Shockingly poor durability

Amazing shoes with best in class grip and awesome fit that I wanted to love. Sadly, the material through the toe cap cracked not even 120km in, leaving me with a big hole. Disappointed!

Solid shoe for a trail 100 miler

I ran the Ozark Trail 100 mile in the Ultra's and they significantly exceeded my expectations. The course is rocky with a couple dozen water crossings and the Ultra's drained well through the water and retained their grip. They are light and feel super responsive. This was important with all of the leaf cover on the trail. The cushioning was excellent and I didn't want to take them off til I crossed the finish line 18 hours later. Highly recommend this shoe for long distance trail runs on rocky terrain.

VJ Ultras!

After running in five different brands totaling seven different shoe "models" the VJ Ultra is now my go to trail shoe! Everyone is different but for me the Ultra has just the right amount of cushion and under foot protection for the roughest trails. The Fitlock upper holds my foot in place and has plenty of protection. The grip on the VJ's is the best I've had on any of my shoes and it all comes in a light weight package. Right now when it comes time to buy a new pair of shoes they will be the VJ Ultras!
