    • 5 out of 5 I boot my first and only pair of Vasque Sundowners from REI in 1990. Have been all over the country, high and low. This pair of boots have been resoled once and reconditioned leather once. Awesome boot. Italian made. I pray I never have to try to replace them, as they are now made in China and I have heard, do not hold up. If you can find a pair of "old" Vasque Sundowners, then you might do better than to buy new ones. It is so sad that we can't keep quality over the years, but the Italian made Vasque Sundowner is awesome!

    • 3 out of 5 I began wearing this model when it was first introduced. It had always been sturdy, comfortable and dependable. Last summer I purchased my 16th pair. They lasted about 10 days. The speed lace eyelets pulled out. So this pair I just purchased (2 weeks ago) are being evaluated. Boots are comfortable as ever, but can I depend on them in the deep woods?

    • 1 out of 5 I bought this boot in the late 80's made in Italy. I still have the original boot in fact I bought another a few years later(made in Italy) and still wear those. Through the years I have worn out several soles a good estimate 3 soles each pair, they were so comfortable I preferred them over sneakers. I had bought the Sundowner GTX about 7 years ago unfortunately the do not compare at all, they are made in china. They don't fit correctly, the leather is too stiff, they won't conform to your foot and the leather cracks. I still wear the old sundowners.

    • 1 out of 5 About 22 years ago I bought a pair of Vasque boots. One piece leather uppers and Gore-tex. I dont what you call them, I guess "Sundowners"? It was a medium-hiking boot. Very nice. Wore them for about 15 years. Only one sole change. The leather aged into a beautiful patina, like old saddle leather or a high quality first-base mitt from the 1920s, sort of burgundy. I hiked all over the Angeleus Crest, the San Gabes, the eastern and western Sierras, the SoCal , Arizona and Utah deserts with those. I even took them on the San Fransisco Rip Rap breakwaters looking for salvage. Best boots I ever had. I used to get compliments on those boots. From hippies. From climbers. From hikers. From bikers. From relatives. One young lady in a bikini in Playa Del Rey told me they were, "sexy". Then one day...they wore out, and my foot was also about a half-size bigger. I wanted to buy the same kind but was disappointed they were discontinued. I mean, they had sundowner GTX, but the profile was different. I bought some anyway. My original boots were made in Italy. These new ones were from China. I got them and the leather was different, somewhat cheaper, not prepared correctly. The feel was different too. I called the guy I mail-ordered them from and told him. It was in Minnesota some place, a Red Wing distributor. He sounded all forlorn and said they were getting several returns from buyers because the Sundowners were no longer made in Italy, and the had a "different" feel. I felt sorry for the guy so I said, "I'll keep them...I'll give them a try". Which I did, for about 5 years. The leather was indeed different. It was cheap and it did not age into a nice patina. They became scratched , the leather rubbed off and became super dull, they looked like split leather within a month. The old boots took about 2 days to conform to the exact shape of my foot, the new ones, after 5 years, never did. Within 5 months, the soles started peeling. About a year ago, the sole on the right started flapping, which I fixed with Shoe-Goo. Then yesterday, I went into the Mojave with a prospector friend, and BOTH soles started flapping. Very embarrassing. The prospector, a Yosemite Sam-type, started cackling like Walter Houston in "Treasure Sierra Madre". 5 year old boots! Its a good thing I had some hockey tape in my back pack. Thank God for hockey tape. But you can be sure...I will never ever buy Vasque boots again. Dont get me wrong, I'm no nativist or super-American-China-hater dude. I know you guys have economic problems and are just trying to make a living and keep hundreds of folks employed. But I would have paid up to a hundred bucks more just to get the original quality Italian goods.

    • 5 out of 5 ANY boot that can hold up for more than 10 years earns its place as an elite boot. I've had the same pair since 1994. Still comfortable during long periods on foot, 8+ hours. The sole still has great tread and no cracks. The only thing that has suffered is the leather upper which has endured dog fights (play), rock slides, oil, rain, mud, alcohol, syrup, spit, and much more. My boots have weathered the decks of Navy ships and the deserts of the middle east to the lava plains of Iceland. This boot is a classic that I hope will be around by the time I'm ready to get another pair. The only thing I miss is the contrasting stitches that the Italian Sundowners had. Please bring that back! Then they would be ultra stylish too! I'm serious, bring back the off white stitching. It looks WAY better and adds a subtle richness to an already outstanding and special boot. Dare I say an Icon?

    • 5 out of 5 These are fantastic boots. I wore mine to do a couple of 14ers in CO recently. They performed extremely well. Durability, comfort, and the classic styling that I love. This is a boot that I will continue to buy as long as Vasque makes them.

    • 5 out of 5 I've owned a pair of Vasque since 1993. My only concern was when the company started making the boot in China. If you keep the leather conditioned you may own the same pair for 10 years like I did on my first pair. I am now on my third pair of Sundowners. Pleas Vasque, never change this style. The style is classic and forever Vasque. Thanks for the quality. I guess every company has to cut costs. Chinese or not, the boot still rocks.

    About Vasque

    Vasque collage While traveling through the European continent in the mid-1960s, William Sweasy realized that the backpacking and hiking craze that had hit there would soon make its way to the United States. Focusing on the path that lay ahead, Sweasy quickly began developing a line of quality mountaineering and hiking boots. His preparation was not in vain. With an extensive selection of men’s and women’s hiking footwear, dedicated nature explorers will find styles tailored for their specific activities. Vasque has come far from its first boot, the Voyageur, and continuously challenges hikers to step out into the next big outdoor adventure.
