Great shoes- I actually bought the old dark blue/"tangerine" style because I like the look better. These are absolutely fantastic shoes for trail running: nice hard rubber on the toe, low to the ground. My ankles feel nice and secure in these. And they last forever. I'm a heavy runner (5'10'' 190 lbs), I run about 18 miles a week on trails, and my last pair lasted over a year. I probably wear my shoes too long, but my New Balance 998's (road running shoes) don't last half that long.

Gear of the Year Mistake - This is one cheap shoe. I bought it after it received the "Gear of the Year" Award for 2003. What a mistake! Sure, its light but that just about covers it. Arch support is non-existent, biomechanic functions are flawed, material durability is questionable, and result is a terribly cheap award winning shoe. Not suitable for Appalachian trails.

Great shoes - These shoes are extremely comfortable on my feet. The stability in the heel area is excellent. The front of the shoe is extremely comfortable. My favorite pair in years.

Vasque Velocity Rates High - This is a very comfortable shoe. Great fit and flexible, not stiff. Could wear right out of the box with minimal break in period.

Great shoes - I had been stuck in a rut of Nike's running shoes which were okay in the wide variety but a pain to find... So I started poking around and found Zappos and which led me to the Vasque velocity. The shoes are awesome I really love them, they were comfortable for my somewhat wide feet right out of the box. Zappos was great giving me a free shipping upgrade just because so I got the shoes on Friday after ordering on Weds. I have been singing the praises of my new vasques as well as Zappos > I recommend both highly. I can't wait to get them on the disk golf course.

Brands I'd also recommend: These shoes are awesome so other vasque shoes

Nice shoe for distance.... I ran my leg of the Canadian Death race in these shoes - good stability, not bad to run in, cost me one toenail, primarily due to my not cutting it back at the start. They're "Miled out" now, but still the first shoes I reach for when I leave the house - comfortable, great tread wear (assuming you are trail running...) and I think they look pretty snazy. They come up a little higher on the ankle then my regular runners (Saucony, nike, asics) but I found the extra height made them a little more stable - probably saved my ankles a few times. Highly reccomended by me, I look forward to trying the lightspeed (If I can find it in CANADA - Come on Zappo's, ship them to the Great White North!)

Brands I'd also recommend: I never tried another pair I would say are comparable.

I have a wide foot and a high instep, I work standing 8 hours a day and I don't own a car - when I want to go somewhere, I walk. I walk several miles a day. These shoes leave my feet feeling good at the end of the day. The traction is also great, I feel safe wearing these on snow and light ice (not smooth/glare ice). They also look great, I get compliments every day.

SHARP LOOKING & COMFORTABLE SHOES! I bought those shoes for my husband to have something for our walks and to go with jeans as well. He LOVES them and is getting many compliments on how they look. He says they feel great, since they come in Wide sizes, he was able to get the right fitting shoes he always wanted for everyday wear.

Must be European, sizes run small - A great shoe by looks but I had to return it because their supposed wide shoe was anything but. Can't say anything more because I had to return the shoes since they didn't fit.

Not for wide feet - Perhaps Vasque is new to us folks with truly wide feet. In NB, I wear a 13 EEEE. And (e.g.) I know I will never be able to wear a Reebok. That's ok, they just don't make a last for my feet. But plenty of others do. Saucony, Timberland, Propet. I just have to put Vasque on the list of shoes that will probably never work for my big 'ol dogs.

Just bought my third pair for hiking I do in the High Peaks of the NY Adirondacks and on CO 14ers. They are immediately comfortable and require no break-in. I also like the roomy toe box. \r\nMy favorite feature is the soft rubber compound grippy sole, which gives me great traction on steep rock.

This is a great shoe! I like them so much that this is the second pair I have purchased. I wore the first pair for about two years and finally the soles started to wear smooth so I decided to replace them with the same model. My first pair was a bit snug because I use Superfeet insoles in them so I went up a size this pair. They are very comfortable and durable. I have used them for everything fro running to competitive shooting and I was never disappointed!

Gosh I loved these shoes. Went through 4 pairs of them, adding up to a good 1300 miles of trail running. I tried the VST model once Vasque moved on from this one, but it is just not the same. I have been trying to find old stock of the original Velocity in my size but have had no luck.

Pleased beyond belief - Bought these for a fast/light hike through the White Mountains. Right out of the box, fit was tremendous - as the laces get really snug and pull the shoe tight around the foot. I bought a size 12 (to leave a finger width at the toes), and the fit was/is great. I am looking forward to some trail runs in these babies.

Bomber fit for wide feet comfortable for the long haul - I rotated four pairs of the Velocity during a 37 hour run of the 122 mile Northville-Placid Trail in August of 2005. I also used them at the Wakely Dam Ultra 32.6 mile race in 2004. Outstanding performer, especially for NE woods running! It has great protection for your toes and ankles, and just the right amount of torsional rigidity for rough, rooty, and rocky trails. These shoes, (w/Sole heat-moldable insoles) new Wrightsock’s, and Vaseline every 30 miles, and I didn't get a single blister. My only criticism would be that the outsole, although very durable, doesn't grip wet rock nearly as well as some of the stickier compounds like those on La Sportiva’s shoes and others (which does wear noticeably faster).

Good, decent shoe when considering the reasonable price. Performs as expected for a shoe in this class and price range. Would have scored higher if there was at least some attempt at an arch support.
