User Review: Vasque Women's Breeze GTX XCR
Source: bought it used
Price Paid: $4.83
For how much support these shoes provide, they are super comfortable, very breathable, and surprisingly lightweight. Would def recommend these for backpacking or for a hiking novice who isn't sure what they want from a hiking shoe yet.
- lots of support in sole
Bought these gently used at an REI garage sale. I'd had my eye on them, but since I'm not much of a boot person, was hesitant about paying full price. For how much support these shoes provide, they are super comfortable, very breathable, and surprisingly lightweight. Would def recommend these, even at full price, they are worth it.
I'm an average sized woman, size 10, but 10.5 in boots. I've taken them out on a few backpacking trips in the Catskills, N.Y. One of those trips we had a pretty crazy river crossing, and my boot ended up under the water and water rushed over the top of my foot. Feet stayed 100% dry, and the fabric on the boots dried surprisingly quick.
Since I bought them used, I can't speak as much about the break-in time, since they were already pre-broken in a little. My understanding of the boot, however, is that the break-in time is quite reasonable because the uppers are so soft and pliable out of the box.
All in all, a great boot, that I absolutely recommend, even if you have to pay full price for them!
