Whether you walk or run on the trail, Vasques Aether Tech Boa keeps pace with your changing needs. Its a sporty and versatile trail shoe that combines the essential support features of a training shoe with the durability and stability of a light day hiker. Beneath the stylish and cool, breathable Airmesh Nylon upper is a dual density EVA footbed and an innovative EVA midsole. Vasque added high rebound inserts along the heel and forefoot to help minimize fatigue and increase overall comfort. While many day hiking shoe designs add extra ounces with heavy reinforcement materials, Vasque takes a little off with a lighter TPU-injected nylon textile plate. Beneath the dual density EVA footbed and midsole is a low-profile, trail-ready Vasque Aether Outsole for excellent traction over a variety of surfaces.
