User Review: Vasque Women's Breeze GTX XCR
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $99
Very comfy, light weight.
First, I really enjoy these boots. They have a high ankle support which I really need and they aren't bulky. I wore them around for several hours around town and house to see if I liked them. When I first put them on I thought the arch in the right boot would be a problem, it wasn't. So I took them to the mountain.
Usually half way up my legs start getting tired from my old boots, but not with these. There was good breathability, stability, comfort and grip. Although I could feel the rocks under the soles, I didn't feel like anything was going to come through the bottoms, very flexable. They stayed tied tight the entire way and down and kept my ankle in line. I also wore normal socks you would wear with tennis shoes, so I can't say which hiking socks work best.
I am only giving it a 4 star because I haven't tested them over long term yet. That being said, I probably will give them 5 stars in a couple of months if they continue to be this great.
I normally wear a 10, but with boots a 9 1/2 is needed to keep my foot from sliding.
