suffice to say I have three NB shoes and i just looked at the MO10GT (GoreTex), which is very nice, just wish it was made local.
The other peeve that i have and it is minor is that i now will own three Minimalist shoes and they are a bit pricey and have a limited shelf life. The cross trainers should last longer since they are worn inside. To NB's credit they have done a good job designing shoes to fit each niche and activity.
1. x-trainer MX20
2. Runner MR10
3. Trail Shoe MO10 (near future)
For those not in the know the New Balance Style code # is this:
MO - mens outdoor
MX - Mens crosstrainer
MT - Mens Trail
MR - Mens running
then comes the color code so BR might me Black and Red or WB might be White and blue.
then they stick on the version number after that like (Version) 2. Also the Zero and O's look the same so that can add confusion when typing in and doing searches.
so style # MT10BS2 = mens trail 10 black-silver version 2
I rated 4 stars as I think this is a great shoe, but I'd like to have a little little more traction. On surfaces such as basketball courts, laminate, or smooth finish concrete, I feel this shoe lacks a little grip. It seems like the tread pattern is alright, but that the compound or surface finish of the compound isn't as sticky as I might like. The shoe is very light and airy, and I think it has enough support for the movements I intend to do with it. It provides more lateral movement stability and control than fivefigers, which I was using before this shoe. The shoe seems to fit fairly true to size, and laces up snugly on my foot. I'm only a few workouts in, but it seems like the construction will hold up well to indoor use.
Like: Weight, stability (for what the shoe is), minimal heel to toe drop, openness and breathability, looks, balance.
Dislike: I might like additional grip from the tread.
recommend for: crossfit, indoor gym work
I've put a ~3 months of weightlifting-centric crossfit on these shoes now. They've held up well. As an additional dislike, I'd say that I feel the inward angle of and extra room/material on the toe is a bit extreme. I'm not sure if I could claim that the shoe slows my sprints, but I don't think the sole outline is quite right for running, at least for my form. The top-down view of the shoe doesn't suggest the extreme angling, but the bottom-up view (showing the sole of the shoe) does. I wouldn't remove another star, but I would revise my purchase, having this experience.
After 9 months, I'd say the traction is only a concern on surfaces which would be slick for any shoe; it's not an issue on tractioned rubber (e.g. diamond plate patterned), astroturf, asphalt, or textured concrete (e.g. outside, or sidewalk). A stickier compound may still be an improvement. I still see the sole profile as a bit odd, though it's a 4-star shoe. I use this shoe in a hot, dry, often dusty environment.
Update 3: After almost a year and a half, the shoe is holding up fine. No concerns over build quality / durability with appropriate use (I could see rope climbing and all-terrain work tearing the shoe up).
The New Balance is a great minimal shoe for my uses – light jogging, walking, and for travel. It is very light, nearly neutral heel height, and excellent grip. I find it much better than the Saucony in terms of grip on hard surfaces (cement, asphalt, etc) but still get enough feel of the road. Without having to give up much in terms of read feel, you gain a lot in terms of stability and durability. I did switch out the laces for lock laces (elastic laces).
The shoes travel very well also – the heel completely flattens against the top of the shoe and makes packing a breeze.
