Vasque to Update Best Seller in 2013

Since its launch in 2004, the Vasque Breeze has gained a loyal following in the hiking community. Hiking enthusiasts such as Rick Deutsch (a.k.a. Mr. Half Dome) have endorsed Vasque’s best-selling boots to make journeys to places like Yosemite’s Half Dome.

What makes the Breeze such a popular style? Mixing the sturdiness of a hiking boot with an athletic-shoe fit proved to be a winning combination for Vasque. Add breathability and waterproofness to the recipe, and Vasque created itself a landmark product.


Nearly a decade later? The outdoor market is flooded with light and fast products. That’s why Vasque decided to enhance its favorite hiking boot for 2013. The Vasque Breeze 2.0 (pictured above) was on display at Summer Outdoor Retailer 2012. Watch the video below for an up-close look.

Major Updates

  • It loses at least an ounce in weight
    • Men’s 2.7 ounces / 2.8 ounces (GTX version)
    • Women’s 2.2 ounces / 2.3 (GTX version)
  • Duel Density EVA midsole with wishbone Molded TPU (instead of a molded EVA)
  • More durable, bombproof air mesh
  • Added a molded rubber toe cap

These enhancements are meant to give hikers ensured ample torsional stability along with extra comfort, protection and mobility. They will be available in January 2013 with men’s and women’s specific sizing at MSRP $159.99 Gore-tex and $139.99 non-Gore-tex.
