Great shoes! Sturdier than the Mercury XCR

    I love these shoes. They have allowed me to run on some very rocky and sketchy trails. When I had worn them running for over a year (maybe 1,000 miles), I decided to replace them with a new pair, but bought the Vasque Mercury XCR by mistake. I almost killed myself several times running the same trail in these shoes. I gave them a chance, figuring I might just need to get used to a different fit, but they were not the same, more of a heel lift, and not as sturdy! Stick with the Mercury NOT the XCR!

    Just got 'em!

      And they look great! Ordered in the evening April 20th and received them in the afternoon April 22nd--with economy shipping! Heh... 'cause they ship out of Salt Lake and SoCal's pretty close. But, all of backcountry's site are ALWAYS fast to process/ship orders.

      The shoes feel great on and are in perfect condition--can't wait to use them in my first trip to Zion Nat'l Park this summer! I'll try and remember to update after my first use! ^_^

      Great Shoes!

        This is my second pair of Vasque Trail Running shoes and I love them! They offer huge support to my flat feet and are very comfortable. I should have ordered a 9.5 instead of a 9 because I wear insoles and they are a little snug but still very comfy! I like the fact that they repel most of the snow and rain so your feet stay dry. Will purchase another pair of Vasque in the near future. They have become my favorite running shoes!

        I can actually run

          For years I have insisted that I am a runner not a swimmer, but my 60+year old dad run's a mountain trail twice a week - and I don't want to be lame so I got these shoes. Perfect from the word go and I ran about 60% of my first trail yesterday. I usually get 9-9 1/2 but tried the 10's and they were perfect fit. No blisters either. I never thought that shoes would make the difference, but the tread does seem to bite into the dirt better than my hiking shoes.

          Descent Trail Runners!

            I bought these for my wife. She's used them for road running, trail running and some lite hiking. They've been great for everything so far. They have a good amount of cushion and a really descent amount of stability. She rolls her ankles very easily and hasn't had a single problem with these so far! All in all these are a great find.

            The BEST - Vasque Mercury Trail Running Shoes

              I have recently received my second pair of Vasque Mercury Trail Running Shoes - they are the BEST! I have very skinny heels and this is the only trail shoe that I have found that I do not get blisters from. I can take a new pair right out of the box and hike a 14er here in Colorado without having any foot issues. This seems to be the perfect shoe for narrow feet.

              Pretty good shoes

                I just did a 14 mile day hike in the Grand Canyon in these shoes. They performed very well, especially considering I didn't do much to break them in. They felt very stable and capable. I did manage one blister on the side of my big toe, but overall I think these shoes worked well.
