From the manufacturer
The Skywalk GTX logged as many miles in the 1980s as any boot, establishing the benchmark for a mixed upper, lightweight rig. For its contemporary incarnation we start with rough-out, 2.4mm leather, tanned right here in the U.S. We blend that with abrasion-resistant, breathable nylon mesh. The GORE-TEX waterproof-breathable liner manages the Skywalk's internal climbate, while a Vasque Pyrenees sole keeps you firmly on the trail. Old-school meets today's Vasque. ..in the Skywalk GTX.

All in all they have excellent traction, I received many compliments on how they look.
But at the end of the day and broke me down slowly.
I wear size 10.5 in running shoes.
I ordered a size 10.5 in these and the length is perfect. I wear standard wool hiking socks, not super thin athletic ones, or super thick ones.
The width is a little bit narrow in the toes, but I think that's inherent in the design. I haven't had any problems with blisters yet. I would suggest getting the wide version if you want to wear thicker socks or have a wide foot. I think the more I wear these they will stretch a bit, but not much.
The soles have great traction and the waterproofing is excellent, water beads right off.
These are stiffer than light hikers, as would be expected.
Might take some time to work in the area around the heel bone, as it feels a tad tight, but I can tell these are going to be great boots.
I then had the bright idea to wear them ten miles through Pisgah National Forest. On the descent to the crrek basin i was happy. No toe jam and the sole of the boot grips amazingly well even on wet slick granite river rocks. The GoreTex sock kept my feet dry though I dunked almost the entire boot a few times.
It wasn't till I headed up the ridge in the morning that these boots tried to kill me. Every step uphill dug the boot into the skin at the top of my heel. Extra socks, band aids, it didnt matter my heels were shredded. I switched to my Nike fit sole running shoes that i brought for wearing around camp. they were summarily destroyed by the rough trail but at least I didn't have to wear the Vasques. I strapped them to my pack ...and they literally kicked my ass all the way back to the truck.
Lesson I learned is that shoes now are a hell of a lot better than they were. Don't suffer for your art. do what I did and buy a pair of oboz.
