The Amp has been discontinued. If you're looking for something new, check out the best trail running shoes for 2023.
The Vaque Amp is the most versatile, comfortable, dependable, and solid hiking shoe I have ever owned. Yes, it is called a trail running shoe but I only use it for trail hiking. I went through three other shoes in two seasons, and thought I was on a treadmill looking for one with all the right stuff...then I bought the Vasques. The best of the lot. The very best lightweight, low cut trail hiking shoe I've ever felt or walked in!
Materials: gore and more
Use: all season trail hiking and flat walking shoe
Break-in Period: none
Weight: 1-2 pounds...didn't weigh them- but they are size 14 mens
Price Paid: $80
Excellent shoe. I use it for long distance trail running, training, and racing, mostly at the 50km distance. I had real trouble finding a light shoe that still had enough protection to keep my feet comfy on long, technical runs. I have tried A LOT of shoes from many different companies (Montrail, Salomon, adidas, Asics, NB) and the Amp has definitely won me over to Vasque. I have also tried the Velocity and Lightspeed, but prefer the Amp.
Use: Technical trail running
Break-in Period: Minimal
Price Paid: $95
Without a doubt the BEST trail shoe I have ever worn. Stability with cushion - breath well in the heat and drain efficiently in the water crossings. Buy this shoe.
Price Paid: $85
