Will be doing a thru hike of the AT shortly, and want to replace my Montrail mid height boots with a low hiking boot. Someone suggested that Vasque makes a great mid height hiking boot and also has a low height version of the same boot. Any idea which Vasque model they are referring to? Thanks.

It is very likely that the Vasque Breeze is the model you are referring to. It is highly rated in most reviews, and is available in both low and mid height. Another Vasque is the Catalyst Mid GTX which is listed as a multisport. It is a somewhat lower version than a typical mid hiking boot. The low version of this boot is no longer available. Vasque.com shows their boots in a simple layout for comparison. I think it might be the Sundowner. Vasque has been making it forever & it has a great track record.
