    Great product & service

    Great grippy shies for OCR, great customer service as well!

    Perfect trail shoes

    Great fit and really light shoes! You can run with confidence on ice and snow and I am looking forward to run with them in other terrains. So far I really like them

    100 miles later

    The shoe is solid. Love the grip and the fit overall... there is a little “strap” like lace loop on the bottom for laces that irritates my foot after longer miles... without that they would be great! They just don’t stay comfortable for the Long distance

    Great trail show

    After a discussion, I ordered a half size down. I’m 9.5 and bought a 9, great fit. Great sole, love the laces, and heal lock. Great for trail, obstacle racing, and rock scrambling for sure. VJ staff is great. Fast shipping. Thanks VJs!

    Great fit, more cushiony than XTRM and slightly less grip.

    A fantastic shoe!
