Terrific experience ordering from Zappos. Got my boots next day and over the next couple of days did 5 or 6 miles in the woods to see how they felt. I do an annual hike up Mt. LeConte in July and was nervous about doing it in new boots. On top of that I have been struggling with chronic plantar fasciitis. I was really surprised when it turned out to be the best of probably 18 or 20 trips up the mountain. No boot issues at all this trip and my feet felt better than they have in months. They did feel a little roomy compared to my previous sundowners, but I really like them so far.

When I received my Bitterroot boots I discovered there were two sets of shoe laces included with the boots. At first I thought the inclusion of an extra set of laces was a nice gesture and not a necessity. On these boots the edges of the lacing hooks are sharp and over a short period of time they will shred the laces (the Vasque Summit hiking boots appear to have the same lacing hooks and reviews indicate they also shred laces). The second problem I encountered with my Vasque Bitterroot boots was the rubber/synthetic cap on the toe box came unglued/delaminated from the Nubuck uppers on both boots in the same place. The two materials appear to be incompatible. This design flaw/problem makes me wonder how this boot design got passed the designers at Vasque before the boots went into production. Zappos has excellent customer service and allowed me to return these defective boots. I replaced the Vasque Bitterroot boots with Zamberlan 992 Panthers. You might want to check out reviews related to the Zamberlan 992 Panther before making a decision on which hiking boots to buy.

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

I'd also recommend: Lowa

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 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 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.

I'm not exactly outdoorsy, but after my third excursion into the Washington not-too-wilderness I decided it was time to get some real boots and stop making-do with sneakers. Debuted these puppies in a snowshoeing trip and they were worth every single penny. Great support, feet stayed dry and warm despite being literally covered in snow all day, super comfortable. I would highly recommend them. I normally wear an 8.5/9, got the 9 in these and they easily felt like a 9.5 but that seems to be the way to go here (pairs nicely with wool socks).
