    • Probably the FASTEST trail shoe in the world!

      Lightspeed is an ultralight racing shoe, designed together with Elite Trail Runner, Juuso Simpanen to create the fastest shoe on the planet. We recommend ordering your actual shoe size (not your normal VJ half size up!)

      The Lightspeed features VJ's new SuperFOAMance midsole which offers extreme cushion and energy return with every step. This new foam is a modern, supercritical foam that is lighter, more responsive, more comfortable and more propulsive than a traditional EVA foam. Compared to other foams, SuperFOAMance is more durable, does not rip as easily, and bonds to the VJ grippy outsole much better.

      The Lightspeed propulsion plate helps increase the rebound, adding to your running economy. This can help you run faster, or longer, or both! The plate is a special polymer made of renewable castor oil in a Y shape to provide stiffness and rebound and also increase the lateral stability.

      The upper is a light, breathable, durable one-piece that together with the foot-shaped last will give maximum comfort and performance!

      The Lightspeed is designed to be used without a sock liner insert - it comes ready to rock and roll at its lightest weight possible for maximum speed.  Don't worry, if you need or want the insert, we put them in the box.  It's your choice! 

      Get ready to sprint on the trails with ease and comfort!

    Very light weight and responsive. Feels great on the feet. Have run on various terrain from sand, gravel, roots and hard rock to roads. Very true to size.

    Record breaking shoe

    Fast, light, and explosive. The grip on this shoe is tremendous; it holds where others squirrel out. Tiny Loose stones and gravel on steep faces? No problem. Slimey rocks? Not even close to being an issue. If you wanna set PRs, CRs, and FKT’s, this is your shoe. It’s almost unfair. Come out to race in these and you’re essentially bringing a gun to a knife fight.

    Amazing Shoe

    Love the feel. Great Fit. Light. Make me feel Fast. Got the Grip.

    I am SPEED! Lightspeed that is!

    Love this shoe - the fit, looks, feel. All 100%. The modern look and sleek silhouette make me feel fast. Then I start running and the true brilliance of the shoe starts to show. The rocker heel and toe really help me with faster strides, and the midsole - OMG! It’s so comfortable when walking, but when running it really shines with the rebound and energy return! I can feel the snappy propulsion plate helping with turnover.
    This shoe is a godsend! 5 THOUSAND stars!

    High-performance shoe

    The VJ Lightspeeds are comfortable and help me feel fast and confidence
