Part sturdy trail runner, part road shoe, the Vasque Women's Blur Trail Running Shoe is an adept set of wheels for both your neighborhood road routes and trail running adventures. In fact, the testers at Outside magazine were so impressed with how this shoe behaved on both road and trail that they singled it out as the 2006 Gear of the Year award winner in the trail runner category. Qualities that stood out for the Outside staff included a deep heel pocket that holds the heel in place, a roomy toe box that allows each digit to freely wriggle, and underfoot protection that doesn't feel clunky or tippy when road running. To give the women's Vasque Blur Trail Running Shoe the stability for trail use without an awkward feel on the road, Vasque uses a lightweight nylon textile plate above the outsole to provide rigidity on rough trails. They also use a sticky rubber outsole minus the deep lugs found on most other trail runners. The tread is still plenty aggressive and places the foot closer to the ground for a more stable feeling. That said, the Blur is best used for short to medium distance runs. For those training for an endurance run, however, the Vasque Velocity Trail Running Shoe for women is a worthy choice. The Vasque Blur uses a molded EVA midsole with soft crashpad underneath the heel for cushioning and greater stability. It works in combination with a dual density EVA footbed to support the foot. The footbed is removable in case the user prefers to insert their own insole. The Vasque Blur Trail Running Shoe for women also features a microfiber and airmesh upper for breathable comfort during fast-paced runs and warm weather workouts. - Altrec Outdoors
