Not sure how VJ Shoes continues to improve all of their already amazing shoes / product lines. If you’ve not tried any of them yet - do it today!
These are my third pair. Super comfy for my “challenging” feet. Unfortunately they start to fall apart within 6 months.
Just wanted to say thanks for the awesome shoes:
I hunted for three days across LONG distances in the Lassen foothills in extreme terrain and weather for California Quail wearing my Maxx. They performed SO WELL! Saved my neck with the grip!
I got the shoes 1/2 size larger than what I normally wear, and the toe box is still unbelievably tight. This was the first pair of shoes to ever give me blisters. The very first 4 Mile Run put huge blisters on both my small toes. I have a pair of the MAXx shoes in my regular size, and that toe box is bigger than the Ultra a half size up. The Ultra, from all the marketing I saw, was built for great comfort over longer distances, but I think they are terrible honestly. I'm going to give them one more try with a better pair of socks, but if I get blisters again, I'm just going to sell them and move on to a new brand for long distance.
I'm on my third pair and I will never buy another brand of trail running or OCR shoes.
