Hiked Zion Narrows in this shoe and it was pretty perfect. Toes didn't get bruised, sand and rocks stayed out, no blisters after hiking 4 miles and grip was excellent. The draining sole is a unique feature and really made this shoe a step above others on the market - you really felt comfortable in the water, not like you were wearing flippers as you do with some water shoes. Once you were on dry ground the shoe dried in 10 minutes. Looking forward to using this shoe for kayaking in the future. I am a woman, but ordered the men's shoe because the women's shoe was too narrow. This worked perfectly, as the women's and the men's shoes are nearly the same except different colors. However, I think both the men's and women's run narrow and a size small. Also, I did wear socks with this shoe for the dry hiking parts of the trail, so I can't fully attest to its comfort without socks.

This is my second pair of these shoes, so I obviously really like them. Vasque shoes have a longer toe box, which have helped save toe nails. Only negative-second pair of shoes arrived with laces that were quite a bit shorter than my old ones?!? Vasque sent me free replacements (wrong color, but somewhat longer). I have a high instep, so shorter laces may not bother others. Over-all really good combination of comfort and light hiking.

Not sure why, but the d width did not feel wider and still had concern that on left side of left foot would rub when going downhill as much as issue with B width. It was not a bulky boot compared with Breeze, so I like it better. Really wanted this won to work, but not confident enough would not rub, and I loved my old Vasques.

I have five pairs of these shoes. I like to wear a different pair of shoes every day. They are well made and fit my feet nicely. (Vasque shoes are made by Red Wing.) They are long lasting and sturdy. I would definitely buy more pairs if they came in more colors.

I'm very happy with these low-rise hiking boots. I tried on a pair of Vasque Scree boots at REI but they were too narrow - definitely more narrow than a normal 14M shoe or boot. These Mantra 2.0 boots fit perfectly and I was able to hike in them immediately with no break-in period. In addition to being comfortable, they perform well on the trail. The Vibram sole provides excellent traction on wet and slippery rock. In general, I've found that you can't go wrong with Vasque.

These boots are the one for me. Well made, good cushion footbed, structure but not stiff. I tried about 6 pairs of name brands, Vasque by far was superior quality & feel. I did have to order a 1/2 size larger than normal.

These boots are very well constructed. I haven't been on any hikes as of yet, but they are comfortable just walking around. No hot spots. I bought the wide size and it fits me well.

These are definitely great water shoes. They were extremely grippy, very light, and would keep all the dirt and pebbles out. Having drainage in the bottom of the shoe is a great feature not many water shoes have. And they are supportive enough you could do a run or hike in them. However, the sizing is terrible. Like most Vasque shoes these run narrow, but these were extremely narrow and I think a full half size small. I returned them and ordered the men's shoe, which is essentially the same shoe but slightly wider and green. However, the men's shoe runs a full size small. The men's size 7 is equivalent to a smallish women's size 8.

Really pleased with these shoes - look and feel great. Very lightweight in comparison to my old trail shoes. Haven't hiked in them yet, but am confident they'll do the job. Usually wear a true 7.5, ordered an 8 for some room with thick socks and to prevent toe jamming, pleased with the 8.

I tried 4 sizes and could not get one to fit properly. The width is so narrow at the toe section that it was impossible to get a good fit. Zappos is great though.

These boots run quite small. I wear a woman's 12 in dress shoes, but wear a man's 12 for running shoes with super thick Thorlo socks. I'm wearing a man's 13 in these boots with medium weight socks, thinner than what I wear with my running shoes. They provide great ankle support and lace up well. Very solid boot for backpacking with 20+ pounds.

Love the look of these. And they are definitely durable. But they rub against my ankle. Too uncomfortable. Also runs a little big.

I bought these when I found that I could no longer get the "Sundowners" in black to walk my mail route. I like the added toe guard (rubberized cap on the toe) The sole is just as hard and slick as my Sundowners were but the tread is more open (not the classic waffle lug) and maybe I'll track in less stuff. Right now I need to get used to three things (compared to the sundowner): The tongue has an extra piece of leather on it that doesn't lay quite right at times. The extra eyelet at the ankle. And how the laces are hard to move through the eyelets to lock your foot in place.

I have hiked close to 400 miles in these boots in the two months I've had them and have really enjoyed them. The boots run small, so I purchased a pair a half size larger than my normal size and they fit great. The boots give me fantastic ankle support, great traction on rocky trails, are breathable, move with my feet, and are super comfy. There was no break-in period at all. I only gave the boot 4 stars because they are NOT waterproof as advertised. Even small creek crossings of several inches have had water coming into my boot through the lace area and when hiking through wet grasses after it had rained, my boots soaked all the way through and soaked my socks as well. After one particular short 3 mile hike with wet grasses on the trail, my socks were so soaked I was able to wring water out of the right sock. I like the boots well enough, though, to accommodate them not being waterproof by wearing seal skin or Gortex socks on wet hikes. But if you're a puddle jumper and want true waterproof boots, I'd look elsewhere.

The boots were to big or loose in the thickness from top to bottom, the length and width were good just to roomy, but my husband loved them otherwise.

I like Vasque boots. But, did not like this boot. The eyelets. Poor design with only the top eyelet set substantial enough to pull lace tight the rest are thin leather that will not last. If the top three were metal, I would have kept the boots. Comfort was good.

Ordered these and so far are very pleased - love the look, esp the orange soles. They are quite comfortable, but I ordered a 1/2 size up from my regular shoe size. Overall nice looking shoe for walking, hiking, etc.

The fit is fine. My problem with them is the poor construction. I love Vasque footwear but I do not like these shoes. The reflective shapes on the toes started falling off within two weeks and the insole started to peel up from the heel forward soon after that. I have only had these for about six weeks. The outer sole is durable though. I wear these shoes everywhere but I am not hard on them.

Comfortable to wear, easy to tie. I ordered Wide and I can wear them, but I wish they were even a bit wider. Although waterproof, one drop came through the mesh.

These boots were perfect. I ordered two pairs, 8½ and 9, because sometimes I am in between sizes. I ended up wearing the 9. I was doing a week of volunteer work on a horse farm and needed something comfortable, water proof, durable, and not too heavy. They also had a toe that would protect my foot even if a horse stepped on my foot. Fortunately, I did not get to test that out, but I felt very safe. These boots were perfect. I wore them from the box to the farm and not a day of break-in was required. These boots are stylish enough that I will wear them at home during snow, etc. I looked at other more expensive boots, but choose these because of the great reviews. Now I can add another. I loved them.
