For surface traction, this Vasque Breeze LT Low GTX hiking shoe is equipped with Vibram’s Megagrip outsole. Since it is imbued with the Vibram Lightbase technology, it is about 25% lighter than most outsoles.

Vasque Breeze LT Low GTX cross-shaped lugs

Its ability to claw itself into loose terrain is attributable to its many cross-shaped lugs. The horizontal grooves at its forefoot and heel regions provide enhanced security during downhill and uphill traversals.

Vasque’s Enduralast grants the Breeze LT Low GTX stability and cushioning 

A brand-exclusive dual-density midsole called Enduralast is the component primarily responsible for shielding the foot from destructive terrain hazards and giving wearers adequate stability and cushioning. It is made entirely of ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA).

Vasque designers opted to pair this protective layer with an anatomic footbed for additional comfort underfoot.  Aside from cushioning, this insert also improves the shoe’s rebound rate and shock absorption.
