Excellent pair of backpacking boots, though the air circulation isn't as good as I expected. The traction of the tread on these boots is astonishing on everything I've dared to trek thus far, like something from a comic book (in a good way). The Inhaler II's are very light weight and have a lot of cushion. Love the waterproof membrane as well. I deducted one star because the toe area is quite small, though I could correct this by loosening the laces enough for my feet I do not believe everyone would be able to do the same, it's definitely a smaller than average toe space. Also, don't believe those who say they do not have a break-in period, YOU MUST BREAK THEM IN. I would (and have) recommended Vasque's Inhaler II's for a hiking/backpacking boot.
Have only hiked in these boots a handful of times. They are very lightweight and airy. The only problem I find is that the inside lining is very slippery and my foot tends to move. The shoe is a tad bit tight and with the moving action I ended up with blisters. I have to really tie these tight to prevent the movement. Will have to try with different socks; was using cotton sport socks. Had better luck with Vasque boots I purchased in the past.
Right now I can't recommend these.
My daughter works at an outdoors store and has the female version of these so I ordered a pair for myself. I normally wear an 9.5 and she said to order 1/2 size larger as that is how they fit them at their store and she was spot on. The 10 I ordered fit great with the thicker hiking socks I wear. The does are crazy light weight and did not really need a break in period.
