Nice boots. Very light. Bought for a recent ruk and they performed very well under the weight of a pack.

Probably the best boots I've ever owned! They are hand crafted in Italy and fit as if they are custom made to my foot. Very good arch support and provide an exceptional foundation for any activity. Fit seems true to size. Would definitely purchase again - although probably won't need another pair for years and years as they are so well made!

I recently purchased the Zamberlan Solda NW GTX boots and I am very happy with my decision. I have been looking for a quality pair of casual/light hiking boots that provided both comfort and good looks. These boots did not disappoint. They were more money than I wanted to pay but you can tell right away that you purchased a pair of high-end boots the minute you take them out of the box. They even came with another pair of laces (orange) in case you want to change the look. Great service as always from Zappos.

I guess it's all about trade off's?? I wanted a light hiking boot for faster day hikes where I'm carrying under 20lbs. I'm not a fan of ultralight footwear as I weigh 195lbs and hike on rough terrain here in New Mexico. These seemed like they would fit the bill. They fit pretty good right out of the box. I have a fairly narrow foot and I was able to tighten the laces enough to get a nice secure fit, but they are wider in the forefoot than my normal go to brand of boots Lowa. The ankle support was great and good cushioning in the heel but the cushion was minimal in the forefoot. The tread is also very minimal and I can't see these lasting more then a few months of hard use. This is not a boot I would ever use on rough terrain or off trail. Smoother trails it would work out ok. After my first 6 mile hike a rock cut a chunk out of the tread near the heel and I was having to carefully watch where I placed my footing and rockier terrain because I could feel sharp rocks in the forefoot area. I couldn't imaging caring a heavy pack all day in rocky terrain with these boots. If these things were only a bit beefier and used a PU midsole I think they would be perfect. But for now they are going back to Zappos and I'll try the Asolo Fugitive GTX as a light hiker.

Returning them because these boots are too big and too heavy. Per information on Zappos website, these boots weight 1 lb 11 oz or if that is the weight is per each boot, two should be 3 lb 6 oz. The accrual weight is 4.2 lbs.

I really liked this boot - comfortable out of the box, nice leather, easy lace-up, and comfortable around the ankle. I also ordered my regular size and and wore with hiking socks. The reason I returned it is because, compared to the Lowa Mauria, I liked the Lowa a bit better. The Lowa is higher up on the ankle and I felt more support there as well as a little bit better arch support. (However, I am a person who likes and needs a firm support.) The Lowa has a toe guard and the Zamberlan does not. These last two items were not the deal breakers. Had I not found the Lowa Mauria, I would have kept the Zamberlan Vioz GT. Give it a try as it is a great boot.

Awesome hiking boots! I wear a true size 8 almost always - in these I wear a 38. I know, I know, according to Zamberlan size chart I should wear maybe the 38 but probably the 39. Thanks to Zappos and their fantastic shipping/returns, I determined that the 39 is too large and the 38 is the keeper! Can't wait to wear these out and about!

I have had these boots for 3 years and the "style" hasn't changed in the new model. My boots look like hell but they are durable. I wear them for hiking (no kidding) but I also use them as construction boots. They do not have a steel toe, but they look like they do, and I haven't been caught yet (as a renovation volunteer, I see idiots who come to the site in gym shoes, so who would bother about me!). No, the paint spots won't come off as they would if the finish weren't porous, but I didn't buy them for looks. Anyway, I wear a 7 or 7.5 and went with a 7.5 despite several people saying these run large. I don't know anyone who would wear these without boot socks, so I am glad I ordered on the large size. Finally, they were comfortable from day 1 -- what leather boot has no break-in? -- these -- and they are just as comfortable today. Too bad I can't wear them to work. Business casual they aren't unless you live in Portland.

I got these to compare to the Asolo Reston, which I was considering. For me the fit of these is better - they are a bit wide.I kept these instead of the Asolo's. I tested them on out on an uphill climb (the Grouse Grind in Vancouver, which is not what I bought them for) and they worked well - no hot spots and no break-in required. I am usually a 10 1/2 and these fit that perfectly.

Bought for a Montana hiking trip. Have worn them for a few small hikes thus far and they are very comfortable and no hot spots. A very well made boot. Also, I think that Zappos has the best customer service in the world! Would buy this boot (from Zappos) again.

These are fantastic boots. As others have noted, there is no break-in time at all; they were comfortable immediately. I have long toes, and finding shoes that fit is a perpetual problem. These boots fit! They are comfortable! They are great in snow and rain. My only wish is that Zamberlan would make a WALKING shoe for summer--and make it the RIGHT way in ITALY. I am willing to pay for it!

I've been wearing these boots for about 5 years now. They have been the best boots for hiking and backpacking that I've ever had. I have problem feet, and need a lot of support. These have worked perfectly. Most shoes kill my feet after 2 miles, and lighter weight boots after 5 miles. I can hike all day in the these boots. The boots have held up very well. If I clean them up after a hike, and apply the proofing cream Zamberland recommends, they look like new again. The Gore-Tex has been great--these boots really are waterproof. The only times my feet have been wet is when I got water in above the ankle. The fit is good for my feet. I have skinny heels, but need a wider toebox. They are borderline narrow in the toebox for me, but really just right I guess, because they hold my foot snugly, but without causing any blisters or pressure points. I expect these boots to last for many more years. They're expensive, but worth the price tag.

Bought these for my wife because I have a pair in the Men's Version. Great support for side hilling, and the aggressive tread keeps you from slipping where a lot of other boots will give way. Stay tight all day. Not one sore spot on my feet or ankles. Submerged completely in water and no leakage after a year of use. Great style to wear around town or in the hills.

Accurate in size. Seems like a good boot. Problem for me was I have narrow size 10 feet and my heel was sliding up and down with each step.

The shoe is an overall winner. I did choose to use super feet insoles to replace the inadequate insoles that come with the shoe. I find that most shoes need an aftermarket insole in order to provide the most stability and cushion. The ankle support is great and the shoe is very lightweight for being a hiking shoe. It is certainly a shoe for the heavy backpack carrying hiker. However, it does fit the niche for someone who wants a lightweight, quality constructed shoe that offers water as well as additional ankle protection.

Very comfortable and solid feeling. But they are too slippery on wet rocks for what I need.

Wow is all I can say about these boots! I have been ardently looking for a replacement for my 30 year old Vasque all leather hikers. I had all but given up on finding a pair of boots that were comparable to them. My feet are narrow, and I love to hike but my old Vasques were just worn out! Voilà, I came upon the Zamberlan Vioz GT! They reminded me of my Vasques. I am on week two of wearing them, have done walking as well as hiking. Noy a blister or sore spot one. These boots are an answer to my prayers! I am truly impressed with the workmanship and attention to detail. I do wear orthotics inside my boots. The boots accommodate them quite nicely. They are pricy at first glance but if they last as long as my Vasque boots I feel that I will be way ahead in the long run. Plus, these are water-resistant and my Vasques were not. I will have these boots for the long haul. Great fit, great weight, very comfortable, yet flexible.

Comfortable like sneakers! These boots feel incredibly light, it's like wearing regular shoes until you realize your ankles are covered. They appear to be fairly well constructed, I have worn them around the house a lot, to break them in, but haven't taken them out yet. They seem fairly sturdy, but they are definitely not the all one piece design of the leather boots that I'm used to. We'll see how durable they are after a few hikes. My only complaint, is that for hiking boots, they look a lot more like the sneakers that they are probably based off. That excess red and black is very quote un-outdoorsy"

I waited for like 6 months for a size 8 to be available as people said to order down a half size. Finally couldn't wait any longer and bought the 8.5 and wore a thick pair of wool socks. No break in period. Not as heavy as I was thinking they would be. Overall super happy I bought them.

I got a pair of these and the Gore-Tex lining, after 3 months, started to bunch up in the toe area and felt uncomfortable. I called Zamberlan, sent them to their cobbler, who said it was a defect in the Gore-Tex lining and could not fix them. So I ordered a second pair, and when it started happening again after 3 months, I just sent them all back. Never have had that problem with any other boot.

A boot of excellent quality in both craftsmanship and material. I got this boot because I need a good 'day' hiker. There is enough shoe here for a good backbacking boot. But I was unable to find another good quality boot; (Danner's boot I am interested in is not available in my size at this time)I decided to keep this one and told my friends, "I know it is over kill, but I've got a nice hiking boot." Now I am glad I kept the boot that is more boot than I need. It is very comfortable and keeps getting more and more comfortable. With each wearing it forms a closer match with my feet.
