    Vasque Talus WP Hiking Boots - Men's is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot This was my first real pair of hiking boots. The staff at REI helped me narrow it to this and the Vasque Breeze 2.0 GTX. The Talus felt sturdier than the Breeze, and other brand boots, which to me made the Talus more like a boot and the others more like a shoe. I must admit the style sold me as well. Prior to breaking in these were already comfortable boots. Once broken in, I used them for a week in Yosemite, doing about 30 miles of day hikes. They had great traction on the rockier parts of trails, and while I didn't go splashing around, my feet were dry on the few creek and stream crossings we encountered. I wouldn't say my feet necessarily feel cool in these boots, but they do not feel hot either. That's when wearing them with some medium cushion REI wool hiking socks. Even on my longest day my feet were still dry and comfortable, and no odor issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome boot I've always had challenges finding a great pair of hiking boots. Size 14... narrow heel/wide forefoot (bunyons)... long toes. While I had found boots which were close, I've never quite found any that were just right. When it was time for a new pair of hiking boots, I tried on many different models. After exhaustive research and after talking the ear off of every REI sales associate I could find, I finally settled on these. After a number of day trips and overnight backpacks, I can say that I am thoroughly happy with them. Excellent traction, a nice roomy toebox, good waterproofing, and all day comfort make for a great day on the trail. And after six months, they still look brand new. And as a bonus, the price is better than many of the other models I tried.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome so far Went into my local REI store looking for a pair of water proof hiking boots. After trying on a couple different brands, none of which fit quite right, the salesperson suggested the Vasque Talus. From the get go they felt great. Wore them around the store for about 30 minutes and decided to give these a try. After eight day hikes and about 60 miles they fit like a glove. The Vasque Perpetuum last does a great job at locking my foot securely in place minimizing any foot movement, i.e., no blisters. They seem to be pretty durable, hardly any tread wear so far, but a little too early to say for sure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like these boots I often have trouble buying shoes because of narrow (8b) feet. The REI shoe salesman showed me a selection of boots that run a little narrower than most. (they do not have width selection on any of their boots). These fit best then and continue to feel great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Hiking Shoe Have been out on a few hikes with these guys and they fit and feel great, would recommend also using a good hiking sock like the REI brand, makes them feel even better. Had no issues with slipping or rubbing around the ankles and have very good traction. Well worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Shoes! I bought these to wear during a ten week photo excursion from Oregon to Florida this summer. I honestly can't find a single negative thing to say about these. They are the perfect boot for me in every way, and I have no doubt they're going to do the "Vasque" name proud!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Set Of Boots! I use these boots for back country multi days trips and they are great, good traction, dry out at a great rate, comfortable and good support. The only issues is break in time, they are a little stiff out of the box but, the more dirt you cover these guys in the better they get! I would highly recommend these to someone look for a next mid level boots who adventures often. Just make sure they are right for you!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Man I love these shoes. I tried out two Merrells, and they were just awful. There was either no support, or they actually made my knees feel awful. I then went back to Vasque, the brand I've been using for years. So good to be home. I walk about an hour every other day, so I need shoes which are actually made for walking. These fit the bill perfectly. I strayed from brand loyalty because the looks weren't very innovative, but now I have things in perspective, and I'm actually happy with the looks of these boots now! I'm so glad Vasque is reliable.
