Ultra 2’s

I have loved running in the new ultra 2’s. The added rock plate was a wonderful addition. Living in Utah, I run on technical trails. I have so far not hit a distance that doesn’t feel comfortable in these shoes.

Ultra 2

Had a little more of a break in period compared to all the VJ's I have worn, but they are feeling great. The more technical the trail, the more these shoes perform! 💚

The upgrades make this the perfect shoe!

I am so happy with the Ultra2! I loved the fit and feel of the first version, but I needed a bit more durability for the trails here on the East Coast. This new version knocked it out of the park! Super excited to make these my go-to shoe for adventures this summer!
