Vasque Clarion GTX

I've worn Vasque in the past, probably for the last 10 years or so. These are the lightest Vasque boots I've purchased and when I took them out of the box really thought they would be too light (I thought I preferred all leather). These boots felt very different than the all leather boots of which I was familiar, but took little break in and I wore them hunting a couple weeks after receiving them (I have "heavy duty" hunting boots I normally wear). They felt great. I took them hunting again the next weekend and again they felt great. They are light, but seem to hold up really well. I wear them everyday, as my casual footwear, and have come to realize on the weekends when maybe I'd be putting them through a bit more work they stand up to it. I've only owned them a month or two, but so far I'm impressed. I gave them a 4, based on my limited experience with them. I keep expecting them to start breaking down a bit with harder use, but they don't. We'll see in a year if they're still holding together (I wear them 6 - 7 days a week). If their initial quality is any indication, I think they'll still be my everyday and hunting boots. Also, ordering from this site (my first time) went really smooth and I received exactly what I ordered in a reasonable amount of time. I will order from this place again.
