Forget battling with painful blisters and the stiff, board-like feel of breaking in a traditional hiking boot with the instant comfort of the Vasque Women’s Breeze III GTX Hiking Boot. Offering comfort straight from the box, the Breeze III GTX bucks the trend of taking weeks or even months to fully break in a hiking boot. Not only does it provide this broken-in feel the moment you slip your feet inside, but just as importantly, it’s more breathable than ever when you’re trekking in sweltering conditions.
Nubuck uppers maintain abrasion-resistance on the trail, reinforced with a rubberized toe cap for protection from rock strikes. Strategic ventilation panels actively circulate air inside the boot, preventing overheating in hot weather. Sealing out pouring rain and shallow stream crossings, the Gore-Tex Extended Comfort membrane keeps your feet pleasantly dry in soaking-wet conditions. This waterproof membrane is the most breathable in Gore-Tex’s line, meaning your feet won’t soak in sweat from the inside-out during hikes.
One of the most important features of any good hiking boots lies within its shock absorption and aggressive grip underfoot. Fulfilling both of these needs, EVA cushion pods soak up jarring vibration while the Vibram Contact Grip maintains reliable traction with every step. The Vibram sole employs a MegaGrip compound for unrelenting grip across variable terrain, ranging from slick rock outcroppings to dusty desert mesas.
