Rated 2 out of 5 by from comfortable, grippy, hot, fail.... Purchased these from another vendor as REI did not have them available at the beginning of last summer16'. Took to Isle Royal with 45 lb pack and 70 miles. They felt good and light on the feet, really not much of a break-in period needed but I did where them a few times just to get used to them before the trip. Mud did not stick to the sho at all!! Grip was decent on slippery spots but Solomon Gtx mid is a better sole for grip. These shoes wore poorly though and the sole came off the front of the shoe and the heel of the shoe failed. I was told the boot was defective as this was not normal. The shoes were quite warm given the material made from and kept more moisture than you would expect from a shoe like this. I really wanted to like these shoes......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these, so far I have had these boots a little over 2 weeks now. I have been wearing them at work and recently took a 6 mile hike on the PCT near Ebbetts Pass. They are very light which I LOVE compared to my older heavier Vasque boots and they seem very strong for as light as they are so far. Looking forward to another great pair of Vasque boots, sure they will not disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Light Hiker I wore this boot on a recent photography assignment in South Korea - where I was sent to cover the recent national infatuation with hiking. We went wide open from the moment we landed - hiking over rugged terrain with heavy, mulit-day packs, staying in mountain refuges. The boots were brand new, straight outta-the-box, and they fit perfectly. No blisters, and performed well on the uneven terrain. My feet stayed cool, despite near tropical temperatures, and dry. I'm a big fan of Vasque boots -- and this pair is no exception

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Plastic hooks break I bought these from REI and will be returning them. After 1 week a plastic hook broke with light walking use around the city.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great boots for light activity The fit on these are a bit odd. I have wide flat feet and normally wear 8.5 wide. I ordered these in 9. They are definitely wide at the heels and mid section but narrows quickly towards the toes leaving a pinch point at my pinky toes (after 10 hrs of use, this breaks in and is gone). The length is a bit short and fits more like an 8.5. Arch support is flat. After 2 weeks of use, my flat arches were aching after couple hours but a new insole can resolve that. Overall, I rate this shoe high because all of it's other features are superb. Great wet traction. Soft/flexible outsole but still supportive enough for someone with ankle issues like me. If you want a snug, secure, glove like fit for more aggressive activities, these are not it.

Do these boots tend to be for a narrower or wider foot.

Asked by: Old Goat 54
The Inhaler II Mid GTX Hiking Boots runs fairly true to size but slightly on the narrower side.

I received the boots. Thanks. They seem to run narrow. Should hiking shoes feel snug?

Asked by: bmuth
These boots should not fit as snug as you might expect from a road-running shoe, however, at first it will feel snug because there will be a break-in period. For this boot, most people ordered a half size larger for the best fit.
