Bryan M.wrote a review of Vasque Wasatch GTX Backpacking Boot - Men's on May 3, 2011
I had a pair of these before that lasted 8 years. I don't do big mountain climbing, but I live around 7500 feet in elevation and twice a day walk dogs around the golf course and other areas that are generally snowy and mucky 6 months a year. After the great use I got on the initial pair I'm disappointed to report that both soles have cracked completely through in less than 8 months. Obviously they have changed their product and quality isn't what they are after any more.
If you need something that will last for more than a year - you need to look elsewhere
