The Vasque Juxt has lots to offer at a low price, earning our Best Buy Award in 2017. It's a great choice for day hiking and light backpacking when avoiding water and rain storms. It's comfortable, lightweight, and versatile. With breathable construction and a clean, low-key look, this shoe is casual enough to hang in town for everyday use. This model fits average to narrow feet well, and wide sizes are available for folks that need more forefoot room.
This product combined price and performance the best of any model. If you're willing to pay more, however, you can take performance to another level. Our Editors' Choice winner, The North Face Ultra 110 GTX, is a better all around performer for hiking and backpacking in mixed conditions. And the HOKA ONE ONE Tor Summit WP is our new comfort king, featuring an extremely comfortable sole. That said, we quite like the Juxt, as it is more than enough shoe for the vast majority of terrain and conditions the average hiker encounters.
