A heavy pack and rough terrain—an experience to remember or a nightmare in the making? Make sure it’s the former with a breathable, waterproof hiking boot worthy of the task. The Eriksson GTX builds on a three-section midsole incorporating EVA, polyurethane, and a supportive TPU plate. Full grain, 2.2mm waterproof leather offers the durability you’ll need to expand your frontiers. A GORE-TEX® liner, Vibram® Summit sole, and polyurethane internal foam around the ankle just to show we’re serious about getting it done, no matter the terrain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Get these! Best boot ever! Slight rise in the heel, Superfeet insert eliminated it and it fit like a glove. Absolutely no break-in needed. Took em out for a five mile hike right out of the box to get a feel for them ( wore a 50 lb pack) and they embraced my feet like a best friend. My first hike had the original insoles and they were still just fine but I'm picky. The green superfeet insole made this the perfect boot! Get these! Rich September 4, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Good with exceptions This boot is comfortable and well made. However, there is a seam or welt on the inside where the top cap slopes down to meet the sole. This inside seam rides across my little toe in the boot on both the left and right sides. This makes the boots extremely uncomfortable; definitely can't wear more than an hour or two. Hence, these are destined for an early and unused retirement. At $169.00, I don't see me running out for a replacement immediately and will fall back to one of my older hiking boots. I'm gonna blame my body design. Didn't notice this until I'd worn these a number of time outdoors. I'd still buy the brand, but not this style. October 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great company Their boots are second to know one's. Comfortable right out of the box. Vasques customer service is the best. They have never failed me in any respect with their boots. They truly stand behind their products. Will only buy Vasque boots. Thanks. September 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good in all areas I found these to be more rugged than expected, while being lightweight and the sole is flexible enough to adapt to uneven surfaces. I had the Wasatch boot, which is stiffer, and found that I would slip on uneven surfaces because the sole wasn't flexible enough to touch both surfaces at the same time. The Breeze 2.0 does it all -I couldn't be happier. September 6, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by No break in required I didn't need to break these in at all. I put 50 miles on them pretty quickly out of the box with no issues. They're comfortable and breathe well. I just came back from 6 days in Denali with a 45 pound pack and I experienced some numbness on the big toes of both feet. I believe this is due to the toe box being slightly narrow. With smaller packs and less consecutive days, I never experienced this, even on a 17 mile hike, but by day 3 in Denali I had the numbness. I am going to check out the wide version, if I can, and see how that fits. Just be aware there is a wide version when you're trying on, especially if the toe box seems narrow. As for waterproofing, in Denali it worked mostly well. Light rain was no problem, water two inches deep wasn't a problem if I moved quickly. Full submersion resulted in a sopping foot and required me to (quickly) dry the boot out with a pack towel, but when I hit the trail right afterwards with a fresh sock, I was impressed that the sock (and my foot) stayed dry. With around 75 miles on them, I will say that durability seems to be an issue. The foam around the sole is pretty beaten, and the rubber sole itself is already fairly warn. The hiking around here is full of sharp limestone and Denali had a bunch of sharp shale, but the foam and rubber make the boot look older than it is. August 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great boot Most comfortable boot I have ever owned right outta the box awesome June 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Zero Break-In Time These boots have been exceptional out of the box. They carried me to Everest Base Camp and back without any problem. Very comfortable. June 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Expedition Proven The Vasque Breeze was comfortable right out of the box, under 3 pounds & waterproof makes this a perfect boot for trekking around Iceland on expedition. It's also a perfect boot to train in 3 seasons here in the White Mounta8ins of NH. I switch to the Snowburban when it gets colder. May 31, 2014
