Em_Mehlmanwrote a review of Vasque Mercury Trail Running Shoes - Women's on December 6, 2009
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!
