I knew I was going to love these hikers and I was definitely not disappointed! Had Vasques back in the '70s and '80s and yes they are still great. These ones may be a bit warmer that I would prefer due to the Gore-Tex lining which kind of makes the whole "inhaler" thing useless.

Really like this shoe - in fact, I'm about to order a 2nd pair, so when these wear out in a few years I'll be all set. I hike about an hour every day on hilly & rocky terrain, and the shoes are comfortable and grip the trail well, without feeling too heavy. One interesting note: the first pair I received seemed fine until I went for my first hike in the rain. I noticed that the left shoe stayed a light tan in color when wet, but the right shoe turned dark brown and wet looking - it looked as if it hadn't been correctly waterproofed. I called Zappos, and even though I had already worn the shoes a few times they let me return them & swap for a new pair, which arrived the next day! The new pair looks fine when wet, so I have no doubt the old pair was defective. Bottom line - great company & great policies towards customers.

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.

I returned this without wearing, it was an E width, but felt much narrower than most. This is not a boot for a high volume foot.

I bought this shoe for a hiking trip in Wyoming and hoped the shoes would keep my feet warm and dry (since I anticipated cold/cool weather). The shoes were great! They did exactly that, but since the weather was quite warm (low 70s) during the day, they also didn't make my feet feel too hot or sweaty. I have bunions so a large toe-box was a must (so for someone without these they would feel wider). Good ankle support and while I marked moderate arch support, it's only because I have inserts, so marking anything above this would be misleading. I did buy a half size larger (10 instead of my usual 9.5) and am glad I did since they fit perfectly with a medium weight sock. Wore these a few times to the grocery store and a few other outings before the trip but they really didn't need any break-in time. Only thing that I didn't like was the minor shin splints I had after the first day, but I'm attributing that to my lack of athleticism. Definitely glad I bought these and will check out Vasque's other shoes in the future.

Great boots! Got these for my 13 year old to wear when he mows lawns (his new business) and when he goes hiking at summer camp. He is very picky and loves these boots -- I love that his toes are protected from the mower!

My son (size 14) and I have both had several pairs of these Juxt now. We both wear them every day. He is in college and walks or rides his bike every where he goes. I am a Realtor and a builder, therefore I am on the job site a lot. We cannot wear these shoes out. I buy us both a new pair at least once a year just so the look new again, but I never throw the old ones out because I can still get a lot of miles around the garden and yard. I absolutely recommend these for everyday wear. Just a point of note, straight out of the box, these things fit like a glove, no break in period. Further, just to show how much we believe in them, and how great of a company Zappos is, my son was leaving for a two week band camp. I decided he needed a new pair his were showing a little more age than mine. I ordered them a little late and he did not get them before he left, they were to be delivered the day he left. I contacted Zappos and they re-routed the shoes to him in another state. He got the shoes the second day of the camp and has worn them every day with no break in. Yep, Vasque, Juxt and Zappos have my business for life.

We were going on vacation and expected to do a lot of walking, so I was looking for a shoe that was comfortable standing and walking in for up to 8-10 hours a day. This shoe definitely fit the bill. For the most part I liked the styling as a walking shoe. It's certainly no regular everyday shoe in that regard. But the biggest tell was the comfort. In most shoes standing for that length of time my back and shoulders get achy. This certainly wasn't the case. The fit was right on and the comfort level was off the chart. If you are looking for something where walking and standing for a length of time is an issue and you are not into big style, this is your shoe.

These boots have an indentation in the insole, inside the boot at the widest part of your foot, near your big toe. It is very noticeable when you put the boot on, and makes it immediately uncomfortable. Had to return them.

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

Great shoe! Just bought this and did a big hike in the Grand Canyon. It is so comfortable like a slipper and not clunky like other hiking shoes, but still has great tread and can handle rocky steep hikes.

For me, this is an awesome shoe! I wear it to the office, fast hike in the Appalachians, play disk golf, mow the yard, stand for hours, and just about anything else requiring a general purpose shoe. I have two pairs of the Bungee cord Rooibos tea color. I have worn these constantly for a year, and there is no end in sight. I am 5-10, 160, and these shoes are very well made. They hold up very well in my opinion for a light weight flexible shoe. As with most athletic shoes, they run slightly small. I wear a 10-D in Allen Edmond's dress shoes, and I like an 11 in the Vasque Grand Traverse. With a tiny bit of extra toe space one can hit the trail hard on descents without worry of toe injury. These shoes allow "a tiny bit of extra space" without getting too loose in the heel/ankle area. The shoes lace up very snug and hold the heel in perfect position while allowing room for the toes to spread out properly. The material around the ankle is very flexible and soft. Not too thick or too thin, perfect. The tongue is perfect size too, not too thick. I replace the insole with a "ProFoot Miracle custom molding insole" for an inexpensive, and perfect foot-formed fit. I have a lot of shoes in my closet, and this is the best all around shoe I have! Way to go Vasque! Please, please continue making these. I highly recommend this shoe.

Super comfortable. Wore them straight out of the box with no break in walking around a muddy off road event for 6 miles the first day and then between the event and walking around the rim of the Grand Canyon for 11 miles the second day. Feet stayed dry and had no problems. Great little boots. Love the color. Look great with jeans. Would buy a second pair.

Terrific boots for my style of walking, sometimes 20 miles in a day, sometimes 3. They provide sturdy support for my ankles without putting on the squeeze around my very chunky foot. These are sufficiently wide for my chunky foot, even after my feet have swollen from hours on the trail. Not as heavy as they look in the picture, I think.

I ordered two different sizes and both were just too narrow. They seemed to have good support and I loved the look but I just could not get a size that was comfortable even after a couple of days of wearing them.

This is a good boot for fast hiking with a light pack. I plan to use it on hot summer days where I will test the truth breathability of it's claim and also the Gore-Tex waterproofing. I hope it lives up to it's claim. Since I haven't actually hiked in them yet, just want to make some initial comments. They are light, nice looking sporty hikers with a high shaft, flexibility in the sole and appear to have great tread and grip. I tested them on some wet tile floor and they were superb in comparison to some of my other hikers. I really struggled with the size. I normally wear 8.5 in all other shoes, always size up to 9 in hiking boots for toe space on descents and on some boots even need 9.5 if they run small. I always put my own Walking Co. orthotics in for arch support. Both the 9 and 9.5 fit me but I opted to go with the 9.5 as there is nothing worse than hitting your toes and ending up in pain for miles.

This is a great light weight for day hikes. This shoe fits perfectly and for the first time I could hike slickrock with confidence in my footing. Love It!

For me, these ran small, about a half size. I am normally a 9 and needed a 9 1/2. The toebox is narrow-ish. By the time I really understood this, it was too late - I had traipsed around the city, developing blisters, and had thrown out the box. So no refund for me. I like the look of these shoes, and look forward to seeing them on someone else's feet! Be forewarned.

Great shoe for just about anything and I wear them a lot. This my third pair. The only short fall... the soles wear out quickly, in about one years time.

I purchased the Mantra 2 GTX to replace my Salomon's XA Comp 5, as I can't find those any more, and they would have been the most comfortable shoes ever but for one thing...They are too narrow in the little toe area and I have narrow feet! So back they go. I am so disappointed. I have literally tried every brand of shoe under the sun and cannot find a pair that has it all. I am extremely impressed with Zappos, however, and their truly amazing return policy that allows me to try with no worries. It's the only place I shop for shoes for that reason. Thank you Zappos!
