I have an old pair of Vasque Alpha GTX. Their sole is too flexible for my feet now as you can bend the toe too easily. How stiff of sole is the St. Elias boot?
I was just about to purchase these (size 8 wide) with my coupon, but I noticed people saying that even the wides run narrow. Is that true for everyone? Can they be stretched out as some people have mentioned?
Are the Vasque St. Elias gtx comparable with crampons ?
I am heading to do the Inca Trail (4 day hike trip) and have been advised to bring light hiking boots. In your opinion will these booths be too heavy?
Are these boots 100% waterproof? Or has the leather been treated to be waterproof?
I recently bought these and I am finding that they are pinching my pinky toes. I am uncertain as to whether they will stretch out. My pinky toes were quite red after a half-day hike. Will they stretch? Or, should I return and try for a wide?
Would these boots make good sturdy work boots for working on a conservation crew?
I have these boots and have bunions. It is very painful to wear them. I have sized up and wear med weight smart wool socks. I did not get the wide size. Is there something I can do to make the ones I have more comfortable or should I get wide?
