    Run a little small, so if you like extra room get a half size up.

    These were the first of a dozen tried running shoes that allowed enough room for me to use my orthotic incerts. Choas was the worst because they were all just a hard shell of a shoe with a fancey dr. scholls inside like so many of these tiype of shoe today. The vasque are a real shoe with room for your own insert. Light wieght but good arch support. Will save these for height of summer use. True to size which always makes fitting easier.

    I was disappointed with the fit of this shoe, even after reading reviews about it. I should have ordered a half size up. I need to use inserts because I have high arches. I can't fit an insert into these shoes. I will keep them and hope they stretch a bit so I can wear them . I will not be walking my dog 5 miles a day in them!

    I am so happy with these shoes that these are the second pair I have bought.
    Very stable - lots of support and very comfortable. I have tried them on the street and on trails. Work well everywhere.

    As soon as I put them on I knew they were the shoes for me. There was room for my high instep even after I put in my own insoles.
    I went for a run in the hills and found them very comfortable and extremely stable.

    The wife says they are comfy and feel light. I liked the price.

    I like the fact that it doesn't have the insole. It makes for a seamless fit. I've had trouble before with the side seam of the insole irritateing the ball of my foot. This solved that problem.

    I was worried about buying these shoes after reading the negative comments. Yes, initially they felt a little stiff and weird and the tops would hit my ankle. After a week of wearing them, they feel wonderful. These Vasque running shoes make it much easier to balance on uneven terrain. I also wear them at the gym and generally keep them on my feet all day long. Love them, especially the price. Will buy another pair.
  • Reviewed by a fan of Vasque from California on Tuesday, November 25, 2014
    I have had 3 pairs of Vasque trail running shoes before this and absolutely loved them. This pair was a total disappointment however. I ordered this pair in the same exact size as my other Vasque trail running shoes, but they were way too small. The front stitching actually pressed onto my toes even when I wasn't walking or running. There were also no insoles. You could feel the stitching in the shoe. Those of us who wear prescription orthodics count on every shoe to have a removable insole that could be replaced by the orthodics. There was nothing to remove in this case. Also this shoe is not neutral, so buying a bigger size and then adding the prescription orthodics is not an option.

    I bought these because I own another pair of Vasque shoes, which I love. I wasn't disappointed. They're very, very comfortable for walking (I don't run trails). I did have to buy orthotics because the sides hit my ankles when I first tried them on. With orthotics, they feel great. No problems at all. They feel light and springy. I would have preferred another pair of my first Vasque shoes, the ones with the knob, but these were on sale. I miss the convenience of the knob (vs tying shoelaces), but I'm very happy with the fit and feel of the shoe.

    I thought, $45? Yea, right. What a great shoe. Love the support as I have a very high arch. Very comfortable and a great snug fit without being too tight. These will take me places!

    I liked these shoes. They are comfortable and I felt supported. My toes were right to the end of the shoe and it caused problems on a pretty level hike. Get a 1/2 size larger if you can.

    My son wears a size six which is often difficult to find: too large for boy's, too small for men's. I decided to find a women's 7.5 that wasn't too girly looking and found these in grey and yellow. I threw away the evidence that they are for women and he really likes them.

    These are great. I love Vasque hikers and trail runners. These are light, fit well, and are working just fine out of the box. I ordered a half-size smaller than I usually do because of a comment I read here, and they are fitting just right. I also use orthotics which I put into these shoes, and there is plenty of room for them. Working well. The insole is not typical - kind of flat and not removable. I can only think that these are designed for people like me who want to use their own insole.

    Very breathable, short break-in period, and very comfortable. No complaints. Runs true to size per Vasque sizing. I would recommend this shoe for light hiking, walking, and trail running.

    The insoles are sewn in...not sure if this was for a specific purpose but when I trail run I get my shoes's nice to dry them a little faster by pulling the insoles out. Not to mention there is a double stitch right at the spot my pinky toe hits. Very uncomfortable. Returning.

    I bought these shoes mainly for work at a hospital, on my feet all day. I also have worn them casually walking and playing disc golf. The have shown much wear. They are more comfortable after breaking in, but lacked cushioning and were uncomfortable in the beginning. The outsides have many places where there are undeserved scratches and ripped seams. I really was expecting much better from such a proven brand!

    This is a high quality trail running or walking shoe. They could have included the insole for the asking price and considering they're made overseas.

    This pair I received was somewhat defective. The right shoe was narrow at the tip, squeezing the big toe. This was unusual because I already own and love a pair of these shoes. There was no adjustment on the shipping, despite that this pair was defective.

    I alternate wearing this pair of Vasque shoes with another pair of Vasque shoes every day to walk/run with my dog in the park which has different surfaces and heights. Ran a half size small so I quickly exchanged them for the next size (thanks Sierra!) and they are perfect with my orthotics and light and sturdy. Exactly what I was looking for.

    I ordered 2 pairs and exchanged one to replace the size 7 I ordered in case they ran small. None of the pairs came wtih insoles, which surprised me considering they are running shoe. But perhaps this is a Vasque thing. This is my 1st time purchasing this shoe brand. So far so good, after I purchased some insoles at the local pharmacy. they are confortable and light weight. Looking forward to running on the trail soon, it's been rainy and in the 100's. Neither my pup or I like to run in extreme heat.

    I never tried Vasque before and found out that this brand is very straight from toe to heel and not kidney shaped like most shoes. The straight shape is better for me but it was a little narrow for my neuroma which was not the fault of the shoe.
    Also, this shoe wasn't very cushy even with my orthotic. Not a keeper.
