User Review: Vasque Women's Breeze
Use: long walk
Break-in Period: 2 months
Weight: 3 lbs
Price Paid: $130
We bought these boots after spending several hours at various stores including REI. My wife intended to walk 200+ miles in various conditions in Spain. She reports they were very comfortable. Until it rained.
The Gore-tex socks failed in both boots and she had more than a 'wringable' amount of water standing in both boots. Note-rain gear was over the tops and the tops were dry and there were no large puddles. Just walking. The boots failed miserably keeping her feet dry.
Comfort was plus. REI took them right back but that doesn't help the manufacturer to gain knowledge about boot failure. I also walked in a Vasque boot (men's) with Gore-tex failure. Comfort yes. Wet, a big no.
