New Balance is driven to make the finest shoes for the same reason athletes lace them up: to achieve the very best.

The New Balance 101 is a low-profile, ultra-lightweight trail racer that combines natural running technology with a minimal design for unsurpassed comfort and responsiveness on and off the trails. Colors: Black + Grey + Purple

    Currently using them for running and crossfit and they work well for both.

    The bottom sole is much more rugged than your typical light shoe.

    I'm a fitness professional that lives in athletic shoes all day. Regular shoes are so bulky, so about 2 yrs ago, I started making the switch to lighter shoes. Well, I recently came across these and must say they are awesomely comfortable and very, very light. The bottom sole is much more rugged than your typical light shoe. I haven't put them to the trail test yet, but am excited to try it out.

    I have a neutral gait and have a slightly wider than normal foot and they are not too tight. I love that the shoes do not direct my knees in or out with walking.

    If you've been wearing normal athletic shoes, these may take a little time to get used to if your feet are not strong. If wearing a light shoe is new to you, let your feet get used to them before extensive running or plyometrics.

    Great shoe, fits very well and looks good on the feet!

    I've been running in these for a couple of months now. I average about 5 - 6 miles a run. I initially bought it because I wanted a light and good-looking hiking shoe. It was great on the hike, and I feel like I run faster in these than in my usual Asics shoe. This is the lightest running shoe I've ever owned, and I didn't buy insoles for them like I usually do since I wanted to try out the newer, lighter trend in running shoes.

    I don't know if it's a placebo-effect or not, but I feel like I can run farther and longer in these... and my run time is a bit faster these days, though I can't say if that's because of the shoe or if I'm just getting quicker. When I run, I usually run on paved road / sidewalk, and occasionally run on grass. I haven't attempted to do any trail running in these (only trail hiking).

    My feet are medium width. One thing I noticed was when I wore thin socks, I felt a slight rubbing on my baby toe after the first few miles. This was easily fixed by wearing thicker socks when running longer distances.

    I'd recommend these for walking, hiking, and running.

    I absolutely love these shoes. I am not a big runner, but I hop on the treadmill and jog a couple of times a week. These are so comfortable and light. I recently paid $120 for the new Asics Gel Kayano's and barely wear them anymore. I would recommend these to anyone!

    I am in love love love with this shoe. I'm currently ordering my 7th pair! If NB ever discontinues this shoe, I will surely die, or stop running. These shoes, actually, have created a monster with me... I used to HATE running, but no more! I run in these on the street or on trails and they just totally rock. I have no pain anywhere when I run, due to my improved technique (chi/pose/barefoot/whatever you call it) and these shoes' ability to just let me run. I have a medium-wide foot and am a bigger-size gal (5'9", 185#) and these shoes are the best thing to happen to my overall fitness. Seriously.

    Love these shoes! Great price. Crossfit is a varation between lifting and running. I was diffently looking for something that was flat enough so I didnt have to change my shoes in the middle of a Workout. These are perfect for running and lifting. Tried the Invo 8s they are so narrow.... These are better for people with wide feet.

    Great every day shoes. Light, "airy", and just what I was looking for. New Balance customer service is great, too. I could not be more pleased.

    These shoes are lightweight and allow the foot to move naturally. However, they do not seem to be as breathable as the WT100 and they're just not as comfortable to run in. I hope the next model is a little more like the 100. These are definitely an affordable option for folks who would like minimalist-type shoes for running without spending over $100. One note, I did have to order 1/2 size bigger than normal.

    I was looking for a pair of lightweight shoes with lots of tread. I do dog agility and need support and grip. I love the NB shoes! They fit well, feel good, and offer the lightweight support I was looking for.
