I also own the Vasque Velocity - the Blur has a far better fit with more room on both sides of the toe box and a well-designed, non-slipping heel fit. The Gore Tex works great - super for wet running. I also use them snowshoeing (very comfry with the Atlas' strap system), and they're great for winter backbacking - just add a pair of OR Rocky High gaiters. The fit is SO stable and very secure around the arches. Excellent for a normal to wider foot, in the normal sizing. Impressive tread.

I already owned Vasque Velocity - NOT GTX. I thought Velocity GTX would be like its non-Gore-Tex counterpart. Sorta. The ankle area is puffier due to another layer in construction. I soon noticed the left shoe had to be tied a half inch closer together than the right. After four days,I started to have pain due to the booties forming a number of lumps around the inner shoe perimeter. Thereafter, I encountered significant snow - waterproof aspect was outstanding. They are well designed and sturdy. The shoe last is a bit curved and for someone who needs extra toe box room, the little toe may feel a bit impinged.

A thin, low cut, stretchy gaitor. Really only for GROOMED track skiing or trail running in mild snow. I needed something heavier and returned these. The material is about as heavy as a heavy pair of tights (thought certainly more durable. Maybe a great product in the right conditions, since in general I've found OR to be a good company.
