UPPER

A 2mm waterproof nubuck leather and abrasion resistant air mesh upper is designed to maximize breathability. Molded toe and heel counters add durability and are designed with vents to add increased breathability. A Gore-Tex membrane with extended comfort waterproof membrane provides guaranteed protection in wet environments while also being highly breathable. A speed lace system allows for quick fit adjustments and the locking ankle hook adds security and a positive fit.

SOLE

A dual density compression molded midsole has a main chassis molded in Vasque’s All-Terrain compound for excellent compression resistance and torsional stability while the EVA comfort density provides athletic level cushioning and great step in comfort. An instep TPU shank balances the need for stability, while still remaining nimble. The Vasque exclusive Vibram Contact Grip outsole was designed specifically for use with the incredible Megagrip rubber compound, delivering great loose trail traction with uncompromising grip on rocky terrain.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Paid for Gore-Tex, got a wet foot My wife had Vasque Breeze boots for years and loved them, so she bought me a pair. I loved the fit and comfort, but after less than half a dozen trips totaling less than 30 miles, I found that they weren't waterproof at all. Not a slow seep, but my foot and sock would get completely soaked from one step in a puddle. I wasn't able to get out hiking much when I first got them, so it wasn't until after the warranty expired that I discovered the problem. I contacted Vasque and they basically told me that the warranty was over so I was out of luck. I really liked these shoes and wish that I could wear them hiking and hunting, but without waterproofness, they are pretty much useless to me. I could have bought shoes for half the price or less if I wanted a wet foot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Winter Use? I have found these boots to very cold for winter use. I thought the thinsulate would keep my feet warm but that assumption was wrong. I'm going to have find an alternative.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not like the Breeze II My Breeze IIs are starting to show some end of life after 3 years of very rugged hiking in the mountains. These have been great boots. So stopped into REI to look at the Breeze IIIs. I had my old Breeze IIs with me which helped me in the comparison. I could see how my old ones had worn and the changes to the new ones. I was disappointed in what I found. The soles on the new boots are lighter, thinner and actually had about as much rubber as my mostly worn-out soles. this means they are about 1/2 as thick as the old ones. the next think is that in the old ones there are these hard plastic pieces between the soles and the thick cushion layer. These are part of what made these older boots hold up and have torsional rigidity. This is gone and replaces with of all things a lighter piece of foam rubber. In the pictures it looks like the same thing but not in real life. The next thing is the front toe bumper on the old pair has taken some abuse but is still there. The new bumper does not look like it would hold up. Bottom line is the new boots look like fashion boots. So I gave up and found some older Vasque Talus GTXs in the REI garage. I hope they work out, they probably will, nice thick soles and apparent toughness. I have no idea why they would change from what was a great boot they are already making and turn it into a fashion boot. Oh well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as its predecessor in quality Comfortable boot, have owned numerous pairs of Vasque boots but it seems the quality has degraded significantly. The old boots including the Breeze II were better made. The glue on the toe bumpers started coming loose almost immediately and since I had wore them in the outdoors (where you are supposed to wear them) they could not be returned so I have parked them in the closet to keep them from coming apart. This is the only major fault and the others are wear related so I will probably end up with another pair after the older pair completely fails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Believer My first pair of Vasque boots were original Sundowners that lasted me over 17 years. I wore them until I couldn't literally wear them any longer. I am an outdoor adventure lifestyle photographer and hiking is highest on my list of outdoor activities that I feel passionate about in both my work and my personal life. The Breeze III's have been a welcome addition to my footwear collection. They broke in very quickly, keep my feet bone dry, warm and I have not witnessed any wear and tear like others have mentioned that is beyond what would occur from natural use. After all these are hiking boots. My Breeze III's literally feel like slippers now and I feel comfortable wearing them for long trail days or just getting around Denver on a cold winter or wet kind of day. The grip has been amazing especially on rocks in Moab, Utah. Overall extremely satisfied.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from comfortable, but soles wore out quickly Been wearing them for about 6 months as my regular shoes, hiking, etc. They're very comfortable but the soles wore out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lace hooks are too short on this version I have been using the Vasque Breeze style boot for around a decade (replacing every 2-3 years). Support and general comfort is around as good as it used to be although it appears some quality reductions in a few areas and a few improvements. (eg wet floor traction) However 1 major flaw that has caused and issue, and nearly has made me rethink replacing these next year with the same type. The lace hooks are shorter and have a tendency to pop off the hook. I have created some work around but this is an infuriating feature. Unsure if it was a cost decision or just asthetics. Will the next update have deeper top hooks? The old shoes used a deeper hook with round laces, the new one used a shorter hook with flat laces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for Elk Hunting and Backpacking I spent 20+ days in the backcountry last fall in the Breeze III, and it was excellent. As a sponsored ultrarunner for years (and current Vasque-sponsored athlete), I have used a wide range of "waterproof" footwear. This is the first shoe/boot I've had that actually keeps water out after multiple hours/days, even in slush, bogs, and wet grass. I really like the Breeze III and will continue to hunt and backpack in the same pair next fall.
