Sort of a loose, big fit with this boot. Not much in the way of arch support. Good rubber traction on outsole. Thick sole with medium-stiff flex.

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.

I absolutely love these hikers! I've had them about six months and was concerned due to a previous review that stated that they bend funny while walking; however, I hiked several days and uncountable miles over my trip to Acadia. They're formed great and kept my feet feeling even better. Best part is the two box which is sturdy yet comfy. Sole is great for steep climbs. Love this shoe.

Best pair of boots I have ever own. I work on my feet all day on hard surfaces and hike everyday..Recently hiked Mt. Marcy in the ADK..18 miles of roots rocks and more rocks...no aches at all. This is my second pair and my first pair are 3 years old a little worn but still comfortable. Will continue to purchase these boots as long as they are continued to made in Italy. No OUT sourcing...just purchased another pair for our son!

Fantastic boot! It felt great the moment I put it on and were awesome all day long. I wore them in by wearing them to 4 days of conferences on my feet all day on a cement floor. Everyone around me had blisters and or very sore feet but I came out like a champ. It took very little adjusting to the laces to get them to fit perfectly to my feet. I have pretty narrow feet and these felt just right for them. I look forward to wearing these boots for a very long time.

So far so good! OK for 10+ years I was dedicated and faithful to that other Italian brand 'A' boot.. After loosing a toe nail constantly on each of 4 trips, I decided to switch up and give brand Z a whirl. Wow - super comfortable so far on weekend outings. The big test coming up on an 8 night trip but so far, I have confidence that these will more than make the grade. Good arch support even before I pulled the in-sole's out and place my orthodics in, a nice toe box and not to mention the little stylish Italian flag make these boots a good choice so far. Too early to tell if they will keep me dry hopefully I won't have to find out too soon - But with GorTex I'm sure they'll be just fine.

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.

I have worn a large variety of boots in many different conditions. These boots are by far my go to every time. Some people complain about the leather scratching too easily or scuffing. If you wanted a nice leather loafer then you should have bought one. I have jammed these boots in between granite boulders to stabilize my self and stood in below ankle water for nearly an hour. These boots don't fail. I have at least 150 miles on them and the soles are only just starting to show significant wear. When it comes to a hiking/ light backpacking boot, I will always buy these boots.

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.

I have Zamberlan Vioz GT hiking boots that are excellent for backpacking, so I decided to try these for day hikes and camping. The fit was not on par with my other pair of Zamberlans, and neither was the comfort. My boots are Italian made. These are made in China. These shoes had one of the hardest soles I've ever put on my feet. Absolutely no cushion whatsoever. It literally felt like I was standing on concrete. I didn't even bother to try them hiking.

Purchased this pair of Zamberlan Vioz GT's after being disappointed with a pair of Danner Mountain Light II's. Right out of the box, the Zamberlan's fit much better than the Mountain Lights (same size) and offered much better internal support. I have put about 50 miles on both sets of boots and the Zamberlans are much more comfortable simply walking the streets or hiking the trails. I am not affiliated with any shoe manufacturer or any retailer and always try to buy American products. I would rate the Danners with three stars and the Zamberlans with five. Since the price for both pairs of boots was similar, I challenge the Danner folks to improve their product in comfort and support. I have to give them the edge in natural brown appearance versus the European black, grey and red design. I don't understand why so many shoe and boot manufacturers are making products that look like a bowl of Froot Loops. I am keeping the Zamberlans and thinking about returning the Danners. Zappos rocks with their customer satisfaction and shipping items in size appropriate boxes. Amazon should take a lesson in that arena. Okay, I have trashed enough companies with truthful comments. I would strongly recommend anyone considering several of the other fine hiking boot manufacturers (they all make an excellent product) to buy the Zamberlans. It kills me not to buy and recommend the Made in America product, but comfort and fit always rules the day with my shoe and boot choices. I wear a 10.5 size, D width and the Euro 45 also labeled 10H fit like a glove. Thanks for reading this novel and enjoy the ride, hike or camp-out.

I am a zookeeper. That means lots of water. Hosing is a big part of my job, and I wanted a shoe that was waterproof. The Zamberlan is not waterproof. It is not like I am walking through puddles, it is just some hose spray and my socks are wet. Also, after just a couple of weeks, the laces are starting to break. Save your money, this one is not worth it.

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.

Best boot I ever owned. 3 years old now. Looks new. Amazing comfort. Just replaced the laces. This boot is top notch. Yes expensive. But well worth every cent. The quality and attention to detail is obvious. No china crap here. Italian workmanship. I can say enough about comfortable this boot is.

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.

These boots fit great and provide exceptional support. I never get blisters but these boots felt great out of the box. It took about two weeks, 90+ hrs, to get these boots fitting like they made for my feet. The rubber was a little hard at first but after a couple weeks I was getting a little better traction on rocks and tree limbs. I am a climbing arborist and work in a very abrasive world with trees, saws, rocks, pavement, gas and oil. The boots are holding up great.

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

I have had my previous Vasque hikers for 32 years! They did require breaking in but they maintained their comfort and longevity whether I was working in them or walking a festival all day or hiking my favorite trails. All that being said these Zamberlan boots were comfortable right out of the box. TRULY! The construction is very meticulous. All seams are finished,smooth and sealed. The metal lace-ups are strong and allow me to tighten the laces for a snug fit on my feet. I wear wool hiking socks with my boots. I have worn thin wool knee socks as well and they still remain comfortable. They also allow me to put in some "hot toes" packs if I need them. I went on a 7 mile hike up the mountain the next day! Remarkable no "break in" required. The terrain was rocky and uphill. Not a sore spot or hot spot on my feet. Wow these boots are really worth the price and they are waterproof to boot! I have been looking for a long time to replace my vasques' but it has been a long journey and many disappointments and returns. My feet are narrow with a narrow heel. I don't have to worry about where i'm going to hike or what shoes to wear anymore. These boots have it all covered!

I bought this boot from Mountain Equipment Coop in British Columbia, Canada over 5 years ago. It was the most expensive boot they had but I needed a boot that was ready for the West Coast Trail the very next day. This boot performed amazingly with no break-in time at all. I'm a 10 wide and it fits like a glove. I continue to wear this boot every winter for 4-5 months steady. I had a small separation between sole and leather on the front left last year which I used a strong silicone shoe repair glue to fix. Still going strong, still fits better than any boot I've ever had. I could take this on the West Coast Trail right now and not worry about blisters or wet feet (as long as I had some Gators)! I expect I will get a 6th winter out of this boot before I replace it with...yes, you guessed it, the same model. Absolutely top notch craftsmanship!
