Once again fast delivery for great quality shoes. Thank you
I returned and awaiting my refund
I have all 3 ocr type VJ'S now since I got the irocks. Went up 1/2 size and they feel great. The deep cleats are similar to my Inov8s but are more comfortable. Cant wait to test their phrase "best grip on the planet" on the slip wall and olympus.
I was reluctant to purchase a pair of shoes without trying them first in a store, and I am so glad I took the chance. The grip on these shoes really is superb. I can’t wait to try them in the mud. On my first run with them, a technical single track with plenty of rocks and roots to trip over, my husband even commented on how much more confident and fast I was running in my new shoes.
The toe box is narrow, at least compared to the shoes I usually use. I purchased the same size I would usually buy for a trail running shoe (about 1- 1 1/2 sized bigger than my street shoe), and it fits great.
I’m so happy I tried them!
Hands down my favorite winter running shoe. The design of the carbide studs gives me security when I run on ice and snow. The material of the shoe let's my foot breathe yet keeps my feet warm during the colder months when paired with mudgear socks.
Switched from XTRMs and much better cushion for longer distances.
Have not used the Xero model VJ’s yet (awaiting ice and snow). I have the Maxx and iRock (wore out my XTRM’s). Overall love the fit, grip, and lightweight properties of these shoes for my rugged trail workouts and hikes. Let’s gooooo!

Love these, not as many miles on them yet, but hit every surface perfectly! Extract extremely well and barely could tell I was wearing them!
Loving these shoes! Recently switched from another brand and these are feeling great on my feet and my knee isn't bothering me as much. Traction has been amazing! Can't wait to test them out in the mud and on course
Knocked out 10 trail miles with extreme terrain at Stone Mountain GA on Monday with the MAXx. Simply put, best trail shoe I have put on my feet. Submerged in water and were dry within 4 minutes!
Will get the XTRM out on Saturday! Love these shoes and cannot wait to bring to our store!
I am so happy with this purchase and will never by another brand of shoe again! This shoe took me through an intense wet weekend doing the 9'ers in the Adirondacks. I was astonished at how well this shoe gripped the wet rocks!
Fast shoe for technical, muddy and slippery terrain.
The best trail running shoes I have had. The grip is phenomenal and makes me feel so much safer running on trails.
Hurt my knee months ago, I’m finally back at running and had my first OCR but needed the best grip so I won’t hurt my knee again. Ordered VJs xtr and it was the best decision. Very fast delivery and truly the best grip. 100% recommended.
Love the VJ MAXx's. Perfect for my daily trainers or for my endurance races. Pair that with my VJ XTRM's for the shorter stuff. Perfect combo.
OCR / Endurance Athlete
Simply the Best!
This is my all-time favorite shoe. I've used this shoe to win Trail Running races, Spartan races and set FKTs. It's grip, lightweight and groundfeel is unmatched.
The fit is "performance", meaning when you are shredding a technical downhill, your foot won't move around at all. If you like a bit bigger toe box, either size up, or look at the MAXx.
I've run in every brand of shoe and this one out performs them in nearly every scenario.
OCR / Endurance Runner
Great shoe for rocky terrain
I love this shoe for long runs on technical terrain. The shoe grips the foot tightly so it's not moving around when running on rocks, and the grip never slides on anything!
They hold amazingly well over time - after 500 miles, I still have lugs left and the shoe still has the same integrity of the upper as on day 1.
Great for OCR racing as well, as the water drains completely in a matter of seconds. Stability and cushion are great for those longer journeys...
Mountain and Trail runner
A versatile mountain shoe!
I use this shoe as my "everyday" trainer. I primarily run and train on the trails and peaks of the High Rockies in Colorado.
I feel like these shoes were built for the mountains as they handle technical terrain exceptionally well. That being said, I even use these shoes for workouts on non-techy dirt roads/trails. I love the ability this shoe has to handle anything I throw at it. Incredibly durable, lightweight, protective, and stable, these shoes will go the distance in any terrain!
