New model for this year (Do not check this option if this model was listed as new in last year's Gear Guide)Sleek, sophisticated and performance built, the Venturist is part of the new Venture category from Vasque. Crafted around Vasque’s top of the line performance last, the Immerse 360, the Venturist perfectly encompasses the entire foot providing a refined fit for rugged environments. A molded dual density EVA midsole with a 3mm Flux Foam footbed offers a slow rebound and will conform to your feet once warmed up and worn for a few minutes. Cushioned density in the heel and metatarsal area for comfort combined with a firmer density for stability makes this an ideal shoe for tackling trails and town taverns alike. The low lug height on the outsole allows for full contact with the ground so adventurers never lose traction on the trail.
