The Vasque Women's Grand Traverse Shoe keeps your foot light and cool whether you're on a tricky approach to a multi pitch climb or shouldering a daypack up and down hiking trails. This hiking shoe uses suede leather for durability and PU coated mesh for ample breathability. The dual density EVA footbed cushions your foot with every step, and the molded EVA midsole absorbs shock from off camber, craggy surfaces. Providing a solid foundation for day long hikes, the shoe's Equalizer last balances performance and comfort with its fitted heel and arch support. The shoe's Vibram Ibex sole lays down serious traction with its lugged design, cruising over scree, wet slabs, and rocky trails. Essential for climbers using this shoe for approaches, the shoe's back loop easily slides onto a biner before you start your ascent.
