2 years later: I'm still using the same pair of boots I originally purchased and I have grown to love them even more. I have put these things through hell and haven't done any maintenance or upkeep on them. They are extremely robust and I'm amazed at how well the gortex has held up. On top of all this, I really like they way they look and feel on my feet. I will never buy another pair of hiking boots so long as Vasque continues to make this product. I really can't recommend them highly enough.
I've been wearing a 10.5 which is the same size as my nike running shoe.
3.5 years later: I have finally replaced the original shoelaces after they self destructed. It was over the course of weeks, so I wouldn't be overly worried about needing to replace a lace on the trail (some rhyming!). I've finally started to clean and polish the boots because the leather was beginning to dry and crack. At this point, these boots are so well worn in that I want to keep them forever. After cleaning them, they still look great; and I have a feeling they will be lasting for quite some time more. I'll be back to update next year! - Also, looking back I commented on the integrity of the gortex - I can't say that I've had any problems in the last few years.Read more ›
I go through a pair a year because I wear them every day, I wear out the bottom of the boot and have to get new ones. The one exception to that is I always have two pair, since they are nubuck leather they get a bit trashing looking after I use them for logging and my wife won't let me wear them in public so I have one work pair and one everyday pair. I do logging and split about 100 cords a year and I hike a great deal and last year I got into snowshoeing. This week I have done over 10 miles of snowshoeing.
I first bought this boot in Maine when I went to hike Cadillac Mountain in Acadia national park. The salesman at Cadillac mountain sports really knew his stuff. He asked are you going to wear them today and I explained I was going to start a 3 day hike that day.
IMPPORTANT NOTE: I added an insole on top of the existing foot bed
The salesman told me to buy the Vasque GTX and to upsize it by ½ a shoe size, then add an insole (made by a company Superfeet only use the blue insole not the green ones) Superfeet® Active Insoleson top of the existing foot bed. Do not remove the existing foot bed; just put the new one on top of it. I wear a 9.5 shoe so I got a size 10 boot. I used a Superfeet blue size E insole. SPECIAL NOTE: this works for me and my setup, but some people have had problems with the insole cutting into the goretex, this has never happened to me an I don't trim the foot I just put it in. If this is an issue or concern Superfeet has retailers that can make a custom insoles that will solve the problem, but I would just try the off the shelf product first.
This is the most comfortable setup I have ever had.Read more ›
One of the reasons I was so hesitant to buy this boot was that it didn't have Vibram Soles. I know Skywalk soles are pretty trusted, and that a lot of boot makers (like Scarpa) have used them to great effect, but still I worried. Now it seems like a piddly concern. They grip every bit as well as the Vibram soles on my other boots. I have a pair of Dannet ML2's and a pair of Scarpa SL M3's, and I honestly feel much more confident in these boots than in those.
Another reason I was hesitant about these is that they don't have full leather uppers (for ankle support while carrying heavy weights). But I have no problem caring loads of up to 35 lbs in these (I haven't gone higher). The boot is also great for day-hikes. It's one of the few boots (along with the much more expensive Danner ML2) that equally good for day hiking and backpacking.
One thing that you should know about these boots is that they run big, both in width and length. They have much more toe room than my Danner ML2's and WAY more toe room than my Sacrpas (which is a wide width). However, I had to order a full size down from my normal size (15) because I had WAY too much extra room in the toe.Read more ›
