Ignoring limits…an admirable mantra, but easier said than done. The Grand Traverse is Vasque's best effort at making it happen. Embark upon a rocky, loose hike and the dual-density EVA footbed and molded EVA midsole happily oblige. Change plans to an exposed ridge traverse, and fear not—the Vibram Ibex sole features dual-compound rubber to maintain grip under your toes, but wet-weather traction underfoot and beneath the heel. Climb, descend, hike, repeat…that’s what makes a Grand Traverse.
The upper is a tough, 1.8mm suede leather and is combined with PU armored textile mesh and a rubber toe rand for incredible durability in rocky environments. Lace-to-toe closure with active heel strap allows for a wide range of fit adjustments. A plush, Poron foam strobel conforms to your foot for all day comfort and a wicking lining keeps moisture moving during aerobic exertion.
Vibram’s Ibex sole is molded with two of their grippiest rubber compounds, Idrogrip for wet rock traction and Megagrip for excellent balance of sticky and durable. The supple, low profile molded EVA midsole delivers running shoe feel underfoot.
