My Vasque boots I had for the last 6 years have finally come to an end. While out Archery Elk hunting this weekend both soles have separated from the actual boot. The strange part is both boots had the same sypmtoms. It almost seems the glue has failed or something. I am not sure if they have a warranty or not.
My question is: What are the best boots for hunting in Western states. I am looking for something that can handle long hikes, Rugged mountain terrain and still keep feet warm and dry. I don't plan on sitting much so nothing bulky.
I have been reading about the Lowa Tibets and like the Danner Highcountries. The Tibets are pretty pricey, what makes then so good? I am looking for feedback and suggestions.
