The VJ Sport Ultra is especially designed to keep you comfortable for longer mileage on technical trails. In combination with higher cushioning, they are a medium fit with more room in the toe box which is perfect for ultra running. VJ offers the Best Grip On The Planet. If you are looking for a well-cushioned trail shoe, but are not willing to compromise on weight or responsiveness, the VJ Ultra is for you.
Trying these as an alternative to New Balance Hierro for hard packed trails. The VJs are much lighter and have better grip in the mud but less cushion. I’ll stick with the Hierro for shorter runs on harder ground, but I will use the VJs for my next ultra and pretty much anything else with mud that doesn’t need full trail shoes.
The VJ Ultra is one of the best trail shoes I’ve worn. In my size it weights just 300 grams, but has a good balance between cushioning and stability. The level of grip is excellent over a variety of terrains. Have also found it to be responsive on those runs where I’ve wanted to pick up the pace. VJ is a new shoe brand to me but would really recommend.
So comfortable from the first run, and the grip is just phenomenal!
