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.

Love this boot! It has just the right support for a long day hike. The wide toe box is perfect and the ankle hooks allow the hiker to separate toes from ankle and use a Sherpa Knot easily. Also, it has the most important Vibram Sole, a must on rocky trails. With the addition of the Super Feet, it is a light, but supportive boot. I do not have a wide foot, but found the wide size to be perfect.

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.

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.

Very comfortable hiking boot! Owned a pair of Lowa boots which were not as flexible or comfortable. Vasque has also improved the shoelace hooks - instead of plastic they are now metal (the plastic ones broke before the boot wore out).

I've had many pair of Vasque before - I really liked that these were available in wide. But there is something really off about these. Toward the front of the heel just before the foot arch, there is a lug on the sole that is longer than all the others. You can feel it when you walk. This may be good if you are an overpronator as it may keep the foot in a more neutral position; however, I'm a pit of an underpronator and this lug seemed to force me to roll my foot onto my baby toes. It's a very unnatural feel and no way I could put up with it for a long or difficult hike. I also don't like the cloth eyelets. I've had bad experiences with these ripping out when you try to lace tight. I'll be staying with my Lowa Renegade mid-wides.

Nice shoe! I broke my leg last year and I am having some nerve issues. Purchased this shoe because of its comfort and support. The sole is not smooth (common in hiking shoes) and that is bothering my feet when I walk more than 15-20 minutes, other than that it is more comfortable than most I have tried. Still I would recommend this shoe to anyone without nerve trouble.

from New York, NY

I wanted hiking boots that I could use in NYC as snow boots, and also have on hand for actual hiking. I have narrow heals and large bunions on both feet (despite being 24) so I always need a wide toe box. I got a W and they fit nicely over my bunion. I also like that the boot goes up relatively high, since I've sprained my ankles in the past and wanted support. Sadly, they were too small. I wear anything from a 6.5W in flats to a 7.5 in boots, so I got the 7W because I didn't want my feet swimming around in my shoe as I hiked, and my toes hit the front of the boot. I'm returning and not bothering to try the 7.5W because the soles felt very thick and not very flexible. I'm not sure if another boot's sole would be more flexible, but I'm hoping.

I was surprised to find that this boot did not fit as my foot tends to run narrow. However, I couldn't seem to pull the laces tight enough to support the middle of my foot and yet my big toe and pinky toe were still squished against the sides. This boot looks great, it's lightweight, breathable, and I fully trust the Gore-Tex waterproofing.

Really wanted to like these. However, after hiking for one hour, the toebox jammed my big and little toes together. I ordered a wide, but my toes hurt so bad! Luckily, I brought another pair of Keen hiking boots and my toes felt immediate relief.

I had high hopes for this boot, but within seconds, my right ankle was feeling a hard rub on the inside. I readjusted my socks, retied the boot, stood up, and felt the same rub as I walked around the house. Unfortunately, this boot hits some major pressure points and renders it wholly uncomfortable. Couldn't walk a mile in these shoes. Come on, Keen. Give me a boot to replace the Oregon PCT and I'll be a happy hiker again.
