    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! These are super comfortable boots! I'm not used to wearing shoes with ankle support like this, but I've had no trouble adjusting. The toe box is roomy without my feet swimming around. I like the all-leather design. I have even used this boot in the snow, and my feet stayed nice and dry (they did get a bit cold after a while though!)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from serious hiking boots I'd completely worn out a previous pair of Vasque hiking shoes, specifically the original Mantra style, and was very distressed to find that the "new and improved" Mantra 2.0 hiking shoes do not work for me (the tongue hits my ankles in such a way that I can't walk in them) and I was at my wit's end for several weeks, feeling I'd never find a decent pair of hiking shoes. (I tried on many different pairs, made by several different athletic / outdoor activity shoe manufacturers, believe me.) I bought a pair of Vasque Talus hiking boots in the same size that my old, worn-out Mantras had been (i.e. 9.5), but I found that my new Talus hiking boots were impossible for me to walk in, so I regretfully returned them. A few weeks later, in desperation, I tried the Talus boots again, but in different sizes, and it seemed that maybe, just maybe, I could wear the size 9 Talus boots. I bought them, and to my great relief, I have found that I can wear them comfortably. They feel snug but in a cozy way, not uncomfortably so. I still wish that Vasque still made the Mantra hiking shoes in their original incarnation, but since they don't, these Talus boots are a good substitute for them. One thing I especially appreciate about the Vasque Talus hiking boots is that they offer good ankle support without being quite as high as Vasque's other hiking boots. For me, this makes a huge difference in comfort and walkability. These boots allow me to move my ankles a fair amount with every step. This is what ankles are supposed to do! I've worn these new hiking boots on several hikes of varying lengths, (three to seven hours) and they're becoming more and more comfortable as I break them in. I look forward to enjoying countless long hikes in them. I always wear liner socks (wool, silk, cotton, or synthetic material, all are fine as long as they're not too tight) under REI wool light-hiking socks when I wear hiking shoes or boots. My feet feel well-protected, well-cared for, and snug. Wearing liner socks under the wool socks makes a big difference in comfort.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots! I tried several pairs in the store and felt that these were the best in terms of traction and support. I have hiked in them a few times now and absolutely love them. Snow, mud, rocks, loose dirt, great for all of these. No break-in time, instantly comfortable. I was tempted by some more sexy looking pairs, but you just can't beat the level of comfort and functionality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My favorite pair of shoes! These quickly became my favorite pair of shoes. I used to dance and I have very weak Ankles so rolling them on the trail used to be a common occurrence. These boots have amazing ankle support without being too bulky or heavy. Not to mention they are perfectly waterproof. In snow, rain, and even shallow streams they kept my feet dry. It took a little breaking in before a pressure point was released on the top of my foot but after wearing them hiking around niagara falls for a weekend I haven't noticed that problem again. I will admit that I have not taken them on a backpacking trip yet however I am headed to denali soon and will let you know how they handle the wear and tear of a more rugged terrain.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Shoe! These are great hiking shoes for an afternoon jaunt or a backpacking trip. They are more lightweight than your average backpacking shoe (which I love, but it is not right for everyone) and have not given me a blister yet. I have been through mud and puddles and my feet have stayed dry. Overall, a great hiking shoe.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoe I have small narrow feet and these fit great. Comfortable right out of the box and getting more so as I wear them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant comfort for the whole day had injured feet, needed good support and room for inserts, plus comfort for toes. THESE BOOTS ARE GREAT!
    Date published: 2014-03-26
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good enough Generally good and comfy. I wore them on two all day moderate hikes so far without any blisters or problems. I added insoles as there wasn't much cushion. And there is one pain point around the top front ankle area caused by the tongue where it is supposed to lay under the ankle hooks (too much bulk on the tongue or the edge isn't engineered to fit well???) so I couldn't lace the ankles tight - which means I don't get the full benefit of ankle support.
