Description

One shoe for walking the long trail, or taking a shortcut to downtown.

From lightweight backpacking to burly trail runs, the Vasque Men’s Juxt Hiking Shoe digs into the dirt and sucks up the impact of rocky ascents. The relentlessly grippy Off The Grid sole is durable enough for seasons of enthusiastic abuse, and a TPU plate in the midfoot protects you from protrusions and uneven terrain without adding unnecessary weight. The medium-volume Arc Tempo last accommodates higher arches and has plenty of vertical room for your toes so you can bound through nature with fleet-footed agility.

good shoes, bad Vasque

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I am happy with these shoes. They are comfortable and fit my narrow feet well. However I am not happy with the customer service from Vasque. After a very short time, both laces broke (within a week of each other) so I called Vasque to see if they have a solution. Basically they said too bad, they couldn't help me. It is not that I was particularly upset that the laces broke prematurely, but for shoes that cost over $100 I expect that the manufacturer would be willing to figure out a solution - or even a thankyou for letting them know there were quality control problems with the laces.

Great for what it is

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Like the name says they are juxt a hiking shoe...I picked these up because I needed a comfortable hiking shoe for chill hikes. I was tired of always hiking in my tight approach shoes and these fit the bill perfectly. They are light and flexible and have lots of room in the toe box so you don't crunch your toes on the downhill. They grip surprisingly well considering the non-vibram sole. They climb/scramble fairly well too. They only down side is they are awful when trying to grip wet surfaces. (Especially wet lime-stone) They are super comfy, right outta the box I took them up to the Teton glacier and had no blisters or problems with my feet at all. They do fit a bit wide which I dig coming from tight approach shoes. These are great for chill trails and scrambling on dry rock. Totally recommended.

UPDATE.
These suck in the snow. We had a dusting last night and I went for a hike this morning and I was slipping and sliding all over the place. They do ok un mud because of the deep tread but the rubber will not grip rocks when wet or snowy. And my feet got cold fast. Not that I expected them to be great in the snow just didn't think they would be as terrible as they are

Great product!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have used this shoe on many MANY trails and it works like a charm. It is light, comfy, and durable.
I've even used it conyoneering at Grand Canyon and on numerous off trail excursions around the southwest including some class 4 climbs. I have never had a problem with traction. ever.
Its a kick ass shoe. get it.

Worthless soles. Fine for around town.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Stylish, comfortable, fit true to size. Almost no break-in period. A shame, because they are useless as a hiker/trail runner.

The soles are so surprisingly slippery on rock that I nearly fell and twisted an ankle on two separate occasions during the first 1/2 mile of a trial hike. Shocking, because the sole's pattern is aggressive and looks sturdy. The rubber, however, is not meant for real traction.

Not sure why a reputable boot company like Vasque would ever make and sell a light hiker without using Vibram soles (or really any manufacturer for that matter), IMO.

If they were a $40 boot, it would be a no-brainer as a comfy around-town shoe, but at their price (even the sale price),they should have a reliable and quality sole. They cannot be considered a real hiker. My Vibram soled Chaco Flip Flops have better traction...no exaggeration!

Sadly, I am returning them.

Shopping for 2nd pair!

I looked in numerous stores for an everyday dress/casual shoe. I'm 51, but very fit and active. No matter the brand or store, nothing I liked.

The Vasque Juxt has gotten me many compliments. They have a subtle flashiness to them, but Olive/Lt Tan/Black is subdued enough.

My feet are medium in width. The shoes feel a bit narrow. But, besides looks, I bought them for the "fully fitted" feel. They do have that. Maybe 2nd best on that score I've ever had.

Looking online to find a place to buy two more pairs! I hate shopping, especially when there is nothing acceptable available. Old man thing. :)

Very nice, especially at half price

These shoes have a very narrow profile. So if your foot is wide be aware of this.

The materials and build is rather sturdy and good all around. This shoe is not made for heavy beatings for extended periods of time as it's rather light without getting into real light shoe territory. The blue is a little more saturated than what I see on this monitor.

i dig'em too

just got'em in and i think they look better in person. some may have an issue with the width. i usually get new balance 10.5 wide. i ordered this shoe in an 11 and there is just enough width. after a couple weeks of pounding around at work i think they will be fine.

I dig 'em.

I needed some light hikers and these hit the spot. They fit great and are very comfortable. We'll see how they hold up to abuse.

Developed Hole after one hike

Seemed like a nice shoe. Went on hike in Northern Vietnam on family trip. This was the first time I wore them, besides the airplane ride. Half way through the hike, noticed a rip/tear where the rubber meets the fabric on the side of the toe. Will take back to REI.

one of the worst hiking shoes

The shoe is very uncomfortable when you hike. Initially when tried on, it seems rather ok, but once you start hiking, it is not flexible at all and give you all kinds of blisters, front and back. It is also very narrow and a bit shorter for its size. I have a size 9 and my toes were bend during hiking to fit properly in it...

Responded on

These are one of the most flexible hiking shoes I have ever had. I've been using them for walks to the store to class 3 scrambles (at least 20 trips this summer). Never once had a blister or sore foot. I can flex my foot down and see the shoe bend to grab scree. The base is wider than the toe box which helps prevent turning ankles.
The extra lace loops help me micro adjust tightness far more than my mountaineering boots or trail runners.

not top quality

These shoes were great for a month or two, until they started to wear out like shoes from payless. I really liked the look and the fit of them when I first got them. The laces allow you to customize the fit for thinner or slightly wider feet, or if you want to cinch them down so you don't pack your toes on the downhill. The tread however wore out very quickly. These shoes are very slippery on polished and wet rocks. After a couple months the stitching that holds the seams together began to spread apart, and a hole was easily ripped in the material on a short day hike. I think these are great shoes to wear around town or for a walk in the park, but if you plan to put them through the ringer like I did, get something that will give you more for your money.

Great everyday shoe!

So far this hiking sneaker has lived up to what you would think. I did heed the warning and ordered a half size smaller than I normally get in most shoes. This shoe does run a little longer than other shoes. It has a fantastic width dimension from heal to toe that 'fits' your foot just right. I will buy Vasque again and again. Better than Merrell and my trusty Lowa's have changed their design. So, Vasque is my new shoe. Don't hesitate to get this shoe.

Bought these shoes for IPSC competitions. They are perfect. Great support, very comfortable. Highly recommend.

Good low cut hikers

I hiked in Cherokee National Forrest this past fall and they did the job. A would probably trail run in them if i didn't have the Salamon trail shoes I have. I have a narrow foot and they fit perfect. Sturdy shoe to not be a boot. Wet "Juxt" soles and my kitchen tile don't go good together. That is the only draw back i have.

How are these shoes on wide feet? Other...

How are these shoes on wide feet? Other Vasque shoes seem to run narrow.

Responded on

I have narrow feet (12M) and they fit some what snug. They don't fit me like running shoes. I have a little more width room than that. They have a fairly good arch support.

Write your answer here...I usually wear a New Balance/Vasque, men's 10 wide. I bought a 10 reg. width. They fit great, and I'm hard to fit and pretty particular about my trail runners. If I find a style I like I buy as many pairs as I can (I go through them in about 8-10 months). I use them mainly for Mt. Biking as they are a good fit with my toe cages. They do look a little funky in the toe box, sorta like a bowling shoe but they are durable and seem to be holding up to the rigors of trail use. I only wear non goretex models, gore tex breaks down from dirt, sweat, and normal use a bad combination in a shoe. Good shoe for the money!

Impressed!

I really like this shoe. I wanted a shoe that laces to the toe like an approach shoe, but wasn't as soft. This shoe fits the bill perfect. The shoe is made of leather which I really like. Super light and the lacing system is awesome. They run a tad big. Nothing I would size down for, but if your in between sizes, definitely go down.

Thank you for your comment! I'm between sizes and went down 0.5 and they fit wonderfully.
