I spent a bit more to get the Mantra 2.0 because the leather sides looked a bit more stylish than the other Mantras. I was wrong. Even though they're comfortable for hiking, they're not the all-purpose hiking-then-out-for-dinner travelling shoe.

These are great looking shoes, and the build quality is nice. But they have very little support and are not comfortable to wear. My initial reaction when putting them on was that it felt like I was standing on a brick. While that somewhat overstates the issue, the insole is very firm and rigid, and does not provide any comfort. They are far less comfortable than any New Balance or Merrell hiking shoes that I have ever worn. I am sending mine back and trying something else.

I purchased these about six months ago. I have wide feet and I normally wear a 4E in New Balance so I ordered the EE wide and I don't think I've ever owned a more comfortable pair of shoes in my life and that's saying a lot. Not very often do a pair of shoes feel so comfortable from the very first time you put them on and after six months of hiking they are even more comfortable. Very pleased with my purchase, so much in fact I am buying a back up pair for when these wear out.

First, I found the Zappos website easy to use and efficient. With its search engine I was able to find exactly the hiking shoe I was looking for in my size. Second the shoe itself was better than advertised. Often I have found Hiking Shoes difficult to break in. This shoe was easy from the beginning. It laced up easily and the shoe stayed tight. The width was perfect and allowed the foot to expand in the shoe without getting to tight. I have hiked in them three times and found them to be consistently excellent.The terrain has not been too rough but the traction is nothing short of the best.

Short and sweet: I love these shoes. I purchased them for casual hiking around our home state of Ohio. They fit well and are exceptionally sturdy without being too bulky. The Vibram sole is excellent and grippy and they were comfortable right out of the box. They did seem to run a bit long for me and I ended up reordering 1/2 size smaller than I usually go for. The width in the toebox was accurate for my size EE. 10/10, would recommend.

Great shoe for just about anything and I wear them a lot. This my third pair. The only short fall... the soles wear out quickly, in about one years time.

Absolutely great hiking shoes. I bought my first pair at an outdoor store near the Grand Canyon after the soles of an old pair of high top boots started coming apart. These were so comfortable for day long wear that I bought a second pair of a different color (brown) for tracking around London and the English countryside. These are the last pair you'll ever need!

I have worn these shoes for about the past month, and really like them for comfort and looks. They get a good trail workout since I trek 10 to 20 miles a week with my dog. The only thing I'd change would be to make the tongue about a half inch longer, on the shoe, not my dog. I'm an old guy with tender feet, and these shoes work well for me.

I love this shoe! Perfect fit 9ee(wide) with thicker winter socks and very nice looking, too (acceptable at work). I like the deep sole grid for mud and snow, too. My last pair of Merrells lasted three years on the trails with my dog, and these Vasque seem well constructed to match that. I will write if problems develop, but for now I'm very pleased.

I hate buying shoes. I can never find my size. I wear a 13 EE. This was the first out of the box shoe I have put on and known I would enjoy wearing them. I work for a delivery service and walk all day long. I have had these over a year and they are just showing signs of wear after 60 hour weeks. Good in all weather. Not for sub zero temps without heavy socks. I am about to order my second pair. I finally walked the soles down enough to wear a hole. I also weigh around 300 lbs and these shoes have taken a lot of shock off my knees.

I'm very happy with these low-rise hiking boots. I tried on a pair of Vasque Scree boots at REI but they were too narrow - definitely more narrow than a normal 14M shoe or boot. These Mantra 2.0 boots fit perfectly and I was able to hike in them immediately with no break-in period. In addition to being comfortable, they perform well on the trail. The Vibram sole provides excellent traction on wet and slippery rock. In general, I've found that you can't go wrong with Vasque.

The first pair I bought felt a little small so I exchanged them for the next larger size and those fit really well. These shoes were comfortable from the minute I put them on - no breaking in was needed. I've been hiking 2-3 times a week in them for the last month or so and they continue to be very comfortable. Also, traction on rocks, etc. is great. I'm very happy with these shoes and I'm very happy with how easy Zappos made it to do the exchange.

I agree with James: this shoe runs large. Size 11 feels 1/2 size too long, and I wear size 11 of multiple brands. The Vibram sole is very rugged with deep grooves so should give great traction. Walking around the house they feel sturdy yet comfortable. The leather is nice looking as well. I will have to try a 10.5 to see if they will work for me.

These are just what I was looking for. I've had shoes from Vasque before and they always hold up extremely well... very durable. I needed something heavier than a sneaker for some light hiking and a second shoe for all around very casual. These fit the bill perfectly. I think they are a very solid, good looking hiker/sneaker shoe with rock solid durability. I use Vasque inserts to give me the perfect fit. I just reused the ones from my last pair. It was explained to me years ago by a sales person at REI that I was a size 10 for sure but the inserts wood customize the fit. She was spot on.

Serious comfort to go with performance. So many shoes in this category sacrifice one or the other...this shoe has both all day comfort and strong in the wild. Zappos' service was, as always, excellent.

Excellent shoes, fit perfectly and are very comfortable. I have owned Vasque hiking boots in the past, and they held up for years over some of the toughest country Arizona had to offer. Hope these last half as long.

Best pair of Vasques I have owned. I played nearly a full season of Disc Golf on these and they haven't broken down a bit. Just kept the leather conditioned. You can't beat the Vibram sole either, highly recommended, worth every penny.

This is my second pair of these shoes, so I obviously really like them. Vasque shoes have a longer toe box, which have helped save toe nails. Only negative-second pair of shoes arrived with laces that were quite a bit shorter than my old ones?!? Vasque sent me free replacements (wrong color, but somewhat longer). I have a high instep, so shorter laces may not bother others. Over-all really good combination of comfort and light hiking.

Sizes run larger than normal. I usually wear between a 12 and 13 depending on brand, I could probably wear an 11 in these. I had to wear double socks with the 12s.They also are not waterproof and quite heavy. Don't expect to keep your feet dry unless it's very short grass. However, VERY COMFORTABLE.

Comfortable, but these get hot if worn inside after hiking leading to sweating and odor buildup quickly. By the third hike, these shoes almost asphyxiated me when I took them off. Also, these feel great while hiking or walking in fair weather, but definitely NOT for rainy or wet weather. A 30 minute hike in wet grass left my socks and feet dripping. I will have to spray them with waterproofing material.
