I switched to Vasque Hiking/Backpacking boots (from Asolo) last year. We day hike as well as high altitude ultralight backpack for several days at a stretch. Sometimes we put on 15 miles with 3k-5k elevation gains per leg of our trips. I wanted something just a bit lighter than my boots for simple...

Got these based on other reviews. They are great so far. Went trail running in Ohio in winter the day I got them and my feet stayed dry and comfortable even in snow. They are a bit bulky but not necessarily heavy but I suppose they have to be for their purpose. Overall, I am very pleased. I got them for a great price and I think they will be awesome trail shoes for winter , spring and overall wey and muddy running here in Northeast Ohio.

These shoes have been reviewed to run slightly wide in the toe box and fit if you order a half size up. They are stiff shoes so there will be some break in required especially for your foot. I would look at some reviews on page 1 and 3 of reviews to get a better idea. I hope this helps and you can enjoy being outside.c

It does have a wide toe box. but a larger heel box. I had a major problem with my heel slipping in this model. I'd say I have an average size heel. I bought the Blur and they were perfect for my wide toe box and in the heel.

According to our specs it is built on the award-winning Blur sole and last, the TPU injected textile forefoot plate and rigid TPU instep strike the perfect balance between comfort and lightweight underfoot protection. Information from Vasque's site states this about women's lasts: Every one of our womenâ€™s shoes is formed on a last adjusted to fit womenâ€™s specifically. These lasts are precision contoured differently from menâ€™s in these key ways: Narrower heel pocket, added support in the instep, heel to ball ratio adjusted (relationship between the first and fifth metatarsal heads or flex zone), and higher arches.

These shoes do have good traction for various conditions and terrains. It is softer than a hiking boot but tougher than a tennis shoe.|Another item you may consider are YakTraxs item #97358. They are easy to use.

Considering that on your trip you will be hiking in rough terrain I would suggest wearing hiking shoes or even hiking boots for the support. Wearing a shoe that does not provide your feet with enough support or protection can be a recipe for an unpleasant trip.
