  • 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.

Vasque Juxt: Wonderful on backpacking adventures

Stability over rough and uneven terrain is among the responsibilities of the Juxt’s compression-molded EVA midsole.
