Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable hiking shoe.....but I wore these on the first 500 miles of my AT thru hike and they probably could have gone another 300 miles. The one problem with this is the Vibram sole. This particular Vibram sole has absolutely NO traction on wet rocks. It was like stepping on ice. I loved the comfort, the fact that it is offered in WIDE (if you can find them) and their durability, but after falling 25-30 times in 500 miles, it was time to try something different. A different brand shoe with a Vibram sole, although with a different tread pattern, proved MUCH more capable on wet terrain.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So comfortable but not durable Bought these just over a year ago based on the immediate comfort and they served as my daily shoe. Wore them for short hikes, but used much heartier boots for anything more than a few miles. Unfortunately the toe cap started to peel away after several months and the stitching began unraveling after about 10 months. I glued those up, but the unraveling continues. Should get years of use from shoes in this price range. I see now there's a 1 year warranty (my fault for not checking), but the lack of durability would probably keep me from replacing them with another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sturdy shoe I don't use these shoes for hiking. I use them for everyday use in the city. The shoe itself hugs my foot perfectly, and for a guy who has a wide foot, and has difficulties finding a proper fitting shoe, these are supreme. The other thing I have noticed is that even though they have a rugged sole and sturdy less flexible sole (for rugged climbs) I can still feel my feet through the sole, giving me a sense of connection similar to a running shoe. These are excellent shoes. No manufacturing issues after months of use. We'll see over time, but so far... again, supreme. Haven't tried them in the Fall or on trails yet, but I get the feeling they'll perform well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoe for easy hikes and walk abouts! I've been a long time customer of Vasque, and when I needed to get a new pair of lighter weight hiking shoes for a trip to Great Britain, these were my choice. They were easy and comfortable to wear on the airplane, and sturdy enough to handle all the miles of moderate hikes we did around Scotland, England, and Wales. Upon returning home, these shoes continued to perform well in the summer on hikes, but also are great shoes for walking to and from the bus stop in the Northwest on our wet, wintery days. After a year and a half the treads are starting to get a little thin. I'm still trying to decide if I want to get a new pair, or just have these great old work horses re-soled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoe I wear this shoe everyday for home lounging working in the yard and then off to work and church. After almost 2 years of wearing them they still look and feel great. Best shoe I have ever worn my only problem is wanting to buy new ones while the old ones still look so good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slippery Loved this shoes from the start, they're extremely stable and comfortable. However, that's all rendered useless when, as somebody else here pointed out, the traction is terrible. It doesn't even have to be that wet or moist; even on dry surfaces, these shoes are worse than regular running shoes, and so are completely unreliable when hiking on mountains. A true shame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Hiker I purchased the Mantra 2.0 about a year ago. I have been very pleased with their performance. They're breathable and the traction is great--on all surfaces. I just returned from a week of hiking in the Columbia River Gorge and their performance was flawless. I require custom orthotics and the Mantra has been more than accommodating, which I greatly appreciate. Overall, I definitely recommend these shoes--and Vasque. From a development standpoint, I have two critiques. First, I wish the tongue was slightly longer. For my foot to feel secure, I need to lace the shoe all the way to the top. The knot from my shoelaces often comes above the tongue and rests on my ankle; it's kind of annoying. (I wear a 10.5D and don't have awkwardly shaped or abnormally big feet.) Second, I have put ~50-60 miles on the shoes (recreational hiking, daily use--nothing too serious) and the toe cap is starting to peel away on the right shoe. It's nothing that can't be glued. But I am a little surprised, given the relatively minimal tenure on the trail. I've enjoyed the shoe and hope it stays in the Vasque lineup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still going strong I bought these hikers to walk the Camino de Santiago in Spain. After 500 miles of hiking they are still going strong. Very comfortable and light weight. These hikers worked great in all different types of terrain including mountain trails, pastures and city streets. They got soaked in down pours, covered in mud and logged plenty of miles, but are still holding together well . Extremely well built hiker!
