Simply a great hiking shoe. With its solid construction and Vibram soles, these Mantra 2.0 GTX for women by Vasque made hiking over uneven, rocky ground, not even noticeable on our tester’s feet. That alone was amazing! But wait, there’s more. The toebox area is wider than most which made these shoes much more comfortable (thank you!), and because they’re made with a sturdy leather, the Mantra 2.0 GTX held-up like a pro when scrambling over rocks and up the trail. The GTX model of the Mantra is available with Gore-Tex waterproof technology which of course is water repellent, but also important, the shoe was intentionally designed with seam sealing technology to keep water and moisture out. The Mantra 2.0 GTX delivered on our hike, and it’ll be a part of our wardrobe for quite some time… oh, and it looks pretty good too.
