I'm on my second pair of these boots because the soles cracked the first time. The soles are now cracking on my second pair. I bought my first pair almost 1 year ago. So I've worn through 2 pairs in less than a year. The seal on the front toe is also coming apart. I probably walked only 100 miles in this 2nd pair so far. My friend is also on his 3rd pair of these shoes because the soles cracked on him twice. I think Vasque needs to recall this boot and fix the problem.
