I felt something wrong with my Vasque boots.Looked down and the heel of the right boot had let go. In the next 30 yards the left heel let go.
Back to the park and Terelingua Abaja for the night.Explored Terlingua creek the next morning towards Santa Elana.Good morning light for some point and shoot photos.
The boots were always stored in a closet in the house.Never exposed to chemicals,put up wet or anything else I can think of that would have made them deteriorate.Maybe just age. I checked them before I left town and they looked fine.The sole was glued on and just let go. They look like the pair Richard M has in the photo. I have an old pair of lightweight Hi Tech boots that are twice as old and I believe they would have made the trip just fine. Last pair of Vasques for me.I'm in the market for a new pair. Any recomendations would be welcome. I have been going to BIBE since 90 and that is the greenest I have seen it.Old maverick road was just fine.
