Closeouts. From wooded trails to dry dirt roads, Vasque Jule hiking shoes offer the performance of a trail shoe with the comfort of a sneaker. It has a tough nubuck upper, cushioned collar and slip-resistant rubber outsole.

Got these to replace some Keen hiking shoes that I have worn ragged. Unfortunately, on trying these on I discovered that they don't have much padding, or support, and have an elongated toe box that looks strange. They also were difficult to lace up very tightly - could use an additional eyelet for the lace to give more support around the ankle. I was pleased with Sierra Trading Post's return policy, though. Very slick. Just wish these shoes were a better fit. I ended up getting some Keen's, as I know they fit well and are comfortable.

Since I first started hiking with my husband, then boyfriend, 20+ yrs. ago Vasque boots have always been on my feet. I've tried other brands but always come back to Vasque. I have a narrow foot (and nobody makes a comfortable narrow hiking boot) and with a thick sock the Vasque fits well and true to size.
I bought these shoes to wear on less rigorous trail walks and have to say they live up to the Vasque reputation I've come to expect.
But, don't judge them the first day you wear them. They can be a bit stiff at first but will feel better with the 2nd and 3rd wearing.

I ordered a 9.5 M and the width is very true, the length a little longer than expected, but nothing that cannot be handled with a thicker pair of socks. The shoes are very comfortable and I have tried them out on all kinds of trails as well as city streets or asphalted trails. Very happy with the purchase. This is the 2nd shoe or boot purchase from Sierra Trading Post and I still wear my well fitting hiking boots I bought years ago.

I went on an 8 mile walk the first time I put on these shoes. I am a 9.5 AA with a very high arch and they fit true to size with good arch support. I have not gone hiking with them but expect they will be fine, and if not they are lightweight and great supportive walking shoes.

I got these shoes after a few months of not being able to walk much from a variety of foot issues. I have a narrow foot with a high arch and these shoes are wonderful. They are comfortable for me with a mid weight Smartwool sock. After my first two mile walk, I come home and ordered a second pair. That being said, I think they look a little odd. The black toe piece is wider and shorter on the inside edge of the shoe and makes the toe look narrow. I don't care because I just want to be able to walk. I have not tried them on a trail yet - too much snow.

I was very hesitant to buy a new pair of hiking shoes. I love the pair I've had for the past 6 years, but it was time to retire them since there is almost no tread left on the bottom. I was looking to get a newer version of that brand, but couldn't find something similar to my original ones. I ordered these, partly because the price was awesome, but I also have a pair of Vasque hiking boots that I love. Well, I can now add these hiking shoes to a "love" list. They are very comfortable and I love the reinforced toe. Definitely a keeper.

I thought I would have to break in the hiking shoes but no! First time out they were very comfortable and true to size. I like the Vasque brand as I have an ankle pair of hiking boots for years now. Bought the shoes for warmer weather. Really like them.

Size was correct. Good quality..good foot and arch support. Its winter in MN but had to try them out in our skyway system and they felt great. Good traction going from vehical to skywalk in ice and snow.
