Technical mountain trail running shoe

The VJ XTRM is designed for extreme trails and fell running. With a full length rock-plate you are protected from sharp hard rocky terrain but with cushioning units in both the heel and forefoot the comfort is significant whilst retaining enough sensitivity for you to be able to feel whats going on and respond rapidly. With a medium last and extra space within the toe box we have been surprised at the range of foot shapes and widths that the XTRM can accommodate without any loss of fit, support or performance. This is partially enabled by the uppers blend of Kevlar and Polyester which doesn't stretch and also helps with durability.

VJ was founded in 1981 with a view to providing runners with  light weight and fast shoes for all circumstances. Since then customer commentary and continuous trial runs by the VJ team and development based on this feedback means they continue to offer light weight shoes, which at the same time protect your feet and have #thebestgripontheplanet. This is achieved by a combination of a winning sole and upper construction that benefits from the following features:


Butyl-rubber gives amazing grip without spikes! Superior Contact tread patterning guarantees you the best grip to be imagined. The lugs are placed to provide good grip but are spread far enough apart to easily shed mud, clay, snow and rocks. In the middle of the out-sole there is a special track from toes to heel providing better grip on wet terrain. VJ's test runners say the grip is the best you can have without metal studs, on wet polished limestone sections of The Spine these shoes have been seen to out-perform competitors. 


When running on extreme terrain your foot should stay still within your shoe. Even when everything is wet the inflexible upper material provides a snug and comfortable fit for your feet so you can safely move and turn wherever and whenever you want with a stable feeling. The rubber FITLOCK supports your arch and protects the inside of your foot against punches from beneath.

Tested by Up and Under staff and Run, Walk, Crawl staff and competitors on a Ultra Tour De Cymru (South Wales 100) recce the response to the VJ XTRM was overwhelming positive.

Rob Smith - Offa's Dyke In One Sitting - A new unsupported FKT

I set out from the official start (or end) of the Offa’s Dyke National Trail in Prestatyn with the intention of running (jogging, hiking and a lot of hobbling) – the 177 miles to the other end of the trail at Sedbury Cliffs, just outside Chepstow. I did finally get there, just over 3 days later, setting what is, for now, a fastest known time for a self-supported completion of the trail.
