I love this shoe! Perfect fit 9ee(wide) with thicker winter socks and very nice looking, too (acceptable at work). I like the deep sole grid for mud and snow, too. My last pair of Merrells lasted three years on the trails with my dog, and these Vasque seem well constructed to match that. I will write if problems develop, but for now I'm very pleased.

I have had these boots for 20 years. Backpacking, hiking and hunting. The leather is beat, but they are still 100% waterproof, and tread is great. The only thing I have done to them is changed shoe laces. These boots are worth the money. Nothing compares.

I walk every day. They're comfortable right from the start! I've been buying Vasque for years and never been disapointed.

What can I say? I love the boots, but after only about 12 miles of moderate hiking, the sole has started to separate from the uppers. I put another roughly 35 miles on them and they've still held together which is good. In addition I believe they still are waterproof which is obviously important, but I'm not sure what to think about their integrity. I have yet to contact them about warranty - that will be interesting. As far as how they felt, the support was fantastic. I could stand on a pointed rock and it would distribute the point across a comfortably broad area. They did well guarding against rocks and overall were comfortable. I would certainly say they are fairly warm, but for me, it is worth it to have waterproof, taller boots. In addition, the leather holds up very well to rock scuffing and general wear very well. I also like how it looks. Other then how they held up, I have absolutely no complaints about how they felt. I had to order a wide boot. Even though none of my other shoes are "wide" this one certainly needed it as the toe bed is otherwise very cramped. I had a standard width boot earlier which was no fun. Wide seemed adequate. Especially if you have Merrells, the standard width is super small. I don't think it is related to my boots, but I do roll my ankle on almost every hike. I think these boots help since they are higher support the ankle and make the roll not as bad. Who knows, though, maybe they contribute to the problem in the first place? I would recommend these if they would have held together for me, but I certainly can't since they started coming apart so quickly. Especially for something this expensive - it's just not worth it.

Comfy stable good looking. I take a 12 and these are correctly sized. Good for urban walking & trails. Soles are stiff for biking, a bit hard for distance running on asphalt.

The Sundowners are great boots-the best I've ever owned. I used to work at an outdoor supplies store and had the opportunity to compare the features of other premium brands. The Sundowners are an excellent mid-weight boot, with a tough full-grain (not suede or split leather) leather upper, a Gore-Tex membrane for permanent waterproofing (not just water resistance), and fast, secure lacing. My first pair lasted through 10+ years of mountain, desert, and casual wear. As of this writing, the same boots were priced about $30 less on Amazon.com with free Prime shipping and more size & width selections.

Excellent boots. I'm forced to wear stiff sole boots like these with my orthotics due to a foot problem, but these are comfortable. I just wish Vasque would make suede and brown laces like the Wasatch line. The colors for this line are too loud for me.

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.

These are very comfortable and they provide great support in uneven terrain. The sizes are pretty close to other brands I own. I appreciate the ability to get a narrow shoe size. I will update after my Machu Picchu hike.

Vasque makes great boots for hiking. I wore them for a full day to break them in and they felt like a slippers by the time I took them off. I have worn them a few times since and still really like them. The big test will be in the mountains of Colorado on an elk hunt! My orthotics also fit in the foot beds just fine.

I have owned several pairs of Vasquez hiking boots over the years and have liked them all but the Taku GTX is by far the most comfortable. I feel like I am walking on an air cushion. The treads also provide really good grip. I am quite happy with these boots.

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.
