Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great low cut trail hiking shoes I've used these shoes in wet, snow, and dry, and they have great grip, and, as long as the water isn't above your ankle they stay dry without getting hot. They are reasonably light weight, but provide good support for urban treks as well as rocky and uneven inclines and trails. These are my second pair of Vasque hiking shoes, and they fit well (I have narrow feet, and the medium width is good), are comfortable all day, and seem to have extremely good wear characteristics - after treks in Croatia, Wisconsin, Michigan, Belgium and downtown Chicago, the soles look hardly used. I would definitely get another pair when the time comes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Waterproof and lightweight I've had these shoes for about 6 months now and I wear them everyday at work. I like Vasque shoes for their waterproofing, as my shoes get soaked every single day at work and not once has their waterproofing failed. They are a replacement for the Vasque Scree low hikers that I used to wear. I had issues with the rubber soles coming apart with two different pairs of Screes, so I thought I'd give the Talus a try. So far, these are not falling apart. I like the fact that they are light, but the padding isn't so great. It would be nice if a shoe company can combine the comfort of a Merrell with the waterproofing of a Vasque.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Comfortable, but durability issues? Hiked great for a hundred miles or so, and very comfortable for casual wear; however, after around 7 months of consistent use, the fabric on the top part of the heel has become un-stitched from the rest of the shoe for both feet, such that the plastic heel plate is showing through. This damage was probably caused by pulling the shoe on and off every day (I slip a finger behind my heel to take my shoes on and off, and I think this is what wore out the stitching). Not an issue for day to day use, but I'm kind of worried to take these on my next hike this summer for fear of this causing blisters over sustained long distances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable day hiker Comfortable and supportive day hiker. It was the most flexible low cut hiker I tried, which may explain why it is so comfortable right out of the box. It seems to be sized well as my normal size 10 fit perfectly. I have had good luck with Vasque boots before. This replaces my old Vasque Scree boots that wore out after 8 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good balance of comfort and support Purchased for hiking in rocky terrain. They provide good support in walking up and down steep paths in that environment, but are also very comfortable walking in the local part. Am very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great low hiking shoe I've had these for several months. They're dry here on the Oregon Coast, comfortable for hours of hiking or even casual wear, have sturdy soles to protect your feet from rocks, look good and are standing up well so far. They're true to size for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable hiking shoe I have been wearing these Vasquez shoes for about a month and they are the most comfortable pair I have ever owned. On hikes in the Cascades and Coast Range they provided sure footing. They appear to be well made and I should be wearing these for years to come. Also, they look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All day comfort These do everything I want: keep wet out, breathe, protect my sole from rock bruises, make all day walking easy. Key is fit. REI folks know their stuff so, if these meet their criteria for fitting you, buy them!

What is the difference between the Vasque Breeze 2.0 Low GTX Hiking Shoes and the Vasque Talus Trek Low UltraDry Hiking Shoes construction, use, etc? I have seen in the reviews that the Breeze has a slippery sole on some surfaces, same with Talus Trek?

Asked by: gbedevian
The Breeze 2.0 will have more mesh throughout the entire shoe. This will make the Breeze more breathable compared to the Talus Trek Low. Both shoes have a thermoplastic urethane shank so there will not be a difference in support. When it comes to the outsole, Vasque went with a newer XSTrek compound from Vibram on the Talus. This has been known to provide more traction compared to the Vibram Contact compound on the Breeze.
