The last frontier.
From muddy trails to muskeg moose spotting, the Women's Vasque Mesa Trek UltraDry Hiking Boot keeps you on your toes during day adventures and overnights in Alaska. An Ultradry membrane means you'll be thinking about the snowy mountain views instead of soggy socks, and the durable waterproof suede is offset by breathable mesh so your feet aren't getting wet from the inside out. Vasque's proprietary outsoles are segmented for natural deformation as you move, providing a smooth ride and a firm grip, and the multi-directional lugs deliver high-performance traction in loose and muddy trail conditions.
Inspired by Vasque's Constant Velocity running shoe, the Mesa Trek is lightweight, athletic, and comfy. The thoughtfully designed EVA midsole keeps the cushioning comfort high if you're taking these for an overnight backpacking excursion, but it also resists compression so you're not loosing out on a responsive feel. Paired with a high rebound footbed and just the right amount of ankle support, you'll be fast on your feet to your next destination picking blueberries or snapping photos of caribou.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
My usual size is 8.5 and this boot was consistent. I heard that this brand runs narrow, so was skeptical it would work for me because I tend to have pinching across the toe box of my foot... but this boot fits really well! I took them out of the box directly to a week long hiking trip in Whistler, BC, and they were perfect. Sturdy at the base without being wide or heavy, supportive at the ankle without restricting, cushy on the bottoms of my feet, no hot spots with thin or thick socks. Highly recommend. Did not take them in water; they did not feel hot and seemed to breathe well.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
A very comfortable hiking boot.
