Vasque Earns “Best In Dirt” From Trail Runner Magazine

The new Vasque Mercury trail running shoe has been honored by Trail Runner Magazine. In its May, 2007 edition, Trail Runner awarded the Mercury its top honor as “Best in Dirt”.

Red Wing, MN. - The new Vasque Mercury trail running shoe has been honored by Trail Runner Magazine. In its May, 2007 edition, Trail Runner awarded the Mercury its top honor as “Best in Dirt”. The magazine's trail tested review put fourteen of the most advanced and specialized new trail running shoes to the test as the Mercury came out on top.

The new Mercury is based on the award winning Vasque Blur outsole and last which provides a straight, low profile platform with ample room in the toe box for comfort on longer runs. A medially posted midsole and TPU instep cradle create a very stable shoe for runners who tend to pronate. A TPU injected textile forefoot plate strikes the perfect balance between natural foot flex and light weight underfoot protection.

According to Brian Hall, Product Manager for Vasque, “It's an honor to receive the recognition from a publication that is so core to the sport. The shoes they selected to test were all great choices and to have the Mercury come out on top is terrific. We agree with the editors, this could be Vasque's finest all-around offering.”

Trail Running Magazine, one dirty magazine as their masthead states, is dedicated to the sport of trail running. Written by trail runners for trail runners, it is the voice of the sport.

Based in Red Wing, MN, Vasque is a leading manufacturer of performance outdoor footwear. For more information about Vasque's products and retailers, visit or call 800-224-4453.
