This is our next generation V-LITE story. A considered collection of lightweight, instantly comfortable footwear with technology and performance where it matters.

  • Consideration given to minimal usage of rubber, based on end use activity
  • Lightweight midsole cushioning technology
  • Consideration given to construction methods, components and materials to reduce weight and increase breathability and comfort wherever possible
You know that whenever you see the V-LITE logo, you can be assured that you have selected the lightest shoes in our collection.

Why V-LITE? Did you know an extra pound of weight on your feet is equivalent to nine pounds on your
back? Lightweight shoes can seriously help your performance.

V-LITE really makes a difference. In 1976, the world’s first lightweight hiking boot was created, the Sierra Lite. Inspired by one simple principle – instant lightweight comfort. For 40 years this principle has remained at the heart of our company.
