Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Sturdy Hiking Boot Bought this pair to replace an old pair. I had the old Italian ones, these seem comparable. I purchased the wide size this time and I am pleased with the fit. I like these boots because of the minimal seams, and the all leather outer. The soles would come apart from the leather on my old pair and I expect the same with these eventually. I glued them back on, until the rubber started to disintegrate, which is when I purchased this pair. They can get hot, but they have a bit more ankle protection, and are vary durable when compared to hiking boots with breathable material. They look encumbering, but once broken-in they are very free for such sturdy boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The New (2015) Sundowners Rock! I've been waiting and watching to see when the quality of Vasque boots would finally be back. Well, they're back folks! I used to own what was called "waffle stompers" back in the 80's. They were serviceable, utilitarian at best, but I always wanted a pair of Vasque Sundowners and was envious of my friends who were lucky enough to have them. Well, today I am an active outdoorsman, hike casually and regularly ride a motorcycle, all of which I plan to use the boots for. To speak about the quality of the leather, the soles, the form and fit, I simply can't say enough. These boots are high quality and I look forward to years of using them. If you're like me and have been waiting for the return of the infamous Sundowner, rest assured they're back!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Move production Back to Italy. The vintage sundowners made in Italy were the best hiking boots of all time. Once production went to China, they never felt the same again. I've tried two pair of the Chinese sundowners over the years, and now I look for used Italian sundowners on eBay. Vasquez, why not take production back to Italy? Even if the boots end up costing twice as much, it would be better to spend more up front for quality than to have to keep replacing cheaply built boots. Your customers know the difference.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not at all like the original Sundowners I bought a pair of Sundowners in the late '90's and backpacked Alaska, British Columbia, Mt Rainier Natl Park, parts of the AT and the PCT, all of the Ozark Highland Trail and many hundreds of miles in between. I loved those boots! Alas, the time came for new ones. Unfortunately, I paid about the same for the second pair but don't think the new ones will come close to the mileage the original one did.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Same great look...not the same craftsmanship Owned a few pair of Sundowners in the Mid to late 90s - great boot that held up well traversing the swamps and trails of The UP...down to the most southern regions of Mexico...the fit and look improved w/age. Bought my last pair a few years ago and after one trip to the Rocky Mountain National Park ...left the leather shredded and beyond repair. Meh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots even though they aren't made in Italy Love them haven't really gotten them broken in yet! But this is my 8th pair of the sundowners and they are great boots for everyday work or those backpacking trips! Wouldn't wear them if it was raining the whole day as my feet tend to get a little wet! But other than that great boot

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THANK YOU VASQUE! I have been wearing Vasque boots since I mowed grass all summer long to buy a pair of Montanas back in 1983. My last pair of Sundowners was bought about 4 years ago and my first experience with the Chinese boot. I was very saddly dissapointed with the fit and feel of them. I didn't wear them long enough to have any damages as they just weren't comfortable. I then got a pair of Clarion GTX's They were completely differen't from the Clarions I had in the 90's but have nontheless been a good and comforable boot. When I found out about the "Re-Boot" of the Sundowner I IMEDIATELY bought a pair. After 2 and a half weeks of everyday wear the are breaking in nicely! AAAAAHHHH!!! My old friends are back! Although they are constructed in Vietnam, the leather is good ole' American Red Wing, and it shows! Thank you so much Vasque! Now is there any chance you will bring back the Skywalks? As I live in the Deep South a fabric and leather boot is better in the Summer time, but at anyrate I am THRILLED with the new Sundowners!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's all I wear. I purchased my first pair of Sundowners to use specifically for backpacking back in 1994. They quickly became my everyday shoe and continue to be 22 years later. Unless I am wearing a business suit or swim trunks, you will find Vasque Sundowners on my feet.

What model this sundowner, looks descent? (can you tell me more about this shoe,  like where was made)?

Asked by: Batman
Hey there, Thanks for the question. These boots are the 2015 model and are made in Vietnam. These would be ideal for trail hiking in dry or wet conditions, thanks to the Gore-Tex treatment on the outer shoe.
