The Women's Ultra Fastpack III blurs the boundaries between trail running and hiking. With a lightweight abrasion-resistant woven upper and waterproof-breathable FUTURELIGHT™ technology this is the shoe to take you further and faster than ever before.
Women's trail running shoes for speed, stability and comfort
When you're running off road, every stride matters. We've designed a shoe that provides maximum comfort with cushioning while maintaining stability and giving you the extra propulsion you need to get you through an ultra-distance trail run.
A reinforced midsole protects your feet from the rigors of the trail like a rock plate. Get added stabilization from the Surface Control™ rubber outsole that mimics the grip of our Vibram outsoles in other trail-ready shoes. Meanwhile, the minimalist design leaves each a pair of breathable, lightweight shoes that won't have you struggling to pick up your feet.
First there's the Flight VECTIV™, built for maximum speed. If you're expecting to be amongst the medals in your next race, this is what you want on your feet.
For the smoothest and most stable ride there's the VECTIV Infinite. Or if you treasure comfort over everything else, the cushioned trail running shoe VECTIV Enduris is the one for you.
The best shoes for trail runners in rocky terrain
There's a lot of technology that has been packed into every pair of VECTIV™ trail shoes. It's this commitment to delivering the best performance that will give you confidence on any terrain. Gently jog over a gradual slope or dodge boulders and brooks in difficult, technical terrain with the same ease.
The 3.5mm lugs offer supreme grip in all weather conditions, but they've also been designed with the road in mind. If your route takes you through sections of asphalt, there's no need to reach for the hybrids. Get the best of accessibility for any trail.
The 6mm drop is perfect for midsole strikers, reducing the impact on the forefoot that can come from a rugged trail by 10% with every stride. Your body will thank you after a long run. We help you meet nature head on with a range of outdoor gear technologies.
How should trail running shoes fit?
Most runners and footwear experts will suggest you buy trail shoes a half size bigger than your usual fit. That will allow any expansion of your foot muscles when you're running, and make sure you're not kicking the toe box when you're coming down a hill at top speed. Before you head to checkout, take a look at our sizing guide to help determine your fit.
How long should trail running shoes last?
Even the best trail shoes will need to be hung up for retirement one day. Durability depends on the type of terrain you're tackling, but you should be able to get 300 to 500 miles out of them.
For some that'll be a year, while others may tackle that in a few months. No matter how long you have them, we're confident that by the time you've gone the distance in a pair of VECTIV trail shoes, you'll be racing back for more.
