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.

Well constructed but runs small. I normally size up to a 9 but would have to go to a 10 to accommodate hiking socks. My foot just fit with thin socks but felt squeezed on the sides and the top of my toes.

I have had debilitating pain in my right foot with swelling for about 11 months. I have a narrow foot and could not find a boot that fit correctly. Upon finding these, I ordered and they are wonderful! I ordered 11 1/2 and they fit perfectly. I will order another pair but in a 12 because I needed to add an arch support and it pushes my foot forward some but overall, I love these boots. I am so grateful for finding them. Thank you.

First, I found the Zappos website easy to use and efficient. With its search engine I was able to find exactly the hiking shoe I was looking for in my size. Second the shoe itself was better than advertised. Often I have found Hiking Shoes difficult to break in. This shoe was easy from the beginning. It laced up easily and the shoe stayed tight. The width was perfect and allowed the foot to expand in the shoe without getting to tight. I have hiked in them three times and found them to be consistently excellent.The terrain has not been too rough but the traction is nothing short of the best.

I purchased these boots in May of 2015. I've hiked in them about 6 or 7 times, averaging 8 miles per hike. In August 2015, I noticed that the treads on both boots have began tearing off the sole. I will never purchase this brand again. I have Columbia boots that I purchased some years ago for half as much as these, and those boots have lasted years.

This shoe was extremely heavy and felt like it was made from cheap materials. For a similar price, there are other hiking shoes that have a much more updated design and weigh about half. It was a disappointment, as I've had Vasque boots in the past. Vasque needs to catch up with other brands on their shoe design!

Was searching for a nice looking and breathable boot with Gore-Tex, and this fits the bill. Great Vibram sole also. They run a little narrow, and so I got the wide (which seems more like a regular). Arch support seems okay, but I have high arches and may need to put in an insert (will have to see on long stretches). My previous boot was a Keen, which was great (sole eventually wore and no longer waterproof). Tried some new Keens, but they seem too wide in the heel (although fine in the front). Overall this looks to be a good boot (just wore for short stretches so far).

The insoles of these shoes were defective. It was as if they didn't really fit the shoe. Both insoles had large wrinkles around the edges that would not smooth out. They also were very narrow in the toe box area. I think they may run small.

I am writing this after having worn my boots only twice. One was a short walk in my neighborhood. The second was a 5-mile hike. The only discomfort I had during the hike was rubbing behind my right foot, which resulted in a blister. There were some steep uphills that I think caused it. My toes had no rubbing problems. I think after wearing them a few times, they'll be very comfortable. I bought my usual shoe size and they fit fine.

I wanted to like these boots. I really did. I love the look of them and I read all of the great reviews. But they hurt and bruised the bone above my ankle. I saw another woman on the trail with the same boots and the same complaint. I had to wrap and pad the area around my ankle for any comfort. After wearing the boots a few times, they stretched so much I needed more than a couple of pairs of socks for a good fit. Just too much work. They went back.

These shoes have a wider toe box than most wide hiking shoes I have tried (Keen, Merrell). The fit is quite comfortable. I'll buy these again!

Overall decent-looking boots and seem well-made, but the fit was all wrong for me - too narrow in the toes and too wide in the heel.

This is a wonderful boot. Very well made, looks good, but it is not really a wide when the shoe is marked wide. It's in reality a "D" width. I wish they'd have fit!

1st boot that has fit my 7.5 WW feet. I have return 10-12 pairs over the last few months in a effort to get a good fit. Most pinched my toes and I walked out of the heel. These fit! I would wish for longer boot laces though.

I am very happy with these Vasque hiking boots. I require a wide toe box and excellent support to accommodate my size 7.5 wide , flat feet with bunions! I an able to insert my custom orthotics,and still have room in the toe box. The heel is a bit wide, but I am hoping to wear thicker socks to remedy that. I wore them for a couple of hours a day before I took them on a hike. Hiked app. 6.5 miles on a rocky trail with no problems. My feet did stayed dry despite walking over streams and through wet grass. I love these hiking boots.

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.

Chose these for an upcoming backpacking trip. I wear trail runners a lot (Inov8) so was averse to anything heavy, clunky or stiff. These seemed a reasonable alternative to heavier styles. Fit my narrow mid foot and heel well. I replaced insoles with Montrail inserts (my standard for running shoes). Wore Injinji toe socks plus a liner. Broke in fairly quickly and performed well with a week of vigorous hiking in the Rockies. They are warm but I didn't think too hot. Rubbed slightly around one ankle but adjusting the tongue and laces helped.

I liked these a lot, right off the bat. Very comfortable fit, even for my size 14 feet. I usually put a second-party arch support in, and even with that they were great to wear. However, I am returning them after owning for only a few months, as the back end of the heel wears out very quickly if you walk on rough terrain. Walking on my roads means walking on gravel, and although the front half of the shoe held up very well, the heel area (made of different material than the rest of the shoe) became worn out and "gummy" (pebbles would lodge in it and need to be removed). I'm hoping to get a refund.

I'm reviewing this show after hiking Maine's Mount Katahdin only 4 days after receiving the shoes in the mail with very little break-in wear. My hat's off to Vasque for this exceptional shoe. While I can't speak to durability since I've only had these shoes less than a week, they performed flawlessly and exceeded any expectations I had. I've owned numerous pairs of more expensive hiking boots and shoes and I have to say that Inhaler's tread is the best of any I've owned. The grip was exceptional on Katahdin's wet granite slabs and boulders going both up and down the mountain. The comfort was also a 5-star rating. My feet felt great all day; again, with almost no break-in wear before the hike. I wish there were other color options available, as the green on this shoe isn't my favorite, and that's why I gave the style a 3-star rating. As for size, I typically wear either an 11.5 or a 12, depending on the brand, and the size 12 fit my feet perfectly. Overall, though, I these shoes exceeded all expectations and I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.

Hiking shoes in size 11 that are a true size 11. It took a while to find these! They fit well, feel quite lightweight and I very much appreciate the style. No purple, pink, mint or other silliness.

I can't say enough good about these boots! Fabulous arch and ankle support, and super comfortable from the first time I put them on. No break in time needed. I ordered a half size larger so I could use my big thick socks, but since the toe box is so roomy I may not have needed to do so. Still, with thinner socks I don't feel that the extra half size affects my stride. And they are waterproof, if you need to cross streams on your hikes.
