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 Close to the perfect shoe - for me I've been searching for a shoe like this for a long time. Vasque almost nailed this one 100%. The footbed is EXACTLY what I wanted, low drop, on the firmer side, and minimal. The upper is very breathable and durable as far as I can tell. I still wear these in the winter in Michigan and wear a thicker wool sock to compensate for the draft (not their intended use I'm sure). I've used these for everything from a week long trade show walking on cement to 20 mile trail runs. I had both seams pull apart near the toe on the first pair and seems like it was a common quality issue which happens. I will update this review after wearing 2nd pair for a while and see if they've improved. . If Vasque were to build a version of this with more aggressive outsole and a gore-tex based upper, I would use this for my next 100 mile ultra. I wanted a pair of shoes that I could wear all day on an airplane with the temperature shifts, working out, look decent at work, and still wear them after work at the bar. Great job Vasque. Might be a 5 star shoe, which I don't say often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable foot shape shoe This foot shape trail shoes is amazing, it is comfortable, stable and reliable for long runs in all kind of environment. It is one of the best minimalist foot shape trail shoe that i have tried.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ankle breakers, watch out I bought these shoes on sale at REI. Now I see why they were on sale. In three months I rolled my ankle in them three times. On flat ground. Running and even walking. These shoes are poorly designed, as the sole is too narrow and therefore prone to tipping over rather than planting firm. When I switched back to some old worn out running shoes, the problem went away. These are just flimsy shoes. Not high quality activewear. ESPECIALLY not for the price tag. Avoid, unless you want to spend weeks icing and elevating. PS, the rest of the design was cheap as well. Even if I wasn't getting injured wearing these shoes, I've owned them for only 3 months and the upper mesh part of the shoe is already nearly worn through. Complete garbage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My fav! Light and nimble, this is my go to shoe for most of my runs. I do have to use “lace lock” lacing to lock down my heel and mid foot, but once I do that my feet are happy! Just enough protection for me to do fairly long runs, but thin enough that it still feels light and fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great everyday shoe or peak baggin’ go to! Love the look, fit, and performance of the low-profile Vertical Velocity. I typically wear these as a stylish all-day shoe, but on occasion, I have forgotton my Constant Velocity or Trail Benders and have been forced to put these to the test. And, voila, they pass. The Verticals also fit the mold for an awesome peak bagging shoe where technical foot placement becomes a necessity. They are nimble, feature an awesome sole grip, and fit snuggly to the foot. As a Vasque Athlete Ambassador, I can honestly say I wear these nearly everyday for something. From a style standpoint, I get many compliments. Vasque really knock it out of the park with these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Reliable Minimal Style Trail Runner The Vertical Velocity offers everything I prefer to have in a trail shoe: snug fit, flexible, 4 mm drop, and responsive. I prefer a lighter shoe as well and the VV fits the bill here. The laces are a little long for my liking but otherwise it fits my foot well and has performed beyond expectation both during training runs and for race efforts. As a Vasque Ambassador I would highly recommend the VV if you want a more minimal-esque style of trail running shoe without sacrificing comfort!
