Best use: VJ have kept true to their roots with the Irock 3, they haven’t made any massive changes to this already amazing shoe. If you are looking for a shoe that can tackle the UK’s worst fells then you need look no further. The Irock has everything you could want. It’s incredibly grippy, highly durable and just enough cushioning to go a very long way in.
Upper: Kevlar woven into the upper of the Irock 3 give it incredible durability, ideal for bashing through heather or dragging through bogs. They are made on VJ’s narrow last making them a snug and secure fit. VJ’s signature FITLOCK banding over the inside of the shoe further increases its hold of your foot even when contouring.
Midsole: A minimal midsole offers just enough cushioning without compromising on the ground feel and responsiveness. the perfect blend for being in the hills with.
Outsole: Known for their grip that just doesn’t slip, this is thanks to the super-deep 8mm Butyl rubber lugs that dig into even the deepest of mud. The red and black have become a very common sight on hillsides across the country. They must be great as the Irock is OCR world champion (2014-2017) and sky runner Jonathan Albon’s choice for racing.
