A high-tech trail runner.

Move over Hoka One One. There’s a trendy new trail runner on the market, and its looks alone warrant your attention.

Last summer, Vasque debuted prototypes of the high-tech Ultra SST, a bold looking running shoe. But there’s more to these kicks than just a vibrant upper. The Ultra SST comes packed with high-tech features. 

While the words “high-tech” and “running shoe” don’t often coincide, the Ultra SST features Vasque’s new ShapeShifter technology, which allegedly makes for a comfortable, cushioned shoe that doesn’t sacrifice performance. Vasque stitched the upper directly to the injection-molded EVA midsole, effectively getting rid of the additional layers found in most other running shoes.

By combining the outsole, the midsole, and the insole, Vasque created a shoe that should protect your foot in rough terrain while still having pretty good trail feel. The Ultra SST comes with a new laces-free closure system from Boa and 6mm of drop.

The Ultra SST will be available at select retailers in March.
