Who should buy the Vasque Juxt
Choosing the Juxt as your trail companion translates to cranking up your mileage calculator in something extra secure. Purchase it if:
- Hardy backpacking shoes are more appropriate for the trails you tackle.
- You need a pair that provides a relaxed fit in just a couple of short hikes.
- Shoes that preserve your gait and balance are what you collect.
- You hike in arid conditions, and you don't want to end up with sweaty feet.
Who should not buy it
If you prefer hiking shoes with a roomier toe box, skip the Juxt for the Satoru Trail LT Low. You're also better off sporting the Salewa Mountain Trainer 2 GTX if your go-to trails lead to rocky streams and creeks.
The featherweight Juxt
Critics and regular hikers alike are quite impressed with the Vasque Juxt's extreme lightness. One of them even felt like he was wearing his tennis shoes throughout the hike.
Among Vasque's comfiest
Many reviewers, including professional ones, adore the Juxt for its astonishing level of comfort. And the cooler part: this remarkable plushness becomes available after a very short break-in period.
A boon for the unsteady feet
A combination of great support (arch) and stability awaits those who would give the Vasque Juxt a shot. Scores of hikers swear by this, stating that rugged terrain is a no match for this bad boy.
Hikers in droves dislike the Juxt’s narrow confines, particularly around the toe zone.
Numerous adventurers say that the shoe’s overall build is simply tank-like. They hail the shoe as a justifiable purchase because of this.
Stick to dry ground
Many of its critical reviews speak of the shoe's subpar traction. They said they often slipped and lost footing on wet beds of rock.
Just another brilliant summer shoe
Gear bloggers find the confines of this Vasque hiking shoe amazingly breathable.
Operation Neptune Spear
The Vasque Juxt was the shoe used by the Navy SEAL Team 6 during the Bin Laden neutralization operation. The operation is widely known by the code name: Neptune Spear.
Vasque Juxt: Wonderful on backpacking adventures
Stability over rough and uneven terrain is among the responsibilities of the Juxt’s compression-molded EVA midsole. It is engineered to strike a balance between cushioning and ground feel, giving adventurers lasting plushness underfoot while hauling a loaded pack. Also helping the shoe bear the wearer's weight is the shoe's hybrid stabilizer located around the arch.
