My new go-to training and long-distance shoe

This is now my new everyday training and long-distance racing shoe. I have slightly wider feet and the wider toe box is what I've needed. The grip, the comfort, the tongue, the toe cap, and the lacing system are all unmatched with quality and durability.

The development I needed

I have the Sarva Xero 5 and the Integrator 16 since before. This is the update I needed. More cushion for when there's more trail or even asphalt to run on.
Very similar toe box and fit to the Xero which is perfect for my feet. The feet are really locked in with the shoe and I feel very secure running slanted hills.
I expect the build to be just as good as it always is with VJ and that the shoes will probably outlast myself rather than the opposite.
Can't wait to try these on a really long run. Best shoe VJ has made so far!

Excellent trail shoe

VJ has a hit in this one IMHO as the toe box is wider and they are sized right. My 10.5 fit perfect. Went out for an 8.5 mi trail run right out of the box and noticed the better fit, more cushion and the expected grip. I would say these would NOT be the best OCR shoe as the rope climb will eat at the soft side soil (the only reason not perfect for OCR. I am very happy with them!

In love with GREEN!!!

VJ Shoes has done it again with once again making a superior, one of a kind shoe!! The new Ultras are an amazing shoe, they have it all…..soft cushion on the trails, wider toe box and of course #thebestgripontheplanet!! LOVE LOVE LOVE THE ULTRAS! They will not disappoint!

Wide Feet Rejoice!!

I’ve tried SO many trail shoes that fit my feet and work for OCR to no avail. The answer is here. These shoes are amazing.
