Kids are serious when it comes to playing and having fun outdoors and Vasque is proud to offer them a trail footwear collection that will prepare them for hours of endless outdoor play. New for Spring 2017, Vasque will introduce three kids styles that are direct takedowns of the popular styles for adult adventurers.
With the same quality and comfort as Vasque’s popular adult line, this new collection includes a kids-specific version of the Monolith Low, Breeze III and St. Elias backpacking boot. Each style has a molded EVA footbed and rubber cup soles in the heel for support and cushioning. For added trust on the trail, Vasque ensures breathability and protection from creek crossings and wet trails, with its proprietary waterproof membrane, UltraDry, included every style.
“Our customers want to share their passion for the trail with their kids,” says Director of Product Development, Brian Hall. “Now they can with true kids trail footwear designed to extend the day on the trail for epic parents and their little adventurers.”

A true kids backpacking boot, it has speed lacing and hooks with multi-directional traction lugs on the outsole for increased stability on rugged trails. When trail adventures require a waterproof boot that is nimble yet supportive, the Kid’s Breeze III UltraDry ($69.99) is a natural choice. This proven boot is modeled after Vasque’s most popualar adult style for a trusted trail experience.
