After several years of great hiking with my Vasque boots, it’s time to retire them for a new pair. I’ve spent the last several days researching a new pair, paying special attention to boots that have a great deal of ankle support due to the fact that my ankles at this point are shot. Normal every day hiking boots won’t help me now, so I have to get some good backpacking boots.
Out with the old….
And in with the new….
I have been hiking in Vasque boots for the better part of 20 years now and I have found them to be incredibly good boots. This new pair appear to be much lighter than my old ones and the young man who helped me at Campmor said that the technology has advanced to the point where a good pair of backpacking boots don’t have to weigh 10 pounds!!!!
I’ll be heading to some familiar trails by the Anthony Wayne parking area to start breaking them in later to get a feel for how they do.
Stay tuned for the first hike write-up of the summer!!!!
