I replaced my beloved Breeze 1 to the Breeze 2.0 to discover they had reduced toe area when they added the rubber strip. Can someone tell me if this 3.0 model has returned the roomier toebox? The 1.0 was my favorite boot of all time and I want it back!

Asked by: TimC1967
Definitely try the wide size. I took a pair of the Breeze 2.0's to Alaska and got numb toes from the narrow toe box. Took them back to REI and got the wide, and I haven't had the problem since.

When comparing the Breeze III to the Skywalk, I see that the Breeze does not have a Gore-Tex waterproof lining like the Skywalk or even the Breeze 2.0. Is that correct?

Asked by: Skedeebs
​The Breeze III does have Gore-Tex.

What type of sock do you recommend wearing with these boots to avoid overheating your feet?

Asked by: Jeff13
A lightweight CoolMax or merino wool hiking sock works well for wicking moisture and regulating temperature.

I have an old pair of the original Vasque Breeze 7452M for men.  I find the fit and stability of the shoe perfect even with my bad feet.  Could you tell me how the new model compares?  Can I buy the same size online and expect the same fit and stability?

Asked by: Jimmy
​Fit is a highly subjective experience, so its difficult to say how you will find the fit compared to your old boots. There have been at least 2 new models since your boots, so it is possible they will not feel exactly the same. They are standard width, so if you bought your boots in a men's standard width before, then we recommend ordering the same size.
