Wow, I love these! I doubt I’ll use them to hike, that seems like a stretch, but for waking around town they are super comfy and supportive. I have RA so my standards are very, very high for a decent walking shoe. Plus these are super cute. The total package.

Overall, Vasque makes great shoes. Having said this, I decided to buy a previous version of the breeze boot for a few reasons. First, the GTX II version (previous version) has more cushion and a curve to the back of the heel (the very back edge) which makes landing from a long stride easier. Second, the Virbram tread is thicker on the GTX II, by at least 1/8 of an inch - so the tread will last longer. And lastly, I prefer the laces on the GTX II. These laces are easier to tighten and adjust than the ones on the GTX III. Unfortunately, Zappos (my go to place for all of my house hold shoe shopping over the last 7 years) did not have the GTX II available. I found it through another online source. I hope this helps.

When I first received these I thought they fit snug but would break in, so I began to hike in them. I love the way they grip, are light, truly waterproof and lace up. I also really like the look. Unfortunately, they did not loosen up but began to hurt my feet. I disappointedly ended up selling them to a friend for half price as they fit him, a full size smaller than marked. When I went to order a new pair for myself a full size larger they were not in stock. I have switched to the Vasque " sundowner" instead and will wear them in the house for many days before I make a decision on keeping them.

These felt good right out of the box. I have a wide foot but a narrow heel so fit is a problem. These boots feel great and I will pack them for my next hiking trip.

I ordered a 1/2 size up and wide width (8W). They were still too narrow and a little too short. I need a wider toe box, and my pinky toes were very cramped in these. I’d definitely do a whole size up.

This and the Vasque Mantra 2.0 (non-waterproof) are excellent, but a little on the roomy side. I order a 9 M and my foot slid a little in them. Comfortable in the toebox, which I appreciate. I'll note that even though this is same design as the non-waterproof version, there was a structural difference: there's additional stitching in the heel, to accommodate the Goretex materials that, for me, resulted in chafing on the inner ankle area of both feet. I'm sure it would be simple to adapt and use an adhesive tape to avoid blisters, if the shoe was what was right in the other more important areas (arch, width, etc.) but I chose another shoe instead. That doesn't mean it's bad, it just means this design / structural element ended up skewing my fit.

I really wanted to love these boots. They kept my feet dry, lightweight, good quality materials, and the support was good. Only downside is that I have bunyonettes. I got a wide version of the boots but within a few minutes of hiking around with them, the side of my feet were hurting a lot so I actually had to return them. But if that's not an issue for you, I would recommend these boots.

Like Cinderella, I’ve been trying low hiking shoes in preparation for a trip. In this same period, I also tried the Vasque Mantra (both non- and waterproof) and the Keen Voyageur. All are well made shoes. This one however, was lightweight, waterproof, flexible and the right combination of arch support. The inserts can be removed and replaced with other orthotics however I didn’t need them. Highly recommend.

Love this shoe. The toe box curves too much so my orthotics don’t fit! Will have to return.

I have a hard time buying hiking boots. We hike hundreds of miles a year in all weather and terrain. I have worn Merrells for years and the quality is just not there anymore. Plus my feet are wide. I tried these boots and have been so pleased with them. Great width for wide feet. Started with a large hike and no break in time! Love these boots.

As a recent retiree I have the opportunity of expanding my love for walking to actual hiking on trails that require a hiking shoe. I live in an area where the choices of boots to try on in a box store are quite limited with nothing that seemed to work well for me. I proceeded to order multiple brands in multiple sizes from Zappos. This is only possible because of their great service including free shipping and returns. Having had no experience whatsoever with hiking footwear it was hard to know what would feel right on a rocky, steep trail. I ultimately chose the Vasque Breeze III low top. I could not find a mid or high top that did not hurt my ankle bones. The Vasque III is very comfortable out of the box. I was most relieved when I finally committed to wearing them on a real trail and they continued to be very comfortable. The most striking feature of the Vasque is how well balanced I feel in them which improves my confidence as I tackle the more intermediate and advanced trails. Also no blisters, ankle pain or foot pain. I have always preferred a shoe with a very flexible sole and ultra light weight so this category of footwear was new to me. Thanks again to Zappos for allowing me to bring the shoe store home instead of traveling 100+ miles to the nearest REI. Happy feet! Happy trails!

Amazing boot!!! Iusually wear an 8.5 wide and got these in a 9wide because it is suggested to do so for hiking boots in order to be able to wear thick socks. I’ve worn them for several 1-6 hour hikes and they are fantastic. They are definitely waterproof as I walked through several streams and my feet did not get wet. I love them.

These shoes are very wide and extremely hot. My feet sweat big time in them. The sole is very firm also, so I did not find them comfortable until I added a shoe insert. Not sure why I am keeping them actually, probably because I like their look and my favorite Merrell model is no longer made. I am in sales and I wear these shoes everyday. I might have to find a new shoe for shows, which include a lot of standing, as I think these will hurt my feet.

A beautiful hiking shoe and it feels great so far. I ordered a half size up since other reviews said it ran short. Fit perfect with a bit of room. The toe box felt normal to me. I didn't feel like it was tight or short like others had commented and the laces do go to the end of the shoe so you can adjust it. I ordered the gray/green and it's more of a bluish gray. Very nice.

These are great looking shoes. Better in real life than in pics. For me, they felt just a bit large for their size. I am an 11.5 in most anything athletic and I got these in an 11.5. I could probably fit in an 11 but its not such that I am returning. This gives me some flexibility in sock thickness. So I guess I would say the 11.5 feels like an 11.75. :) They are fairly comfy out of the box, but they will take some breaking in. The sole feels like it has a good traction so far, but I have not really tried them in anything outside of pavement, packed gravel or grass. Not much as far as lugs, so probably would get slick in mud, but that is not really what they are made for. Well, not sure really. They are hiking shoes. I should be able to try them in more conditions soon. I will update if needed.

This boot is very comfortable and soft right out of the box. I ordered an 8 W & it fit perfectly. Returning it though because it's actually softer than I want, and the height is not quite over my ankle & dips lower at Achille's tendon.

I bought a pair of these in the late 90s. I wore them every winter in Chicago and through a national park tour plus years of hiking. They are scuffed and an beaten but I still have them and love them. Undoubtedly the best shoes I have ever purchased. In 20 years I gained weight and they have become small. I am getting another pair.

These boots felt so good on my feet that I considered buying in 2 sizes to accommodate my different size feet. But, even when they felt good, with every step my foot slipped forward and it was toe to tip of shoe. I do wear insoles and have for years, but I have never experienced the forward slippage. Unfortunately, I had to return both sizes because of this. Beautiful, nice fit boot if this doesn't happen to you.
