I got exactly what I expected. The shoes quality is excellent. I like the composite toe, since I will use these for work shoes. They are also light weight.
For the money this is a great shoe. It is slightly narrow, but a comfortable shoe with solid sole.
This is my third pair of the Vasque Grand Traverse and they are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned.
I wear them for light hiking and everyday use. They have been with me to France, Amsterdam and Japan and I have put many miles on them, highly recommended.
