Sure, lightweight trail shoes are great when you don't have a forty pound pack on your back, but when you're weighed down with a week's worth of food and gear, you'll want a boot with a bit more beef to it; something like Vasque's Talus Pro GTX Men's Hiking Boot, perhaps. The Talus Pro is built around Vasque's supportive Perpetuum last and made with a full-grain leather upper, which is backed with a Gore-Tex membrane for waterproof and breathable protection when the trail turns wet and muddy. Don't think the Talus is your grandpa's stiff old work boot, though, because Vasque hooked it up with the cushy midsole of a lightweight hiker to keep you feeling fast and comfortable on the trail. The Talus still has a stout Vibram Nuasi XSTrek, sole, though, so you won't have to worry about it losing its tread after a single hiking season.
