Breeze 2.0 GTX

Features: Waterproof | Widths

$169.99 USD MSRP

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.

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 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 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 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 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 Great boot, but... First off, I have extremely wide, hard to fit feet. I have had these about three months now and use them daily for work (construction). They have been one of the most stabile, comfortable, and lightweight boots I have owned until a few days ago. I'm not sure if something shifted inside or they are breaking in and allowing my foot to shift further forward, but there is a lump under the insole that's digging into my big toe and causing pain, to a point that I can no longer wear them. This really bums me out because I have liked them so well to this point. I plan to return to the retailer for replacement ASAP and don't expect to have further issues. They seem to have a great warranty and they are certainly a quality boot. May 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by One of the best hiking shoes I've ever owned As an avid hiker I needed a good durable pair of boots that would stay comfortable on long treks and handle whatever the trail offered me. A friend turned me onto the Breeze GTX 2.0 and I have become a convert. I love them so much I bought a pair for my son who is a boy scout and he loves them as well. This is the first boot I have owned that I can honestly say I have zero complaints over. May 14, 2014
