I've seen some positive comments about this new model, but I have some personal reservations about the shift of many of New Balance's models to the more extreme "minimal" end of the spectrum. The HI-REZ looks very comfy, but scarily minimal. The upper does look very different from that of the MT00.
With the Minimus Road 10 evolved into essentially a 4mm drop version of the the Minimus Road Zero, I'm waiting to see what is going to fill the void between something firmer like the old MR10 and a cushier shoe like Saucony's Kinvara.
I'm curious about the HI-REZ, but I'm looking more for a versatile Swiss Army knife of a shoe rather than something more narrowly specialist. Just going by appearance, I can't help but think that the HI-REZ looks more like a concept shoe rather than something that I would spend a lot of time actually using. I'm open to being proved wrong on that though. I'm more eagerly waiting to see what the new Road 1010 and the 730v2 delivers. They look promising to me.
