    The Best Shoe on the Planet

    Of all the VJ shoes, the Maxx is my favorite. I love it as an all around training, racing, and travel shoe. The lugs aren’t so big that I can’t run on sidewalks to get to the trails, and the grip is outstanding as always. I’m already on my second pair because I wear them all the time!

    Amazing grip, and so comfortable!

    I love my new VJ's, I cannot wait to order more pairs. I wear them on all of my trail runs as well as practicing obstacles for OCR.

    Maxxs have changed but customer service helped

    The new Maxxs did not hold up well in my race but customer service reached out to me and will be correcting the issue. I am pleased with how well they were able to help with the issue.
