Boots leaked after 30 daysI like wearing boots. I wear mine everyday. These Breeze boots are light and very comfortable. I have worn them almost daily for over a year and they are holding up (wearing) very well EXCEPT for the Gore-Tex lining. I wore these boots for about a month before going on an outing and the first time I stepped in a couple of inches of water my feet got wet, not real bad but noticeable. A year later, when I step in water both feet get very wet. This is my first and probably last pair of Vasque. I like everything else about these boots except I bought Gore-Tex to maintain dry feet when hiking, hunting and fishing and these boots don't work in that respect.

Quality has gone down hill.My original pair of Vasque Breeze GTX boots from about 8 years ago have traveled many miles, they no longer provide the needed support for normal wear. But, they were great boots that owe me nothing, and to this day are still 100% waterproof. I replaced those boots with the later generations of the Breeze GTX, and found them to be of lower quality. The biggest problem is that they offer no level of water resistance. The membrane of the boots allows moisture through as quickly as it's encountered. I am very disappointed in the performance of, and drop in quality of Vasque products and will not recommend them.

very comfortable, but . . .Great boots for the first year then something failed (GTX material?), creating a bad leak in both. Boots were well taken care of, maybe worn 25 times. Vasque let me return them and am waiting for my new pair. Hopefully the new ones will be leak free for a reasonable time, I would think I should be able to get 5 years out of them. If not the star rating will go down to 1 star. If I do get at least 5 years, I'll assume the first pair was defective and the problem was fixed, therefore, I will increase my star rating. There have been enough complaints on these things leaking and hopefully Vasque has looked into these issues and resolved them by now. We'll find out.

Sole of Shoe Wears out Quickly and Comes ApartI had purchased a pair of Vasque hiking boots several years ago, and they were amazing. They lasted me for about 3.5 years of fairly aggressive use, having hiked the White Mountains of New Hampshire regularly. When it was finally time to replace them, I was set on sticking with the company that made the pair that had already served me so well.
I purchased these in June of 2017. By January of 2018 the sole is nearly completely worn out and is peeling away from one of the boots. This summer saw very few long hikes as I has a 1.5 year old with me. I'm very disappointed with the poor quality of Vasque's newest hiking boot. They certainly are not worth their price.

Excellent - Highly RecommendedHiking boots are a very personal, subjective thing. They can make or break a hike. Someone once told me that choosing a handgun was the same: you'll know it the minute you hold it in your hand. I evaluated these against three other op-tier boots from their respective manufacturers. The Breeze somehow came out on top. The Breeze just felt right, right out of the box.
The reason for 4 stars is the tread seems shallow compared to the others. And the sole thinner, as if it might not last as long. Also, buy up a half-size. These seem to run a bit small...
But all in all, I highly recommend this boot for comfort, support and reliability.

Not WaterproofI bought these boots to wear for Elk hunting trip out in Idaho that I recently was on. I bought them a few months in advance and wore them around the office at work to make sure they were well broken in before the trip. The boots were very comfortable and did great on the steep slopes of the mountains when it was dry and sunny. However as soon as the rain/snow hit, my feet were wet within minutes, and made it difficult on the hike back down the mountain. I bought these boots because they were Gortex which my understanding was "waterproof." I never would have purchased these if I knew that the water proofing wouldn't hold up. I had the 2.0 boots previously, and they held up much better.

From Texas Red Dirt, To Sitka Green MossI bought these boots as my first hiking boots. They have performed wonderfully.
I live in Texas, and have worn these boots all over the state. Paired with nice wool socks (Darn Tough), the summer heat didn't bother me at all.
On a recent hunting trip to Sitka, AK in October, I wore these boots the whole time. My feet got wet two times: 1) when we tipped our row boat into the Pacific going to the island and 2) when we hiked to the top of Mount Edgecumbe during a sleet/hail storm.
All and all, these boots have been an absolute joy to wear! Thanks Vasque!
P.S. They look like the day I bought em, about a year and a few miles ago.

Lace hooks are too short on this versionI have been using the Vasque Breeze style boot for around a decade (replacing every 2-3 years).
Support and general comfort is around as good as it used to be although it appears some quality reductions in a few areas and a few improvements. (eg wet floor traction)
However 1 major flaw that has caused and issue, and nearly has made me rethink replacing these next year with the same type.
The lace hooks are shorter and have a tendency to pop off the hook. I have created some work around but this is an infuriating feature. Unsure if it was a cost decision or just asthetics. Will the next update have deeper top hooks?
The old shoes used a deeper hook with round laces, the new one used a shorter hook with flat laces.
