Heidi's Bio

I make a living tromping around public lands looking for the places people lived thousands of years ago...

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had these boots for two years and wear them daily for fieldwork about 8 months of the year. I have to say that for the price, I am disappointed that they are coming apart. I expected sole wear (most of the tread is nearly gone and there are cracks) but the upper has also given up across the toe box (cracked). If you want a comfortable pair of sturdy boots that you only plan to wear 5 or 6 times a year - these are great. If you happen to want more from your money- spend it on something else.

I. Love. These.

I am a pedestrian in a rural car-centric town where the snowplows throw snow on the sidewalks and no one shovels. I've saved countless dollars in emergency room fees from the traction these babies give me on snow/ice pack. It was a spectacular slip that convinced me to get them (flat on my back in an intersection - pretty!) and I'm glad I did.

I'll bet they're awesome on the trail too.

Details: My size 8 Vasque hiking boot fits nicely into the woman's Small. I was afraid they'd be hard to get on/off when I first saw them in person - but they're not. They stay on and they don't shift (so if you misalign them forget trying to reposition them - take 'em off and start over!) and they come off when you want them too.

They are a little weird on 'dry' surfaces (no snow or ice pack)... someone asked about getting over rocks on the trail - I don't know about that, but on cement side walks it feels like walking on marbles - the spikes need something to bite. The slippery stuff should be at least as deep as the spike for optimal performance (so they're pointless {ha!} if there's just a skiff of snow).

If you want to walk on
