The Vasque Vertical Velocity for men arrived in February and we are dying to hit the trails with it. These super lightweight trail running sneakers are the ideal trainer for uneven terrain. The synthetic and air mesh upper are abrasion resistant (so rub up against rocks, why don't you), and the synthetic overlay is bonded to the stitched toe cap, which means durable. Very, very durable. A high-density foam collar and stretchable tongue are thin but fit like a glove. Or, in this instance, a sock! A moisture-wicking textile lining is included for those who sweat. The lacing is worth mentioning too. The Vertical Velocity's lace arrangement along the top of your foot in fact supports the entire foot. That promises a return of energy with every step or bound you take.

All that jazz aside, why we are so excited to try it is the ESS rock plate squeezed between the sole and midsole. This shields the forefoot from sharp rocks, roots, and anything else you see on the trail. Combined with the Vibram Grip Plus rubber sole, you are guaranteed to step on those sharp trail objects without pain and without slips. The Vertical Velocity has an exclusive on this type of sole. Thanks, Vasque! It is the Mega Grip compound that sticks and is durable. Nothing will get stuck either (twigs, stones, etc) because of the angled cleats that easily drop debris. That means the Vertical Velocity is perfect for loose trails as well as manicured ones. Weighing in at less than a pound and a half, we are stoked to have this on our feet this summer.
