soles split across the ball (two pairs)

the soles split across the ball on both feet after maybe 250 miles of sidewalk in a year. vasque replaced them after they saw the photos. I'm about 9 months into the second pair and the same thing is happening. I weigh 180 and wear size 12.

don't buy them unless you just want to display them on your mantel.

Same issue here. I've had these boots for about 4 years, but I ONLY wear them for backpacking (1x or 2x a year, for a week) and the occasional low-weight day hike. I NEVER wear them "around town". OK, I'm a big guy (275) and I carry 50 pounds on my back but still.....the same crack. The left foot is cracked almost completely through, the right foot is just developing. I tried gluing mine back together last night with Gorilla glue...we'll see. I won't hold my breath. My last boots, an inexpensive pair of Hi-Tec's lasted for 10+ years.

The gorilla glue didn't work.... neither did "Shoe Goo". I'm afraid these things are toast.
