If you want something with more support and a stiffer sole than a trail sneaker but don't need or want a full blown hiking boot these are a great option to consider.
Sizing. I have wide feet. I also am "natural" walker and runner and only wear mimimal shoes so my feet are actually bigger due to my toes being spread and my feet are muscled. As a result I have high arches. I wear 124E New Balance Minimus shoes that are first versions(V1) and I have a pair of New Balance 610 trail running shoes. These light hikers are exactly like the 610's but have the mid ankle height and heavier duty stitching. I spend a lot of effort making sure the shoes are laced properly with a slight loose feel to the them and had zero blistering on some challenging terrain. The toe box is wide. When I step I spread my toes and grip the ground through the sole. This helps spread the load and saves my joints as well as gives stability.
Durability. These are light weight shoes and I expect that they aren't going to be as wear resistant as more traditional boots. That's why I own heavier duty boots for tougher conditions. So far the stitching is still ok. This past weekend there were a lot of rocks so I am going to be proactive and put some shoe goo on a couple of stitches near the soles that may become issues later on to prevent a chance of a blow out. Also the boots are not designed to carry heavy loads. My combined weight with loaded pack is 230lbs which is I guess actually heavy, and they should hold for at least for another 150 miles or more. My experience is that is acceptable on the price/performance comparison.
Performance. My walking style is on the balls and toes and I grip the trail and stones with my feet and the shoes deform enough to allow this.Read more ›
