A leather, GORTEX boot for under $80 (w/coupon)-can't beat that!! Stiff at first, but what boot isn't, "broke in" in a short time. Excellent ankle support, love the shank and VIBRAM sole (good grip on slippery surfaces). They might seem big, but order your size, don't go smaller.

    I've been working in some Zamberlan boots for the last 15 months and have pretty much worn the soles to shreds (not to mention the cordura material that surrounds the lower foot). While these Vasques are definitely much heavier, the feeling of having a quality leather boot with a Gore-tex membrane with a Vibram sole for the price is unbeatable. They took about 2 weeks of walking in them every day to break in to where they were totally comfortable on my feet. I have not had any blisters whatsoever but they were definitely stiff at the ankles and did some rubbing. However, they feel great now and I am very happy that I made the purchase. For anyone that is wondering, Superfeet Orange insoles work fine in these boots and help fill up some of the extra volume if needed. While the heel on the boot is rather aggressive, there is still a good feeling of stability while walking on uneven terrain. As a side note... I spilled a full cup of coffee on them about two weeks in and clean up was a breeze with some paper towels and water. No stains on the leather. These boots are fine to wear to work but classy enough to wear out as well.

    These are great boots. They are sturdy, supportive and comfortable. I am very happy with the quality of these boots, and the price was great.

    I have only had these boots for a few weeks, but I really like them. They are stiff at first. They do require a break in period as other reviewers pointed out, but they are very comfortable.

    I really wanted these boots to fit and ordered a14N. The length was right, but still way too wide. However, the boots seemed awesome…does anyone may a truly narrow hiking boot for long skinny feet?
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Steve H from Pennsylvania on Tuesday, December 09, 2014
    So I received these boots about 2 weeks ago and so far I love them. I'm normally an 11 in Vasque (I had the Breeze GTX) and I had to size down to 10.5 in these. I haven't had the chance to hike in these but I've been wearing them around in the cold rainy weather lately and they have felt great. They are a little still at first which is to be expected with leather, but I wouldn't say you would need to wear these for much more than a few weeks to break them in.

    The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is the laces are great for now but they seem like with a ton of use they might break. They do come with two sets (red and black) and I'm sure will last me for awhile, but since I have narrow feet I normally have to lace them tight on the first few laces and I'm just worried one day on the trail they'll break. They are easily replaceable though, so for this price it is an amazing steal!

    I would highly recommend these. I'll try to update after I take these to Iceland/Switzerland.

    • Answer The tread is excellent for hiking the trails and summits here in the Adirondack mountains in all conditions except ice and snow.

    • Answer Yes, they are grippy enough for mountain use. However, no boot will satisfy all mountain trail and off-trail conditions.
