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!
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!
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.
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.
