    I used these boots for about 10-15 hikes of about 10 miles each and they were very comfortable boots or so I thought. I really loved them at first.

    Then quite suddenly the right and left boot developed a split across the ball of the foot. The right boot then literally fell apart underneath me. The leather uppers show almost no wear at all and the Vibram soles are less than half worn.

    Vasque told me I was out of warranty so I should try the store (the hikes were over a 14 month period). I was very disappointed in their attitude overall.

    I'm only sorry now that I recommended these to several of my hiking friends. The soft rubber under the sole makes them very comfortable boots but in my opinion it also causes the Vibram sole to split after it weakens at which point the end of the entire boot comes swiftly.

    IMO, some of the "glowing reviews" here of these boots were done by well intentioned people who have likely done a few less miles in them than I have. Check out my photos of the boots that accompany this same review on other websites.

    If you want boots that will last choose something else. Bob.

    The Wasatch GTX is generally a pretty good boot. They are comfortable and maintain good support on the trail.
    Generally they have held up pretty well in the two plus years that I have owned mine, but they have developed cracks where the rubber toe cap meets the upper near the sole* that will soon render them useless once the GTX liner is exposed. This happened WAY too quickly for a (nearly) two hundred dollar boot. It's sad, because other than this detail, the boots were pretty good. *I should note that this is NOT something that regularly happens with boots
    that I wear due to sizing or foot anomalies.

    The Vasque Wasatch lives up to its reputation for unusual out of the box comfort. I took a brand new pair on a hard hike and rock scramble last weekend with no blisters or other problems.

    The boots managed to stay completely dry even though recent rains had transformed the trails into small brooks.

    Be aware that the Wasatch is a little on the heavy side for a day hiker. On the plus side, that heaviness translates into superior ankle support. The quality of the leather uppers appears to be a big step up over boots costing a little less. Also appreciated is the fact that the soles are softer and stick better to bare rock than is usual for a heavier boot.

    The claim that the boot runs true to size is probably correct, but also a little bit odd because no one will buy these to wear with thin dress socks on sidewalks. Thick hiking socks will add roughly one-half size, and a hiking boot should also be sized with extra space at the toe. The bottom line is that my size (United States) in a dress shoe is 10.5 wide, while my best fit in the Vasque Wasatch was 11.5 medium.

    Don't buy these boots. I've had two pair, and the soles cracked prematurely at the ball of the foot. In each case, the boot still had at least 80% tread remaining, and the uppers were still in excellent condition. This is a comfortable, waterproof boot that will barely last one season of light use. Do not buy it.

    I bought a pair of these in October of 2010 (The last pair I had lasted around 4 years before the mid-sole started to fall apart). I noticed a huge crack in the sole across the ball of my right foot. I contacted Vasque today and they gave me the exact same responce mentioned already in the reviews here at Amazon... Sorry, we have a strict 1 year warranty, blah blah blah. Everything besides the sole is in perfect condition, so now I have a useless 140 dollar great looking paperweight.... So sad that a hiking boot this nice has such a major flaw, make that two flaws, bad soles and bad customer support.

    I purchased these for my husband, who has always worn vasque with no issues, for his birthday. He wore them around the garage and backyard putsying along and never had the chance to hike in them before they fell apart (3-4 month period). We are very disappointed with Vasque. I don't know if we received a bad batch, I have the women's version and have yet to have a problem. Amazon only warranties for 30 days and good luck trying to get ahold of anyone at vasque.

    I've had my pair for two seasons. They have about 200 miles on them, maybe a bit more. The soles split on the left and are starting to split on the right. The soles seem to be made with three layers. It's the middle, more rigid layer that split. I bought mine at REI. I hope they will help me out with a refund or partial refund.

    I must admit I was surprised to read some of the negative reviews of this boot. Sounds like a fair number of people have had trouble with the soles in particular (and I would be very disappointed, too, if I had that sort of problem).

    But, I'm on my second pair and neither of them had this problem. I live in Arizona and do quite a bit of hiking (I'd say at least 20 5-15 mile hikes per year), and on some pretty rough/rocky terrain, too.

    My first pair lasted 4 years including multiple day trips to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and back. The soles did eventually wear out and there was some minor cracking toward the end, but nothing unexpected given the amount of hiking I do or the type of terrain I do it on.

    So, I was happy to get another pair about 1.5 years ago. If anything, I've done more and more intense hiking with this pair (including a 45 mile rim-to-rim-to-rim hike at the Grand Canyon -- one day each way with a one day rest in between). I've also hiked to the bottom and back to the top of the south rim of the Grand Canyon at least three other times with this pair, plus lots of hikes in the Superstition Mountains and elsewhere. And, so far I've had no problems with this pair either (and I expect them to last at least another couple of years).

    On top of that, I very rarely get blisters, and when I do it is only toward the end of a very long 15-20 mile hike (anything up to 10-12 miles per day has never been a problem). And, on the very rare occasion that I do get a blister it is never a big/bad blister that affects hiking, needs to be popped (i.e., it usually goes away by itself fairly quickly), or anything like that.
