Looking for a non-waterproof hiking boot

I do a lot of desert hiking and have no need for a waterproof boot. I find that waterproof boots in the desert are way too hot. My Vasque Breeze non-waterproof boots are finally wearing out after two years. I'd like to buy the same boots, but it appears that Vasque does not make a non-waterproof version anymore. I'm finding it very difficult to do a search for non-waterproof, midlevel hiking boots, as there are no hits when I enter this criteria in a search. Can anyone suggest a quality non-waterproof boot? I have bought Salomon and Vasque in the past.

thanks

@chacmool Thanks for reaching out!

We have several good options for you in the non-waterproof category of boots. You didn't mention if you wanted men's or women's, so we'll include both in our suggestions.

Hopefully this helps!

I have had similar issues with waterproof boots and trail shoes and finally settled on the Merrell Moab 2 Mid Ventilator Hiking. I still wear more sturdy, waterproof boots in winter, but the Moab 2 Vent Spring through Fall.

Thanks John

I've had the Moab boots before and they are very good. I've noticed Merrell has improved them steadily over the years.
