Red Wing, MN—January 20, 2010—Vasque footwear is pleased to announce that Outside China magazine has selected their Mantra Mid GTX for the 2010 Gear of the Year award in the Light Hikers category thanks to their versatility, comfort and style. Also receiving honorable mention within the Hiking Boot category is the Vasque Wasatch GTX for its fit and performance.

“We are thrilled the Outside editors appreciated the athletic fit, supple comfort and breathability that makes this shoe a multisport top-seller,” says Chris Speak, Vasque Sales Director. “This is great news for the Vasque brand in China.”

The Vasque Mantra Mid maintains a tenacious grip in uncertain terrain, thanks to its Vibram sole, and features a comfortable, athletic fit that makes it the shoe to grab for all your outdoor adventures.

The best-selling Wasatch is an understated, high-quality boot that's earned its rock solid reputation due to an incredible fit, with the choice of three widths, and the added benefit of Gore-Tex® fabric technology for durable waterproofness and breathable comfort.
