Product Information for Vasque

Product Description

From narrow niche to broad-based believers. Mindbender took people by surprise. Created specifically as a long-distance warrior, the stable but agile Mindbender quickly caught on with a much wider audience.

But let's start at the beginning: there's nothing harder on the feet than endurance trail running. While the terrain constantly changes throughout a race, so do a runner's feet. To accommodate the natural spread and movement of the forefoot, not to mention the inevitable swelling during distance events, the Mindbender features the Perpetuum last coupled with a wider toe box.

The shoe was promptly embraced by the distance community, going on to set the women's course record at the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc. But of course stability, agility, and fit appeal to more than just the ultra crowd. Today the Mindbender is worn by a wide range of trail runners, thru-hikers, fast packers, and general comfort seekers alike.

26mm heel/14mm forefoot/12mm drop

Weight: 9.9 oz(Size 7)

Fit Profile: The Mindbender is built on the Perpetuum last. This last is formed on a straighter line for people with flatter feet, with a broad toe box, tailored instep, and a lower heel volume than the Arc Tempo's medium volume. The last is stable and comfortable for going the distance, and the broad toe box is ideal for endurance activities because it allows the forefoot to expand naturally. A tailored instep locks the foot securely in place to minimize foot movement, reducing friction. The Perpetuum last works great on your feet all day, whether running, hiking, or standing.

Solid walking shoe from Vasque
By LibbyGH, from Santa Cruz Mountains CA | May 24, 2013
The Mindbender by Vasque is well suited to walking, hiking or being on your feet all day. It has thick, somewhat rigid soles with plenty of support on the footbed, and ample toe room (one of my favorite things about Vasque shoes). This shoe fits and feels a lot like my 4-year old Vasque Blur running shoes, and is comfortable out of the box. Personally I prefer a slightly less rigid sole for running, but the Mindbender is a great multipurpose shoe.

A+ shoe!!
By Stephanie, from Austin, TX | December 03, 2012
This is my first Vasque purchase. I am so pleased with the shoe. I am not a runner but wanted a shoe that I could wear for hours and hike around various cities. The color is great, the fit is perfect. No break in period at all. I am a full size 10, normal width foot and this shoe fit exactly how I like shoes to fit. I travel overseas every so often and this shoe will be perfect for exploring cities and trails. No need for a heavier hiking shoe. Highly recommend.
