Built for the trail but minimally minded.

Ultralight is nothing new and heavy-duty is a thing of the past for trail shoes; Vasque took the middle ground by balancing weight and function when it created the Men's Pendulum Trail Running Shoe. This minimalist-meets-rugged-runner shoe offers the cushioning and protection needed you need for rocky trails and the agility you want to be quick off your toes. As the lightest, most breathable, and most versatile trail shoe in Vasque's lineup, the Pendulum gets it just right for long-distance missions on the singletrack or fast hill-running in the mountains.

  • Synthetic leather upper offers long-term durability and protection from rocks and hazards on the trail
  • Nylon mesh is integrated into the upper to improve ventilation that will help control temperature on hot days
  • Immerse 360 last provides the ultimate balance of agility and support, and is ideal for people with high arches and those who prefer a narrow heel pocket
  • Footbed uses 3mm of Flux Foam for soft cushioning and impact absorption
  • Waveform midsole uses lightweight EVA to support your foot without inhibiting its natural flex
  • Vasque Visualizer outsole offers the traction of a multi-tread lug pattern and the protection of a EVA heel cushion and TPU rock plate

Pretty good.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

I've had two pairs. The first lasted me a full season of mostly day-hiking, maybe about 5-600 miles in the White Mts. of NH, which are tough on shoes. This pair doesn't seem to be holding up as well. Comfortable and light with pretty good traction. Not a whole lot of support, but that's what I like about trail runners vs. boots. the uppers lasted as long as the soles, which is about all you can ask. They have a 4 mm. drop from heel-to-toe; I usually wear barefoot shoes, and this doesn't bother me much. They do have plenty of room in the toe box, which is nice, and you can tie them down really tight which is good for descents. They drain and dry well, too. My only real issue with them is that the removable insole is really an important part, and it doesn't wear well at all. Like, after a couple hikes it starts getting all bunched up in the toes and is pretty much wasted. I tried orange supersoles and they raised the heel too much. Then I took the liner out of a pair of Vivobarefoot shoes and they work great!

So I'm on the fence: still looking for the perfect shoe. I'm thinking Keen might be the one, especially if they come up with something in the 0-4mm. drop range for next year. In the meantime, these'll do just fine.

I think they run a little small- I'm usually a 13 in street shoes and a 14 fits me fine. Usually the case with hiking shoes though, eh?

Great Shoe.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This shoe so far has felt great. Solid, but not bulky. Breathes well.

Great looking show. Got them in red. Walked in them for hours in Europe and they are very comfortable.
