A glove-like fit and packed with technologies, the V-LITE Flash Hike i Waterproof is the best leather hiker on the market. This boot features a Pittards leather upper, a top quality leather that delivers permanent water resistance and is highly durable. On the inside of the boot, a soft and anatomically formed Pittards leather collar provides extreme comfort. Our Dri-Tec waterproof, breathable membrane keeps the water out and keeps your feet dry. We have also added our i-shield water and dirt repellent coating, which is dirt resistant and helps maintain the great look of these boots. Underfoot, the anti-microbial and odor-resistant OrthoLite Impressions® sockliner with slow recovery foam delivers cushioning and a durable nylon 'fork shank' provides stability with every step. These boots are also equipped with the innovative Vibram® RollinGait System, which supports the natural roll of the foot and reduces overall fatigue, especially while walking downhill. Lastly, a durable Vibram® rubber outsole provides traction on nearly any surface.

V-LITE FLASH HIKE I WP is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots. These are light-weight and very comfortable boots. I am breaking in my second pair. They fit beautifully, give plenty of support without plenty of weight, and the vibram soles are terrific in snow and on ice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally.... At last a boot with an aggressive sole that works in soft, top-soil / grass - semi soft mud trails. I get super traction going both up and downhill in these. For instance - hiking my local ski slopes in Summer. Grass, leaves, moss and semi soft muddy conditions - these boots rock. I've walked sideways down steep sections, only to slip on a particularly soft moist area - and the aggressive "Knobs" caught and then allowed me to "steer" in a controlled slide....places where other boots have let me down. I chose these because the round lugs are very similar to Rugby Boots - and I know how well those work in mud. Leather is soft and the toe Box feels good first time on. I'd buy these again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought these boots about 7 months ago, incredible comfort, by far the most comfortable boot I have ever worn, soft leather very little break in and the insole is fantastic, only two things slightly negative, leather is very soft so it damages easily, toe protection would take care of that, and I tie them very loosely in the summer time they get a little hot, buying a second pair for reserve just in case they stop producing them.

Do you have this boot in a 15 medium and if not do you plan to soon?

Asked by: Mick
Hello Mick. The V-Lite Flash Hike has not been carried forward this year. For a 15 medium I would look into the Altitude V i WP which will be a waterproof boot with a leather upper. It is similar to the V-Lite Flash Hike in that both boots features a "Dri-Tec" waterproof bootie membrane, "i-shield" hydrophobic and stain repellant finish, and our "Ortholite Impressions" insole for cushioning. Thank you for your question.

Should I apply Nikwax waterproofing wax before first use?

Asked by: Camerov
Hello, The V-Lite Flash Hike i WP is constructed with "Dri-Tec" technology. That is a waterproof bootie membrane inside the boot which encases the foot to prevent any water from entering. This boot is also treated with "i-shield", a hydrophobic and stain repellant upper protection. These two in combination ensure you can confidently hike in wet terrain. If you would like to add another layer of protection, you can apply Nixwax or a waterproofing wax. While it is not necessary before first use, it would be a way to increase the longevity of the boot throughout its lifetime. Ensure that the version of the wax is specifically for leather use. Thank you and happy hiking.
