I did a lot of research before buying the Erikssons. I have wide feet (not just a little such that a shoe that "runs wide" is an adequate solution), a noticeable protrusion of my right big toe knuckle due to arthritis, and neuropathy-- oh, and a week ankle from a couple of pretty back injuries in my youth--a lot to attempt to overcome! In addition, i have not been a lifelong hiker, so A) I have less history to guide me, and B), I'm a bit if a tenderfoot when it comes to blisters and such. So when we decided to do some semi-serious day hiking in Oak Creek Canyon between Sedona and Flagstaff coming up in March (2015), I decided to try to avoid trip-spoiling foot problems with a pretty serious upgrade in footwear. I looked closely at Outdoor Gear Lab and a plethora of other blogs and sites, vids, etc. Some of my options were limited by the availability of wide sizes. I also required that they be waterproof. But fortunately many of the best options were available in wide. The...
This is the 5th pair of Vasque hiking boots I've owned. As a field geophysicist and avid hiker, I expect a lot from my boots, ...in fact, I beat the hell out of them. Vasques have never disappointed in terms of comfort (no breaking-in required), or water-proofness. However their endurance leaves A LOT to be desired. Of the 5 pairs I've had, 3 have begun to fail early on in their life cycle. The soles of my first pair started breaking apart after a week (chunks fell out of the soles of both boots, in exactly the same place). The replacement pair went through a constant hell, but lasted a solid two years (which is more than I expected, considering what they went through). The third pair lasted about the same, two years; the fourth pair only made it about 6 months, and the fifth pair is falling apart after only two months. I'll be looking for another name after this.
I bought this after reading about it in Popular Mechanics magazine as being a sturdy but comforatable backpacking boot.
Got it on Tuesday and did a short 5+ mile hike this weekend, to start breaking in the boot. Very comfortable right out of the box, no hot spots or issue. The hike started on a mountain top had a short climb up some rocky trails and decended on a very steep, muddy and slippery trail to the valley below.
The Eriksson had decent grip and keep my feet dry and very comfortable with good ankle support. My feet were not hot and sweaty as I thought they would be in a full leather upper boot and temperatures in the upper eighties with high humidity.
I bought the boot wide and a half size larger than my normal to accommodate a Sole brand insole and thick wool sock and a liner sock. Everything fit snuggly but not tight, and my toes, which normally get jammed into the front of the boot on downhill hikes, had good space in the toe box and no...
