Comments about Vasque Summit GTX Boot (Men's):

These Chinese made boots have a wider heel than hikers are used to, as if they think wide means to fit obese people standing around in them. Heel width also makes these extra heavy in the heel. Hikers with wide forefeet have narrow heels. Being lean people with lots of miles on their feet, hikers have wider forefeet but don't have wide heels, or fat feet at all. They're just wider through the joints of the forefoot. In that consideration these are more like a Redwing or Timberland boot and definitely not a Pivetta P5 style ballet slipper snug heel width perfect for hiking in rocky terrain. An Italian name is all that is left of Italian fitment. These feel clunky by comparison. Looseness in the heel will allow the foot to rotate in the shoe making toe blisters, requiring two pairs of thick socks and/or extra padding on the insides of the heels before any long distance hiking, and they're already heavy. Halfway up the tongue is a seam where one wants none, making a big sore blister inducing lump or even two, one on each side of the arch. This accentuates heel movement inside the shoe. I hammered on the tongues over an anvil till I made them flat, no more problem there. But still that's not something you expect to have to do to new boots. I love the tight grained toughness in the Redwing leather uppers. The leather will last twenty years if beeswax is used, and the Vibram sole will last like Vibram does.

    Love these boots! I upgraded from Sundowner classics that lasted 17 years. I'd definitely buy these boots again.
