Vasque Ultra SST

trail-test-2014-vasque-ultra-sst

The SST stands for ShapeShifter Technology, the injection-molded EVA that forms the midsole and wraps the metatarsals. The result is a lightweight shoe that swallows rocks like a full-suspension mountain bike. On the sole, 4mm of PU adds durability and traction. Test them on flat trails—even with a 6mm drop, it’s hard to get a feel for the 28mm heel. Tester’s take: “Great for the minimalist runner who wants a flexible trail shoe.” Swami gripe: High volume, finicky fit. Swami like: Great on rough ground. 10.6 oz; $170; vasque.com
