2010 Fall Running Shoe Review Homepage

As a cushioned stability trainer, the Vectana 2 is highly supportive, so much so that one neutral runner on our test team says that she could feel the shoe “guiding me laterally,” while another comments that the support is too much but probably good for a runner who needs it. The update has a lengthened medial dual-density midsole, wider platform and new “bunion window” in the upper and bolstered forefoot cushioning. The structured, firm midsole makes the Vectana one of the most stable shoes tested.
