Comfort boots are designed and manufactured using specific technologies to ensure comfort over long duration of use. Many comfort boots have removeable insoles to allow the wearer adjustablility in fit and room for inserting orthotics.
GTX, which stands for Gore-Tex®, is the registered trademark name of a synthetic waterproof and breathable fabric used for making waterproof and breathable outerwear, sportswear and as lining material on footwear. The main feature of the Gore-Tex® fabric is a triple-layer membrane that provides an impenetrable barrier against wind and water while maintaining breathability.
Vasque Sundowner Classic GTX Comfortable

I love these boots. I ordered my 2nd pair a year ago. I bought my first boots four years ago. I hike every weekend (close to the mountains). I wear these boots year around. They are not too hot in the summer. Waterproof for the spring, winter, and fall. There is not a break in period. The boots are so comfortable the first time you put them on and thereafter. They are 1/2 size too large even if you wear thick socks. I highly recommend these boots.

The boot is great for hiking and work. I wear the boot daily as a landscape contractor. I have hiked 12 miles a day and my feet are not sore. They give me great support and are lightweight to "boot". Recommend highly.
