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.

I am an 11N, with narrow heels, these shoes fit like a glove. They are light and grip like crazy. They squeak on hard floors! They are very nice for my intended water landing , river crossing, hiking shoes.

These boots are great! Were comfortable right out of the box, I have worn them on 2 consecutive 4 mile hikes and they felt great the whole time. I got them for a hiking trip in Iceland this August and they will be perfect for the colder weather, since they are insulated and waterproof. A little heavy if your doing warm weather hiking, but my feet didn't sweat in them, they are well ventilated.

I really wanted to like these, as I was looking for something I could hike in and go into the river in. They felt great on, had a convenient pull tie, and had breathable mesh and tiny holes on the bottom for drainage. I had to return them though because there was something scratching me from the inside. It looked like a tiny defect where something was poking out of the protective material around the seams. If the Rykas I ended up keeping don't work out I will re-order and hope I get one that doesn't have any defects.

These are amazing shoes. Lightweight, super comfortable, sleek, and still rugged. I got my regular size and they fit perfectly. Great cushion and arch support. The beluga color is a beautiful rich grey. Perfect shoe.

These felt comfortable wearing them around the house. Finally took them out on the trail and they were awful. Heavy and painful. All my toenails were black even though I bought a size larger than normal, the tongue wore a bruise and blister. I have tried breaking them by wearing for short periods, tried stretching with boot stretchers, tried lacing differently. Nothing works. They are just taking up space in my closet until I can take them to the Salvation Army.

I bought these for my wife to replace vivo barefoot shoes that were delaminating. These are so far, fantastic. I already have a pair of my own which I have used for hiking & kayaking. They really drain well and keep out debris.

Excellent fit and quite comfortable. Haven't worn them on a hike yet, but I'm sure they'll be perfect. Don't know why they named them with Chartreuse in the color, that made me pause, but they are mostly a rich brown. Excellent Service! And they look terrific too.

The most comfortable shoes I have ever put on my feet. I just got them so I don't know how well they will hold up, but the traction is awesome, the comfort is great, and they look nice enough to wear to work once I put in some brown shoe laces.

I have had three, and now four, pairs of the Vasque Mantra. The redesigned fourth pair is sized differently. It is larger overall and the toe box is roomier. I wish I had ordered a half size smaller. I can wear these, but only with a heavy wool sock. I wish I had returned them, but was so sure, based on previous experience, that they would fit, I put them on and rocked on with my day. Learn from my experience! Try them on and walk around in the house longer than two minutes to make sure the size is right.

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.
