Ordered a wide, because my foot is wide and it was too wide. And the boots are very brown -- too brown. Otherwise comfortable -- I've had Vasque before and I tend to prefer them. But I am returning the boots due to the color and width.

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.

These were very attractive shoes and, because they run narrow, were almost the right width for my AA feet. They do run short, a half size larger than regular was just about right. Unfortunately, they hit me uncomfortably on my ankle bone and I feared for their comfort on long walks expected in upcoming travel. Couldn't risk it and am returning them

This is not a well built boot. I have purchased this specific boot several times because they are very comfortable with my wide feet and doing lots of hiking year round (they are great in snow and wet...when newer), but they start falling apart fairly quickly. The rand starts to separate from the leather and eventually allows water/snow to seep in. On my last boot, the sole started to separate, exposing the lower to the upper boot, again a way for water to leak inside. Zappos was kind enough to take them back this past time as I had only used them for a month before separation started. Also, the sold pattern of my original boots wore out way too fast. They got rated highly for it's non-slip abilities, and it did work well, but wore out within a year of hiking, thus losing its grip. I would hope that a boot this expensive would last longer as when they are new, they fit well, feel well, and are a good looking boot, but I don't think that a strong hiking boot should wear out so fast or fall apart even fast.

This is a sophisticated looking 'hiking shoe' (and I've been trying out a lot/Merrells, Clarks, Ahnu) and I really wanted it for an upcoming trip to Italy. It's grippy and supportive with a stylish European look, what more could you ask except for it to be comfortable... Unfortunately, it's very snug, a bit short in the toe box and narrow. It looks like a sock on my foot...the ol' tightly wrapped burrito look, which would be ok if comfortable. Kind of feels like a running shoe. I don't know if going up a 1/2 size will help but I may try. Otherwise, I will have to return. Disappointing as it has so much going for it. I purchased the beluga color and it's a deep charcoal with a splash of color.

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 have very narrow feet - 4A with a 6A heel. With thick-ish socks, the 8N fits my larger foot perfectly and the smaller will do fine with a superfeet orthotic. No breaking in needed. For my high arches, the arch support was insufficient, but superfeet inserts take care of that.

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!

This is a great hiking boot as far as fit, weight, and general comfort. My only complaint would be the the little loop that holds the laces in place at the middle of the foot broke away from the boot the second time I put them on.

I wear a size 6 and have narrow feet. While the width was actually fine for me I think it would be pretty narrow for someone who is truly medium width or larger. In such a small size, I find the boot just too clunky When I went up on my toes I could not even get the boot to bend at the toe, despite wearing them several times.

Best hiking shoe I have ever purchased! I typically wear an 8.5 m and went up a full size to accommodate my orthotic insoles and they fit perfectlly. Very solid on rocky trails and no blisters the first time wearing them. Pretty cute, too, for hiking shoes.

Nice shoe, very smooth interior for wearing without socks. Supportive, and very well constructed. Sole is very grippy. Could be a little lighter. The main problem for me with this shoe is that the heel is much higher than the toe. I normally only wear very flat shoes, so this otherwise great shoe just would not work for me.

The shoe is very nice, not sure about long hikes though. My main problem was it was too narrow in the toe box, could feel might little toe scrunching. I had Mindbenders before, which have a bigger toe box.

Wrong shape for my long, narrow feet. These were wide and dramatically too short - my toes were pushing up against the front. Gorgeous green color, though. Too bad.

These are pretty good lightweight boots. In contrast to most reviews here, I'm making this report after a few hundred miles of use. On the plus side, they have been comfortable for my narrow feet, with little rubbing or blistering on my foot bottoms or toes. They are not intended to be waterproof, and as a result are somewhat cooler than most boots. On the negative side, the soles are not as stiff as I'd like them to be. More seriously, there's a diagonal seam that you can see in the picture, running down both sides from the achilles tendon to the arch. There's an internal stiffener that follows this seam. On uneven ground when my body leans upslope, this stiffener digs painfully into my outside ankle bone, in some cases scraping off skin.

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!

In keeping with the Vasque name, these shoes are beautiful and very well made. Let me start off with my foot type: narrow heel, high arch and wide toe area. I ordered my usual size of 7.5 and could barely get my foot in them. They were too short and very narrow in the toe box area. Sizing up wouldn't fix the narrow issue in my case. My very old Vasque Southern Traverse is slightly narrow in the toe box but nothing like this Grand Traverse. Sadly I will have to wait for another trail shoe to come out - maybe the Ultra SST.

Hiked Zion Narrows in this shoe and it was pretty perfect. Toes didn't get bruised, sand and rocks stayed out, no blisters after hiking 4 miles and grip was excellent. The draining sole is a unique feature and really made this shoe a step above others on the market - you really felt comfortable in the water, not like you were wearing flippers as you do with some water shoes. Once you were on dry ground the shoe dried in 10 minutes. Looking forward to using this shoe for kayaking in the future. I am a woman, but ordered the men's shoe because the women's shoe was too narrow. This worked perfectly, as the women's and the men's shoes are nearly the same except different colors. However, I think both the men's and women's run narrow and a size small. Also, I did wear socks with this shoe for the dry hiking parts of the trail, so I can't fully attest to its comfort without socks.

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.

Not sure why, but the d width did not feel wider and still had concern that on left side of left foot would rub when going downhill as much as issue with B width. It was not a bulky boot compared with Breeze, so I like it better. Really wanted this won to work, but not confident enough would not rub, and I loved my old Vasques.
