Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Hiking boots I've ever owned! A few months ago I was able to take part in an in-store boot fitting. I have flat feet, and I tend to get aching arches if I don't get just the right pair of boots. I spent about 3 hours in the store that day trying on about a dozen different pairs of boots. I walked all around the store, put on weighted backpacks, the whole thing. These boots were unbelievably comfortable right off the bat. I've since done quite a bit of hiking, and they've been wonderful from the first time I put them on. They offer great traction and great stability. I use them for everything from quick short hikes to all day hikes. I highly recommend these to anyone looking for a great pair of hiking boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit This is my first time trying Vasque hiking boots and I am happy so far. I went to this brand since I have a low volume foot and my feet were swimming in other brands. I wear an 8.5 and that's what size boot I bought and they fit me perfectly. My first hike was 18 miles on the rocky Appalachian Trail in Pennsylvania and I didn't have any foot issues at all. I didn't slip on the rocks and the tread is nice and thick so that the jagged rocks didn't hurt my feet. I put another 12 miles on them today and I have no blisters or foot pain. I'm happy with these boots since they required no breaking in time. I just put them on and hiked and am happy I tried this brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Hiking Boots After years of being uncomfortable in cheap hiking shoes that I bought cheaply off of Amazon, I finally decided to invest in a decent pair. I tried on everything under $200 at the REI store and these were the best. They're very supportive, with a solid heel and toe box. Excellent traction. They broke in quickly, and are very comfortable. I also have sweaty feet, and so far they haven't gotten as clammy as in other shoes. Thanks to the good people of REI for helping me find what will hopefully be a very long-lasting hiking shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy, comfortable, and light Got these delivered at work, put them on and wore them all day on concrete. I took my dog on a 4 mike hike the next day in them. They are very comfortable and cushioned for as light weight as they are. The only thing I dont' like is the flat laces. It is very hard for me to get them hooked around the middle hooks. I have to be very diligent about making sure the lace is seated down in the hook, instead of catching on the edge. These are great for softer paths, dirt, mowed paths. If I were hiking in real rocky areas, I would change to my St Elias GTX. If you want a light hiker that protects your ankles and is tough, this is it! I am very happy with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No regrets I took these out of the box and broke these in on a 43 mile hike. I repeat: BROKE THEM IN ON A 43 MILE HIKE. Review? Not one blister. Not even one. Super breathable, true to size, super sleek and goretex. These are my new #1 Vasques. I'm in love. I have mine in a wide and customized the insoles for my flat feet which made them perfect. They're also super light to carry which is ideal for traveling backpackers like me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No break-in time needed I bought these boots the day before a 9 miles hike and from the box to my feet they felt amazing. The following week I hiked 15 miles and crossed 15 river streams and my feet were dry by the end of the hike. They are truly waterproof. Never had blisters, foot doesn't slide when going downhill. Best pair of shoes I have ever owned!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Hiking Boot I wore the same pair of these for almost 1500 miles of the Appalachian Trail! These boots lasted 3x longer than the trail runner's I usually hike in. They are very light for a hiking boot, offer great support and are overall very sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Hiking Boot! I have been hiking in these boots now for a couple of months. I was very surprised (and pleased) to find that they come in a wide size, so there's plenty of room for my wide foot. They are so comfortable, from day one, with no break-in period. And they are completely waterproof, which is important to me because there's always a lot of streams to cross in the Smokies. My only complaint is the shoe laces - they just won't stay tight. But that was easily solved with a new pair. I highly recommend these!

Questions & Answers

Do I need to spray these on the outside with a waterproof spray to protect the leather/suede? I understand they should be waterproof inside due to the gortex but am not sure if I should spray the outside or not for protection. 

Asked by: JNagle
​These boots come waterproof and you will not need to spray any additional waterproofing on for protection.

Do these have a wide toe box? I need a wide toe box like Keen's have to offer but if I order a wide in these Vasque Breeze III, does that mean the entire boot is wide? I think I just have normal-sized feet but definitely need a boot with a wide toe box.

Asked by: UrbanGypsy
The wide sizes in these boots have a wide toe box. The regular width is B and the wide width is a D. If you need more room in the toe box, we recommend ordering the wide size.

I have flat feet (zero arch whatsoever) and was wondering how the wear would be with these boots on a flat footed individual? Is it recommended that I purchase insoles for these boots?

Asked by: jnguye47
Based on feedback, these boots are comfortable for people with flat feet. If you find you need more support, we recommend adding an insole: https://www.rei.com/c/insoles

What kind of arch support and padding in the foot bed do these boots have?

Asked by: JodidB
​These boots have a thermoplastic urethane shank that provides a lot of arch and lateral support. The dual density EVA footbed gives you out of the box comfort.
