Vasque Grand Traverse Hiking Shoes - Review

Vasque Grand Traverse - Review

I have always liked Vasque hiking shoes and boots. Why? They are comfortable and the rubber they use stick to the rock very well.
About a year ago Vasque could not make hiking shoes with Stealth Rubber anymore due to Adidas refusal to license Stealth Rubber to other companies. A real genius move by Adidas.
Vasque now uses a dual compound sticky Vibram® Ibex outsole that is just as good as Stealth Rubber.

Here's my review:

1. The Grand Traverse hiking shoes are comfortable - Bottom line if your shoes are NOT comfortable, don't wear them. Your feet get you from the trailhead to the peak and back. Take care of your feet!

2. The Grand Traverse hiking shoes stick to the rock as good as any hiking shoe I have ever worn. This is all you need to know.
