Perfect approach shoe
Reviewed by Nick in the Wasatch Mountains from Utah on Friday, April 25, 2014
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

    These are really cool looking shoes! I wear these shoes with jeans or with cargo pants and they look great. They fit true to size, I wear a size 8.5. I don't wear them to hike I live in a city, although they a very sturdy feeling and rugged. I wear them for the look! I would recommend these shoes to anyone.
  • Very good shoe, great bargain

    I've only used this shoe for a couple of short hikes and scrambles, but it fits and works well. The price, with STP discount, was significantly less than other similar approach shoes. Really looking forward to giving these a good workout this spring and summer.
  • well made and eventually comfortable

    As others have noted, these run a bit small for the size, so I ordered half a size larger than usual. Still, they were a tight fit until I loosened the laces all the way down (eight holes per side). Plan on some break-in time, for me it took ten miles or so with adjustments. Sole is thin, you can feel the ground and rocks more than in other shoes, which is what you want in an approach shoe. Good support in heel and toe, feels like a real shoe more than a moccasin-feel of cheaper shoes.

    sorry....but i and my daughter and my friend tried on these shoes in the correct sizes and could not get them to have a good fit.....i always get vasque trail shoes and i love the way they fit but these were too long and narrow and stiff and just did not fit right....
    we were drawn to the cute color and style and the fact that they were vasque....but the fit was awkward so three of us had to say no to the shoes....drats...

About Vasque

For more than fifty years, Vasque boots have been helping hikers, backpackers, mountaineers and trail runners get off the beaten path and out into the wilderness. When company founder William D. Sweasy traveled to Europe in the 1960s and saw how recreational hiking was sweeping the continent, he knew it wouldn’t be long before the craze reached American soil. In the years since Sweasy created the Vasque footwear company, Vasque hiking boots and mountaineering boots have become synonymous with outdoor exploration. Whether your destination is a local trail or a craggy alpine summit, Vasque shoes and boots provide the support, all-terrain traction and top-quality construction that lasts for many miles of adventure.
