User Review: Vasque Apex
Use: Rough trail/light mountaineering
Break-in Period: eternity
Weight: 4 lbs.
Price Paid: $205
I bought these boots planning to use them for heavy backpacking in the Rockies. After six months of constant use I still get blisters.
The boots are very waterproof, sturdy, and their Vibram soles give great grip on any terrain - but, if you plan to walk epic distances, your feet will feel like hamburger. I am currently trying to appeal to Vasque to resolve this dilemma. Generally I have had good luck with their boots, but do not recommend these to anyone except light alpinists.
P.S. I am considering One Sport's new norwegian welted boot, the Mazama. If anyone has information on it, please post it on the review board.
