These boots were made for walkin'....
I am currently thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail, southbound. As boots are my means of transportation, I took my shopping very seriously.
My last pair of boots were made by Vasque, and they fit my feet much better than the Asolo and Zamberlain boots I tried on. They required basically no break-in time, though I have had problems with them rubbing my pinky toe, and my heels when they're wet.
Overall, I have been very satisfied with these boots, despite their current condition. As long as water doesn't enter from the top, they stay relatively dry (sweaty feet make them a tad moist naturally). If they do get wet, they take forever to dry. I hiked through Maine post Hurricane Irene, and had wet feet for the entire state. I have put 1,000 miles on them, and they are at the end of their usefulness. I've a 2 1/2'' crack on the ball of my foot, had my first piece of tread rip off, and now have water leaking into my boots. For the terrain and mileage I've put them through, I'm still pleased with them and plan on replacing them with the same boot.
I would definitely suggest this boot to anyone.
