    My go to shoe

    I own all of the different styles of VJs but the MaXX is my go to shoe! I wear them for all my training runs. I wear them for all my trail races. I wear them for most of my OCR races. I love the fit. I love the grip. I love the rock plate.

    Very durable shoes

    I had to replace a pair of Asics that prematurely fell apart. I had purchased a pair of Xtrm a couple years ago so I looked into purchasing another. The MAXx shoes are comfortable, durable, and built to last more than 6 months. The fit is perfect. Although the shoes are a bit more pricey than I am usually willing to pay, these are well worth it since the shoes are sturdy. Great for walking, running, and cycling :)

    Absurd Undeniable Grip

    Pick the "Top 10" trail shoes and I have run in them all. The MAXX is hands down THE BEST trail shoe I have ever had on my feet. Just enough cushion to keep it light and easy for long runs. Excellent drainage, perfect buoyancy to hold my feet up on the "swims" with a life vest letting my legs float to recover.
    Being able to easily control my steps and not be forced to speed run down steeps was huge! I could pass huge swathes of people because my footing was sure while they had to be cautious or fall.
    Climbing steeps - engage monster truck mode and power up! No hands or knees needed! Grip and GOOOOOOOOOO!
    I changed my training, self care, salt intake, cold plunges - the shoe change to the MAXX's was the greatest icing on the cake I could have imagined.

    Excellence in grippage

    The grip is amazing! The only downside is they are a little narrow and my pinkey toe developed a mean blister.

    Amazing Shoes!!!

    Love running in the VJ MAXx shoes for short distances races! They have amazing grip, don't slide around on your feet, and feel super comfortable!
