First off, there are way too many shoes that are really boring in terms of color, and then there are a lot of shoes that seem to be bright just because they can be. Vasque hit the right medium with the yellow peat color. I've had them for about a year, probably put close to 300 trail miles on them, plus just running and kicking around town, and I've gotten numerous comments on the color. I caught a friend once taking a picture of my shoes while hiking, so yeah, if you're going to get these, definitely get the yellow.
Aesthetics aside, they're a great pair of shoes. I was a little skeptical of the built-in footbed at first, but I'm a believer now. They're perfectly molded to my feet and feel like a million bucks when I put them on. Okay maybe not a million bucks, but still pretty good. They're pretty durable too, as the number of miles can attest to. The only real damage has happened in the past month when the sole started tearing off the rest of the shoe and now I can see my socks... They breathe really well, lots of mesh to air out my stinky paws during a run. The sole is pretty sticky, not like climbing shoe sticky, but it'll earn your trust going over a boulder field.
The one downside is the toebox is slightly on the narrow side. I've got fairly wide feet so my pinkie toes have started grumbling about the width, not to the point of full on blisters, but definitely unhappy.
All said, 5/5 for the durability and steeze.
