Deceptively attractive, the Vasque Mantra may look great, but do not discount its functionality. Although it weighs less than two pounds, its Ananasi sole and athletic fit perform well on long hikes. Super lightweight, the breathable upper is made of Nubuck leather and airmesh. Additionally, the upper allows the shoe to move with the foot and will not allow for excess torsion of the ankle. The molded EVA midsole provides an extra measure of comfort for the wearer. As Vasque's number one selling crossover shoe, the Mantra will look good on anyone's foot, yet will perform well on a variety of terrains—both manmade and natural.
