Great traction, horrible material durability
I got only 370 miles out of my Vasques before the material on the inside shredded. Actually, the material on the inside and outside near the front of my foot was showing major wear and tear as early as 200 miles, but then the inside of one of my shoes shredded in the middle of a long trail run, really irking me to the say the least. Yes, the shoes provide great traction, but the material is so not durable if you're on single track and gravel trails. Also, the shoes are VERY heavy. They have far more minuses than pluses. This go-around with Vasque proved to me that it's hard to find a better trail running shoe than Montrails.
