rated 5 of 5 stars I purchased a pair of Vasque Montana boots in 1972 and had them for over 20 years. In fact when I moved to Texas in 2003 I still had them. I purchased a pair of Vasque Montana boots in 1972 and had them for over 20 years. In fact when I moved to Texas in 2003 I still had them. If comfort is was your thing, these boots molded the die and fit like a glove and never caused me any pain. I called them my shit kickers because I used them in every condition and walked most of California with them, eight… Full review

Talus Trek Mid UltraDry

rated 5 of 5 stars Relatively light; comfortable from day one; good grip; waterproof. My regular hike has a fair amount of talus, so these are appropriately named! With a 12yo and a 10yo as hiking companions, I'm not breaking any distance records. Nor am I—yet—on really challenging terrain. I think these would be fine in either scenario, though. They're certainly more than enough for Connecticut's mostly benign trails, even the aforementioned talus. They show a few scrapes and other signs of wear, but I didn't… Full review

Sundowner GTX

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Great leather, but the sole is pure garbage. I had a pair from 1999 until 2008. They were the best boots I ever owned, but (like all boots) eventually just wore out. I wear them every day, in every condition. I replaced my '99 models with the new model. They looked identical, but the new ones broke in MUCH faster (about two weeks instead of a month). At about the year mark the sole separated from the leather. I assumed this was due to how I treated them, but was upset as $200 boots should last longer… Full review

Breeze GTX XCR

rated 1 of 5 stars Thanks to these shoes, I fractured my tailbone and was a huge liability to my fellow travellers. Absolutely no traction on wet rock, wet limestone, and mossy inclines, which makes this basically useless when I was travelling during the rainy season in Nepal's hills, mountains, and caves. Feet slip no matter how tightly laced, leading to bruising under my toenails. I could have done better with my sneakers. That's how bad my experience was. Fair walking shoes. Pathetic wet ground traction. Low water… Full review

Breeze 2.0 Low GTX

rated 3 of 5 stars The Vasque Breeze 2.0 GTX is a very comfortable sport shoe best suited for hiking and lightweight backpacking. This is 4-star comfort with 2.5-star durability, but it fits the niche I need: a low-top hybrid boot/shoe that accepts my custom orthotics and wears comfortably out of the box. I've been using these since mid-2015 and just bought the third pair.                                                    [click picture to enlarge] About the shoe:… Full review
