Lightweight technology where it matters

The next generation of V-LITE: a considered collection of lightweight, instantly comfortable footwear with technology and performance where it matters.

V-Lite Standards:

Reduced weight and increased comfort through construction, components and materials
Minimum use of rubber while retaining outsole performance
Lightweight midsole cushioning technology


As every pound of weight on your feet is equivalent to five pounds on your back, our V-LITE technology makes a real difference to your performance. In 1976, the world’s first lightweight hiking boot, the Sierra Lite was created. It was inspired by one simple principle – instant lightweight comfort, an idea that has remained at the heart of our company for over 40 years.
