I generally respect both the Vasque brand, and the various other companies whose materials comprise this boot (i.e., Gore-tex). However, this boot has been a momentous disappointment.
The good news is, on uphill dirt/gravel trails, these boots are very nice. Comfortable, well ventilated, and reasonably supportive around the ankles. The laces stay tied, and my feet are never too hot.
However, on flat terrain of any kind, this boot sends sharp pains shooting from my arches up my legs. I have NEVER had issues with arches or foot pain of any kind, from hiking boots, to flip-flops, to barefoot running, until this boot.
Furthermore, the grip on these shoes is terrible. Even climbing uphill on the gloriously frictious granite of Jumbo Rocks, these trainwrecks slide all over the place. On the downhill, these things are downright dangerous. All of the teeth on the sole point in a single direction, and all all manner of terrain, I find myself surfing down. If my reflexes were worse, I would break bones on every hike I wear these out on. Honestly, if I'm attacking anything under five miles, or if there's any talus/3rd class scrambling involved, I take my Rainbows instead. Seriously.
Unfortunately, I always need new climbing shoes a little too much to justify new boots, and these things have remained in my repertoire for some time as a result. Thus, I'm happy to at least report that like most Vasque products, they seem to be very durable. Only the slightest signs of superficial damage show after many an adventure.
As a side note, the people who have recommended this boot as waterproof/resistant/anything but a sponge are insane. Obviously, with a name like "Breeze" the emphasis is on venting/cooling and not waterproofing, so I'm not holding this against them in the review, but if you're planning on taking these on so much as a mist trail, expect wet toes.
I got these on deep clearance when a cool little shop in my town went under, and I'm STILL disappointed. Buying these at full price would be only slightly less foolish than taking these boots rock-hopping on the Merced.
