After a lot of research, I went back to Vasque boots and am not disappointed. I've owned Vasque backpacking boots which were excellent, so the choice was not difficult. Got them a half size large and they fit perfectly. These boots are comfortable and dry, protecting from perspiration and precipitation. They've kept me dry and sure-footed while hiking wetlands, shallow waterways, cutting firewood in the snow and while working in hot, humid summer conditions. Not just comfortable on the move, they are excellent work shoes for standing on hard surfaces for extended periods. Good looking and easy to clean, especially when treated regularly with silicone, for looks more than waterproofing. Silicone also keeps the leather lighter when wet on the outside. Cooler than my tennis shoes in the heat and dry! Only problems are laces come untied easily and the top eyelets are difficult to lace. They should be the rounder metal ones. Still a great value.

I got my first pair of Vasque Hiking boots with Gore-Tex over four years ago. They remained comfortable until the end, only ever needing the laces replaced twice, and new insoles towards the end. I searched all over for a lightweight, waterproof, breathable boot with an aggressive tread, and this pair was the ticket. The day after I received them I hiked over a mile up a mountain, and had no sore spots or blisters to speak of.

I can be very taxing on my equipment and so far these boots have worked well on two separate climbs. I would say that they are very comfortable right out of the box. My only complaint would be the laces have the tendency to come untied.

These boots are great! Fit perfectly and good ankle support even though they're not high tops. Not too stiff. Good traction. I haven't tried getting them wet yet, though. Well worth the money for many miles of hiking.

I'm nearly 60 years old and have been fussy about shoe comfort since I was old enough to buy my own shoes. These boots, once they were broken in, are the most comfortable footwear in any style that I have ever worn. When I wear them, I totally forget that I have shoes on, which is what counts when judging shoe comfort. I read conflicting reports about the waterproof-ness of these boots. Two weeks ago, I had to walk in hard pouring rain for a good 30 minutes in these boots - the outside of the boots were soaked, but my feet inside were completly dry. I was amazed. I am ordering another pair when I finish writing this review. It's always good to have another pair in reserve. You never know when a shoe manufacturer will change an item just for marketing purposes. I'm stocking up.

Fantastic Boot - I recently rehabbed from knee surgery and bought myself a new set of hiking boots as a reward. These boots were good to go right out of the box with no break in. More comfortable than bedroom slippers with lots of support and protection on the trail. The outside water stays out and my feet stay warm and dry, even at a Steelers football game with snow and freezing temperatures. The support in the shoe is firm and steady and the cushioning of the vibram sole helps absorb the impact of walking and keeps my repaired knee from getting shocked with each step I take. I am thinking of getting another pair in the low cut model.

Two Thumbs Up! In my opinion the best light hiking boot I've used. Lightweight, stable, no break-in needed. Gore-Tex shrugs off the rain and keeps them breathable. OUTSTANDING BOOTS!

They are a breeze! The second time that I ever wore these boots was on a trail in the Tongass National Forest in Alaska and no discomfort at all. I hadn't even "broken" them in. Walks like a tennis shoe but the support of a boot.

Marshmallows.... That's what it felt like when I slipped these on! What an amazing feel these boots have to them. I had a pair of Asolo's and was in the process of breaking them in for my trip to Mt. Rainier later this month. As much as I tried to like them, they felt a little unstable (as if my ankle might roll) and really pinched the hell out of my toes (and I purchased them in wides). The Vasque boot almost feels like I put on a tennis shoe. The foot bed has plenty of cushion and spring and the boot fits well all around my foot and ankle (no pinch points). The new Gore-Tex XCR is keeping my foot nice and cool. I put them on as soon as they arrived (which they did in less than 24 hours!) and haven't taken them off since. I'm feeling really good about the hike now that I know I have a boot that fits well and looks sharp! Props to Zappos for the awesome customer service...I love you guys.

Most comfortable and cool boot ever! Just came back from hiking for a week in the desert. These boots were cool and comfy. They are well made; I also like the hooks that hold the laces (the hooks are long enough that the laces don't fall out, as they did on my other boots). I ordered 1/2 size up, as usual for hiking boots. Vasque boots are the best!

The only thing about the Vasque Breeze GTX XCR boot that I don't like is the top pair of lace hooks, which are narrow pointed plastic hooks, are difficult to lace and unlace. They are annoying and probably not as durable as the traditional metal hooks. I'm going to have to replace the plastic hooks with the far superior metal hooks.

Extremely light and nice looking. I can feel where the leather upper meets the mesh inside the boot and there is rubbing on pinkie toes and big joint of the big toe. Will definitely take some breaking in. Wore them for a 7 mile hike rated T3.5 -4. Stiff, supportive and they kept my ankle from twisting several times. Excellent shock absorbing and nice traction. I like them!
