by fromPoorly constructed These boots were comfortable right out of the box and required no break-in time. Unfortunately, they are not well made. The heel shank in my first pair came out and began poking my heel so I returned them after only a few months. I thought it might be just that pair so bought another pair because I liked the fit, but the plastic toe support came out and poked my toes after a year. While looking for new boots at REI I noticed that the model shoe for this boot had some stitching issues in the tongue. Vasques are now made in China and as a result are cheaply made.

by fromBad choice I returned my boots after hiking 3 or 4 14ers in Colorado. They are not waterproof, in fact my socks got wet with just a little bit of rain! And I had waterproofed them with spray the day before! Amazing... They have no ankle support. Also, they gave me blisters, which has never happened to me with any other boots. I think the problem is that they are made in China and the quality is really poor. I will never buy a pair of Vasque boots. Intead I bought a pair of La Sportiva, hopefully they will be water resistant.

by fromSoles Split I had one pair that I loved for 5-6 months then both soles cracked all the way across. Got another pair here I am 5 months later busted again. Will not go with this brand again. Seems they have a problem with the rubber not being quality or something.

by fromThese boots just aren't for everybody... I really, really wanted to love these boots but, unfortunately, they are just not for me. I had bought a pair and took them snow camping/hiking for a long weekend. I noticed a very cold, wet feeling on my left foot the second I hit the snow. I wanted it to be sweat but after 3 days knew the boot was leaking in a bad way. I am well aware that there is no such thing as a fully waterproof boot but this wasn't just a little seepage. I returned them to REI and exchanged them for a new pair. The new pair was leak proof but after their first hike, they have a slit from the sole up to the laces! I don't remember stepping on a knife but that's certainly what it looks like. While my hike was only 4 miles, it was a good amount of bush whacking, a little tree climbing, a little spelunking, and some good rock scrambling. This is what I would call a moderate hike but I guess not everyone does this. For the price, and the intended purpose, the boots should have been able to handle that and a whole lot more. I just don't think these particular boots were meant for off trail adventures. On the positive side, there are a lot of good things to be said for these boots. They are very, very comfortable out of the box, warm, and waterproof. The toe guard, "grippiness" of the sole, and ankle support are exceptional. It was amazing bushwhacking my way up these steep, snow covered hills and having my feet just grip like velcro. Hopping through an icy stream and still having dry feet on the other side is awesome. I just can't accept that there's a 4-in. cut from sole to top in my boot after one excursion like this. If you don't plan on leaving the trail or hiking in rocky terrain these are some really good boots. If you even have an inkling that you'll be bushwhacking or if you live in Pennsylvania, do not buy these.

by fromComfortable boot but DOES NOT last! Went through 2 pairs! Both had the same issue--rubber separated from toes. This happened sooner on the second pair (after a 3-day backpacking trip). Wide toe box is very comfortable and there was NO break-in.

by fromKind of Disappointed I had really high hopes for these boots. The break-in time took forever(2 months of near daily wear), but once they were broken in they were very comfortable. I purchased them for a 3 day, 25 mile hike along the northern California coast. When we set camp the first night, I noticed that the soles looked like they were trying to crack. By the end of the trip 2 days later, there were huge cracks in the soles that went all the way to the footbed of the boot. I was extremely disappointed. Boots like this should hold up to a 25 mile trip, especially if they are under 6 months old.

by fromSupportive - not much else Got these boots for more complete foot support (I have some Merrill hiking/walking shoes already). They do have good foot support (sole and shank) and the boot is much better for my ankles on uneven terrain, but the only comfortable part is around the ankle bones. Everything else is pretty minimal for comfort. Also, the tongue has wrinkles in it that are very uncomfortable on the top of feet, unless you really work at spreading them out before you lace up. My first hike in them was about 5 miles and 1,000 ft gain. Got a huge blister above one of my heals where the back seam rubbed. I could wear more socks, but that is not the idea behind getting a better pair of boots. The low arch support comment is due to my having high arches - I always add arch support as no shoes or boots are even made with enough support.

by fromGreat boot... until the soles split! I had these for less than two years when the soles split horizontally. After that it was impossible to use them in the rain or snow. I'd taken then on several backpacking trips and used them for outdoor work, but also took very good care of the leather. Since both soles split I think its a design flaw and not a fluke. Anyway, I bought these because they seemed like solid leather boots that would last for years, and until they split they were comfy, waterproof, and otherwise durable. Next time I'll spend the money to get something not made in China!
