I've owned these for 5 years now. They held up a lot of days on the trail. The soles are finally wearing short so I'll be looking at another pair this coming fall.

The Goretex liner has been excellent at keeping out water. I've used them snowshoeing, hiking, backpacking, and a couple days at work. I have not had any blisters using these,, just a few hot-spots.

These boots rock! With the almost seamless leather construction, Gore-Tex lining, and a wicking lining next to my feet, they stayed dry no matter what. They fit my feet almost out of the box, with minimal break in time.

Also, they replaced another pair of Vasque boots- Sundowners, I think- that were older than I was! They never fit my Dad, but they fit me perfectly. Ever after 16 years, they held up beautifully. You can't go wrong with Vasque.
