At the back end of 2016 I was lucky enough to be sent a pair of the new Arc’teryx Norvan VT trail running shoes to review. With some aggressive looking vibram soles and some innovative new ideas in the design, I was excited to get them muddy and out on my local trails and fields.

Some heavy racing and recovery in early 2017 delayed my progress a little but after over a hundred kilometres of trail running, in some of the wettest and muddiest conditions UK winter could throw at me, I was finally able to nail my colours to the mast and share my thoughts about them over at

So if you are in the market for a new pair of trail running shoes, you may well want to consider Arc’teryx Norvan VT trail running shoes. Please be aware that my review is written based upon my personal experiences of running in these shoes. Footwear is such a personal thing that I would encourage anybody considering them to use my thoughts as guidance, try them on yourself and draw their own conclusions.
