Back in the day, boots were made for the long haul. Due to their weight, hiking boots were also more difficult to haul around on your feet. The Vasque Talus gives a simple solution—keep that old-school vibe without all the extra weight that slows you down. The day hiker combines heritage elements explorers have come to know and love in a sturdy, lightweight package. The Talus features a mesh and nubuck upper with a polyurethane midsole that is known to have a longer life span than other midsole materials. Top that off with a durable Vibram outsole for a boot that's ready for anything—from an urban trek to a two- or three-day journey through nature's backyard.
