    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Boot!! I bought these boots about six months ago in preparation for a backpacking trip on Yosemite's North Rim Trail. For the first week or so the boots stayed in the box because I had no use for them (my bp trip wasn't for another five months). One day I had accidentally left my work shoes at home and the only thing I had to wear to work were these Vasque's. Me being a waiter, I knew that waiting tables in a hiking boot was a BAD idea. After that one night of waiting tables in the boots I was sold. These boots are the 2nd most comfortable shoes I have ever put on my feet (next to Asic's). I wore them every night waiting tables for five months and my feet never hurt once. The real test of these boots was my four day backpacking adventure on Yosemite's North Rim. The boots held up excellently. they weren't waterproof but they did wick out the moisture in a mater of minutes. the boots had Excellent grip keeping me caught up with the rest of the group while bouldering even though they had climbing shoes and i used these. During the trip i lost my footing SEVERAL times on the descent (caused by bad foot placement not the boots) and these Vasque's kept me from hurting myself badly with a rolled ankle. And on a last note cosmetically, the boots look Fantastic to date. Minus the Impressions of the laces on the tongue, they'd pass for a brand new boot. All in All these Vasque's are excellent and would highly recommend them

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Survived a Season in Glacier, Great boot I've worked at Glacier National Park on a study on trail use, which means a lot of hiking and backpacking on weekends. I wanted a shoe that was light enough for day hiking for work, but sturdy enough for long distance backpacking adventures, and not too expensive. I was pleasantly surprised with these Vasques. They were waterproof, light enough for my daily work, but durable enough for 2 night backpacking trips into Glacier's backcountry. They also breathe very well, which was a must for me. When paired with the right pair of wool socks, they were the best boots I've worn since I've been out here. The best part is they survived an entire summer of daily use in Glacier and will be usable for next summer's study. Glacier's rocks and trails are notoriously rough on footwear, but these held up well. Since my job was hiking, I also wanted a shoe that would allow me to move pretty quick when I had to. These boots rolled very easily with my stride and were light enough that I never really had problems picking up the pace if I had to. The downside was it pinched a little on my pinky toes and if I wasn't wearing the right socks would sometimes rub on long distance backpacking trips on the outside of my heel. I also noted that on the outside edges they tended to separate a little bit, but actually held up and never got worse. They were waterproof, a must in many backcountry adventures, comfortable, and held up to daily use for 3 consecutive months. A good buy for the price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good at first At first, these boots were great. No break-in time and my feet stayed dry while working on Isle Royale. Only recently, after owning for less than a year, have the soles begun to tear off and the waterproofing has faded dramatically.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe I read a lot of these reviews earlier this year before I ended up buying these boots to take with me from San Diego to Spain when I hiked the Camino de Santiago. I didn't know much about how a boot was supposed to feel so I probably read way more than was necessary and after trying on about 4 pairs I ended up with these ones. After walking about 300 miles in them (with 200 to go on on my trip) I was the only person I knew that hadn't gotten any blisters. I guess I was just super lucky but I was so happy with these shoes that I bought another pair when I got home and the first ones haven't worn all the way out yet. I don't have a ton of experience with "Goretex" but I can tell you these shoes are not 100% waterproof as my feet did get wet one day but it was raining all day and I walked for 6+hrs in the rain. They dried quickly with some newspaper stuffed in them overnight. Long story short, love these boots, they are a great them. (I also have the wide style which I found is more comfortable for me).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Barely Scratched in Maine The Vasque Breeze GTX boots were a godsend in Maine. After 243 miles of the AT SOBO in Maine the boots are barely starting to show wear. With SmartWool socks, I only had two blisters, both in the 100 mile wilderness, after three straight days of fording and wet feet. I sprained my ankle and was able to keep going for a while, stupidly and sometimes very slowly, due to the support they provided (estimated about 80 miles before sprain was intolerable). The only issue was traction on damp rock. I fell on my rear about five times from the slate before Monson.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100-mile review (more or less. . .) About 100 miles in, these boots are the best I've owned. Used mostly for day hiking but also backpacking, including a 20-mile overnight almost literally out of the box (wore around the house the night before). No visible signs of wear and the waterproofing is holding up well -- includes muddy trails and stream crossings, although I haven't tried all-day rain (as another reviewer did). Breathability is fine. Fit is great - they stay in place up top with enough room for my somewhat-wide foot below, including with a variety of socks. . .I usually hike with a liner sock and thicker outer sock, but will also throw on thin athletic socks to walk in the snow close to home. I like the mid-height; it's enough ankle support for backpacking without getting too heavy. As always with boots, no substitute for trying out in person, including different sizes and styles. . .

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Boots These boots are awesome. I wear them almost everyday, they are great in any weather condition, rain, snow, whatever, my feet are always dry and warm. Not the usual break in period either, never had any blisters, or hot spots even on long hikes just days after buying them. We have both the Men's and Women's models.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fit and very comfortable I tried on multiple pairs of shoes at the local REI. My one thing that was hard to find was one which would fit without a hot spot on top of my foot near the tongue of the boot. Most boots have their tongue connected tot he boot with a large flap on either side almost all the way to the top of the tongue, this would fold over itself when the laces were tightened and push into the top of my foot/ankle. These boots did not have that issue, for me these boots are very light and a great fit, i prefer more feel and a less stiff boot and these fit the bill. There is still enough support so that i can hike 6 miles with a 35~40lb pack of climbing gear and have zero issues with ankle or foot support. I have yet to take these on a multi day hike as i am not a winter camper....yet :-)
