Great hiking boot!
By Ranger Dave, from Louisville, KY | January 24, 2011
During my selection process, I purchased two different brands of boots that were both highly rated. The Vasque Switchback GTX was true to size and width. I did buy 1/2 size larger since I typically wear a heavy sock with boots. As I was trying the boots on to determine if they were keepers, I did take them for a 2 mile walk on the tread mill. There was absolutely no break in period. Some review have made reference to the soles being slick in wet conditions. After wearing them 2-3 weeks in winter weather, the soles seems to be totally fine in wet sloshy conditions. I'm extremely happy with the Vasque boots.

Love them
By Anonymous, from Pittsburgh, PA | November 10, 2010
I bought these based on Vasques reputation and the Vibram sole. Thus far both have met my expectations for a lightweight all season hiker.

Great for a narrower foot
By Butch, from Western NY | July 06, 2009
Seldom do I get a medium shoe that feels any different that the wide size. This one fits like a glove and I had no "break in" period.

Vasque rules the trail
By Pete, from East Tennessee | June 24, 2009
Though no longer made in Italy, my new Vasque Switchback GTX boots really do the trick. They were comfortable and ready for the trail as soon as I put them on. I haven't gotten them wet in a stream yet but Goretex warrants them to be completely waterproof. So far I love them and will go hiking in the Smokies tomorrow!

Excellent hiking boots
By Matthew Pautz, from South Carolina | May 20, 2009
I was worried about purchasing these shoes online because no store around me has them, so I was buying blind. they were to be used on a week long trek through the grand canyon in summer. They worked very well! Extremely comfortable, very durable, and wore well. The boots were completely waterproof, as I waded through a creek several times, and as long as the water didn't cover the top of the shoe, my foot stayed dry. the gore tex lining made the shoe slightly hotter, but I was wearing two pairs of moisture wicking hiking socks and my feet never sweated. The thick sole is cushioning, has incredible traction and didn't slip over large slippery boulders. It insulated my foot very well from the hot ground. They had great ankle support and resisted torsion very well whenever I stepped on an uneven rock. there were several times where I would've rolled my ankle if I had been wearing different shoes, but I ended up making it home without any injuries. They did seem to get a little larger than their size after being broken in for a week or so, but it wasn't much of a problem. buy with confidence if you're looking for an excelling heavy hiking boot for serious terrain!

Vasque Switchback GTX
By Dave Hand, from Colorado Springs, CO | January 28, 2009
This is my second pair of the men's Vasque Switchback GTX shoes. I still wear the original pair, but I like them so much I simply wanted a "backup" pair. They fit well without a break-in, they are very comfortable, look good, provide good protection for hiking, motorcycling, working, or just casual wear.

A premium shoe
By Ken Brait, from Sun Valley, Idaho | July 19, 2008
Excellent shoe for vigorous hiking. The harder upper a real plus over the softer Vasque hiking shoe. Good ankle support. A first quality shoe all around.
