Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and Comfortable Just received my 2nd pair of Vasque Breeze and I wanted to pass on how very pleased I was with the first pair. I showed no mercy to the Breeze II through several trips in the Sierras and Rockies as well as daily 5 mile walks on my hometown trails. The tread proved to be the weak link as the rest of the shoe was in fine shape. Regardless, considering all the miles I put on them I got more than my monies worth. Side note, I took me a while to break in the first pair because the toe box was a little tight....so this time around I got a Wide size and they fit perfectly right out of the box. Also, no big deal to me, but the Breeze III delivered to my house is darker than the display picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great low hiking shoe I very muck like these low hiking shoes. Comfortable, with good grip. As I have a wide pair of feet many so called wide shoes are not comfortable, these are. Quite waterproof as recent rains have demo'd

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product - Highly Recommended! Hi everyone, First off, it's important to know I'm (really) picky when it comes to hiking/backpacking shoes and boots. Colorado has it's share of wonderfully diverse trails that require stability and durability in a wide spectrum of conditions. This shoe can do it ALL! During a quick 3 day back packing trip with my son last weekend into Wildcat Canyon to the South Platte from Platte Springs, this shoe was subjected to everything from marshy creek beds, steep(!) loose scree to uber slick river rock and sticky granite traverses - all with pack fully loaded. Kudos to the design team for knocking this one out of the park! I can't wait to try on the Breeze III GTX boot for proper sizing and keep close for that next great trip. Thanks Vasque for a product that far exceeded my expectation in every category. Couldn't recommend more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a comfortable shoe for every day Bought these shoes to hike at the beach and around town. So far very happy with how they feel and how comfortable they are.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good boot for light backpacking Bought a pair of these for a hiking/backpacking trip in the UK and general city walking in London. Broke them in gently on a few day hikes in Vermont- though they needed little break in time. Walked about 40 miles a week for two weeks on city streets getting ready for a one week long 110+ mile backpacking trip on the South Downs Way in July. Very hot and dry for the UK, so the chalky trail was hard underfoot. The boots held up very well during the hike, were comfortable and stayed laced (a real problem with some designs). The trail requires 12,600ft of ascent and the 8.5 wides with mid-weight socks worked as well on the mixed terrain as any boots I've used over many years of hiking. Only minor complaint is that after about 2.5 months of walking and hiking (maybe 400 miles in total) the soles have worn down and I can feel too much give in the insole supports. I expected a little longer service from the shoes (the uppers still look like new).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits smaller than most Vasques I've been wearing Vasque's for a long time, even though they got weird a few years ago (anyone else try the alien Ultra SST with the Boa?). I need a waterproof shoe for a rainy trek coming up, so I am trying this shoe now. I have a Vasque Inhaler in an 8M, and it fits great. No blisters. But one hike the Breeze III 8.5M and I was getting blisters. I am trying the 9 wide now. Not sure if it's just the stiffer GTX shell or the shoe model, but it's much smaller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, good support, waterproof I've worn these most days for the past six weeks. The title says it all. I'm quite happy with them and highly recommend them. I just wish they also came in B width.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great light duty walking shoe I bought these shoes for urban use: walking around town and bicycle commuting. For these purposes, they have been very good. I've been on my bike and on long urban hikes in light to hard rains in Seattle, and my feet have remained very dry. They're pretty comfortable right out of the box. On day hikes in the mountains, they've been pretty functional, too. I wouldn't wear them for really hard hikes, or for backpacking, though. My only complaint is that the tread seems to be wearing out pretty quickly. I've only had these shoes for a few months, but I'm guessing I'll need to replace them in about a year. I don't think it's a shoe that will last for years and years. (Note: this is typical for me. I don't have a car, and tend to walk a lot.)

Questions & Answers

how wide and confortable are if you have bunions?

Asked by: serch
Most customers find these shoes run true to size and true to width; they do not allow for a lot of room in the toe box as they do not run wide. We suggest ordering a wide size if you need more space in the toe box.

I wear a size 10 to10.5 EEEE shoe. What size of these would you recommend?

Asked by: MikeT
​These shoes come in a wide size that equates to an 2E. Since you are a 4E, you may find these boots are not wide enough.

How do these differ from the Breeze 2.0? (The Vasque web site only shows the 2.0 still) Will the be available in a non-GTX flavor?

Asked by: Badger42Badger
This version has an updated outsole that uses a new compound to provide better traction. At the same time, the newer compound is stronger and less bulky to reduce weight. There are new vents in the toe cap for better ventilation and this version was designed with a different last that is shaped to fit a wider variety of feet.

Hi.  What is the mm toe drop on this shoe?  I'm looking in the 9mm to 12 mm toe drop range.  This shoe looks great for hiking and daily wear.

Asked by: William Lichtblau
We're sorry, that information is not available.

Why are the shoestrings so incredibly long? Also, most outdoor shoes (running, hiking) seem to recommend ordering 1/2 size up, but these do not.  Are they true to size?

Asked by: dgphil54
For this hiking shoe, half of the customers said they were true-to-size and the other half had to go a half size up. If you are often in between sizes, we suggest sizing a half size up for these shoes. Also, the laces on hiking boots and shoes tend to be longer to accommodate strategic lacing to prevent foot shifting, unravelling and for comfort. You can see more about hiking lacing at the REI Expert Advice article below. https://www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice/lacing-hiking-boots.html

Is the rubber soles non-marking? I frequently get on and off fiberglass boats and soles need to be non-marking to prevent black marks on the boat. I would also like to understand how they handle wet surfaces and rock with regards to traction.

Asked by: CaptainB
The soles on these shoes are not designed to be non-marking. The Vibram Contact Grip outsoles with Megagrip provide excellent traction on wet and rocky surface areas.
