Rated 5 out of 5 by from Survived a 12-mile hike on the first use-- LOVE I bought these boots 2 days before I went on a huge 12-mile hike and was a little nervous about these because I did not even attempt to break them in. I didn't get any hot spots and my feet were in perfect shape after the hike! I felt like they gave me great ankle protection without there being too much support. There were a couple times where I definitely would have rolled my ankle had I been wearing a shorter boot. They felt heavy duty but also were not too heavy. I am glad that I didn't go with a straight GTX boot like I had originally planned to. These boots protected my feet from rocks, water, and blisters. I will definitely suggest these to other people!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No breaking in needed! These are the most comfortable hiking boots I've ever had. They never had that break in period; they were perfect from day one. My feet have never been sore after I wear them hiking. I was definitely in between sizes. I kept going back & forth between the 7.5 & 8. The 8 being too long & the 7.5 just a bit too snug. The person helping me brought out a 7.5 wide by mistake & it gave my toes just the little bit of extra wiggle room I was looking for. I don't have wide feet by any means so just an fyi for anyone out there struggling with sizing. Dry, super comfortable & with the right socks, warm enough in the cold. What more could you ask for?

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 Nice waterproof hiking boot I think this is a great hiking boot and I bought it since I've had other Vasque hikers which served me well. However, after dozens of miles hiked and climbed, I've decided it's too narrow for me and will return it. I've compared soles and it does run narrow. However the boot is well made and, other than the narrowness through the ball of the foot, comfortable after some breaking-in. The boot is full leather except in the tongue area, and thus (probably) more waterproof than most boots. I wanted the most waterproof boot I could find, but unfortunately won't have the opportunity to test that out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit and comfortable, but I've banged up the toes I bought these after my previous pair of Vasques, the Vista Ultradry boots, got manky and beaten-up from caving. The Perpetuum last is perfect for my low volume feet that are narrow at the heel and wide in the forefoot (I tried on the Vasque Breeze boots, but they pinched my toes). This pair is a joy to hike in - something about the rocker of the sole makes my strides long and easy. The only complaint that I have is that the toes have gotten really scuffed up, and I can't polish this leather. They are nicely waterproof too, and stood up well from everything from my job as a guide in California to tromping through slush while visiting my sister in Delaware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great support, Great waterproof, Great shoe I bought these shoes before leaving for a 4-day backpacking trip in southwest Colorado, and they were glorious! I did 20+ miles over the course of four days, and my feet didn't blister or feel uncomfortable at any point. If anything, it felt weird to take the Vasques off because my foot was so used to wearing them.... These shoes kept my feet warm and dry even after trudging through a few rivers and some snow. Logistics: I have narrow feet and an average arch. These shoes gave me the perfect amount of support and made my foot stay in place while hiking. And the neutral color is a plus; my shoes came with extra laces that were a maroon/brown color, which I really liked!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for Narrow Feet I have a narrow and flat foot and these were the only hiking boots I tried on at REI that felt like they fit. Wore them around town for a few days before hiking Big Sur with a full pack and had no blisters or hot spots. It was raining most of the time and my foot stayed dry and never slipped. Arch support is medium so I would get an insole if you have flat feet. Also, it doesn't have very high ankle support and my ankle did start to hurt on day two. The outter part of the shoe is now roughed up quite a bit and looks OLD after just one three day hike so I don't know how long they will last. Kind of disappointing in this regard since I really didn't trip or scrape my foot on anything noticible to warrant such wear and these were not cheap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Survives a bashing! Original purchase of Vasque Talus was in June 2012. Those boots have stood up well to frequent rugged off track walking and rock scrambling. Recently they performed well on a 2 week off track backpack in remote northern Australia where we continually waded rivers, climbed cliffs and walked all day in wet boots. Soles still look good but uppers show some wear. Two companions had NEW boots give out on this trip. I recently purchased TWO more pairs of Talus boots before the style vanishes.
