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 3 out of 5 by from They changed these boots again I have worn these boots daily for years. But the latest model has moved from China to Vietnam and is very narrow for a wide boot. I will be changing to another brand to find a boot that fits. These were good boots when they has a true wide offering.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from New model runs narrow I've managed to ware out my third pair of sundowners, so I wanted to get a new pair, but 11W (which is what previous 3 pairs were) is now too narrow for me. I'm very sad to have find a new boot - I loved sundowners.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from New model runs narrow I bought a pair of Sundowner's 10 years ago and loved them. Those were 10.5M and perfectly sized. I just bought a new pair. First I ordered 10.5M, but they were way too small, so I exchanged them for 11M. These seemed to fit, but now after wearing them for 3 days, I am wishing I had exchanged them for 11W. They are very narrow and squeezing my forefoot. I don't have wide feet, and I have never needed a wide size of any shoe. But these are definitely tight. I'm hobbling along hoping they will stretch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An awesome boot that lasts and lasts!! I bought these back around 2000 or a little after and they are still in great shape, even after me neglecting them quite a bit. I've worn them hiking and hunting in all kinds of weather and they have protected me without fail. Today I decided to finally clean them with some saddle soap and then apply some mink oil and they look almost new again! I noticed that the insole was getting worn out, so I reached out to Vasque to see if the original was available to purchase from them. The rep told me the original wasn't available, but she would send me a Red Wing insole that would fit. She took my address and sent them for free! I knew the boots were good, but I had no idea the customer service was even better! Thanks Vasque, you have a customer for life!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Vasque Changed Sizing I’ve been wearing Sundowner’s for years and they are hard to break in, but that’s not the issue. Last buy was a 10.5W and they were too big, so this time, I bought a 10W and they felt small, but I just thought they needed to be broken in, like always, but they never got comfortable and still felt small. Turns out, they changed the design and they actually ARE SMALLER! When I contacted Vasque customer relations, they basically told me to pound sand. This is a direct quote from email: “We recently redesigned the Sundowner using the original Italian inspired design. That did cause the boots to become a bit more narrow and snug. Unfortunately, we only offer exchanges and returns on our product within 30 days of purchase, and the boots must be un-worn. Please let me know if you have any further questions.” Now I have a pair of $219 boots that hurt my feet and do not fit, even if I wear dress socks. BUYER BEWARE!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from New pair of Sundowner GTX I have been reading all the reviews on the Sundowner GTX. There are good reviews on the 1st version of the Italian made Sundowner and super bad reviews on the 2nd generation of China made, it breaks easily. Lately, I have been reading mixed reviews on the 3rd generation of Vietnam made. However, I wanted a pair of Sundowner for a long time and decide to purchased it off Amazon for the Christmas ’18. I always wanted a pair of lasting leather boots. My previous pair of Timberlands boots lasts me almost 9 years, re-sole multiple times. Reading off the web, I was advised to purchase a size bigger for Vasque. I took the advised and purchased it with a size 8W. When the boots arrived, it fit nicely, but the 8W, it doesn’t feel like it is wide. However, it still feels comfortable. Before I wore the shoes, I applied a layer of Obenauf’s heavy duty LP, it waterproofs the leather and made it slightly soft. I would call my trusty leather oil. Blisters and pain will always accompany with a good pair of boots and it will take time for the boots to conform to the feet’s, the way one moves and etc. I have been in the army before and when dealing with leather boots, you have to take a little bit of time. This is my first week, and I have blisters as expected and a bit tight on the ankle. At present, it is the first couple of days wearing these boots, so I have put everything on average on the review. I will be wearing these boots on every day for about 5-7 km walk. I will come back in 6 months time and see how this boots fair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Eyelet digging into ankle....bad warranty I had a pair of classic Sundowners that were comfortable and rock solid for many years. I read many reviews before buying another pair, due to the years of poor China made boots. Finally bought a pair 2yrs ago and have barely worn them. The top metal eyelets dig into my ankles, making the boots unwearable. They're either spaced poorly or the tongue is too narrow to provide padding from them. I'm an active guy and understand the breaking in process, but these just aren't good boots. I contacted customer support and the reply was basically...."Sorry, but you're out of warranty." Well, that was $200 wasted. Won't buy Vasques again.
