Great shoes overall. They are truly waterproof and were comfy from the first day I put them on. My only complaint is that the leather roughs up rather easily...on the toe in particular. Otherwise great hiking, farming and exploring shoes.

These are my first pair of hiking boots and I highly recommend them! They are very comfortable and have little to no break-in period. I am usually a size 7 and I ended up ordering a 7.5 (normal width) since I knew I would be wearing them with thicker hiking-style socks. I wore them all day hiking in the trails at Muir Woods in CA and they were very comfortable, durable and sturdy.

I really like these boots. They're comfortable, supportive, with a good grippy tread, but still light and not clunky. They do seem to run narrow and short. I ended up having to get the next half size up.

Highly recommend. I'm a size 7 and purchased a 7.5 and they are a perfect fit with my heavy socks and added insoles. Good tread, good ankle support. I wore them on a day hike to break them in but they didn't even need it. They were perfectly comfortable straight from the box. My 2 complaints; they arrived with several very noticeable deep scuffs around the toes. Not too upset seeing as after my first trip in them the toes are scuffed from my own clumsiness but a bit annoying to have brand new boots never worn and already scuffed (so also know they do scuff easily) and I did feel the need to add some arch support to them but that's not necessarily a must just a personal preference of my own.

Love, Love, LOVE these boots! They're comfortable right out of the box. I hiked all over Iceland in them. Rocky, snowy, sandy terrain for miles and miles. Highly recommended.

I have narrow feet and long toes and normally wear a size 8 but opted for size 8.5 and it fits well. Very comfortable and not bulky or too padded.

Hiking shoes in size 11 that are a true size 11. It took a while to find these! They fit well, feel quite lightweight and I very much appreciate the style. No purple, pink, mint or other silliness.

These boots fit well. Very comfortable the first time I put them on. I have a narrow foot and these boots work for me.

My oh my oh my! These are the dreamiest hiking boots I have EVER owned. I am so glad I looked into something other than the super prevalent brands. The nubuck leather will outlast me and I love their classic look, especially since most boots these days are all synthetic. I am a true 11 and there was just enough space in the toe box for thick socks or to allow for swelling from long hikes. I am a medium width and I found the shoes to be snug and secure but no pinching. Vasque is part of the same company as Red Wing Shoes, which is known for quality products. Worth the investment.

Outstanding boots! Of course Vasque is quite famous for their awesome boots. They are a wee bit stiff, mostly because I have small feet and it will require some breaking in the awesome Vibram sole. They would be perfect for hiking in the mountains or on rocky terrains. I will be wearing mine (primarily Purchased) in the bush in Africa, with good quality socks. I nee to start breaking them in. I recommend them!

Great boot! Perhaps runs just a tad on the narrow side. Good support without feeling like you're walking on wooden planks. Very stylish too!

Wowzeeee, these are the best hiking boots I have ever owned! They fit perfectly, not bulky like most hiking boots, and make for a smooth ride even on pavement. I was hesitant because it was a steep price for me but worth every penny.

Excellent quality; love the extra pair of "more conservative" laces; price is always an issue with me...so I found them pricey...but they have the features I was looking for waterproof, insulated, and in my small size 5 / 5 1/2. Time will tell how durable they will be. Though they seem to be well constructed. Warning...the tread picks up mud, sand, etc. quite easily. Stomp before entering a building. Nice not to have to buy from the children's department. Plus, you can't beat Zappos free shipping.

Breaking in not needed. Fits true to size. Purchased the Sundowner GTX 20+ years ago when it was made in Italy. Decided to try this model and am very happy. Just purchased another boot in different color for work.

These were great, loved the look, weight and functionality, but they were too narrow for my average width feet. I returned them.

Overall the quality of the boots were mediocre. for casual use they are fine. But the as soon as I took them off trail for work the top of the boots started to come appart. I have had to repair this area 3 times and i dont know how much more it can take. They are less than a year old and im disappointed that they will not make it. sadly the reat of the boot is in realy good condition.

Overall decent-looking boots and seem well-made, but the fit was all wrong for me - too narrow in the toes and too wide in the heel.

I was sure I'd love these, but the toe breaks in an odd place when walking and was painful. Too bad, they are gorgeous boots!
