Love these retro-bowling-looking shoes! These shoes do run a little small. I recommend ordering 1/2 to 1 size larger.

I liked this boot for its multiple width sizing, cushioned Vibram sole, toe rand protection , padded ankle for sharp scree, & mostly nubuck leather coverage from scuffs, briars & cactus, or snakes. The not so dark color for warm weather hiking is a nice choice (1/2 of the lower Continental US). However, there is a seam inside the boot that is intolerable. It is located at the mid-ankle.

I have been wearing Vasque boots for over 25 years, almost always Sundowners. So, I ordered a pair this past December but this time I had a problem right away - one boot developed a crease in the toe that hit my big toe at every step causing pain. I had them stretched in the hope of smoothing the crease to no avail. I am now the owner of another pair Vasque boots - Talus - which so far are very comfortable.

I was looking for a good quality, well fitting, moderately light hiking boot to use on the Appalachian Trail but also to wear around town and outdoors and music concerts when I wanted to dress rugged preppy. This boot fits the bill. They were comfortable out of the box but got more so after a week or so wearing them for everyday use. Although fit, comfort, durability, use and function were my primary concerns, I was attracted to the looks of the boot. I must admit the dark leather coupled with the yellow trademark and the striking red laces were a definite plus and were the final factor in my decision to purchase these boots. I have flat feet with no arches and have had a bunionectomy on one large toe and have a steel plate in my other foot where I broke my fifth metatarsal in an accident. I must have comfortable shoes. I also am a runner and an overpronator and heel striker. I am 63 and must have a shoe that protects my feet and provides cushioning and motion control. While I would obviously not run in these shoes, they do provide cushioning and support when walking or hiking extensively. I strongly recommend them.

So far so good! True to size and I felt secure on a short approach. I haven't used them much, but I have high hopes!

The first pair I bought felt a little small so I exchanged them for the next larger size and those fit really well. These shoes were comfortable from the minute I put them on - no breaking in was needed. I've been hiking 2-3 times a week in them for the last month or so and they continue to be very comfortable. Also, traction on rocks, etc. is great. I'm very happy with these shoes and I'm very happy with how easy Zappos made it to do the exchange.

I have had a hard time finding shoes to fit my narrow, long foot. This shoe fits very well, and is quite comfortable. I have barely broken them in, but so far seem like a pair I will be wearing for a long time.

Comfortable, but these get hot if worn inside after hiking leading to sweating and odor buildup quickly. By the third hike, these shoes almost asphyxiated me when I took them off. Also, these feel great while hiking or walking in fair weather, but definitely NOT for rainy or wet weather. A 30 minute hike in wet grass left my socks and feet dripping. I will have to spray them with waterproofing material.

This is a low top hiker with the blood of an approach shoe. The toe box has more room than most approach shoes I've owned and used on backpacking trips in the mountains. It's very comfortable, requires little to no break in time and has a fantastically tenacious and sticky dual compound sole. I've worn it around town some ahead of a multi-day backpacking trip to slickrock country and I look forward to a full evaluation during the trip. I wanted something breathable for the high desert. This shoe is lightweight yet sturdy, sticky and looks to be well-made. I'm curious to see how long the sole lasts with regular use on and off trail.

I've had my same pair of Vasque Sundowners for 17 years. Between casual wear and over some pretty rough trails I put countless miles on them and they have held up excellently. I've had them resoled once and having worn out the second set of soles I have decided to retire them and get a new pair. I will stick with the Sundowners!

Great boot. Probably my fourth pair. Keep in mind they are leather so they won't breathe as much as other boots out there but they are rugged and last a very long time.

I had a pair of Vasque hiking boots for many years. Wore them on hiking trips around the world. They were reliable, durable and never gave me any problems. They finally wore out; so with all of the choices of hiking boots on the market, I decided to stay with a brand that I really had faith in and enjoyed. These Vasque Breeze 2.0 GTX fit the bill. I love them.

These are the best hiking boots that I have ever owned. Since I was impressed with these, I have bought other Vasque boots as well, but this style was by far the most comfortable, most durable, and had the best long-time support. I used/abused these for over e years, lots of wet hiking and campfire kicking, and only a little cracking of the top after all that. One boot did develop a little squeak in it a year ago, but I still wear them. They have great solid toe protection and ankle support for long-term wearing. I am going to buy another pair soon.

Great shoes for the outdoors. I'm in the field a lot for my job and in varying types of environments. They keep my feet dry, and I can wear them for 10 hours straight with no discomfort regardless of the terrain. Pricey but definitely worth the money.

I've owned several other hikers in the past, most lasting many years. This is by far the most sturdy pair yet. They have great ankle support and so far have reduced fatigue at work as well. Thanks for recommending these Zappos! The cost will be easily offset by years of wear.

These are comfortable shoes that really durable & resistant. Bought them for the Boston winter of '14 and they did really well. I ordered like 5 different shoes and this one won out.

A little too robust of a boot for my hiking needs. It was stiff aka "supportive" Touted as being for those nimble and quick on the trail, it reminded me more of a "pack" boot for slow and steady hikes with a moderate-weighted pack. Sturdy ankle support was noticeably higher than most boots I own, made of quality materials, and the size 9 fit my 8.5 foot with toe room to spare. Did not seem too narrow as I read elsewhere. Cannot comment on any other features since they were not worn outside my bedroom. Surely a durable boot though!

Took a few wears to really break them in, but once I did they were worth every penny. They are extremely comfortable, which is tough to accomplish coming from someone that spends a significant amount of time in running shoes. This is my second pair of Vasque and I am hooked!

I agree with James: this shoe runs large. Size 11 feels 1/2 size too long, and I wear size 11 of multiple brands. The Vibram sole is very rugged with deep grooves so should give great traction. Walking around the house they feel sturdy yet comfortable. The leather is nice looking as well. I will have to try a 10.5 to see if they will work for me.

Ordered to replace an identical pair bought 2 years ago. Claimed to be a size 7, but way too small and not wide.
