Outdoor footwear manufacturer Vasque is excited to report the Breeze Low GTX as the selection for Men's Journal Best Hiking Shoe of the Year award. After extensive testing by the publication's editors and staff, the Breeze Low GTX was chosen because of its ability to handle long hard hikes without being a stiff, heavy boot.

“Having a publication like Men's Journal give us their Best Hiking Shoe of the Year award helps validate our commitment to designing and producing the best in outdoor footwear,” says Chris Speak, Vasque brand manager.

The Breeze Low GTX, with its low profile and streamlined design, is the perfect shoe for done-in-a-day trail adventures. Incorporating Vasque Spine Technology (VST), a patent-pending shock attenuation system allowing controlled heal strike release and consistent cushioning, and Gore-Tex® with Extended Comfort Technology and a gusseted tongue to keep your feet dry for the long haul. The lighter boot also features molded rubber toe bumpers, Velocity lasts, dual-density EVA footbeds and Vasque Exclusive Vibram® Contact Lite soles, prized for their unique balance of all-terrain grip, unsurpassed traction, and industry-best durability.
