Best OCR shoe I've ever owned.

Great Shoe!

Did the thing you aren’t supposed to do and broke them in with 55 miles during Toughest Mudder. Feet felt as good as could be expected and I never had trouble with grip.

Great shoe, missed the mark with durability

The shoe is amazing. The fit, the feel and the grip are all top notch. But the foam was bursting open on the bottom after 30 rugged miles and then 3 of the rubber lugs on the inside of the food, under the ball of my big toe, on both sides tore out completely. I shoe glued them back in and I expect it to last longer than the initial glue but I think whomever designed the shoe was a tad confused on the terrain they were targeting it for.

HOWEVER, I emailed VJ and they got back to me immediately and sent me a new pair without me asking. I’ve heard and seen amazing reviews about their other shoes, so I think once they work out the bugs with this one it’ll be an amazing shoe as well.

Sizing up made a huge difference!

Solid shoe once I sized up appropriately. I usually wear a 12 in VJs but for some reason the ULTRA's didn't work for me in that size. SO, I went with a 12.5 and voila no more toes slamming on trail and its a super comfy ride. Love them for recovery run, hikes, dog walks, and because they look super fresh!
