Vasque Women’s Breeze LT GTX Hiking Boots Review: Unbelievably Light Hiking Boots

Vasque Breeze LT GTX Hiking Boots

Your legs and feet can get tired enough on the trail without heavy hiking boots weighing them down. Vasque’s new Breeze LT GTX boots are so lightweight that they feel like sneakers, but have all the hiking boot essentials, like waterproofing and Vibram soles.

Vasque Breeze LT GTX Review:

Price and Where to Buy: The boots are available on Amazon starting at $159.95 or on Vasque’s website for $169.99.

How the Vasque Breeze LT GTX Boots Rate:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. The Vasque Breeze LT GTX has everything you need in a hiking boot: waterproof GORE-TEX, an exclusive Vibram LiteBase with Megagrip sole, a moisture-wicking lining, an anatomically designed high rebound footbed, and an abrasion-resistant upper. All this, plus they only weigh 1 lb 6 oz, which is 25 percent less than Vasque’s original Breeze boots.
  • Value: 10/10. These boots are well priced for hiking boots, especially ones with all of the above features.
  • Durability: 10/10. The abrasion-resistant mesh upper will keep these boots from getting scuffed or punctured, and they will last for a long time.
  • Style: 8/10. The Breeze LT GTX boots come in black with the option of three accent colors: bright blue, dark purple eggplant, and neon green.

Final Verdict: Looking to lighten up your hikes? Check out the Vasque Breeze LT GTX boots.
