New Balance MT101 Trail Shoe Available at Running Warehouse

Just got notification last night that the much anticipated New Balance MT101 trail shoe is now in stock at Running Warehouse (price = $67.50, 2nd day free shipping, plus an additional 10% off if purchased through Runblogger). The MT101 is the successor to the popular MT100, and is one of the lighter trail shoes currently on the market at 7.2 oz in men’s size 9. It still has a reasonably large heel-toe drop (10mm), but rides close to the ground, which may offset this a bit (18mm heel, 8mm forefoot from what I have read). The MT101 is on my short list of footwear options for when I run my first trail ultra next March (details on that coming soon!).

I should be getting a review pair soon, so stay tuned for more information!

In the meantime, here’s a thorough comparison between the MT100 and MT101 on the Run 100 Miles blog.

For an interesting approach to reducing the heel height of the MT100 or MT101, check out what my friend Tuck had a cobbler do to his MT100′s: http://yelling-stop.blogspot.com/2010/09/modified-new-balance-mt100s.html.
