I am excited to see you next week. After we finish working on TechEd (TechEdEvents.org), I think it is going to be a nice relaxing day hiking Point Reyes.
I need to get my boots soon so I can test them and ensure that their are no hot spots. I am considering a couple different styles of Vasque boots. Many reviewers have raved about Vasque with the only drawback being that they are now made in China.
Specifically, I am considering the Vasque 7152 Sundowner Summit GTX Backpacking Boots. These are a great all-around boot, it has the ankle support I need, is made of leather, fully waterproof and a quality boot.
Question is, in July is this the best boot? It is not going to breath well, but it is going to last. What do you think?
