Under Armour OPS Tactical Training Shoes Review by Will
I’m on the SWAT team and these boots are freaking light! 2 problems though, with these being so light they get soaked the other problem is that when transitioning from wet grass to smooth surfaces they become slippery. They are more like a tennis shoes. The UA Ops trainer shoes look great and are extemely quiet on hard surfaces. They are actually the most comfortable shoes ive ever worn.

Vasque Juxt review
I normally wear an 11 or 11.5. 11 for a sport shoe that I want to fit snug enough to provide foot support. 11.5 usually for more casual wear. I read the reviews and saw they tended to run about 1/2 size large. I bought these intially in size 11 and then tried a 10.5. I have a thin foot. I like the shoe in general but it just didn’t fit my foot in a size 11 without a hiking sock. Just a little to long and loose to provide any real support. I really don’t want a pair of hiking shoes that won’t fit with a lightweight sock. So, these shoes would be great for someone with a mid to large volume foot. Just didn’t work for me.

Vasque Men’s Juxt Multisport Shoe review
I do a lot of hiking and have always stuck with boots until now! Last week I went out on a 15 mile day hike and my feet were killing me by the time I was done. The hike consisted of a lot of bolder-jumping and by the end of the day I could hardly get my feet up high enough to clear them. I figured they have to make hiking shoes. Something lightweight and then I discovered these. WOW! They are incredibly light and honestly, some of the most comfortable shoes I have ever had. I did 12 miles the other night (night hiking) and ended up running with them for about 6 miles. Incredibly comfortable! Couldn’t have done that in boots if I wanted to.

I’m impressed and blown away by these shoes. Fit perfectly.

Update: A few months in with this shoes has been awesome. They really are high quality, ultra light hiking shoes. I’ve already put about 50 miles on these puppies and they look brand new! Holding up very, very well. I uploaded a photo for you all.

UPDATE 2: These are without a doubt the best hiking shoes I’ve got. I absolutely love them! Since the last update I’ve put another 30 miles on the Vasque Juxt and no blisters, no problem with quality. Perfectly comfortable. They dry out very easily. Whenever they finally give in to the punishment I put them through, I will buy another pair. They are my favorite shoe.

Question: How does the sizing run on the Vasque Juxt? It runs a little large so plan accordingly.
