Sundowner GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars This classic Vasque Sundowner boot was the best bang for the buck. It had excellent reviews and is an issue to most of our Park Rangers for use throughout the year. These boots amazingly, felt almost broken in when first laced on my feet. They are a no seam leather ankle high and can be worn comfortably as shoes around town or hiking in the Everglades or climbing Up Pikes Peak. Sand, dirt, H2O cannot detract from the steady comfort and support these classics provide. Unless you are a fanatic with… Full review

Sundowner GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great looking boot that performs well: this boot will do just about everything and do it well. I've owned the Vasque Sundowners before, and loved them, but as I was preparing for a trek through northeast New Mexico (Philmont Scout Ranch, for those that know it), I learned that Vasque now had their boots made in China, and a great many reviewers had concerns about the quality.

rated 3 of 5 stars They are wonderful, comfortable boots that fall apart *very quickly.* I like the way these boots fit, particularly with an innersole.

rated 5 of 5 stars I've had them for 8 months and just bought another pair to keep for the sad day when these give out. The absolute best light hiking shoes I've ever owned. I've been at this a good long while and I've tried many a shoe for many a task and Vasque has never disappointed. I've owned them since they were owned by Red Wing in Minnesota to whatever entity holds the name now and they've always performed. You won't be disappointed. Full review

St. Elias GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars This boot is very stable and comfortable. Having other Vasque boots over the years, I knew what to expect and was not disappointed. I would highly recommend this boot for backpackers as well as hikers. This boot is very stable and comfortable. Having owned other Vasque boots over the years, I knew what to expect and was not disappointed. I like that you have the ability to get your size in Wide as I have a wide foot and this allowed me to get the correct fit. I have worn these boots carrying 40+lbs… Full review
