The men's Vasque Bitterroot GTX hiking boots are built for sturdy backpacking performance, thanks to all-leather uppers, Gore-Tex linings and a supportive fit.

  • Waterproofed, 2.4mm thick nubuck leather uppers are flexible, lightweight and durable for reliable performance in all conditions; rubber toe bumpers protect feet and uppers
  • Gore-Tex® inserts are seam-sealed to keep out water yet breathable enough to keep feet from overheating
  • Wicking nylon mesh linings absorb this excess moisture and disperse it for fast drying
  • Gusseted, padded tongues keep out trail debris and relieve pressure across insteps from lacing; padded collars add comfort around ankles
  • Dual-density EVA footbeds are anatomically shaped for support and offer extra cushioning underfoot
  • Molded polyurethane midsoles deliver plenty of cushioning and shock absorption for long days on the trail
  • Thermoplastic urethane shanks add rigidity for support and control on uneven surfaces and carrying heavy loads
  • Vasque Bitterroot GTX men's hiking boots feature long-lasting Vibram® rubber outsoles with a multidirectional lug pattern for dependable traction

Vasque Bitterroot GTX Hiking Boots - Men'sis rated3.5out of5by2.
Rated4out of5byfromGreat pair of bootsMy first pair of hiking boots in the 70's was a pair of Vasques. I loved them. They weren't water proof so we had to put a paste on them to make them that way. These boots are every bit as sturdy, provide great ankle support, which I need, are water proof and very comfortable. They are a bit heavier than the lighter weight models, but I'm good with that.

Rated3out of5byfromWore out too quicklyI used these for a little less than three months, working for the National Park Service as a vegetation mapping intern. They were recommended for heavy off-trail use, and they *looked* sturdily built and felt great in the store, though I did buy a half size smaller than I almost always do. The break-in was miserable--I bought these as an emergency replacement for cheapo boots whose time had come, and had no time to gradually break them in. Though they consistently fit great everywhere else, the boots chewed up my outside toe on each foot. After a break-in of ~17 miles, they generally felt fantastic except for rare times, typically at the end of the day, where my outside toes would start to rub again for a few miles. It's important to note that these are made in narrow, medium, and wide widths, but REI only stocks the medium. I can't comment on arch support, because I used Superfeet insoles the entire time I owned them. I highly recommend those, but that's another review. I might keep these if the build quality was better. Admittedly, I did put them through some rough use, but for the price point, I expected a longer life than three months. The rubber on the top of the toe started coming unglued on day one, the inner liner in the toe of one boot separated early and there were some pretty big chunks of the outsole missing by the end of the season. They did stay waterproof for the whole time I've had them, while some of my teammates lost waterproofing in other brands within a single season. Overall, these aren't terribly made, and they might be an OK buy for on-trail use, but I think there are better ways out there to spend your boot money, for on- or off-trail.
