Vasque's #1 selling crossover shoe is, without surprise, the Vasque Mantra. It's been that way for the past few years, but Vasque isn't the type of company to settle. They've opted to make their best- better, by introducing the new Mantra 2.0.
Check out the original Mantra
The updated version- Mantra 2.0- features a more supportive, polyurethane mid-sole, versus the EVA molded sole of the original. The difference being, EVA offers a more out-of-the-box comfort, whereas PU takes time to break in and doesn't pack out quite like EVA. A revised tread pattern on the Mantra 2.0 has a comparable aggressive layout, but is designed more for long distance hiking. The 2.0 still has Airmesh, a Goretex option and a Vibram sole, but has more Nubuck on the shoe's upper- increasing durability and support.
If you're a walker or a hiker who is thinking about some new shoes, check out the Vasque Mantra 2.0.
