VJ shoes have helped athletes in various all-terrain sports including trail running, Obstacle Course Racing, and sky running achieve their dreams and win world championships.

VJ Shoes - North America

We love running in Obstacle Course Races and trail running in the Pacific NW - and wanted the best shoes for the sport.  We spent way too much money and effort researching shoes, only to be disappointed with the grip, the fit, or the durability of the shoes we bought.  We knew there had to be a better shoe.  A shoe designed by people who knew what we wanted... 
 
We found them in VJ.  Designed, engineered, and proven to be the best in the world.  
 
The only problem was that those shoes were not available in North America. 
 
We decided to change that - and in January of 2019 we launched.  Here we are.
Race proven success by the best OCR athletes in the world, including placing 7 out the top 11 male runners in the World Championship in Lake Tahoe, 2019.  Trusted by pro athletes who depend on their gear.  
 
We hope that you decide to try VJ shoes and that you agree with us:  VJ shoes have the best grip on the planet.
