Evolution is nature’s reflex to ensure dominance in demanding environments. The Breeze changed it all in 2004 and a decade later, it’s only gotten more breathable, lighter, and more durable. Perfectly suited for an effort beyond what you thought “possible.” Whether that’s faster or farther is up to you. So whatever you decide, a GORE-TEX® liner and an exclusive Vibram® Contact sole free you to focus on the hike of your life.

Waterproof nubuck leather and a molded rubber toe bumper are combined with large areas of highly abrasion-resistant air mesh for trail durability and superior breathability. An air mesh tongue with full gusset keeps out dust and debris. Webbing speed-lacing eyelets plus durable metal hooks in the upper cuff allow for fast and precise closure. GORE-TEX® with Extended Comfort Technology membrane is the most breathable waterproof membrane available.


Vasque exclusive Vibram® Contact sole with XSTrek Compound is designed with a mix of geometric, organic and serrated lugs for excellent stability and traction in loose, uneven terrain. A defined heel brake provides positive control on steep descents. The dual density EVA midsole is inspired by athletic shoe design, giving ample cushioning during heel strike and providing a stable platform for toe-off propulsion. A molded TPU plate gives structure to the mid-foot while a wishbone shape supports the metatarsals, resisting lateral flex, for a very stable trail platform.

Rated 1 out of 5 by My Vasque Breeze 2.0 gtx gore tex liner failed immediately I bought the Breeze2.0 GTX boot for light weight hiking. The fit was excellent at first. On the second day hike in them, I noticed the lining in the toe box was no longer attached to the top. My 16 year old son said his Breeze 2.0 GTX did the same thing. After about 6 more day hikes, the gore-tex liner failed. Now your feet get wet in 2 inches of water or even walking in rain. Also, the rubber Vibram sole is very slippery when doing any rock hopping in creeks. Much more so than any boot I have every worn in the past 40 years. These boots may be great in a dry desert but not in wet regions of the USA . I would not recommend these boots and would suggest you save a little more money and upgrade to a better boot. Better to have a $200 boot that works than a $150 boot that fails. FYI my first Vasque boots were 1973 Hiker II's back when they were made in Europe. They were the best boot ever. October 4, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Climbed Longs-boots failed me Boots essentially wore out in two weeks of hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park. Grip was pathetic on the granite of Longs Peak. Sole shows significant wear. Not the quality of my old Sundowners? October 2, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Vibram soles are far too thin for the price they charge As far as comfort these boots are excellent. However, the Vibram soles that they install are so thin that I wore them through in two years of moderate hiking. Places where it were through were about an eighth of an inch. And I was told that these boots cannot be resoled . The investment of $160 is far too high because of these two factors. I will move on to another company. If they put on thicker soles, I would buy these boots again. September 16, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by If only they would last Loved these boots right out of the box [from amazon]. Extremely comfortable, breathe well and nicely waterproof in wet conditions and light snow. But here is my disappointment. These replaced another pair of Vasque boots which lasted more than 15 years -- just could not wear them out. I actually was kind of glad when the sole finally delaminated because now I could get gore-tex in the the replacements. But now, just over a year later, the lugs are virtually gone on the outer edges and completely gone on one heel -- down to the "gray". Very disappointed and I will be buying a different brand as replacement. September 14, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not Waterproof This is my 5th pair of Vasque boots. Wore them on a 4 mile hike through very wet grass. Feet were completely soaked. Not at all waterproof or even water resistant. Fit is good but very disappointed. I am going to return these boots for a model I have worn in the past which was waterproof. This seems to be a common complaint about these boots. September 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 300+ miles After 3 years of hiking and 300+ miles in the dirt, these boots are still amazing. I am a Boy Scout and wore these boots for 2 years before taking them to Philmont for another 100 miles. They performed flawlessly. Waterproofing was still bullet proof. The sole held up well. Laces never broke. If you need boots for your son, these are them. Incredible return on investment. Extremely comfortable. Can't say enough about these boots. August 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing After going on a 96 mile hike through the Scottish Highlands, I couldn't be more happy with these boots. Even after several days of rain, my feet stayed dry and dried quickly after I managed to fall waist deep into a bog. Other than several blisters, these boots are quite comfortable. August 10, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Highly comfortable, but waterproof failes!!! As a hiker/tracker who suffers on the heel – these boots (the waterproof version-GTX) were found as most comfortable after a long selection… But… After a single month of use (6 hiking days) – stepping in water of 2-3 inches depth resulted by immediate penetration of water. Changing to a new pair resulted the same by a controlled test (immersing in water for 30 seconds. August 9, 2015
