ONly reason they are not a 5star is bcs they don't have a tongue holder (laces through the tongue to hold it in place).
**Update (May 19th, 2013), they don't need a tongue holder the tongue stays in place so I am up-ing my score to a 5.
**Lacing must be tight to keep your feet from moving around in the shoe when running, but once you tighten them they are great.
3/25/13 UPDATE: I've had the shoes for 5 months and wear them almost every day. They have good traction and seem very durable. If you're a 200-pounder like me or just like a soft ride, you'll want more cushioning. I've added heel/arch supports, as I do with all my shoes. They don't stretch much--if you have wide feet be sure to get the 2E or 4E width.
10/17/13 MT610v2 UPDATE: The above review and update were for version 1 of this shoe. The MT610v2, which I bought recently, is a much different shoe. The pair I got was made in Indonesia, not the U.S. The fabric is different, and thinner. This, and the fact that the solid bumper at the front of the shoe doesn't wrap around as far, means that the v2's will probably wear out sooner than the original version. The tread design is also different--more aggressive, with deep indentations that should provide good traction, but will also pick up lots of mud, wet leaves and snow if you wear them in wet or snowy conditions.
For the v2, I bought the gray/orange color, 4E width. These are still nice looking, lightweight, lightly cushioned, comfortable shoes (but see my advice in the first 2 paragraphs for getting the right width). For me, the new tread design and lack of a wrap-around bumper limits their usefulness. They're best suited for use on dry ground.
I bought two pairs of these MT610v2 shoes and I was extremely disappointed. I found they had moved the arch back and ruined the shoe for me. This does not mean they would be uncomfortable for everyone, but they certainly were for me.
I have been running and hiking in New Balance shoes for several years and I could always rely on the same arch support that fit my feet perfectly. But now, on the MT610v2, they moved the arch back towards the heel about a half inch. Now it feels like my socks are bunched up under my heel. This is really upsetting to me, because my previous two pairs, the old MT610's, were not this way at all. I don't know why they moved the arch back, but I can no longer wear their shoes. I wore the MT610v2 shoes for 2 hours and had blisters on the front edge of my heels. I hated them. I love the way they look, but I cannot wear an uncomfortable shoe.
I now have 210 miles on my shoes, which includes flat ground walking/running, trail running and hiking, off-trail talus scrambles, and (not exactly recommended) clawing up a 40 degree icy snowfield in the Mummy range. The shoes are very light, have an incredible range of motion, great traction, and allow for excellent terrain-sensitivity and balance thanks to the minimal padding in the mid-foot and fore-foot.
In terms of durability, I'm pleased they have held up this long given the terrain I have covered (~70 of the 210 miles off trail, much of that on rough granite and sharp quartzite talus). As of today, there is some slight tread separation near the ball of my left foot but it looks like some super-glue will fix that. Very surprisingly (because it seemed so thin and soft), the tread looks almost as good as new.
WARNING: I found these run almost one full size small--instead of 12EEEE, I opted wisely for the 13EEEE.
Update: I tossed my shoes into the trash today after patching with super glue @210 miles and putting on another pretty rough 100 miles. The shoes ended up gradually failing in the mesh around the big toe of my left foot and smaller toes of my right foot, which I couldn't easily patch. The tread was still acceptably good, though somewhat degraded, at this point.
For those whinging about the lack of cushioning or durability in these, they feel like armored tanks compared to the likes of the Minimus Zero, which I've been trying out as well on the trails. I've got two more pairs of 610v2s on hand, and I was reminded when putting on a new pair today of how they feel too narrow at first (though they break in considerably, as previously mentioned).
