BRIGITTE M.wrote a review of Vasque Breeze Hiking Boot - Women's on May 9, 2010
Great lightweight hiking boots! As the other reviewers have stated, I can also testify that these boots are comfortable right out of the box. I had to replace my Merrell Chameleon day hikers, and found that the newer design was not a good fit for my feet. I tend to get hot spots in the heel, or near the tops of my toes, but had none of these problems with the Vaszue Breeze. I found that the Vasque Breeze was not only very light weight, but very comfortable. So far I've worn them on various day hikes with the longest distance being 18 miles, and my feet were springy throughout the entire trek. Even though these are goretex lined, they are definitely not waterproof. I also found that dust and sand does have the ability to work its way into the boot through the mesh inserts -- which is why they only got 4 stars. I like the mid-height fit of these boots more than other that I've tried where the tied laces have a tendency to slide above the tongue -- not a problem with the Vasque. While I have not had the opportunity to take them backpacking, I'm definitely planning to use them on my next trip.
