JDwrote a review of Vasque Taku GTX Hiking Boot - Men's on October 1, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I don't typically write reviews about anything, but these boots suck so hard I couldn't hold my tongue. I have given these boots every opportunity to impress me, and they fall short every time. I bought these in May of this year and the soul is already falling apart. A huge chunk completely fell off and the toe cap has begun to separate in a number of places. I just did a 23 mile hike in the rain last weekend in the Northwest and I had puddles in both boots while everyone else's feet were dry as a bone. I didn't even step in a puddle more than a couple of inches deep! On top of both of these issues, I find these boots to be straight up uncomfortable. My feet hurt after a hike of any distance and I get hot spots on my feet and ankles from them. I have never had issues with blisters in any other shoe I have owned. I have never owned a pair of Vasque boots before. I had high hopes for these and they completely crapped the bed.
