This is the infamous shoe (low cut boot) that was used by DEVGRU (SEAL Team Six) to eliminate Bin Laden.

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 boulder-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.

Questions from our readers.

Question: How does the sizing run on the Vasque Juxt – big or small? It runs a little larger so adjust accordingly.

Question: What are the gaiters that SEAL Team Six wore on top of the Juxt boots?

These were leg gaiters used to keep out debris but allow them to have a lightweight shoe with good traction to move around in.

Remember that they were not hiking long distance with a load on this mission.

Question: What kind of socks do you recommend to wear with the Juxt?

We would use a Smartwool crew sock with a thin liner sock. The Darn Tough sock is issued at BUDS training.

These socks will last a lot longer than any other pair that you own. They are also making a new one that has merino wool.

Use Bodyglide anti-chafe balm on your feet to prevent blisters. I put it on my heel and between my toes and it makes a big difference. You want to put it on your feet before you start to get a hot spot.
