WOMEN'S HIKING BOOTS AND HIKING SHOES

Breeze 2.0 GTX

Features: Waterproof | Widths

$169.99 USD MSRP

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 12 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.

UPPER

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.

SOLE

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 4 out of 5 by Do as asked Normally I wear either heavier leather boots for backpacking and scrambling or my running shoes for easy days on the trail, but for a trip through South America I couldn't really justify bringing both. So these entered my life. And they perform as expected for a day hike/light backpacking boot. They were comfortable for long days on my feet wandering new cities and their light weight meant I didn't mind wearing them as an everyday shoe. They did fine for day hikes and even backpacking trips on established trails. They did start to struggle once they were faced with scrambling up some of the volcanoes, especially for sidehilling and descending on loose scree and sand - they felt sloppy in the foot and too soft in the cuff. Add in a heavy backpack to this mix and they felt even sketchier. But that's not what they were designed for, so if anything they did better than expected. My feet did get cold as the temperatures dropped close to 0C, but they're a summer boot and it meant my feet were still happy when temperatures were up in the 25-30C range. Quality-wise I have no complaints. My feet were comfortable and stayed dry in the rain and shallow creeks they encountered. I didn't get any blisters and there was no break in period. The sole grips well on rock, mud, and snow. They kept sand and rocks out much better than several of my friend's boots. The rubber toe cap provides some extra durability and they still look almost new after close to 50 days of wear. November 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great boots I wore these boots on a 7 day backpacking trip and they were comfortable and breathable while still being completely waterproof. September 25, 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 1 out of 5 by I have been buying Vasque Breeze for years... And I have always LOVED them. However, the design has been changed recently. The rubber toe guard is uncomfortable and squishes my toes, however the next size up was too big for the rest of my foot. I would like to see the rubber toe guard go away. I hope with some wear they will become more comfortable, I would hate to have to try to find a different hiking shoe. These have always been so reliable. July 22, 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
