Reviews

I put these on and basically walked 500 km in Spain and was one of the few who didn't have a blister. They are amazingly ocmfortable and sturdy. However I did have leakage and suspect that the Gore-tex is faulty and I will ask Vasque to replace. But comfort-wise they are amazing.

Materials: Gore-tex and nubuck
Use: Camino de Santiago Compostela in Spain, 30 km a day
