Vasque- Lost 40 Boots

Friday, December 30th, 2016

During last year’s Outdoor Retailer Winter Market I saw these new winter boots from Vasque.

The Lost 40 has changed colors slightly since I saw the prototypes, but they’re available in both Men’s and Women’s versions.

There are two independant laces as well as a pull loop at the rear make them easy to don and doff, even when you’re wearing gloves. They also incorporate IceTrek soles, which offer increased traction, even on ice, and are lined with wool. The wool lining and an Aerogel midsole help keep your feet warm in cold conditions.

NBOW – Vasque

Saturday, September 10th, 2011


Outdoor industry publication Leisure Trends has rated the Vasque Breeze GTX as the number one brown boot for the past five years. In the outdoor industry, brown boot is a mainstay hiking boot. So obviously, it’s popular. Unfortunately, Vasque hasn’t really caught the eye of military personnel until recently.

What has made the Breeze so popular is its EVA midsole, usually found in trail and running shoes, paired with a stiff TPU plate. So you get torsional support combined with trail shoe comfort. These same features will do well for military personnel who wear hiking style shoes.

Finally, the Breeze features a Gore-tex sock and Vibram outsole.
