Skywalk GTX Hiking Boot
Vasque's Skywalk GTX Men's Hiking Boot goes excellently with good times around the fire and all the miles it took to get you there. The rough-side-out leather offers a classic look, but it's been decked out with a waterproof Gore-Tex Extended Comfort membrane to keep your toes dry when the mountain skies open up. Sharp rocks, rugged trails, and long days aren't an issue, either, thanks to the Skywalk's PU footbed, PU midsole, and stable TPU shank. All of which team up to provide all-terrain stability and work with the Pyrenees rubber outsole to keep you stable as a table no matter the trail or conditions.
- Comfort and waterproofing all in one boot
- Gore-Tex Extended Comfort membrane is breathable and waterproof
- PU midsole and footbed give you comfort on long hikes
- TPU shank protects from unexpected trail hazards
- Vasque Pyrenees outsole gives you plenty of grip and stability
- Item #VSQ001Q

I love these boots
I've been buying these boots since 1996 and they have never let me down. They fit like a glove. They last long too, unlike the asolo boots that fall apart after a year

Ordered a wide for my husband even though his feet are normal size because a lot of people said its a narrow boot, still to tight.

Nice Hikers with classic style
So far these boots are everything I had hoped they would be. I have a feeling they will be in my rotation for many years to come. As other's have mentioned, they offer a lot of support and are quite stiff. Just be patient as I have and they break in nicely. The soles are quite rugged, have great traction and seem like they will last forever. Goretex keeps your feet dry and seems to breathe.

Classic and Functional
I was looking for a pair of boots that would be functional, but still look good enough to wear around town. These have become my go-to boots for cold-weather hiking, snow-shoeing, work, and just about everywhere else. Water-proofing has not let me down and the boot has held up well. Like others have said these boots are a little stiff at first and take a minute to break in and if I am not wearing good socks, I still experience some rubbing. But, after a year of heavy use, they still look new and they feel great! I wear anything from a 9.5-10.5 depending on the shoe, but usually I order 10.5 for hiking boots. That's what I got in these and they fit well.

So far, so indestructible.
"Put it through the wringer" is right. In a year and a half of hiking, these have taken me through downpours, deep mud, creek crossings, dusty deserts, ice and snow, and hundreds of miles of rocky trail, and have felt great and come out looking brand new every time. Hot or cold temps, my feet are comfortable. The grip is exceptional on any surface, tread is holding up brilliantly, and I have had no construction issues, while I've seen my friends' boots develop holes at pinchpoints or let water in. I don't baby these and haven't treated them with anything, just try to get mud and dirt off when I get back home and give the leather a brush when it needs it. I usually wear 10.5 in street shoes and ordered an 11 in these after trying some on at the store. Just enough room to allow for multiple layers of socks or some hiking foot swell. They fit like a glove right out of the box and broke in well with a series of urban trail walks. The only problem I've had is the laces occasionally slipping out of the top open eyelet. I've read elsewhere (in a review for a different boot) that the big flat laces may be the problem, but it hasn't been enough of a bother to try any others, and it doesn't happen often. I'm looking forward to seeing how far these can take me.

Stiff and Stylish
These boots are light, comfy and big on the ankle support. They style hard and are stiff enough to support when carrying a pack. The toe box was initially a little tight, but after a few long days they broke in nicely. Smooth leather around the inside of the ankle is a nice detail. So far the Gore Tex is killing it in and out of streams.

So happy this iconic boot is back!
I have probably owned 10 pairs of this boot in my lifetime. I was aggravated when Vasque discontinued them but I'm elated they are back. After reading the first review on this page I was nervous but I took a chance. For me, they fit perfectly and the quality has actually improved. I wear an 11.5 in Nike and Adidas and the same is true in these boots. AWESOME!

Narrow, Mis-sized, Cheap Boot
These boots are mis-sized by at least a half size. The run small, narrow and the toe box is extremely narrow. These boots thrashed my feet. I'm an owner of an original pair, made in Italy, and the fit and quality are no where near what Vasque has put out by now making these cheaply in Vietnam.

The shoes come in wide. Does not look like backcountry is carrying wide. I have wide feet and the 10W fit me perfectly. I found the quality to be good. Did these blisters happen while wearing silk liners? Sorry for your pain.

I don't think that issue was caused by the construction of the boot, however, it could have been a sizing issue, or not being broken in enough before you trekked in them. make sure you break them in first, and also, where the correct socks and make sure you have the correct size boots. Good Luck! P.S. I purchased the same pair, and they are so durable, they needed to be broken in before I could trek in them. I started wearing them around the house and outside for short periods of time and then they felt alot better and I could wear them trekking. They are such a quality and durable boot it takes some effore to break them in first.

I have had an original Italian pair of these and I bought a pair of these new ones about a year ago. I wear a 12 wide and they fit like they were custom made! These are a bit stiffer and chunkier than the originals but the support is fantastic. Sounds like you didn't get measured and fitted correctly. If the size is correct then make sure to wear Marino wool socks with them as they breath the best and dry super fast which will go a long way towards keeping blisters at bay. Also make sure that they are WELL broken in before hitting a trail of any length. I wore mine to work and around town as well as long walks around the neighborhood. Make sure to take them off and rest your feet at the first sign of a hot spot before a blister has a chance to form. As long as the size is correct then follow my recommendations and these boots will be a great companion for years to come. I have worked in outdoor retail for many years and have had the opportunity to try out and own many of the best trail footwear out there and with a year and several hundred miles in mine I can truly and professionally say that these are some of the best boots I have ever worn.
