The Men's Juxt Shoe by Vasque. Is it possible to be a pragmatist and idealist at the same time? While being comfortable enough to live in every day, this shoe's secure lacing and tenacious sticky rubber sole inspires plans into the unknown.

"good shoes, but bad laces and bad customer service from Vasque"
I am happy with these shoes. They are comfortable and fit my narrow feet well. However I am not happy with the customer service from Vasque. After a very short time, both laces broke (within a week of each other) so I called Vasque to see if they have a solution. Basically they said too bad, they couldn't help me. It is not that I was particularly upset that the laces broke prematurely, but for shoes that cost over $100 I expect that the manufacturer would be willing to figure out a solution - or even a thankyou for letting them know there were quality control problems with the laces.
I'm on my second pair of Vasque Justes, size 9. The first pair lasted almost a year of constant use (from trails to office to nice restaurants and back) before they got tired. Just got back from 10 days of pavement pounding in Rome (if you've ever been there you know how walkable a city it is) which meant about 50 hard surface miles + all that walking around the museums, the Vatican, the palaces, the parks, etc.. Great support but very light weight, and at least vaguely stylish (well, not so stylish in Rome). Nary a peep from the feets. Easily the most comfortable walking / hiking shoe I own, I'd wear it every day and usually do.
A great shoe for sure, the lace system is super easy to work, the shoes are moderately water repellant, and fairly warm. They're a great shoe for people with big feet and moderately wide feet. It's super comfy and is useful for just about anything. I recommend it and it's a little cheaper than most shoes so it's a solid investment. They will last for a long time.
Great shoes so far! Extremely comfortable and not to mention they look great! They seem true to size. I wear 13 and the 13 in these fit perfectly. I've yet to wear them hiking, but I have wore them casually and through a few rounds of disc golf and so far so good! Loving these shoes, so far!!!!!!!!
"Great pair of shoes for the over 13 crowd."
I wouldn't have thought finding a good pair of shoes would be this difficult. Not a lot of places (EMS et al) locally carry sizes 13 and up. Got lucky with this shoe. They must run a little big because I fit in the 13 fine and generally wear 13.5 and up. Very comfortable right out of the box. Lacing config keeps my feet nicely in place. Not my first pair of Vasque, certainly not the last. I'm going to look for more 13s now. And girls dig them (could be the 13+, who knows).
