      Comments about Vasque Sundowner GTX Mid-Weight Backpacking Boot - Men's:

      This is the third pair I have owned in over 20 years. I wore the first pair for most of those 20 years until they became too small (your feet keep growing) and finally wore out. Until that time, they became my city shoes. That meant a lot of wear.

      My second pair has been for hiking, but I decided to buy a new larger pair after the first pair finally died out on me. The Second Pair will now be my city shoes.

      I love the Vasque brand and have these and the skywalks. I wore the Skywalks when trekking in Australia and NZ. Vasques are really comfortable shoes for hiking in the woods or urban terrain.

      I can't say anything bad about them.

        Comments about Vasque Sundowner GTX Mid-Weight Backpacking Boot - Men's:

        Great classic full leather boot at a great price. I've always been more comfortable in full height boots; and wanted these for European hiking expecting wet weather and trails. (But I did not get a drop of rain while hiking completely across England!) Unfortunately, I bought these boots at the last minute before my hike and had not broken them in properly resulting in pinching of my left big toe and the tops rubbing both my ankles.

          Bought this pair to replace the ones I got in July 1990. This pair looks to be the same shoes, they feel really good, stable and substantial. The only thing I don't get is they have a dress shoe heel style, sharp edge at the back. It doesn't give quite the same feel that you expect in a hiking shoe. Be careful of slick rocks.

                    A:

                    You will periodically need to treat the leather so that the leather will retain its pliability. The Goretex lining in this boot provides the water proof barrier.
