This may be the perfect trail shoe
I usually have a complaint about at least one aspect of a trail shoe... too narrow, not enough sole cushioning / protection from rocks, toe bumper inadequate, hurts my achilles, etc. etc. I have owned the Gore-Tex version of the Velocity, the GTX, for about 2 years and really liked the way it felt, so I ordered the straight Velocity. Right out of the box it felt amazing. I now have about 50 miles on it and so far it is amazing feeling... much lighter than the GTX waterproof version, very well ventilated, and the rock & root protection on technical trails. I'm thinking of ordering other pairs in case they should ever discontinue this shoe! The perfect trail shoe? It just might be!
