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 Cleaning I wore my boots in a incredible 8 days hiking in the Peruvian Andes, above 4,500 m! the boots resisted very well ice and water but they are very muddy, how to clean it?? Maintenance suggestions?? So I can keep using my boots

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Vasque Sundowners are dead! Proudly wore the Vasque Sundowners for +30 years when they were a quality shoe built in Italy. The new Chinese model is junk and falls apart in mere months, so I get my old Vasque Sundowners re-worked and avoid the current trainwreck. Never buy the current Vasque Sundowers, TERRIBLE!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loved these boots until... When I first received my Sundowners, I was excited as I have had several other pairs of Vasque boots that lasted well and performed in harsh conditions. I wear them daily as a work boot and found the Sundowners to be both very stylish and comfortable. They were excellent boots for about 5 months until i noticed my feet were getting wet. After I inspected them, I discovered that the sole had broken in half on both the right and left boot. As my foot would flex you could see the entire cross section of the sole. Not long after, the crack had spread through the entire sole and the boots have been rendered uncomfortable as my feet that were once always dry are now always wet. I will think twice about purchasing Vasque boots in the future and I recommend you do the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back to being the best on the market I owned many pair of Sundowners in the early to mid 90's and loved them and still have a pair. I gave up buying them after they moved production to China due to quality issues but these new models from Vietnam are just like the old Italian made ones and I might even go buy another pair next month... THANK YOU Vasque restoring faith in a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Boots, watch your size When it came time to buy boots the only one I looked at was the Sundowner. I wear a 13(W) in EVERY shoe I own, so imagine my excitement when I found a pair of Sundowners online, in a 13(W), on sale. They were the last ones too. I got them today, and wouldn’t you know it, they’re too big. My heel is sliding around all over the place, even in thick hiking socks. Also of note, I felt my toe on the side of the boot, so even the W is on the narrow side. I know they will stretch, but just be aware. A quick search also shows me there is no 12.5 (D) or (W). Hugely disappointing. I’m afraid a 12 will be too small and I will have to look at another brand. Plus I can only find the wides online so if I order them I have to take a shot in the dark, and risk disappointment again.Where’s the 12.5?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wear these every day! I received my boots on Feb 20, 2018. I have worn them every day since. They have been oiled with mink oil once. I am now a member of a landscaping crew and am continuing to wear these daily. I don’t think I’ll ever own another unless I need steel toe (ok Vasque, we need a Steel Toe version!!)

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.
