Vasque boots helped open America's great ranges, the Rockies, the Sierras, the Tetons, the Whites, the Cascades, to name a few to people who'd never experienced the simple, profound joy of breaking a sweat above rock, gravel, snow, and ice. That was 1964. Nowadays, we're as familiar a name as Mount Rainier, Canyonlands, or the AT. But the adventure and the wonder of discovery never gets old.
