St. Elias GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars Takes a little breaking in. The boot does a wonderful job supporting my foot. After I changed the lacing (I have high arches) they are the best boot I have found for backpacking. They are waterproof so they can get a bit warm in hot weather, it is a very well made boot and I do suggest getting a pair. Full review

Breeze 2.0 Mid GTX

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good backpacking boot. I had my Vasque Breeze 2.0's for about 6 months. I wore them on a 170-mile hike on the River to River Trail in Southern Illinois in May of 2015, and put about 200 miles on them prior to that hike on trails that were in much better condition. Several days into my River to River walk, the seam failed where the toe kick meets the suede, and when I was done with the hike I returned them. These boots were very comfortable, and, as others have said, required very little break-in… Full review

Breeze 2.0 Mid GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars An outstanding boot for the money! Seems to last forever. In the late 1990s, I purchased a pair of Vasque Sundowner boots. These boots blew me away! I owned them for 11 years, without a single issue. Absolutely amazing. I finally got rid of them because they got ratty looking and the outsoles were completely worn down. My next pair was a pair of Vasque Breeze GTX 2.0s. I was a little hesitant at first because of the price, but my wife convinced me that after the last Vasques, these would be worth… Full review

St. Elias GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A solid, well made, very comfortable backpacking boot that doubles as a day hiker on rough terrain. After reading some stellar reviews on the Vasque St. Elias GTX, including its winning Editors Choice as "Best Hiking Boot" from Outdoor Gear Lab, I dove in and grabbed my first pair of all leather pair of boots.  Most of my trail time is spent backpacking but I still get out on a lot of day/night hikes. I wanted a boot that would perform well with both light and heavier loads and the St. Elias has… Full review

Scree 2.0 Low UltraDry

rated 5 of 5 stars Durable, waterproof, great foot support, for variety of conditions. Model 2011. So far, the best and most durable shoes/boots I ever had. I am a fan of Vasque in general, and, once I bought Wasatch (higher boots) for summer hikes, I left the domain of blisters for good. So, they are good, but these turned out to be more durable. Some years of Wasatch had issues with sole of the shoe handling sharp rocks, scree and talus in Colorado. Sole on Scree just goes through it all, and outlasted Wasatch. Full review
