Created specifically for covering long distances, the Vasque Men’s Mindbender trail running shoe offers fit, comfort and design that meet the needs of endurance runners, fast-packers, and thru-hikers alike.
This stable shoe features Vasque’s Perpetuum last, which accommodates the natural spread and movement of the forefoot. This last, combined with a broad toe box, offers long term comfort from the inevitable swelling that takes place during endurance trail running or the 25+ mile days so common to thru-hiking. The Mindbender’s Perpetuum last is formed on a straighter line and often works well for people with flatter feet. A tailored instep helps to lock the foot securely in place to minimize friction and movement. A stable midsole design of dual density EVA rubber with a TPU instep plate and textile forefoot plate provide the necessary support and underfoot protection needed for high mileage endeavors on sketchy terrain. The Vasque Blur outsole combines a well thought out lug pattern with sticky rubber for excellent grip on a variety of surfaces.
An upper built from synthetic Nubuck, Airmesh and TPU weld allows for both durability and breathability with reinforcements in high wear areas. With a 26mm heel and 14mm forefoot, the Pendulum has 12mm of drop.
Sold in pairs, the Vasque Men’s Mindbender trail running shoe is available in men's full and half sizes.
