Chipping Soles

I’ve owned two pairs of these boots and have found the soles to start chipping away early (1-2 hiking seasons). For the price, I’d like to get four or five seasons of wear at least!

Buy them

Straight out of the box, I knew I was in love. They are rugged, lightweight, and good-looking. The first outing was on a very uneven rocky beach and they preformed beautifully. I purchased the wide and glad I did.

Not too durable

I bought these boots a few months ago, and already there have been several issues with seams tearing and soles peeling off. I find them very comfortable and love them on hikes, but they do not have the durability I was hoping for. In my opinion, their quality isn’t high enough to match the price.

Did not fit like a 7W

I love the boots, however, it does not fit like a 7 W. It was tight and my toes were a bit cramped too. I would recommend sizing up if you want to try them out.

I love this boot!

First, I’d like to share how amazing Vasque’s customer service is. I initially purchased a differed boot that wasn’t hardy enough for the type of hiking I do- Vasque allowed me to return the boot immediately! So instead of going back to the brand I was with before (Scarpa) I decided to stick with Vasque and purchased this boot with my refund money. I am so glad I did. These boots really hold up with all the things the white mtns throw at you with little break in needed. I did need to loosely lace the boots and insert a toe box stretcher for my own needs but the boot has now confirmed to my foot. I fully submerged both feet by mistake several times. My feet were kept dry and warm. I felt my ankles were supported and my boots got more comfortable as my hike went on. I think I used the first 10 miles of the boot to break it in- and I just completed a 20 mile, 4 4000k peak hike in the whites. Zero blisters or hot points on my feet. Thank you vasque!!!

Leather Treatment Y/N?

What a great boot right out of the box!! Best boot i have had in over 10 years. i have a concern however - the leather is getting quite dry as i am in some dry arctic conditions at the present time. Should the leather be treated to avoid any damage? what would be the best product to keep the leather soft without blinding off the weatherproofing and breathability of the Goretex? Thanks

Had to buy a shoe enlarger because the stiffness of the shoes was killing my bunion. Couldn't wear it more than 2 hours at first. Now they are perfect! Really waterproof and cute looking !

Best shoe I’ve ever owned ❤️

I bought these boots a month or two ago and honestly, I’ve been spoiled. No other shoe will do lol. I have hypermobile joints, arthritis in my feet, bunions, and roll my ankles a lot; I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect shoe for years so that I could not be in pain every time I walk and this is it! Fantastic arch support (especially with a memory foam Redwing insole), great ankle support (no more rolling ankles), and the fit and construction are perfect. Very little breaking in, just squeaky for a bit. Absolutely recommend for people with delicate feet or folks who need a lot of support! I can work on my feet all day and not feel any pain. Thank you Vasque, I’ll be back for more ❤️❤️ ALSO I was bar hopping in the pouring rain (do not recommend) and I was totally soaked except for my feet. 100% waterproof so far!!

Be aware of width and ankle tightness

I have put around 250km on these boots by now. Positives: Fully weatherproof, you can wade through water, and fantastic grip from the soles on wet rocks, loose gravel, sand - any terrain. Looks awesome and I think it could have longevity. Negatives: The laces that came with the boot kept loosening, which was a quick fix. As other reviewers have mentioned, it runs a bit narrower and some blisters on pinky toes but got better with time. Biggest issue however is that the ankle support is tight and when I do longer trips I have significant bruising on my ankle bone to the point that I am now looking at new boots unfortunately
