The Classic is BACK!
Sundowner GTX® Review:
What a relief that Vasque FINALLY brought back a Sundowner worthy of the classic. The Redwing leather construction and sole are nearly identical to my old Sundowners. I broke these in for only a few hours before taking a 9-mile out-and-back hike on the AT to Mt. Rogers (highest point in VA). I had a sprained ankle, so only wore one pair of socks and did develop a nice heel blister around mile 6 on the descent--but that's my fault, really. No other issues breaking them in on the trail. I would recommend a little bit more break-in time in shorter hikes (or at least two pair of socks and maybe some mole skin!) Otherwise, the sole and heel support proved tough enough for rocky ascent/descent, with comfort and pliability for scrambling and bouldering. IWe will see whether they stand the test of time like my classics did. Now, if Vasque would just bring back the stainless steel hardware on the boots! SIZE NOTE: I have a pretty wide foot (not gargantuan, just wider than most American shoes). I originally bought the WIDE, but found that the sole wasn't really wider, there was just more volume added to the boot (leather), which just ended up creating a really uncomfortable spot where the toe bends after wearing them around the house for a little. I am not a fan of heavy socks and bulky insoles to fill in this volume, so I was able to exchange for the regular width and they are fine. They are snug, but not too a hiking boot should be. I am sure they will stretch a little. I currently wear two pair of thin socks for hiking, one pair for "casual" wear and breaking in around the house and at work. I will likely buy another pair of the Hawthorne color/model.

Monolith UltraDry™ Review:
PageI had to exchange the first pair of boots for a pair one half size larger. The exchange went very smoothly and Online Shoes paid for the shipping.

About Vasque

Vasque boots are among the best-made hiking boots available. A division of the Red Wing Shoe Company, Vasque is headquartered in Red Wing, Minnesota. We've been selling Vasque boots and shoes at and at our shoe stores for years, and have many happy customers who tell us that Vasque boots are the greatest!

Vasque offers their advanced technical features in footwear for both men and women. They group their shoes and boots into these categories:

Heavy-duty boots for extremely cold weather conditions, featuring a Vibram Clusaz sole for maximum traction on a variety of surfaces. Most of these boots are crampon-compatible.

Justifiably famous for backpacking boots, Vasque's most popular line continues to be its Sundowner series. Vasque backpacking boots are designed to provide as much support as possible, even helping to absorb the weight of heavy pack loads on long treks. These boots come with Super Hiker soles for deep traction on inclines and ever-changing terrain.

Perfect for long-trek hikes or everyday wear, Vasque hiking boots are very well built, arguably the best boots available.

Day Hiking
Specifically designed to keep your feet comfortable on hikes that may be challenging but not extremely long. They are a little lighter, but still rugged enough to handle changing trail conditions.

Sport Boots
Vasque sport boots are built for spirited outdoor activities, specifically designed for scrambling, rock hopping, or bouldering, but we've also found they work well for everyday work and walking.

Adventure Travel
Adventure travel boots take many of the technical features from Vasque outdoors products and streamline them with stylish good looks. These are designed for travelers trekking throughout the world who need a high level of comfort without features required for the wilderness.
