UPPER

Sleek airmesh and bonded synthetic overlays are reinforced with a stitched toecap for durability and abrasion resistance. A thin, high density collar foam and stretchy Ariprene tongue mesh deliver a sock-like fit. Lacing extends to the toe for excellent adjustability and a high rebound performance footbed provides anatomical support and energy return.

SOLE

The heart of this shoe is a Vasque exclusive Vibram Grip Plus rubber outsole molded in the incredibly sticky and highly durable MegaGrip compound. Broad, low profile lugs create excellent surface contact for uncompromising grip on rocky trails, while the multi-directional lug shape provides positive traction in looser trail conditions. Forefoot segmentation in the sole offers a softer landing and natural forward flexing. A firm, low profile EVA midsole delivers a responsive ride while the ESS rock plate shields the forefoot from sharp rocks and roots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Anything I have been wearing these while thru hiking the Te Araroa Trail in NZ over the past 4 months and am quite possibly in love. When I first received these shoes in the mail, I was a little worried about the treads, as they looked a bit more like running shoes than trail runners. That being said, these shoes have completely blown me away and well exceeded my expectations. The shoes are so much sturdier than any of the trail runners I have used during my prior AT and PCT thru hikes. The hiking out here in NZ is no joke, and these trail runners are the real deal. I would recommend them to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Responsive and fast! I love this shoe because of its responsiveness. On techy trails, this shoe can definitely perform. It has more of a glove fit than the TrailBender and its not as wide either, but still has a great fit. The vibram sole is great for those mossy, wet rocks and the nimbleness of the shoe really gives you comfort on trails where you need to focus a little bit more on the terrain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lightweight Trail Shoe On the Market I absolutely adore these — they're lightweight, fit really precisely, and weigh almost nothing. Trail runners should keep in mind that this is a minimalist shoe, so it's not for everybody — but when I'm looking for a grippy shoe that feels like running barefoot, this is my go-to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe, responsive, awesome fit! The title really says it all. The overall fit of the shoe is pretty unique in my opinion. The lacing system starts lower than most trail running shoes, kind of like a climbing shoe, and I think it allows it to deliver the "fits like a hug" feeling without being too snug. Durable upper. Perfect amount of cushion, yet still a flexible and responsive allowing you to feel and maneuver appropriately on technical trails. Awesome traction on slick, dusty, rocky terrain. Everything I've ever looked for in a train shoe all in one!
