User Review: Vasque Men's Breeze GTX XCR
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $165
The Vasque is a lightweight boot with sufficient mesh for ventilation. It is comfortable out of the box but the flexibility provided by the mesh is the source of its main weakness....The boot has too much side to side movement for my likes and seems to have stretched out about a half to a full size in 6 months of wear.
- Great flexibility
- Good ventilation
- No break-in required
- Not enough side-to-side movement for me
- Not waterproof
- Low durability
The Vasque men's Breeze GTX is almost the most comfortable boot up I have ever put on from an out of the box standpoint. I have a wide foot and many brands just do not accommodate it well. This pair was purchased as a replacement for a pair of Keen Targahees.
I wore the boots off and on over grassy rolling hill hikes as well as through the eastern and western bluffs of Devils Lake in South Central Wisconsin. They performed well with the easy hills but did not seem to be up to the task of the bluffs.
If you don't require much in the way of support they might be the most comfortable boots you ever get.
