Rated 5 out of 5Â by Tominrm Excellent for Long Distance Hiking
Last year, when I was 67, I purchased a pair for my long distance hiking per recommendation from my doctor who is a serious hiker. I broke in my boots about a month before I left for my 600 mile hike across the northern Spain called El Camino de Santiago. It started from the France side of Pyrenees and ended at the western end of Spain, town of Muxia.
The boots were very comforable and water proof until the last day when I walked in the rain for 7 hours. It was a little bit damp inside that day.
The boots were comfortable and durable. It showed a little bit of wear (less than 1/4 inch wear at the back) but unless someone tells me I need to get a new pair, I am going back to the same hike this year with my old pair of Sundowner.

So far, the worst option in the all leather hiker category in my experience. Both LL Bean Cresta Hikers and Danner Mountain Lights offer superior fit, finish, and comfort. The leather is either very low quality or not genuine.

I keep coming back to these. They're getting me through Montreal winters right now. They've been to the top of Yosemite falls with a 60lb pack. All over the Sierras, and Santa Barbara's back country. Sometimes I wished they could breathe a little more, but I can solve that with a decent pair of socks. They're fast - I'm serious - try the same walk or hike with a different set of boots - you'd be surprised the difference. No blisters, no real issues with comfort. I use a pair of green super feet liners in mine. My right toe box is starting to show signs of wearing out. If Vasque can't repair it, I will probably have a burial service for these. I will immediately buy another pair.

my boots are 17 years old, I spent 2 years in a peace corps tour where I wore them all of the time! They have made it through kids, dogs, cabin builds and the only thing I have bought were new laces!
I LOVE these boots!

I walk 20 miles per week, and these boots last about 4 months.
Unacceptable. Vasque used to be a quality product, no more.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Kathy84 My husband's boots fell apart!
Both outer soles have completely turned loose and are coming off. These boots are several years old but worn only a very few times since he has a lot of boots and these were rarely worn. They still look brand new but with flopping soles. I am VERY unhappy with the failure of a feature touted to be an exceptional quality feature.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gadwall Long lasting and rugged
I bought my boots in 1989 and used them often. When I got them I was a BLM wilderness ranger in Southern Utah. I wore them everyday. I've since taken them on a myriad of hikes, hunts, and adventures ranging from Alaska to Papua New Guinea. They gave out on me this October while I was on a moose hunt in the Wind Rivers of Wyoming . I just bought a new pair. Can't go wrong with them.
