Rated 4 out of 5Â by mtnkiwi Comfortable while hiking, laces broke, twice.
The boots are rugged and stand up well for full day hikes and bushwacking. Driving in them is uncomfortable as the toebox is too narrow for me, but I'm not bothered by it while actually hiking. My major complaint with these are the laces. Within a few uses the outer lace had completely ripped exposing the inner portion of the lace, making them impossible to tie. I have had to replace the laces twice in the year I've been using them.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Stickman Keys to a good fit
I have owned my boots for about a month now and put over 200 miles on them. I have to say they are very comfortable right from the start. I think they are great boots. Listed below are some keys to a good fit:
â¢ Buy the boot large 1/2 to 1 full size bigger
â¢ Use thicker socks
â¢ V-jam eyelets (3rd from top) are great ; they allow you to lock in the lower boot tightness independently from the top laces of the boot . You have infinite ways to adjust the fit accordingly.
Remember to take of your boots and they will take care of you.
Hope you enjoy your boots, they are definitely worth it.

I'm a field biologist. I hike roughly 60 miles a week. These boots have only held up for 5 months. Not impressed. I will be taking them back. Probably will never buy vasque again after this.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Ben1 Didn't last long
It takes a good bit to break these boots in, but once that was done I absolutely loved them. they fit great, become insanely comfortable, and look really good with a pair of jeans around town sometimes too. Sadly, yesterday morning I was working in wet conditions, and sure enough, there was a hole in the gortex. So my entire ten hour shift my foot was soaking wet. Normally, I don't write reviews. Given I spent over $200 on these boots to avoid anything like this, I think I should have gotten more than 9 months out of them ( 5 of those months it was too hot to wear them!)

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Takoda Need a pair for my hands!
i do a lot of scrambling on my hikes and forays into the west coast mountains. I love the boots and it's one of the rare boots where a wide actually feels both wide and deep in the toe area.
Grip is very good on dry substrate and pretty good on wet. About as good as I have had.
Now, I just need a pair for my hands and I'd be flying up those last few hundred yards to the summit!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by VasqueFan Perfect Trail Hiking Boots.....
This is my first pair of Vasque Hiking boots, and I found out about them through reading trusted reviews from serious hikers who pay for their own gear.
I am a weekend trail and off-road hiker for the most part. However, I use these boots for a lot more than hiking, they are just that comfortable.
These boots are as expected, and I expected a a lot.
They are well contructed and hug your ankles the way you need on and off trail.
The Vibram soles are perfect as always.
The boot is extremely comfortable on and off trail and is confidence expiring.
The look is simple and all function, non of the "future-tech iboot" look of competitors.
The fit is exceptional, with minimal wear in time.
Tons of support without being suffocating.
*I would strongly recommend getting a half size up for most people.
I have read a lot of complaints about the "toe box"
The thing that a lot of people don't seem to realize is that any purpose built boot will not fit everyone.
These boots are a slimmer more "European" fit, and that's what my feet are.
I realize that it's convenient buying things on-line, but I suggest that a pair of specialty shoes be purchased in a good store where you can ensure your feet fit the style of the shoe.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Team26racer What did you do to my boot?
I have been buying the 7160 m boots in a 8.5 every year for 8 years. My pair manufacted in 10/14 fit and worked great. When I Put on my pair manufacted in 9/15 they were narrow and short. Killed my feet and I went back to my old ones. Vasque definitely changed something with the construction of this boot. I can't wear these any more. Please help!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LANGWS 18 miles right out of the box
Received them on Monday and did a 18 mile dayhike to Snowmass Lake on Wednesday. Moderate rocky trail was smoothed out by these boots for this 63 year old 200 lb man. Ordered 1/2 size larger and they were a perfect fit. Heel and ankle support was great and toe box was good for my slightly wide foot. The lacing setup allows some flexibility to adjust the fit. Can't wait for next week's hikes!
