I wore my MTE101 for first time in a while at the weekend and I'd forgotten just how comfie they are :-)

I've still got the first pair of Trail shoes I bought in Jan 2010, which are NB MT875s. Brown and orange, which is a delightful colour-scheme and matches perfectly with all my other kit.;-)

Anyway the important bit is that I've got on very well with them and they've worn very well, although in fairness I don't do that much off-road running. It's horses for courses, though, isn't it. Trial and mostly error. I just got lucky.

I'd say for uneven stuff, i.e. probably not trail, quite low shoes would be more suited, hence WTE101s. Less ankle roll, etc.

Why start a new thread when there's an old one? I pcked up a pair of NB Fresh Foam More Trail v1 going a bit cheap because v2 is coming out. The size 43 has a more roomy toebox than La Sportiva Rebels, which are about 3/4 a euro size short and had to pass to my SO. They fit about the same as Saucony Peregrine 11s. They are well cushioned, very grippy. An alternative to Speedgoats in tread and cushion style. I loved them for their first run. The tread worked well on fir roots and granite. They were also fine on pavement. I shall be using them a lot and I recommend them.

Thanks Steve, I’m in the market for a new pair of trail shoes and New Balance are my preferred brand, so this recommendation is both timely and relevant.

I really do like them a lot. They are more roomy than 1080 v10 of the same size (as one wants for trails.) Having just been out in Peregrines for comparison I'd say they are slightly more roomy than those too.

Got something to say?
