User Review: Vasque Women's Breeze GTX XCR
I found these boots very comfortable and sturdy. It took some time to get used to the 'rocking motion' created with this style, but apparently this is very good for the foot.
The only problem I had with these boots was the incredible slipperiness on metal grates, rocks and wet wood. Not practical for west coast hikes unfortunately, so I have switched from the Vibram soled boots to Salomon Exit Peak hikers and I love them!
