User Review: Vasque Men's Velocity
Price Paid: $85
This was first pair of trail shoes after years of running on road and trails with traditional running shoes. In reading the other comments, I must also agree that they squeak, the large treads are prone to separating (especially on the edges of the shoe), and they don't really qualify as motion control shoes. I wear orthotics and need a good stability or motion control shoe. These were recommended to me, but didn't perform. With only over little more than 100 miles on them, the control is weak (I pronate in them).
Also, I have a low volume on the wide side. The laces are such that the two sides of the running shoe almost join over the tongue. Hard to explain, but the width is funny, in short. Also, given the abuse that these shoes should be able to put up with, I am surprised that the laces, after getting caught on a chain ring (bicycle), pretty much disintegrated...
My physical therapist commented that she didn't think there were really any decent stability type trail runners. Maybe she's correct.
