Out of the Box Perfect...so far

First, I wear a 7.5 shoe but I go with an 8 in hiking boots (if you have not read STPs fit guides, DO IT! It is the best guide I have EVER read; I'm a 58 yr old English Instructor who pays attn to detail). I also have the problem of aging feet which tend to widen at the top portion of the foot. Plus, like most women, my foot narrows at the backend towards the heal. All of which makes finding a good fit difficult.
My specific foot/ankle structure also does not tend to do well with hiking boot styles cut above the ankle..until I purchased Vasque boots (model 7391) from STP a couple years ago. (Circumstances interrupted my hiking for a while.) I started using my current boots about a year ago. They have no toe guard but have held up beautifully except that the leather is badly pitted.

I purchased the Taku because they have the toe guard. I have been wearing them around the house and they are a GREAT fit. I'm keeping them and will try them on my next short (2 hr) hike before packing them away to use once the current Vasques fall apart structurally, meaning the arch and sides support. I tried to order another pair but STP was out in my size. Darn.
