I love these boots. I have not been hiking yet. But the fit seems perfect and they feel very comfortable. The style is great. And I love the color. Excellent treads. I believe I'm going to be extremely happy with these boots. Definitely recommend.

This is the second pair of this hiking boot I've purchased from Zappos. It's a great boot, provides lots of support and really grips the ground. I normally take an 8 1/2 but I go up to a 9 so I can layer socks. Love this boot. Regarding arch support, one reason I get this boot is because I can remove the insole and put my orthotic in, giving me the custom support I need.

These were so great! I wear an 8 shoe and wore a 9 in these to accommodate thicker socks. They did not require any breaking in. They were ready to go from day one!

I had to go a full size larger with these, in part due to thicker hiking socks. These boots were comfortable from day one, didn't even need to break them in. I am a scout leader staffing a multiple day training course in the woods (Wood Badge), so I was on my feet from about 6am-11pm on various types of terrain. My feet felt great the whole time! Very sturdy even on steep trails, soles have reliable treads but are not too heavy. My only complaint is that I wasn't crazy about the colors offered, I liked the gray but NOT the lavender detailing. I'm a 40 year old woman, I don't need pink on my hiking boots! However, the fit, support, and comfort were so outstanding I am willing to overlook the aesthetics.

I have loved the Vasque Sundowner hiking boots I have had for 15 years. But I am going on a different kind of hike and decided on the Breeze 2.0 GTX. They ran small. I wear a 7 in the Sundowner and wear and 8 in these. Just finished 4 miles on hills right out the box and no blisters! Feet feel good.

These boots are great! Were comfortable right out of the box, I have worn them on 2 consecutive 4 mile hikes and they felt great the whole time. I got them for a hiking trip in Iceland this August and they will be perfect for the colder weather, since they are insulated and waterproof. A little heavy if your doing warm weather hiking, but my feet didn't sweat in them, they are well ventilated.

Finally a pair of wide width shoes that will work for long distance hiking. Compared to my other hiking boots, they have much more cushion in the footbed, which is great for rocky terrain. Very comfortable for walking long distances and carrying heavy pack.

I have very narrow feet - 4A with a 6A heel. I ordered these in 8M because they looked so similar to the Vasque St. Elias, which do come in narrow, but are lighter, which I would have preferred. Although the Breeze and St. Elias actually have the same "footprint," the upper on the Breeze in medium is for a bigger foot than the St. Elias in narrow, and my foot sloshed around too much in the Breeze. But it is a lovely shoe, nice weight - I wish it came in narrow!

I wear 6.5 in shoes, have narrow feet. Needed a 7.5 in these. Fit my narrow feet perfectly and very comfortable right out of the box! Love the style and color. Took them hiking/walking in Colorado last week and they felt great! I did have the same problem others mentioned with the laces coming undone occasionally, but it didn't bother me. Can't wait to wear them hiking again. Love them!

I ordered these and the Solomon conquest. I chose the Vasque. I like the more solid base-stiff but not so much. We are hiking Machu Pichhu and I wanted something more substantial. I liked the wide toe box. and ordered 1/2 size larger than usual per recommendations of others. They were correct. I hiked 8 miles right out of the box!

I am a repeat Vasque customer but this is the first time I've purchased a wide shoe/boot. Like another reviewer stated, there really isn't much of a noticeable difference. Regardless, the boot held up well during an international hiking-intensive trip though it took about a full week to break them in. I also replaced the insoles with more substantial orthotics. Looking forward to the next use!

This is my first pair of hiking boots, so I do not have anything to compare them to. But these were comfortable and well made. I especially liked the loop in the back (not just a tab) to help pull them on. I think I bought half a size bigger to account for the thicker socks.

It didn't take long to break these in. Very comfortable with the right amount of support and surprisingly light weight. Typically, hikers tend to rub me raw in the widest part of my foot but not these. Quality product. Very well made.

I bought these boots for work and for a backpacking trip. Thay hardly required any time breaking them in. I found the shoes at a local store, but the deal online was too good to pass up. I ordered a Wide and they fit well. They have been great for work in the wet, sometimes swampy environment I work in and I looking foward to trying them out on the trail.

These shoes are great! I broke my ankle in 2011 and needed a sturdy hiking boot. These provide support for not only my ankle, but for my foot itself. I love these boots and they make me want to hike more!

Vasque is the boot to go to for me; this is the 4th pair in 20 yrs for this 80 yr old gal. Nice style, good fit, altho I had to get a 1/2 size larger this time. Perhaps my feet are expanding over the years! I'm very happy and look forward to wearing them on my trip to France this fall.

Boots well made. My favorite hiking boot mfgr, however, they have changed the women's last, such that even "wide" is medium. Having tried multiple years to secure wide high arched breathable boots from V, may now be stumped.

These are too narrow at the widest part of my foot which is the span right below my toes. I even ordered wide width. The chunky tongue felt uncomfortable with the boots laced tight.

These are too narrow for being marked as regular width! They squeezed the balls of my feet so bad that my toes went numb. I walked in them for just 15 minutes before that happened. They would be perfect if you have narrow feet. Keen hiking boots fit great in their regular width, so I went with them (amazing comfort, many miles hiked) I'd never had my toes go numb from a boot before- I adjusted the laces a few times and it still happened!

I tried on many pairs of boots (my last pair, ASOLO, fell apart after 20 years) before I finally decided on this boot - and many sizes as well. They do run narrow, so the W width is actually more like a M width (which all the retailers seem to be aware of this). These were a little heavier-duty boot than I originally wanted (I tried several Merrell models), but turns out for the best as my recent hiking trip to Scotland was more challenging and way rougher trails than I expected. These are good quality hiking boots. I wore a day pack (not full backpack), but trudged through very rocky trails up and down mountains, through many wet and muddy bogs (they held true to the waterproof claim), up to 7.5 hours a day. I was wearing leg gaiters too so when my foot went up to mid-calf in a bog, water was not able to leak in through the top of the boot either. ALSO, they broke in pretty quickly. I wore them on about 10-15 miles of dog walks before my trip and they were nice and broken in after that. The only reason i'm not giving 5 stars is that I started to develop a painful corn on my left pinky toe by mid-week. I think because there is a bump inside the boot on that side. I think there could have been a bit more cushioning also because the soles are heavy duty enough for very rocky terrain, yet my feet were a bit banged up by end of trip. That is probably a personal preference because it is good to be able to feel the rocks for more sure-footedness.

I have hiked close to 400 miles in these boots in the two months I've had them and have really enjoyed them. The boots run small, so I purchased a pair a half size larger than my normal size and they fit great. The boots give me fantastic ankle support, great traction on rocky trails, are breathable, move with my feet, and are super comfy. There was no break-in period at all. I only gave the boot 4 stars because they are NOT waterproof as advertised. Even small creek crossings of several inches have had water coming into my boot through the lace area and when hiking through wet grasses after it had rained, my boots soaked all the way through and soaked my socks as well. After one particular short 3 mile hike with wet grasses on the trail, my socks were so soaked I was able to wring water out of the right sock. I like the boots well enough, though, to accommodate them not being waterproof by wearing seal skin or Gortex socks on wet hikes. But if you're a puddle jumper and want true waterproof boots, I'd look elsewhere.

I ordered this hiking boot in a wide to replace my old pair which are a bit narrow across the ball of my foot and the toe box. These are still to narrow so I am returning them. I did like my old Vasque hikers so am disapointed that the wide just feels a bit looser in the heel. The people who made my orthodics say I have a narrow foot and normally I don't wear wide shoes. I like a stiffer more supportive hiker and the Vasque boots are that.
