Vasque Builds on its Legacy with an Expanded and Updated Spring 2019 Trail Line

Vasque is pleased to debut its Spring 19 line of new hiking boots at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Denver, Colorado.

Red Wing, MN – July 23, 2018 –Vasque Footwear, a family-owned company with more than 50 years of experience in the outdoor footwear sector, is pleased to debut its Spring 19 line of new hiking boots at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Denver, Colorado. The line is crafted using modern techniques and technologies in lighter, more comfortable and more durable ways. Every detail of the Spring 19 hiking line has been tested and proven to meet the demands of Vasque’s core users – the same way it has done since 1964.

“This season we wanted bring a diverse range of products to market, that address the needs of all types of hikers, from fast and light to tried and true,” said Brian Hall, director of product development at Vasque.

The VelocityAll-Terrain (AT) is a brand-new streamlined trail runner that’s engineered for lightweight, athletic performance. A precision-fit upper sets the stage for comfort straight out -of-the-box, and well-balanced cushioning keeps feet and joints fresh deep into the backcountry.


Seeking to develop a true all-terrain performer, Vasque combined materials and construction to maximize traction, stability, and durability across a wide range of trail conditions. Tackle all terrain without hesitation in the Velocity All-Terrain.

Hall added, “Truly a shoe for diverse trail terrain, the Velocity AT excels whether running Leadville, thru hiking the PCT or navigating your local trails.”

The Mesa Trek Low is a lightweight women’s hiker that channels trail running expertise into a performance hiking shoe. Building on the success of 2018’s Mesa Trek UD mid, the low-cut update delivers truly responsive hiking, thanks to a precision fit and a flexible midsole that begs for miles straight out-of-the-box.


The updated St.Elias Full-Grain GORE-TEX®pushes the boundaries of hiking boot performance with premium materials that blend to deliver long-distance durability and all-day comfort. Straight out of the box and onto the trail, the midsole and outsole system provide athletic flexibility and comfort with first wear, no break-in needed. Designed to stand up to the rigors of backpacking, an updated premium leather upper and GORE-TEX®membrane ensure rugged durability and peace of mind in wet conditions.
