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.

After having gone through several other hiking shoes built with inferior materials and non-Vibram soles, that were equal to if not more expensive, I finally went back to my old friends, Vasque. They're comfortable even under a loaded pack, and bomb-proof to boot.

I first bought these Vasque low cut shoes for day hiking back in 2013. Like them so much I got the mid height in forested for the winter. I usually order 4E in all my shoes but I found my foot fits comfortably in theses EE's. I have lots of trouble with my feet, primarily callouses on the balls of feet. I do we're a peadtric insert in these and still feel comfortable with the height inside the shoe. I would normally buy 10.5 but I've recently started buying size 11. It's made all the difference with my feet feeling great after Hikes. I have recently started wearing these for work on days I'm out doing field work. To date I've purchase five pairs of the Vasque mantra or gtx series shoes. The only complaint I've ever had is with tongue slippage. I wish Vasque would add an eyelet at the top of the tongue to prevent this from happening. Even with this I still return and bought again. Find the size true to length and on the roomy side for width. Best luck if you try these.

These shoes are very nice. The fit and comfort were excellent right out of the box. I especially like the color as they match up well with just about any color jeans, shorts, or khakis. I bought them for everyday use around the house, running errands, working in the yard, etc., however they look so nice I have used them for business casual as well. The quality of Vasque looks to be a cut above. Zappos service is a cut above as well!

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.

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.
