    I have owned 9 pairs of the Vasque Breeze Hiking boots. I like the boot fit right out of the box and usually have little (<5 miles) to no break in period. They fit me well and I use them exclusively for hiking. I primarily hike in desert terrain but have also used them in wet conditions (rain, light snow, mud). Most of the hiking miles have been day trips but I have used these with great comfort on many extended multi-day backpacking trips (35-40# pack) in the Grand Canyon, Tetons, and most recently 140 miles on the Arizona Trail. The boot grips well on rock and has decent longevity. On all the pairs listed below the soles wore out before the upper portion. I had a minor issue with the inside heal on pair 7 (non-blister comfort issue), and returned them for another. The one pair below I used as long as I could (561 miles) and the 92 mile pair had the minor heal issue. I have also used Merrell, Lowa, & Asolo boots, which were all good boots but the Vasque gave me the most consistent fit/wear for the price. (The Asolo (2 pairs) had excellent comfort but I was disappointed with low tread life for me - 200 miles). I hike about 500-600 miles per year and average about 325 miles per pair. Below are the miles per pair that I received.
    Pair 1 - 300 miles
    Pair 2 - 561 miles
    Pair 3 - 309 miles
    Pair 4 - 461 miles
    Pair 5 - 393 miles
    Pair 6 - 234 miles
    Pair 7 - 92 miles (left inside heal issue)
    Pair 8 - 355 miles
    Pair 9 - 214 current miles
    Happy Trails!

    These boots are incredible. I'm a minimalist, so my pack only weighs like 19 pounds for a trip, and these boots are very lightweight.

    Also, do NOT be deceived thinking that these won't hold up to long hikes with a pack.

    I've taken them on countless 10 mile hikes with a pack, and several small ones as well.

    I ALSO took them on a trip where I hiked 18 miles in one day, and crossed 20 streams where they had to get wet, all with a pack. They held up incredibly. These might be lightweight, but they can handle anything!

    I took them on a five day trip in the rockies, postholing through 3 feet of snow. They did fine

    I took them on old rag 4 times, wedging them inbetween cracks in the rock. They're in perfect shape still!

    Cons:
    Not waterproof, of course, this isn't the Goretex one, so they arent designed to be, but they get wet fast. They also dry out fast though!

    (These boots were purchased for my husband; this is HIS review.) "These are the lightest most comfortable boots I have ever worn. I wear them for work nearly everyday of the year. The slightly curved sole makes walking a breeze...something I have agonized with ever since toe surgery left me unable to completely bend my big toe (as in taking a normal step). I HIGHLY recommend these boots!!!!!"

    I shopped for hiking boots twice the price and glad I took a chance on these. They are extremely comfortable and perfect for my use. I don't do a lot of hiking, I do much more walking, but sometimes up to 10 miles. Even with the best running shoes, my feet would be sore. These are far better at shock absorbtion, and like many hiking boots, they somehow improve my posture, so my back feels better. I like to wear them everyday for this reason.

    Lastly, I was very concerned about the white stripe in the middle of the sole. I thought it looked odd, but then I have running shoes with neon green soles. However, I was very happy to discover that this white stripe is really not white at all, more of a grey, and fits in well with the other colors of the shoe. The main picture does the shoe no justice, they are really nice looking, very neutral, imho.

    The 2E was wide enough for my wide feet. I ordered a half size up from my usual 11.5 as I do for all boots. They do seem to be sized appropriately.

    One strength of the Breeze is the relatively stiff sole. A lot of people like me have foot and toe problems which cause considerable pain. The Breeze has a stiff (but still flexible) sole that helps with hallux rigidus or limitus (otherwise known as "turf toe") Compared to my Merrell Moab boots, these are easily twice as stiff.

    This also helps on rocky, uneven terrain or when carrying loads. I would trust the Vasque for light backpacking in dry conditions, on local day hikes, or just walking a couple miles in town.

    Also, the Vibram outsole provides decent grip on everything from scree covered trails to wet rock to light snow. As long as you're not crossing streams or going through wet areas, the lack of Gore-Tex is an advantage. Gore Tex doesn't belong in warm-weather shoes, IMHO. I really don't like the stuff in footwear, it doesn't seem to breathe at all, so why pay extra for it?

    Styling on the Vasque Breeze is pretty bland, and could use a little updating. But functionally it is exactly what I was looking for; a stiff-soled light duty boot that can be worn for walking, hiking and light backpacking.

    I bought a pair of these for walking on pavement. I'd been having pronounced foot pain using a pair of Rockports. I was able to double the distance I could cover without discomfort using my new Vasques. The first time I wore them I went 6.5 miles without a problem, then 8 miles the next day. They fit perfectly, seem to be fairly cool, and are light for their size. I can't comment on longevity, but if they last 500 miles or more, this will have been the perfect choice or me.
