In not heavy use of Vasque boots I've been through two pair in two years. The soles cracked on the sides. Really disappointing. If you post a pic of what you bought I can tell you if they are the same model. There is no way I would chose these for anything.
They were replaced under warranty but that would be of no help to you in some hell hole, I mean great place, you could end up....
