Vasque Transistor FS
Vasque is tuning us into their latest release, the Transistor FS tail running shoe. Their newest trail runner is promoted as being in sync (no, not that *NSYNC) with your foot and the ground through extensive research.

Vasque has heavily emphasized the FootSync fit system in their marketing of this trail runner. Vasque promotes the foot system being capable of adjusting the Vasque Transistor FS to a runner's foot and the changing terrain of the trails. Vasque took their research to the athletes that use their footwear and collected feedback. The result is FootSync which is claimed to provide a custom fit.

The design of the Transistor FS consists of an upper made of 'pleather' and nylon mesh, an EVA midsole, and an outsole with slip resistant rubber and deep-set lugs.

On the trails, the shoe shows that Vasque's laborious research paid off. The Transistor FS adapted well to the unevenness of the off-road. A rocky trail can cause an ankle sprain in an instant without the proper trail runner.

The Tansistor FS allows you to feel comfortable which leads to inspired and aggressive workouts. The 22.8 ounces weight glides quickly especially when catching some air over fallen trees gracing the trail. A misstep into water from a creek runoff evaporates quickly and doesn't slow your pace.
