Ignoring limitsan admirable mantra, but easier said than done. The Grand Traverse is Vasque's best effort at making it happen. Embark upon a rocky, loose hike and the dual-density EVA footbed and molded EVA midsole happily oblige. Change plans to an exposed ridge traverse, and fear not the Vibram Ibex sole features dual-compound rubber to maintain grip under your toes, but wet-weather traction underfoot and beneath the heel. Climb, descend, hike, repeatthat's what makes a Grand Traverse.
