User Review: Vasque Skywalk
Use: Rough rocky trail
Break-in Period: Depends, but it can't be more than a week
Price Paid: $100 on sale
I got these boots in Missouri at the Bass Pro Shops in Springfield. The style is the one with the stiff ankle (I guess you can't get them anymore in the states) not the one with the padding around the ankle. Best buy I've ever made. I've hiked the Grand Canyon all the way to the river and back out in a day with these boots and my feet were only slightly sore, no blisters though. They're even good in snow. I suggest you keep them treated to take care of them. The full grain leather holds up really well though I do have one small gash from some sharp edged rocks. The boots are two years old and probably have close to 300 miles on them and they're still in great shape. I doubt I'll ever consider buying another pair.
