The new XTRM 2- improved in every way over the original, giving you extra grip, stability and durability for the toughest terrains and conditions. 

The VJ XTRM 2 is made for rocky and technical trails. The aggressive lugs and 100% Butyl rubber outsole combo grips dirt, mud, rocks and any other surfaces your adventures bring.

The upper is made of a super durable, light and breathable Schoeller Keprotec® material produced in Switzerland. The Soft Heel technology reduces pressure from the heel bone and Achilles tendon and makes the heel fit like a glove. Toes are left with a bit of extra space to spread, which improves the runner's balance. The sole has cushioning units in the front and heel for comfort and a full length rock plate to protect athletes on tough terrain. 

The XTRM 2 was built for obstacle course racing, trail and sky running and swim run. Use it for tough, demanding terrain in all conditions. This shoe wants to get dirty.

The XTRM 2 is also Bluesign approved, which means that only sustainably developed production methods have been used.

Had my doubts, but they deliver!

I already have a pair of Ultras (and now the Ultra 2), but I had several people rave about these to me, so decided to try a pair. I honestly had my doubts since the fit was so different than the Ultra, and I was really worried about the width of the toe box (I'm very sensitive to that). Did a couple short trail runs with them, and then took them out for a very hilly Rugged Maniac (at a motocross track) this past Saturday. Absolutely amazing, and LOVED them. So insanely grippy. While people in regular sneakers were sliding down the hills, I literally (just to see if it would work) stopped my run down in the middle, and stood on the hill, not sliding at all. Decent drainage too for sure. These are definitely going in my OCR rotation.

great but...

I ordered the same size I used to buy in other brands, but they were smaller.

I recommend to choose an additional half size.

Killer Grip and Solid Fit!!

Took the XTRM2’s out for their first race and they shone brightly through loose/rocky terrain, mucky water crossings, steep uphill, and bombing downhills. Grip was amazing! Fit was super solid! Overall the XTRM2 has secured its place in my racing quiver and would highly recommend!

My first VJs…love them

Perfect for my feet, good space in toe box, no break in, not too hot, breathe well, dry quickly. I feel sure footed, close to the ground, good protection.
Not to forget the very good grip. I currently use only on local Pennsylvania trails but I will take these instead of heavy hiking boots when I go hiking in Swiss Alps. And I have the Xtrm2 in my gym shoe rotation as well.
I wish they came in more discreet colors and I would wear them as a casual shoe as well.

Awesome OCR shoe!

I recently used this shoe for a Spartan Super and Beast in one weekend. They had excellent grip and the mud would not stick to the bottom of the shoes. Absolutely would buy these again!
