Why'd they change the design? Have a pair of Clarion GTX - best boots by far I've ever had. Always fit - new and well-used - and broke in very quickly. Great ankle support, nice rigid sole for clambering over big rocks, etc. However... my pair has a Gore-Tex insert over the top of the toes, and a rubber shield over the end of the toe which really takes the abuse and doesn't get marked up. The new design has a solid leather toe and no rubber shield over the toe. The only bad thing was that they tend to get a little slippery on wet tree roots and rocks (as I found out in New Zealand) - I understand that has to do with the compound the sole is molded from. Has anyone had both pairs, and did you find the new ones less breathable and more prone to scuff damage on the toe? How about the compound on the tread - has that changed?

I'm a decades-long fan of Vasque, but they're not fitting the way they used to. This boot, in particular, feels as if the heel has been skewed to the outside of natural foot shape -- it rubs terribly against the inside of my heel while not coming in contact with the outside.

This is my second pair of this boot. When you find something that works great, you stick with it. After a lot of miles on the backpacking trail, my first pair was showing some cracks in the uppers. Probably from all the rainstorms and streams that they carried me through. The boot is so comfortable that you might even compare them to wearing a comfortable running shoe.

I bought these boots to replace a pair of Vasque Clarion boots purchased in 1999 that I had worn out. I was concerned that these would not be the same quality as the pair purchased in the last century. So far, I am loving these (the quality and comfort) as much as my old ones. They do take a little more break in others, but it is worth it. These are not pretty boots that only last a year. I took these on a vacation to British Columbia and they performed great during my hikes.

A great hiking boot for those of us with wide feet. The rubber around the toe box does not go up too high so the leather can stretch out if needed. This is rare in hiking boots.

This is my second pair. My old ones were the model from before. The new ones are just as comfortable and supportive, and a bit nicer looking, too!
