as you want to go. A GORE-TEX® insert, the Vasque Pyrenees classic sole (styled on the original), and an impeccable tradition in the mountains—the Sundowner GTX is the classic mountain boot.

Material and Design:
One piece, USA-tanned, 2.4 mm leather upper is the ultimate in durability and comfort. Less seams equal fewer hotspots and the longer you wear them, the more custom the fit becomes. A Gore-Tex® membrane protects from inclement conditions, and classic d-ring eyelets are tried and true and offer speed lacing. New for 2015, the Sundowner will be built around the original shaped last, for the classic fit so many have trusted on the trail.
Once again, the Sundowner is offered in the original rubber traction sole with polyurethane midsole. This combination is a perfect blend of trail support and comfort for long miles. Vasque’s proprietary Pyrenees rubber sole takes direct design cues from the original, with aggressive lug pattern, excellent mud clearing and rockered heel for a natural foot transition on trails. The single density polyurethane midsole is coupled with a PU comfort footbed for excellent torsional structure for rough trails while offering great underfoot comfort for long days out.
