Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite trail shoe! My foot tends to be on the wider side, but not actually considered "wide." These shoes give my feet enough space without cramping my toes, and also gives my toes enough room to splay. Definitely my favorite feature of these shoes. The cushioning in these shoes is also pretty great - enough cushion to keep your feet happy on long run. They are definitely my go-to shoe for runs over 13 miles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More of a shoe, and a good one! This is perfect for anyone desiring "more of a shoe" and runs very smooth, soft and cushiony! Great for a long day on the trail!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Run them Anywhere Tahoe, Hong Kong, British Columbia, Swiss Alps, Chuckanut Mountain, Forest Park, and many more in-between. The TrailBender continues to be my go to shoe in a large variety of terrains, climates and trail conditions. I am constantly impressed with the versatility of the shoe and durability on rock, in mud and on smooth packed trails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! Finally a shoe that supports my foot! I've worn Cascadia's for years and they were good but I needed more. I am on my feet 8 hours a day then need to run. These shoes have helped take away some of my leg fatigue so I feel energized at the end or middle of my day to GO! Lots of arch support and plenty of room in the toe box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good I like the shoes but I have a really narrow foot so I'm gonna return them

Is this a revival of the last that Vasque used to use on their MindBender shoe? I have not been able to wear Vasque since they abandoned their former last for the new one a few years ago. Does anyone know?

Asked by: Van Ray
Vasque is using their AR- 6 last on the Trailbender Trail-Running Shoes. This is a different last than what is used on the Mindbender. The AR-6 offers a roomy toebox.
