Vasque came out with a winner with this one. I agree these are a bit tight and if you want a roomy daily driver or a hiking shoe get a half size larger. Approach shoes by nature are tight and snug, hence the lacing to the toe area to snug it up even more. For those that don't know, an approach shoe ... Read More

    Got these because of the Vibram outsole. Really stuck to the granite in Joshua Tree national park. Worked like a charm. Good support, true to size, and best of all great price! Only complaint is a little more ankle support.

    I read the reviews before buying and, as suggested, went up half a size. Out of the box the shoe felt a little snug. However after wearing them for a couple of days they packed out a little and fit perfectly. I just returned from a hike in the White Mountains in NH and put the shoes to the test. They performed extremely well. Traction was great on exposed, wet rock faces. No toe jam on the decent. They did get wet - but that was my fault. The snow coverage at the higher elevation was pretty extensive. And the conditions were wet - mud season. I should have worn a higher boot. Overall I'm very pleased with the shoe. Headed to Moab this summer. The Vasques will be along for the trip.

    Vasque came out with a winner with this one. I agree these are a bit tight and if you want a roomy daily driver or a hiking shoe get a half size larger. Approach shoes by nature are tight and snug, hence the lacing to the toe area to snug it up even more. For those that don't know, an approach shoe is designed for climbers to take them to the crag. Some approaches are long and up steep rock where a tight fitting shoe with a sticky sole is required. Many using approach shoes don't wear socks.

    Back to this shoe. The sole is perfect and was the main reason I bought the shoe. Idrogrip will stick to nearly anything, wet or dry. The soles are worth twice what I paid for the shoes. I went on a long hike in the desert recently with these and had to do some free solo rock climbing. These shoes preformed beyond expectation, and I expected a lot. I did get a hot spot on my little toe because of the tightness at about 3 hours in. I duct taped it and all was good. For a shoe of this type the arch support is good, you can make it better with Super feet or the like.

    I knew I'd like these and bought 2 pair. I'd buy another if they were sill available in my size. It's really hard to find a shoe like this where the manufacturer got it right in every area. Comfortable enough to wear every day. Unique and funky look will garner complements.

    These have not been on the trail yet...just breaking them in around the office. And they NEED breaking in...like any good leather hiking boot. True to color and size, they are exactly what I was expecting!
