Very possibly the world’s most iconic backpacking boot. Although launched in 1984, the Sundowner’s sleek, all-leather styling reaches back even further, harkening the classic European styles of the 1960’s and 1970’s. But from a technical standpoint, the Sundowner was looking forward from the start.
For the first decade of existence, the boot was as fast and light as they came. Already known for its seamless waterproof design, the Sundowner upped the ante by also becoming one of the first hiking boots in the world to feature Gore-Tex. With its clean, classic lines and remarkable fit, the boot quickly came to represent the heart and soal of Vasque.
To this day the Sundowner GTS remains a top selling style.
