I have worn Vasque boots in the past and have always liked them. They tend to wear out on the bottoms but have always fit well even right from the box. I am planning a high altitude hike so thought I would purchase the Vasque Breeze, thinking they would be lighter. They fit well from the beginning but I was disappointed as to how heavy they were. They were as heavy as the mid-height Vasque boots I have worn in the past. I will still use them for local hiking as they are sturdy and comfortable but will need to find something lighter for my feet when elevation and longer hikes are on the agenda. The advertsising for the Breeze as being a "lightweight alternative" is definitely not an accurate description of this shoe.

I gave these a tryout on a small mountain hike. The terrain alternates between lots of slippery dead leaves, a rocky ballast surface, and a smooth granite surface. These shoes handled it all well. Plenty of room for my toes, so they didn't feel stubbed on the way down. They do feel a little more roomy than my last pair (which was the same size) but that was a good thing for me. Very happy with these!

I wear these shoes everyday when I walk 2 miles along country roads. They were comfortable right away. No getting used to a new pair of shoes since they felt great right away. They are lightweight. I have worn them in a light rain and in wet grass and my sock stayed dry.
These shoes are made with a synthetic leather.

“I do a lot of hiking in the mountains of Guam, where the conditions are hot, incidental rain is common and stepping through puddles, mud holes and rivers are almost definite. I am curious about the "waterproof" description and how it feels when water gets IN the shoe. Will it feel like walking with two cememt blocks on my feet or will there be a way for the water to escape? Thanks for the help.”
