Pare down to go big. Some people prefer to save the weight, others excel with more mobility in the ankle. Whatever your tactic, the Mantra 2.0 GTX invites you to take things further. Sure, it’s a low-cut, but the Vibram Nuasi sole and molded polyurethane midsole reward you with the same stability and grip as a backpacking boot. And the Mantra 2.0 GTX relies on GORE-TEX for its climate control. The mobility of a runner, but the burliness of a boot—make it your mantra.
Primarily 1.8mm waterproof Nubuck leather upper, panels of abrasion resistant mesh add breathability while remaining durable. The effective lacing system easily toggles between a comfortable fit for travel to a more performance fit for hiking. Available with GORE-TEX with Extended Comfort Technology, the most breathable waterproof membrane system Vasque offers.
Vibram's Nuasi sole uses XSTrek compound and angular, multi-directional lugs for excellent trail traction. A rubber sidewall wrap in the toe increases stability and protection on rocky trails. A lightweight polyurethane midsole delivers backpacking boot level stability while maintaining good forefoot flex for faster pace hiking.
