Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around great shoe I have been a hard core minimalist shoe fan, but was looking for a little more protection on tough trails. Other shoes that I tried, even zero or 4mm drop, were too squishy for my taste. I also didn't feel connected to the trail. The vertical velocity has a nice firm cushioning, and the stack height is low enough that I can still feel the trail. The upper hugs my foot nicely, and the outsole grip is great and gives me confidence in the trails. Plus, I can trip without totally killing my toes. One of my favorite pairs of trail shoes ever

Rated 5 out of 5 by from REI Please Continue to Stock This Shoe! I have lots of trouble finding a lightweight shoe to walk the AZ trails This year I found these Ordered a second pair after first one tested out great. The most important feature for me is the sock like feature. No heavy tongues. Keeps my feet in place and the gravel cannot seep through. I understand from Vasque that this one is a trail runner designed shoe for REI only! Please stay with it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Awesomely nimble! I wore these on high alpine terrain mainly running on scree and unmaintained surfaces where they proved to be one my favorites. Its hard to believe a rock place lives inside this shoe because its actually so light it feels like you are barefoot. Really fun shoe for those that like the minimalist feel but don't want to sacrifice a toe for it (you know, like when you kick a rock). The grip is also AWESOME!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Anything I have been wearing these while thru hiking the Te Araroa Trail in NZ over the past 4 months and am quite possibly in love. When I first received these shoes in the mail, I was a little worried about the treads, as they looked a bit more like running shoes than trail runners. That being said, these shoes have completely blown me away and well exceeded my expectations. The shoes are so much sturdier than any of the trail runners I have used during my prior AT and PCT thru hikes. The hiking out here in NZ is no joke, and these trail runners are the real deal. I would recommend them to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, stable, fast. I got these a couple of weeks ago, and I couldn't be happier. It's hard to find a trail shoe that's both lightweight and durable, but these fit the bill. I swapped out the stock insoles for custom orthotics, and I was particularly impressed with the way the lacing system works to let you customize the fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Responsive and fast! I love this shoe because of its responsiveness. On techy trails, this shoe can definitely perform. It has more of a glove fit than the TrailBender and its not as wide either, but still has a great fit. The vibram sole is great for those mossy, wet rocks and the nimbleness of the shoe really gives you comfort on trails where you need to focus a little bit more on the terrain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe, responsive, awesome fit! The title really says it all. The overall fit of the shoe is pretty unique in my opinion. The lacing system starts lower than most trail running shoes, kind of like a climbing shoe, and I think it allows it to deliver the "fits like a hug" feeling without being too snug. Durable upper. Perfect amount of cushion, yet still a flexible and responsive allowing you to feel and maneuver appropriately on technical trails. Awesome traction on slick, dusty, rocky terrain. Everything I've ever looked for in a train shoe all in one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lightweight Trail Shoe On the Market I absolutely adore these — they're lightweight, fit really precisely, and weigh almost nothing. Trail runners should keep in mind that this is a minimalist shoe, so it's not for everybody — but when I'm looking for a grippy shoe that feels like running barefoot, this is my go-to.
