I bought these about five months ago in preparation for a deployment. They broke in pretty quickly, which was great. Vasque advertises them as being more breathable even with the Gore Tex. The boots were fine in the snow, but I feel like these would be way too warm in warmer Middle Eastern climates. I wore them during our training evolution and found that the Gore Tex does not hold up. I could go knee deep in water in the old Breeze 1.0s, but with these boots my socks got pretty wet on the bottoms, near the toes and the balls of my feet. If breathability and/or waterproof are requirements for you, I recommend you look elsewhere.

I almost returned these because I wasn't super excited about the actual color. The "chive" is brighter green than represented in the photos. I'm glad that I didn't. They are very comfortable and very functional. I've been tramping around Seattle in mild but variable weather and couldn't be more pleased. They provide lightweight mobility but feel tougher than sneakers. I prefer Vasque because of the size consistency and the wider toe box. I've been wearing the Salomon Eskape GTX and while tough they run narrow and hurt my feet. I might wear these camping or on a golf course, but not hiking. They don't have ankle support and I've noticed they tend to roll on uneven ground.

My normal shoe size is 7.5, and I don't know the difference between what is a B-width or M-width. I ordered a 7.5 but it was too much room in front of the toe. It turned out the 7 was a better fit. I took one hike, one hour so far. I feel that there is not enough material between the ball of my foot and the trail. The shoe feels too thin through that area. Not sure if I should just keep them, or apply the money to the full-fledged leather Vasque that I love so well.

Great boot for work and hikes. 2nd pair for me and hope they keep the model going. Stitching and fabric held up better than my Red Wings.

This shoe is awesome! I ordered up this Inhaler II Low along with the Vasque Mantra 2.0, the Keen Voyageur and the Merrell Moab Ventilator and Moab Gore-Tex. This shoe was by far the most comfortable for me. The Mantra 2.0 rubbed on outside of my ankle bone. The Keen Voyageur was uncomfortable across the top of my arch when I was walking. The Merrell Moab Gore-Tex also rubbed on the outside of my ankle bone. The Merrell Moab Ventilator was a close second to the Inhaler, but the sole on the Ventilator was stiffer making my gait less natural and comfortable while walking.

These are comfortable right out of the box. I wore them 12-16 hours per day with no problems. My feet are normal volume but wide across the front with a narrow heel. The 9W shoes provided the necessary width at front of foot without excess volume (height) as occurs with most wide shoes. It took a little practice to get them to hold snug on my narrow heel, but they ultimately worked well. The front width is classic W or EE - not a 3E or 4E. I removed the manufacturers insole and used with a full length orthotic so I cannot speak to the manufacturer's arch support.

I was looking for wide hiking shoes/boots and even in the wide option these were too narrow for my feet. If you have wide feet, I would not recommend these. I thought the color was a little different in person, a little more green than I expected but maybe I just have a monitor issue. Overall, not the right shoe style or fit for me.

I tried on a few other hikers & these fit my foot the best. I also like that they went with Gore-Tex liner and a Vibram sole. I think they could've gone with better laces. A bit on the thin side.

Love these walking shoes. They are possibly the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned, right out of the box with zero break in time. I have a wide foot, a high arch and these were a perfect fit. Easy to lace up, the laces stay tight and I plan to put a lot of miles on these shoes, walking trails, doing mild hiking and just day to day dog walking. This was my first time buying this brand and I am 100% sold. In the past I have often bought shoes a bit on the smaller size, thinking I was a size 7 1/2 but never allowed for full forward support with my toes. These are an 8 and a perfect fit with plenty of room for the big toe not to rub.

These were great, loved the look, weight and functionality, but they were too narrow for my average width feet. I returned them.

Good for all around travel, small day hiking, comfort and looks- not to replace rugged, waterproof hiking boots. 10.5 is my size and they are roomy but I have a narrow foot so are probably right on. There is no shoe good for everything. I am hoping that the special grippy sole works as well as a rugged boot does but I wanted a boot for traveling when 1-3 hour hikes are planned rather than 6-8 hr days. I think these will work. My low Vasques are getting old and I wanted a shoe a bit less clunky. And I love this brand! They make the best hikers.

Highly recommend. I'm a size 7 and purchased a 7.5 and they are a perfect fit with my heavy socks and added insoles. Good tread, good ankle support. I wore them on a day hike to break them in but they didn't even need it. They were perfectly comfortable straight from the box. My 2 complaints; they arrived with several very noticeable deep scuffs around the toes. Not too upset seeing as after my first trip in them the toes are scuffed from my own clumsiness but a bit annoying to have brand new boots never worn and already scuffed (so also know they do scuff easily) and I did feel the need to add some arch support to them but that's not necessarily a must just a personal preference of my own.

These beauties are awesome. I did something I never thought I'd do again...straight out of the box hike. I had a different pair 15 years ago I did that with and turned back in tears from blisters. The Sundowners were so comfortable the first time I slipped them on, I was desperate to get them on the trail. So with the anticipation of a possible renactement I set out in a steep hike. But I just had a good feeling. They were totally amazing. Comfortable, adorable and super durable. There was only one spot that rubbed on my big toe, mole skin will solve that issue till they are broken in. I was really floored, much better than expected. They are a pricy purchase but after receiving them and looking at them in person it's clear they are total quality. I'm almost tempted to buy another to always have those for my feet.

Love, Love, LOVE these boots! They're comfortable right out of the box. I hiked all over Iceland in them. Rocky, snowy, sandy terrain for miles and miles. Highly recommended.

Was very satisfied with their look and fit. The only drawback which is minor, I wish they had a better insert. I have been wearing them 3 days in a row now and love them.

I wear these shoes every day, and I love the comfort and support(my feet are wide w/high instep/arches) they give to my aging feet. I have ordered two extra pairs in case the shoes are discontinued. While I no longer backpack, I walk every day in comfort thanks to these Vasques.

Two weeks in I'm still liking them a lot. Very comfortable and took no time to break in at all. Worn in a snow storm and kept my feet dry throughout.

I bought these with 3 other "approach" style hiking shoes. These were the most comfortable by far. Fit was adjustable due to the laces, felt secure and supported. I have narrow feet with high arches and these seem to cater to both issues. I'm planning on wearing them for a trip to Spain where we will be doing lots hiking and city walking. These definitely feel more like very supportive running shoes or trail runners rather than a solid hiking shoe. I also didn't think I would like the look of the shoe but I do.

Boots well made. My favorite hiking boot mfgr, however, they have changed the women's last, such that even "wide" is medium. Having tried multiple years to secure wide high arched breathable boots from V, may now be stumped.

Told by Vasque that this was the closest to the Mindbenders which they discontinued. While the Mindbender was terrific these don't come close. Much narrower and a bit heavier.

Great fit right out of the box. These are very comfortable and have become my everyday shoes, and at the same time, used on many short treks in rocky conditions during the past 6 months. Not for the serious adventurer, but just the thing for modest day hiking. I will be buying another pair.
