        Comments about VASQUE Men's St. Elias GTX Backpacking Boots, Wide:

        Great fitting boot for someone who is looking for a slightly wider boot. Boot is not super wide, but just wide enough, so the fit is more performance oriented. I have a high arch/volume foot, that requires room and cushion. This boot delivers both. Durability appears to be good, but too soon to tell. Amazing support of such a light boot. Very happy.

                Bought these boots for long days on the trails snowshoeing in Vail. Wore them for the first time all day today to break them in. No need to break in these boots. After a full day no problems at all. Originally bought the reg width then traded them in for the Wide version. Not a big difference but the wide was perfect. Will follow up after some long days on the local trails. Feels like I made the perfect choice for me and my wife.

                    Bought this to replace size 10 Lowa Renegades that were too small and tortured my feet during some hikes in GNP and an attempt on the Middle Teton. So far, so good during breakin, wide size 10 seems to fit well with a toe box that is very comfortable so far. No heel lift issues, haven't tested the gtx yet. Plan to use it for hikes in the Catskills and Daks.
