Eliminate the torturous break-in period.
Forget battling with painful blisters and the stiff, board-like feel of traditional hiking boots with the instantly broken-in comfort of the Vasque Men's Breeze III GTX Hiking Boot. Offering comfort straight from the box, the Breeze III GTX bucks the trend of taking weeks or even months to fully break in your hiking boots. Not only does it provide this broken-in feel the moment you slip your feet inside, but just as importantly, it's more breathable than ever when you're trekking in sweltering conditions.
Nubuck leather uppers maintain abrasion-resistance on the trail, reinforced with a rubberized toe cap for protection from rock strikes. Strategic ventilation panels actively circulate air inside the boot, preventing overheating in hot weather. Sealing out pouring rain and shallow stream crossings, the Gore-Tex Extended Comfort membrane keeps your feet pleasantly dry in soaking-wet conditions. This waterproof membrane is the most breathable in Gore-Tex's line, meaning your feet won't soak in sweat from the inside-out during hikes.
One of the most important features of any good hiking boot lies within its shock absorption and aggressive grip underfoot. Fulfilling both of these needs, EVA cushion pods soak up jarring vibration while the Vibram Contact Grip maintains reliable traction with every step. The Vibram sole employs a MegaGrip compound for unrelenting grip across variable terrain, ranging from slick rock outcroppings to slippery moss-lined boulders and dusty desert trails.

Just keeps getting better!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I had the original Vazque Breeze's from probably 12 years ago. Over 1,500 miles in them. Could use softer sole inserts and new laces, but they were still holding up pretty well (a bit firm).
I went ahead and upgraded to these, the Breeze 3's, and I love them! Great for hiking, waterproof, and feel broken in straight out of the box. Highly recommend these boots.
