Size and fit

This Vasque footgear is built on the Ascent last which gives volume to the instep. Users can achieve a secure and customized fit with the use of its classic lacing system.

Outsole

The Breeze LT GTX uses a Vasque-exclusive Vibram Ground Control LiteBase. It’s made of Megagrip, a durable rubber compound that can resist wear and tear. This component features Litebase technology, which reduces its overall weight by 25%. The outsole’s profile employs a pattern of cross-shaped lugs to supply multi-directional traction on virtually all kinds of surfaces. Its forefoot and heel sections contain grooves for added control when traversing downhill and uphill conditions. The sole’s forepart slightly extends upward to render extra stub protection.

Midsole

This boot-type hiking footgear from Vasque Breeze employs a dual-density compression-molded Enduralast midsole. It’s made of lightweight EVA foam which gives a responsive and stabilized ride. This Vasque-exclusive midsole is also designed to resist constant compression for a longer cushion life. It’s paired with an anatomical high rebound footbed for arch support and underfoot comfort.

Upper

The Vasque Breeze LT GTX is equipped with a lightweight upper made of abrasion-resistant mesh and synthetic microfiber fabric. Keeping the wearer’s foot dry is a Gore-Tex Extended Comfort membrane embedded into the upper. Its microporous surface prevents water intrusions while allowing excess moisture and heat to escape.

A rand wraps around the boot to imbue it with extra durability and trail protection. Its closure system consists of a series of eyelets and two pairs of metal hooks to manage the fit. A pull tab is located at the collar’s back to endow the user with an easy on and off.
