Garmont Vetta Hike GTX -

Garmont's Vetta Hike GTX takes some features from the Vetta family of approach shoes. The lace-to-toe upper design makes the Vetta Hike feel nimble when scrambling and off trail. The Tri density microporous rubber is for better compression resistance: medium density to ensure comfort, firm density provides stability, and very firm density enhances climbing performance

Support and Cushioning:

  • Lightweight midsoles employ polyurethane with a bi-density EVA core to give you lateral support and lightweight cushion without swing-weight


  • True heel design gives you better traction during descents so you don't end up coming down the hill on your ass

Weather and Wind:

  • Gore-Tex lining provides dependable waterproof/ breathable quality.
  • Gore-Tex membrane helps keep your feet dry by blocking external moisture and letting internal vapor escape


  • New Vibram Titus outsole
  • Aggressive Vibram Jabba outsoles stick to all kinds of terrain from slickrock to the loose stuff

Lining and Layers:

  • Frame Flex Fiberglass insole provides crampon rigidity and a 2.5mm microporous rubber layer for enhanced cushioning


  • ADD construction allows instant fit, minimal break-in


  • Hook/eyelet hardware and lace webbing allow the upper to closely wrap the foot


  • Rubber toe bumper surrounds the forefoot protecting both the upper and your toes


  • 1.8 mm water repellent suede
  • Tri density microporous rubber for better compression resistance
  • PU footbed with moisture and odor management properties
  • PU inserts at heel allow both crampon security and shock absorption
To get to the most beautiful, pristine, and alive parts of this world, you have to use your own two feet, and the Vetta Hike GTX Hiking Boot with Gore-Tex will help you get there.

Garmont Vetta Hike GTX Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

i haven't used these extensively yet, but they are quite comfy. Kind of light feeling for boots. They are definitely water proof and feel pretty sturdy.
I am a runner, and do a lot of street running. i always get shoes that weight under 7 ounces because I like to feel relatively unhindered by my footwear. These are boots, but I feel relatively free in them compared to some of the other ones I have worn. Apparently they have some kind of chassis or something that is supposed to aid this, whatever it is, it works. They are sturdy, but they give enough so you can kind of feel what you are walking on, etc. It's not a bad thing, very nice.
The laces come down really far on the toe... which is weird to me. I'm not sure what purpose it serves but doesn't seem to get in the way. But like I said, these things are ugly as sin.

My wife and I have had these boots for over a year now, and they have held up well. We use them on local hikes weekly on hilly terrain. The boots required little break in, are very comfortable, and provide excellent support. We have used them snowshoeing, and our feet stayed warm and dry. This past summer, I wore them for my climb of the Zugspitze in Germany. The climb was diverse, including sections in cold, wet canyons, loose gravel, a crampon-required section on the glacier, and two lengthy via ferrata sections. The boots held up well, minus some cosmetic damage to the sides from the via ferrata sections. Overall, you can't beat these boots for the money, but I would not use them for more complex mountaineering.

My first pair of higher end hiking boots. These just took me to the top of Mt Shasta, and I couldnt be happier. Fast to break in, solid footing, superb ankle support. My only concern are the nylon loops that the shoelace runs through; I hope they dont wear through after repeated tightening/loosening. Rubber wrapped toe cap is great for scuffs. I wont buy cheaper boots again!

Negative Reviews:

have owned many garmonts in the last ten years. these started great when i picked them up in october 2010. wore them pretty sparingly; mostly pavement on the walk to work. about a week ago, the leather separated from the toe cap on the right boot resulting in a 1.5 inch tear through to the boot liner material!
they run true to size and the sole is barely worn, but due to the failure, they are now toast...
