By using the athletically-inspired Perpetuum last and a molded EVA midsole with a TPU shank, the Talus Trek Mid and Low have a more nimble feel and offer enhanced stability and support on the trail. Both the mid and low have a Vibram Nuasi outsole with an XS Trek Compound for premium durability and traction. For added comfort, Vasque used a mesh collar around the ankle of the nubuck leather upper and Vasque’s exclusive UltraDry liner to keep feet dry in the wet conditions. The Talus Trek Mid is $149.99 and the Talus Trek Low is $139.99. Pictured below left to right; Men's Talus Trek Low, Men's Talus Trek Mid, Women's Talus Trek Low, Women's Talus Trek Mid.
