I have to agree with vince on some aspects of his review. I just bought the boots the other day and was surprised to find out that I was fitted for a narrow in this boot and in any other boot or shoe I wear a Medium D width.
I was a bit appalled to find that Vasque had started producing their boots in China. On the right boot I noticed that the stitching on the top of the tongue that holds the gore-tex liner with the tongue is started to come unraveled. All in all though they're a damn nice boot, a bit snug in the achilles tendon area but I have a good cobbler that can stretch them out for me.
I have always been a big fan of Vasque footwear but am leery now to buy another pair knowing that they're manufactured in China, when you do purchase a pair of Vasque boots make sure to look at the stitching very closely.
