The Vasque Breeze Childrens is a waterproof fabric boot with lots of mesh on the upper to increase breathability. The upper is very soft, so it will certainly mould to the foot easily and feel comfy straight from the box. Underfoot there is a good lug pattern for keeping a grip in the mud too. But the upper may not be as durable as some others due to its complex patchwork design. Also, all that mesh could well make this boot relatively slow to dry. But the main drawback is the lack of support in this boot as it is not ideal for rocky terrain and is therefore best kept to smooth paths.

Use the Vasque Breeze Childrens on level paths and grass and it is okay, but others offer more support and protection for rockier terrain.
