User Review: Vasque Men's Wasatch GTX
Materials: leather, gore-tex, Vibram
Price Paid: $140
I purchased a pair of these boots in December 2007 and have worn them for somewhere around a thousand miles in the back country of western Montana.
Until recently I thought they were the greatest boots ever made. However, a week ago while checking my gear in preparation for a rather aggressive hike, I found that there was a catastrophic failure of the sole of the left boot: it had cracked completely across, making the boot unusable. I was happy only that I found it before committing to the hike where the results could have been very serious.
Using the "contact us" information on the Vasque website, I sent them an email complete with photos of the failed boot. They have made no response at all.
After having this type of experience with Vasque, I would not recommend the purchase of any Vasque product because they have a quality and reliability problem that they will not acknowledge or address.
