When you imagine what a hiking boot should be, the Sundowner is the vision that comes to mind. The longevity and fan loyalty of this style is no fluke; the simplicity, function and elegance of this hiker may very well be boot nirvana.

UPPER

One piece, USA-tanned, 2.4 mm S.B. Foot leather upper is the ultimate in durability and comfort. Less seams equal fewer hotspots and the longer you wear them, the more custom the fit becomes. A Gore-Tex® membrane protects from inclement conditions, and classic d-ring eyelets are tried and true and offer speed lacing. New for 2015, the Sundowner will be built around the original shaped last, for the classic fit so many have trusted on the trail.

SOLE

Once again, the Sundowner is offered in the original rubber traction sole with polyurethane midsole. This combination is a perfect blend of trail support and comfort for long miles. Vasque’s proprietary Pyrenees rubber sole takes direct design cues from the original, with aggressive lug pattern, excellent mud clearing and rockered heel for a natural foot transition on trails. The single density polyurethane midsole is coupled with a PU comfort footbed for excellent torsional structure for rough trails while offering great underfoot comfort for long days out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back to being the best Like many others I have worn Sundowners since the late 1980's. I have had 6-7 pair and still own 3. I happen to have 2 Italian versions to compare to the newest pair which was made in Vietnam. I have to say that I am just as happy with the new 'Nam made boots as I was the Italian ones. Yes, there were production issues when the boots were made in China for a few years, but in my experience those problems are gone. If you liked the old Italian made Sundowners, you will probably like the new ones (just avoid any made in China IMO). When considering price, make sure to factor in the cost of a new pair of insoles to go with these boots. The Vasque insoles that come with the boots are poor for anything but light use. I think you are almost expected to replace them. I always replace with a pair of SuperFeet Green insoles and end up with fantastic support and stability. I've had multiple back surgeries and so hiking and backpacking like I used to is very difficult for me. The stability that these boots provide allows me to maintain some of my outdoor activities and makes working everyday more tolerable. I love my boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Boots I've owned a pair of Vasque Sundowner boots since I was about 13 years old. I am now 45 years old and I believe I will be buying my 4th pair of these boots. Each pair of the boots I have owned in my lifetime have been resoled at least once before buying the next pair. The quality of these boots in unbelievable. The boots seem to mold exactly to my feet and and become better with time. I'm not even considering buying something else as it has finally become time to replace my favorite boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only boots I'll ever own Bought my first pair back in 1991 when I was getting ready to go to Philmont New Mexico with the Boy Scouts. Outgrew them and bought my second pair when I started working at ups in 1994. It's January 2018 and I still wear that second pair on a daily basis. I sell tools for a living and am on my feet in and out of shops everyday, in the rain, snow, mud, grease, oil, and all other kinds of yuck. These are the best boots I have ever owned. They stand up to the worst you can put them through, and keep you dry, warm, and comfortable while doing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ur-boot for hiking It is difficult to review Vasque Sundowners as they are simply the only serious hiking boots I have ever owned. I am 43 and have been through three pairs. I will say this pair, waited.to review them until I had taken them out, stood up to five days in Congaree NP backcountry well. Swamp is particularly troubling, tested the waterproofing well, often up to our ankles in heavy mud. No issues. These are a serious boot, not light, but solid.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sundowner I love this company and there sundowner model but I honestly don't like the new design of the sundowner n feel it was best looking the way they had it for years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could be a different boot I purchased mine in 1994. I work in production, and back then I was touring on large rock tours, and trying to hike in between tours. I wanted a boot that could do both, so I go the black ones. I am lead to believe that they are no longer made in Italy. I cannot speak to the truth of this, but I am sure the web will tell you. What I can say is that mine have lasted me over 20 years, and took any and all abuse I could throw at them. I still where them today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Report After 14 Months of Wear I bought a pair of Sundowners back in May of last year. I've worn them probably 200+ times in the 14 months since then, as I usually put them on for my daily 45-minute hike. I walk on woods roads, including steep hills, and sometimes on granite on nearby mountain trails. I also wore the boots to town during winter when it was snowy or slushy. From the beginning, the boots broke in nicely (took about two weeks). They're still waterproof, and the sole offers excellent traction. I am completely sold on these excellent boots. I think they're way nicer looking than the nylon/leather hiking shoes that are so common these days. Good classic boots that weigh a reasonable amount and give my feet good support. I have no reservations in rating them with 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Boot it is an exigent boot for the first 500 miles and after that you will see wear in the boot. besides that it is a solid boot.
