User Review: Vasque Apex
Use: mountaineering, heavy backpacking
Break-in Period: two weeks
Weight: a couple of pounds
Price Paid: $60
I bought these boots for mountaineering, and they worked great. Great support, great traction, and very waterproof. I have had them for close to three years, and they still look and work like new. The sole has hardly worn down at all, over constant use in the alpine zone. Work great with step-in's, and they are the perfect stiffness for vertical ice. All in all, a well-rounded boot.
