Who should buy the Vasque Breeze III Low GTX
The Breeze III Low GTX, the Breeze II Low GTX’s successor, is a Vasque Breeze offering equipped with qualities and features that cater to day hikers who wish to tackle mixed trails with enough mobility. It is an ideal option for:
- those who are looking for an extremely breathable shoe that still protects against wet outdoor elements.
- those who want a pair of Vasque low-cut shoes that renders grip on both wet and dry surfaces.
- those who prefer hikers with a classic lacing system for a secure foot lockdown.
Grippy Vasque-exclusive Vibram sole
The Breeze III Low GTX gets to secure the hiker’s footing with a Vibram outsole, called Contact Grip. This Vasque-exclusive component has hardwearing lugs that produce enough traction on outdoor surfaces, whether wet or dry.
For extra stopping power over steep slopes, the shoe is given a decent heel brake. Maneuverability on ascents and descents is also improved with the outsole’s heel and toe treads.
Its front tip, which extends slightly to the upper, serves as the gear’s bumper.
Vasque Breeze III Low GTX’s cushioned midsole
Cushioning users against pointy rocks and making their trail ride as stable as possible is the footwear’s ATC (All-Terrain Compound) midsole. It is paired with cushioning pods made of EVA for extra shock absorption. Within its durable confines is a TPU shank—a subcomponent that strengthens the shoe’s midfoot section, thus giving users additional arch support.
A dual-density EVA footbed sits securely on top of the shoe’s midsole. It improves underfoot support with its bordered lower half. It also bolsters the footgear’s overall breathability thanks to its perforated design.
Breeze III Low GTX from Vasque offers a breathable protection
The Vasque Breeze III Low GTX’s upper consists of two primary materials: 1.8-mm waterproof nubuck leather and mesh fabric.
Its liner is powered by Gore-Tex’s Extended Comfort technology, making the gear both watertight and breathable.
It comes reinforced front and back with a molded heel counter and toe guard. These sturdy sections have vent ports, enhancing the shoe’s capability to stay airy.
Its classic closure system comes with webbing eyelets and flat lace.
