    Comfortable, not good on uneven terrain

    By Wild by Nature

    from Western New York

    About Me Avid Adventurer

    Pros

    • Comfortable

    Cons

    • Not Good Lateral Support

    Best Uses

    • Day Hiking
    • Light Loads

    Comments about VASQUE Men's Breeze 2.0 GTX Hiking Boots:

    Comfortable immediately but too flexible. When hiking on uneven terrain (despite the product claims to the contrary) I felt my feet sliding to the inside or outside of the boot depending on which way the terrain leaned. Great for flat trails, very comfortable, but not good at all for off-trail/uneven terrain. The sales person claimed these were backpacking boots, definitely not, not strong/stiff enough.

    Comfortable but not durable

    • Comfortable

    • Readily Fit My Wide Feet

    Cons

    • Not Durable/ Wears Easily
    • Waterproofing Failed

    Best Uses

    Comments about VASQUE Men's Breeze 2.0 GTX Hiking Boots:

    Purchased for two years of photography hiking across North America and Hawaii. Comfortable and required little break-in right out of the box. Decent ankle support but not too stiff. Good traction from the soles -- at first. But waterproofing broke down after only 3 months of normal wear and is NOT covered by warranty. (I was later advised to forget boot waterproofing and just carry extra socks.) Not particularly durable; leather uppers scuffed and tore easily and toe caps started to separate and peel off. I was disappointed with the short life span and especially the disappointing waterproofing performance.

    Comments about VASQUE Men's Breeze 2.0 GTX Hiking Boots:

    This is my fourth or fifth pair of Vasque boots. I buy them for their comfort and durability and these boots hold true to form. I've done a few hikes with them, the first with micro-spikes and another in muddy, wet conditions. I've been up to my ankles in water and mud and the boots have stayed dry. I am impressed with how lightweight these are and are still rigid enough to protect my ankles. I will wear these backpacking. I do have high arches and it takes a little effort to get the boots on, but they are very comfortable once on.

      Comments about VASQUE Men's Breeze 2.0 GTX Hiking Boots:

      These are great all around boots. I have had a pair for over a year and have used them for day hikes, a week long backpacking trip in the Lye Brook Wilderness and LT/AT I and 3 months in the central plateau Haiti during the rainy season. They are very comfortable and provided good support even with a heavy pack. Very good in wet and muddy conditions. Already bought a back up pair when they went on sale again at EMS.

        The Vasque Breeze 2.0 was comfortable right out of the box with no real break in. I wear them mountaineering for 3 seasons & even in winter with an overboot & gaiter system along with microspikes.

        Comments about VASQUE Men's Breeze 2.0 GTX Hiking Boots:

        I use these boots to do 3-6 hour hikes every weekend all season long in the PA woods. Lots of rocks and boulders, these boot perform well. The ankle support has saved me a few times from long limps home. This is my second pair, the first pair lasted about 12 months, I have not had a boot yet last longer for me so they are average on that attribute. No Break in, comfortable boot, never caused me blisters.

          Comments about VASQUE Men's Breeze 2.0 GTX Hiking Boots:

          After trying three other hiking boots I found that these suit me the best. I am heavier than most {225} and find that the light trail runners wear out fast and don't give me the support. This is my third pair. I get around 400 miles out of a pair on the Appalachian Trail as well as local walks. They are water resistant to a point. If your foot is even slightly over average width order the wide.

          Love these boots. Haven't taken them on a serious hike just yet, but after a couple days of city walking and a few light trails, I can say pretty confidently that these will do the trick.

              I use these boots for warm weather day hikes or lite summer overnight camping trips. Very little break in needed. They give enough support, protection and traction yet are much cooler and weigh much less than my middle and heavy weight hiking boots. Good protection for my feet without the insulation. These are my go to boots for warm weather hiking.
