Just picked-up a pair of Vasque Blur SL trail runners from a locally grown outdoors store.
The SL at 12.6 oz listed weight feels light out of the box. I also noticed the roomy toe box upon first trying them on.
After about the first 50 miles of mixed trail running & hiking I am sold.
They seem to have that light & responsive trail runner feel similar to = wt. inov8 models. However when hiking them they have a solid feel with nice cushioning too.
Traction in excellent, toe has just enough material for protection of rocks & sticks without over kill & extra weight. Laces are nice an stay tied easily. Breathability is high along with quick drainage when the shoe gets wet.
I tend to be very picky with trail shoes...and these so far are keepers!
