Best For....

The new XTRM 2- improved in every way over the original, giving you extra grip, stability and durability for the toughest terrains and conditions. 

The VJ XTRM 2 is made for rocky and technical trails. The aggressive lugs and 100% Butyl rubber outsole combo grips dirt, mud, rocks and any other surfaces your adventures bring.

The upper is made of a super durable, light and breathable Schoeller Keprotec® material produced in Switzerland. The Soft Heel technology reduces pressure from the heel bone and Achilles tendon and makes the heel fit like a glove. Toes are left with a bit of extra space to spread, which improves the runner's balance. The sole has cushioning units in the front and heel for comfort and a full length rock plate to protect athletes on tough terrain. 

The XTRM 2 was built for obstacle course racing, trail and sky running and swim run. Use it for tough, demanding terrain in all conditions. This shoe wants to get dirty.

The XTRM 2 is also Bluesign approved, which means that only sustainably developed production methods have been used.

Love these shoes! More space in the toe. Trained in these for Worlds Toughest Mudder 2023. Definitely recommend!

Run Like a Deer

As I was training for the OCRWC, I had a desire to get lighter, more agile trail shoes for the race. The trail runners I had seemed bulky and that's all I could think about while running. I checked out the VJ XTRM 2's while at the OCRWC, tried them on, jogged around a bit, and fell in love with them. These shoes felt like they wanted to run! In fact, I felt like a deer running in them, as they were so light with a great fit. I purchased them the day before I raced, wore them all day to "break them in," and actually raced in them the following day. I know, that is usually a huge mistake. You don't run in shoes you bought the day before the race! But it all worked out for me as my feet felt so light with superior grip on challenging terrain. I also wore them at the War X OCR which had plenty of water. The VJ XTRM 2's were incredible in the water as well. I look forward to every training trail run now with my VJ XTRM 2's.
