Yup. I had seen this bonus mentioned in an online blog review of these boots. They do indeed come with a second set of laces which are the same two tone grey color as the webbing lace loops. These look much better than the dark navy blue laces. But I do appreciate having two sets, as it's good to ha... Read More

    Rubber started coming apart a few weeks after purchase and were rendered water permeable within a few months. no point in getting Gortex if not constructed properly...

    My first Vasque boot and I am impressed with the quality of construction and the durable design. This boot is quality made from the Vibram sole to the Gore-Tex waterproof lining. I have hiked several intense (wet & rocky) trails in these boots and they delivered great performance. I did order a half size bigger and they do have a slightly narrower foot box than my Keens. I plan to wear these boots for my more challenging hikes and my Keens for easy to moderate hikes.

    While tight to put on (a shoe horn helps immensely), the boots are very comfortable. There is plenty of room throughout no pinching during steps. I would like to see a little more cushioning in the sole and a different lacing system as the hooks do not hold the lace while tying and they are close to each other, making it easy to miss/skip if not looking.

    I got these as my main backpacking boots. These were indeed pretty light and the wide did provide enough room. Compared to the same size in asolo, they were both wider and longer. It fit better for me for the same size.

    Took them on 2 specific backpacking trips. A 4 day trip in hawaii and a 11 day trip in Alps. About half way though my trip in the alps, the rubber started to come apart on the top from the boot negating the waterproofing qualities, which was the main point of using boots over trail runners for me. Seemed like it was poorly put together. I might try to use gorilla glue to put that back together.

    I would say this is more a light use boots.

  • “I measure mens 8.5 d and in a running shoe I wear a size 9 which gives me a thumbs width of toe room. Should I do the same with these boots?.”
    Asked by Jimbo from NY on 4/10/2014 2:24:29 PM
    • Might be a good idea to go with the 9. If it's too roomy you can always wear heavier socks. I've had these boots over a year and wear them just about everyday and love them.

    • If you want to save your toe nails you will need about a thumbs width of toe room. In addition hiking boots provide support all the way up and past your ankle. You really should try boots on and hang out in them for a good bit to identify if the last of the boot fits your feet. Trouble spots are your heal and where the boot flexes around your ankle. On long trips, if the boot doesn't fit properly, you will develope hot spots and then blisters. Walking up and down stairs or an incline helps identify how well the boot fits, if you feel significant hot spots or movement of your foot in the boot you should size up or down or try a different manufacturer. Vasque fits my foot exceptionally well (I have long and low volume feet), but everyone has different foot volumes and sizes. Hopefully, Vasque fits your feet and you can have many years on the trail with them.

    • My foot measures 10" long, heel to toe, and I wear a wide ... I ordered 10.5 W and they fit just right with 1 pair of medium to heavyweight socks. I loosen the lowest sets of laces to allow for my foot width at the ball and they fit fine. Hope this helps.

    • I really don't know exactly how to answer this but my experience with the two Vasque boots I have had is that a 1/2 size larger than I wear in an athletic shoe fits me fine these boots.

    • These boots run true to size lengthwise. In width, they are slightly tighter than the average boot. Like most people, I too wear a 1/2 size larger in running shoes to compensate for the swelling. In these boots I wear a medium thickness hiking sock without a problem. So unless your feet swell more than most people, recommend buying your regular size.

    • Yes. I recommend you get the same size boots as you wear running shoes, especially nike shoes. The last thing you want in your boots is to not have enough room in the toe box.

    • I'd get the 9. You should want room for heavy socks yes?
      Answered on 4/10/2014 2:44:45 PM by lambsev from Maryland
    • Since each manufacture sizes the fit of shoes to different molds, you really cannot base a fit solely off other shoes, you have to know if a manufacture is true to size. Another big difference from a running shoe versus a hiking boot is the type of sook you will wear, you generally need a thicker hiking sock for hiking. I have found Vasque to be true to the advertised size and in your case going with a 9 should allow enough toe room. Sierra Trading post has been great to me and swaps out anything that doesn't fit, but if you need it right away the best course would be find a retailer that has Vasque boots and size them at the store and then purchase from ST. You may not find the same model of hiking boot at the store but as long as it is a comprable modle from Vasque the fits should be similar.

    • This boot is waterproof, but it is not insulated, so it is not designed to keep you warm in colder temperatures.

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.
