Evolution is nature’s reflex to ensure dominance in demanding environments. The Breeze changed it all in 2004 and a decade later, it’s only gotten more breathable, lighter, and more durable. Perfectly suited for an effort beyond what you thought possible. Whether that’s faster or farther is up to you. So whatever you decide, a GORE-TEX liner and an exclusive Vibram Contact sole free you to focus on the hike of your life.
The upper is constructed of waterproof nubuck leather and a molded rubber toe bumper are combined with large areas of highly abrasion-resistant air mesh for trail durability and superior breathability. An air mesh tongue with full gusset keeps out dust and debris. Webbing speed lacing eyelets plus durable metal hooks in the upper cuff allow for fast and precise closure. GORE-TEX with Extended Comfort Technology membrane is the most breathable waterproof membrane available.
Vasque exclusive Vibram Contact sole with XSTrek Compound is designed with a mix of geometric, organic and serrated lugs for excellent stability and traction in loose, uneven terrain. A defined heel brake provides positive control on steep descents. The dual density EVA midsole is inspired by athletic shoe design, giving ample cushioning during heel strike and providing a stable platform for toe off propulsion. A molded TPU plate gives structure to the mid-foot while a wishbone shape supports the metatarsals, resisting lateral flex, for a very stable trail platform.
