Rated 2 out of 5 by from Subpar urban shoes, abysmal hiking shoes First of all, the shoes are not waterproof. Even a small bit of water will go in and soak them. Secondary, protector is very weak and flimsy. Very bad traction. Extremely slippery in wet conditions to the point of being dangerous to wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made excellent shoe I have tried several brands of shoes similar to this. Even shoes as expensive were not as good - by a big margin. Key differences: better construction, upper lace-holes are metal (won't wear out!) and less bulk. One expensive competitor (variety called Moab for example) has fabric lace loops and a plastic upper lace loop - which simply do not last. These Vasquez shoes outside dimension and sole footprint are smaller than competitors making them much more comfortable to wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Shoe I bought the Mantra 2.0 (Beluga/Old Gold) two years ago. I live on a 13 acre property with a lot of yard work, and these shoes worked great. I also used them for hiking, fishing trips, and most importantly, working. The work environment was a DIY Hardware store. The concrete floors take a toll on the feet after just a few hours. These shoes provided the necessary support and comfort, and mitigated the "tired feet" syndrome. I am hard on my shoes, and these are on their last legs; however, a 2+ year life span is worth the price. These shoes seem to run a little smaller than other brands. I normally take a 9, but upsized to a 9.5 and the fit was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing that i have :D I have had my Mantra 2.0 for about 2 years and they are still in one peace. I use them as my only shoe's, I am about 370 Lbs so it is hard to find a shoe that work well and last a long time. the most i have ever has a show last is 6 months tops till i went to a Red Wing store and got the Mantra 2.0 the only thing that i have had to replace is the insole. My feet don't hurt they still look good. Can't wait for the next two years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Top Notch Shoe I've owned three pairs of the Mantra 2.0 over the past five years. I get about 2 years of wear per pair and I wear them practically every day for work (office) and weekend play. The only reason I don't give them 5 stars is the insert is not good for my feet. A set of Dr. Shoels inserts and I'm good to go. The build quality is superb. I have nothing peeling apart and the soles are in great shape even after 2 years of concrete pounding. The greatest wear I see is in the lining in the heal area. The fabric begins to tear after about 9 months of slipping them off. I tend to slip them off without untying them so I'm putting stress on the area so take my input with a grain of salt. Overall, I love these shoes and will buy a fourth pair in the next six months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These Shoes I've had these shoes for a couple months now. Even the break in period was not uncomfortable. I live on a few acres of forest on Washington's Olympic peninsula. I wear these every day, whether I'm working on my property, hiking, fishing, or every day use. This is one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I've bought in a while. I strongly recommend them. I will certainly buy them again if they still make them when these wear out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting I wore them daily to work where I was on my feet all day plus daily walking on gravel and sod. I put A LOT of miles on them and my only complaint is they were very slippery on wet floors for a few months until the soles were broke in. I'm very impressed with the longevity. Definitely worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still rocking these I'm a 300+ lb. guy with wide feet living in the northeast (rain, snow). Bought these, after some research, as my third choice for an everyday hiking-style boot. The first two brands were too narrow and sent back... I'm glad I settled on these. Even though the price seemed high, I gave these a go. Three years of everyday use... And I'm back for more. They were a bit rigid and clunky at first, and heavy (if I'm being honest), but they broke in very nicely and have not broken down. They still fit like a glove. I've been through new balance, asics, brooks, tims before and not once did they last more than a year. My Vasques are still on my feet today, three years later!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I purchased these shoes on the recommendation of the salesman at the store and I am glad that I did. I walk six miles daily for my job (lost of stairs) and these are the most comfortable shoes I have worn in a very long time. I do not want to take them off! thank you for saving my feet, I have much more energy when my feet don't hurt. Keep up the good work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just awesome hiking shoes !!! I hiked the Grand Canyon, rim to rim 3 times with this shoes... not a single issue, superb traction, very flexible, build to last..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still going strong I bought these hikers to walk the Camino de Santiago in Spain. After 500 miles of hiking they are still going strong. Very comfortable and light weight. These hikers worked great in all different types of terrain including mountain trails, pastures and city streets. They got soaked in down pours, covered in mud and logged plenty of miles, but are still holding together well . Extremely well built hiker!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wide size not wide I ordered the regular and the wide. I compared both the rubber outsole and pulled out the insoles to compare. Absolutely no difference in width even though one pair is marked "wide". I would be very interested if Vasque can tell me what dimension is different between the wide and regular.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sturdy shoe I don't use these shoes for hiking. I use them for everyday use in the city. The shoe itself hugs my foot perfectly, and for a guy who has a wide foot, and has difficulties finding a proper fitting shoe, these are supreme. The other thing I have noticed is that even though they have a rugged sole and sturdy less flexible sole (for rugged climbs) I can still feel my feet through the sole, giving me a sense of connection similar to a running shoe. These are excellent shoes. No manufacturing issues after months of use. We'll see over time, but so far... again, supreme. Haven't tried them in the Fall or on trails yet, but I get the feeling they'll perform well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So comfortable but not durable Bought these just over a year ago based on the immediate comfort and they served as my daily shoe. Wore them for short hikes, but used much heartier boots for anything more than a few miles. Unfortunately the toe cap started to peel away after several months and the stitching began unraveling after about 10 months. I glued those up, but the unraveling continues. Should get years of use from shoes in this price range. I see now there's a 1 year warranty (my fault for not checking), but the lack of durability would probably keep me from replacing them with another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great support and comfort These shoes are very comfortable and provide excellent support. I have a flat arch and my feet will over pronate especially on uneven surfaces, but not with the Vasque Mantra 2.0. My gait was significantly improved. I had more energy with my step. Hiking groomed trails to rocky beaches I found these shoes to have great traction, kept my feet warm and dry and are very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoe for easy hikes and walk abouts! I've been a long time customer of Vasque, and when I needed to get a new pair of lighter weight hiking shoes for a trip to Great Britain, these were my choice. They were easy and comfortable to wear on the airplane, and sturdy enough to handle all the miles of moderate hikes we did around Scotland, England, and Wales. Upon returning home, these shoes continued to perform well in the summer on hikes, but also are great shoes for walking to and from the bus stop in the Northwest on our wet, wintery days. After a year and a half the treads are starting to get a little thin. I'm still trying to decide if I want to get a new pair, or just have these great old work horses re-soled.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slippery Loved this shoes from the start, they're extremely stable and comfortable. However, that's all rendered useless when, as somebody else here pointed out, the traction is terrible. It doesn't even have to be that wet or moist; even on dry surfaces, these shoes are worse than regular running shoes, and so are completely unreliable when hiking on mountains. A true shame.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Comfortable shoe, but needed stronger outersole I ordered both the Breeze 2.0 low and the Mantra 2.0 in a size 14 so I could compare the two before deciding. Unfortunately, I wasn’t satisfied with either one. The first thing I do when I pick up a shoe is put my hand inside the shoe and press the outersole in the ball of the foot area (with my other hand) to see how strong the outersole is. Right off the bat, there was a noticeable difference between the shoes. The Breeze 2.0 low seemed to have a much stronger outersole. The Mantra 2 outersole was too weak for my taste. Unfortunately, the curved last on the Breeze 2.0 did not fit my foot well (and it seemed a little smaller to me), while the straight last on the Mantra 2 seemed like a perfect fit for me. But I was concerned that the weaker outersole on the Mantra wouldn’t give me the support I needed while hiking (and if it did, that it wouldn’t last too long). If the Mantra 2 had the outersole of the Breeze 2, I would have found the perfect shoe, and been a very happy customer. Since the Mantra 2 costs the same as the Breeze 2, I don’t understand the weaker outersole. I’ve noticed a disappointing trend among hiking shoe companies regarding these weaker outersoles, and the outersole on the Mantra didn’t seem to be weaker than what you would find on a lot of low hikers on the market today. But I had hoped Vasque would have had a stronger outersole on the Mantra.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Hiker I purchased the Mantra 2.0 about a year ago. I have been very pleased with their performance. They're breathable and the traction is great--on all surfaces. I just returned from a week of hiking in the Columbia River Gorge and their performance was flawless. I require custom orthotics and the Mantra has been more than accommodating, which I greatly appreciate. Overall, I definitely recommend these shoes--and Vasque. From a development standpoint, I have two critiques. First, I wish the tongue was slightly longer. For my foot to feel secure, I need to lace the shoe all the way to the top. The knot from my shoelaces often comes above the tongue and rests on my ankle; it's kind of annoying. (I wear a 10.5D and don't have awkwardly shaped or abnormally big feet.) Second, I have put ~50-60 miles on the shoes (recreational hiking, daily use--nothing too serious) and the toe cap is starting to peel away on the right shoe. It's nothing that can't be glued. But I am a little surprised, given the relatively minimal tenure on the trail. I've enjoyed the shoe and hope it stays in the Vasque lineup.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable hiking shoe.....but I wore these on the first 500 miles of my AT thru hike and they probably could have gone another 300 miles. The one problem with this is the Vibram sole. This particular Vibram sole has absolutely NO traction on wet rocks. It was like stepping on ice. I loved the comfort, the fact that it is offered in WIDE (if you can find them) and their durability, but after falling 25-30 times in 500 miles, it was time to try something different. A different brand shoe with a Vibram sole, although with a different tread pattern, proved MUCH more capable on wet terrain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoe I wear this shoe everyday for home lounging working in the yard and then off to work and church. After almost 2 years of wearing them they still look and feel great. Best shoe I have ever worn my only problem is wanting to buy new ones while the old ones still look so good.
