Follow Up Report on Vasque Hiking Boots

We are back from our trip to the Sierra. How did the Vasque boots fair in the High Sierra? Anyone who has mountaineered in the Sierra knows the rough terrain: boulder fields, talus, and scree. The correct boots are really crucial if you want happy feet! The Vasque Breeze hiking boots did not disappoint.
Here's what I liked:

  • No break-in period
  • Extremely lightweight
  • Very comfortable - no blisters or hotspots
  • High top for additional ankle support and help keep rocks out of the boots
  • Durable. No visible wear.

Final verdict: Great backpacking and mountaineering boot. Good for hikes in Mt. Charleston and the Sierra. They are so comfortable you can use them on trails. They would not be my first choice for Red Rock hikes. They do not have sticky rubber soles.
Highly recommended!
