User Review: Vasque Men's Wasatch GTX
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $180
Comfortable, but not durable..
- Comfortable for high arch foot
- Poor traction
- Soles failed at 1 year
These boots fit my foot well (very high arch, wide foot, somewhat narrow heel). Boots were mildly stiff when new, but nothing uncomfortable. Leather softened up after a few hours of wear.
Traction on these boots was not great, but acceptable. The real issue was the sole cracking at the ball of the foot (both boots on the same hike) just more than one year after original purchase. Fortunately, REI stands behind the product they sell and I received a refund since I really did not see any reason to buy this boot again. I am not a hardcore hiker so these boots probably had less than 100 miles on them.
These boots replaced Asolo Fugitive boots that were far superior overall, but my feet have changed and the Asolo wide boots are now too narrow in the toe box to be comfortable.
