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 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 1 out of 5 by from DISSAPOINTED The first pair I purchased 13 years ago were fantastic, however the recently purchased pair are horrible.. Not sure if I got a bad batch if that's even possible but im disappointed....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fourth pair of Sundowners! Horray! Got a pair of Sundowners from my wife for Xmas. This will be my fourth pair. Been everywhere from Big Bend NP to Russia, and hold up great. I'm VERY happy you went back to the original style and construction, glad you are using the Red Wing leather, and have gone back to the original higher heel, and the sole with the heel ramp as opposed to the Chinese built model with the flat sole and the shorter Achilles tendon area with that awful skimpy leather. I'm attaching a picture of my beautiful new sundowners, and the pair they are replacing. They lasted for about five years, but you can see the leather around the ankle and tongue just plain wore through, I definitely prefer the return to the original design. However the new boots look just like the Italian made ones I remember fondly! I'm sure they will be great on the trail. Cheers and Happy Holidays.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not like the old ones Very stiff leather. Runs about a half size small and are very narrow. Despite what they say these are nothing like the old ones made in Italy.

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 1 out of 5 by from Nearly impossible to break in I want to love these boots; I've heard nothing but good things about them, and I spent a lot of money for them. I've had these boots for three weeks, and have worn them every day. I am just now finally at the point where the pain isn't so bad I have to take them off. They have scraped and bruised my left ankle and the tops of both ankles so bad I'm at my wits end. I bought the Hawthorne leather, and it looks and feels like saddle leather. They creak and moan when I walk, and I despair that I will ever actually be able to hike in these boots. Maybe I just got a pair from a defective batch, but buying these Sundowners is one of the biggest mistakes I've ever made.

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.

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.

I am wondering how the sizing of the men's Sundowner compares to the women's. I'd like the black color, which is not available in the women's. If I am an 8.5--9 in the women's Sundowner am I an 8 in the mens? Or 7.5? Is the width of the sole similar?

Asked by: sunshinecolorado
Thanks for the question! Women's boot size 8.5 = Men's boot size 7. Women's boot size 9 = Men's 7.5. The Men's version does weigh 9 ounces more, so I would say that the width will definitely be greater. The only information I have on the width measurements is that they are "Standard". Keep in mind that the thickness of your socks will also be a factor. Hope this helps a little!

Asked by: Tia22
Thanks for reaching out to us. This shoe will have the same length size. The only difference in between the sizes is that the width of the wide will be a a few centimeters wider depending on the size you are needing. I hope this helps.
