    Grip is great but these are SO narrow.

    I heard VJs were the best grip in OCR and they bet well might be. Wet rocks, river crossings etc are no match for these shoes but I may have to remove a toe to enjoy them. I heard they were narrow but these are the narrowest shoes I've ever worn. I had to go a full size up and they still really bother my feet. I don't know that I can manage any more than a 5K in them because they just hurt too much. I do have wide feet and I generally run in Altras but I've worn Solomon and Innov8 and Saucony without too much trouble but these were narrower than evern my Ice Bugz which I also can't wear. I think these would be amazing if they were just a bit wider for us Hobbit footed people.

    Bought my 3rd pair of Ultras. Nothing but great things to write about this shoe-grippy, comfortable, and durable. Most importantly, I’ve stopped turning my ankles on the trails, and course in this shoe compared to other brands. This is my go-to trail/ OCR shoe from now on.

    Grippy but not comfortable for me

    Love the grippiness of the VJ Ultra! Grips the rocks and boardwalks very well.
    Unfortunately for me personally even going a 1/2 size up, there is friction on the outside of my small toes causing blisters. Wish they had a wider toebox.

    Not great

    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.

    so far so good

    so far so good. ordered a half a size bigger and the fit is spot on. no trail running yet. will be testing in two weeks at the spartan race running the beast and super. and yes, will not break in prior to the race. with the wider toe box, i think i’m good
