I bought these boots about a little over a year ago. They were a bit stiff at first, but the third time out they were as comfortable as slippers. I used them to hike on the average of 6-13 mile day hikes with a back/hydration pack. They performed well for a light-midweight hiking boot. Would definitely buy again, despite the break-in period. I've used them for over a year and they are still in good shape despite their hard use.
Lightweight, but nicely supportive, not too stiff.
Use: dayhikes to rough trail
Break-in Period: good out of the box
Price Paid: $55
Lightweight, but nicely supportive, not too stiff. Not a lot of cushioning, but that's the price for lightness. Typical Vasque quality and fit, quite a bargain for the current discount price.
