So I don't buy anything without looking at reviews and comparing countless sources, and these boots don't have many reviews on other sites. After reading the no break in blah blah and a few good reviews I decided to buy them but was wary. When I got them they were extremely comfortable, I wore them around and thought I noticed some chaffing but after breaking them in (didn't really think there would be absolutely no break in time) I noticed nothing. My other shoes also broke sitting this time so they've been my wear around shoes and I have no complaints. Haven't taken them on and big hikes yet though and if your in warm weather/summer heat I wouldn't recommend them they stay real warm. I would recommend them.

I ordered 3 different styles of Vasque boots to try and settled on this one. Zappos.com has a fabulous return policy!! The initial fit seemed to be good and the features of the boot met my needs. However, after wearing them for a couple of months, I am forced to agree with several of the reviews that criticized the Vasque brand when the boots were manufactured in China. They do not have the same quality when they come from China. The toe guard piece is fitted into the shoe such that it causes abrasion on the inside of the boot over time, even after a lengthy break-in period. This condition was not initially noticeable after just a "shoe store walk down the isle". The shoe strings came apart (the core from the outer cover) rather quickly. And the gore-tex liner either was installed incorrectly or was a cheap substitute as my feet got wet just walking through wet grass for a couple of hours. I am thoroughly disappointed in these boots and feel that I paid a lot of money for a product that was manufactured poorly, even if the features of the boot were desirable. I will not purchase this boot again and all Vasque boots manufactured in China are now suspect in my mind. This was an expensive boot and I feel that I was ripped off.

I absolutely love these boots! While they didn't come out of the box feeling broken, it was still close and only took 2 days before I didn't notice it. Just spent a week in Pittsburgh traipsing through the snow and never had a problem.

I have had debilitating pain in my right foot with swelling for about 11 months. I have a narrow foot and could not find a boot that fit correctly. Upon finding these, I ordered and they are wonderful! I ordered 11 1/2 and they fit perfectly. I will order another pair but in a 12 because I needed to add an arch support and it pushes my foot forward some but overall, I love these boots. I am so grateful for finding them. Thank you.

I have had these boots for approximately two months, and have worn them almost everyday over that period, logging 35- 50 miles a week. Thoughts at this point: 1. Wear and Weather well 2. Quite comfortable Issues: 1. Top right hand eyelet of each boot ate through lace casing in ~6 weeks *side likely dependent on dominant hand 2. Toe cap, at outside, does not give/stretch like leather. Resulting in pressure applied to outside toe. *Remedied with thicker sock.
