The shoe that changed hiking gets a change of its own. In 2004, the original Breeze was light, cool, and athletically-inclined. It quickly became one of the most popular hiking boots in the United States. Reconfigured to be lighter, tougher, and more breathable than the original, the Breeze 2.0 is perfectly tuned for the realities of today’s hiking trends. Lighter loads and a faster pace rule the trail. Breeze set that pace almost a decade ago. The Breeze 2.0 picks it up considerably. The shoe features the Vasque Exclusive Vibram Contact outsole, reflective piping, and Gore-Tex with extended comfort technology. Fit Profile: The Breeze 2.0 is built on the Arc Tempo Last, featuring an asymmetric curve for people with higher arches, a tapered toe box which provides adequate toe room, but without wasted space, good vertical toe room, and a medium volume heel that fits a wide range of shapes. The last is ideal for people wanting agility and quick foot turnover, moving quickly over technical ground. The asymmetrical shape provides a more powerful toe off, and the aggressive toe spring facilitates rapid obstacle clearance.
