Vasque took the middle ground by balancing weight and function when it created the Men's Pendulum Trail Running Shoe. This minimalist meets rugged runner shoe offers the cushioning and protection needed you need for rocky trails with the breathability and lightness you want for staying cool and moving quickly. The seamless mesh upper promotes airflow to keep your feet cool in hot weather and on intense runs. EVA provides lightweight, yet long lasting, cushioning, and the Flux Foam footbed cushions your step without tacking on bulk. The segmented TPU rock guard flexes naturally for protection that won't restrict you, and the Vasque Visualizer outsole provides reliable traction and durability. As the lightest, most breathable, and most versatile trail shoe in Vasque's lineup, the Pendulum gets it just right for long distance missions on long trails or fast hill running in the mountains.
