Feng W.wrote a review of Vasque Snowburban UltraDry Winter Boot - Men's on December 28, 2016
Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs small
I don't have wide feet. I do have collapsed arches, but other than that, I don't have weird shapes to my feet either. My insteps are medium to very slightly above medium height. All of this combines to say, if a shoe is anywhere close to "regular fit," it would probably fit me. These boots didn't.
Others already touched on the terrible lacing system so I won't beat a dead horse. What I found terrible is how tight (note: not snug, which is proper) these boots are. The heels are fine. The toe box is also a fairly proper, maybe even roomy fit. But the quarter and the instep is absolutely terrible, about the worst fit I've ever had the displeasure of putting on my feet.
Trying these bare feet. The side of the feet felt tight. Furthermore, the insteps were highly uncomfortable, almost painful. I tried playing with the lacing system to no avail. This is when I discovered that the tongue of the boot is stitched to the upper, which while I'm sure helps insulation and waterproofing, means an inappropriately tight boots will not allow any give to relieve discomfort. I couldn't wait to get them off my feet. I'm sure if I tried them with even thin socks, they'd be even worse.
Which makes me wonder. I'm not a wide foot and I don't have high insteps. If I can't even fit into these boots comfortably, who did Vasque make these for? What's the target market?
