  • That's a pretty cool colour, looks fast ;) Will be interested to hear what you think of them when you have had a chance to go for a run. And to insert images in a post, just click the third icon from the right ("Insert image") in the menu and paste …
  • It should be called the Altra One One ;)
  • Not a recommendation as such, but like you I run in MT110 and love them, but am also hesitant to use them for my first 50-miler this summer. I've had some problems with a foot during fall and winter and can't have that flaring up during a 10-hour ru…
  • @outdoorkinetics: That was surprisingly early! Checked with a few other stores (Wiggle among them) yesterday, but no sign of them there as yet. Will wait for more colour options, and spring :)
  • Well, we don't know whether the outsole has been modified in any way since the original version; it looks the same and is still sporting the REVlite midsole, so probably no alterations. I for one am happy they keep it minimal and not go the Hoka-rou…
  • This certainly looks like a proper update of the original when compared to what New Balance are doing to the MT00 in the v2 version. I was hoping for a little wider toebox in the MR00v2, but it is the same NL-0 last so that obviously has not happene…
  • No worries, I hope you will enjoy them as much as we do! Though I am a bit jealous; can't get hold of the 110W here in Europe (as far as I know), and it will cost an arm and a leg to import it from the US. That said, I ran through last winter in the…
  • It might be worth noting here that most of the NB minimal shoes run small in size, and thus require a larger than normal size for most runners. However, this is the Winter version of the 110's, and while I have not tried it myself a commenter in the…
  • I run a lot in the R10v2's, but unfortunately I can't compare it to the 730's as I have never tried them (they are virtually non-existent in Europe), but I would be surprised if the 10v2's were to offer softer cushioning than the 730's. Actually, ar…
  • @Bryan: After your disappointment with the Altra One, just get the 138s and go for a run already ;)  With all this Black Friday craziness happening over there you should be able to get a good price on them. @Peter: Yes, I reckon that there is always…
  • That's nice to hear Peter, but may I ask why you opted against the 138s? Too minimal or strange colourway?
  • I've had my eyes on them too but still have not seen enough of a price drop to validate a purchase (yes, I am rather short on cash these days). I am still to make up my mind as to whether I will look like a clown (more than usual that is) or if I wi…
  • I just noticed that the model has resurfaced at newbalance.com, albeit in only one colourway, so I suppose that the rumours about its death were somewhat exaggerated. You are absolutely right; the amount of New Balance models in the minimus line alo…
  • Alright, slightly off topic here :) I just meant that the Gore-tex membrane doesn't seem to last very long in neither running nor hiking shoes - my girlfriend is not very hard on her shoes, yet they don't stay watertight for more than a few months. …
  • Yes, the MO10 that I mention above is the multi-sport version of the old MT10, and they have obviously upgraded to Gore-tex in the upper now. Looks like a nice shoe, but in my experience Gore-tex in shoes just doesn't work. One would expect to see a…
  • @tangovoxtrot, not that it really matters to me whether you like the MR10v2's or not, but I am rather happy that they put your negative expectations to shame :) I have run some 550 k's (340 miles) in my pair, and I am very pleased to report that the…
  • I find the fit excellent; neither too tight nor too loose. But then I fitted them without socks and have no intention to ever wear socks in them (despite the smell :)). I could use a very thin sock I suppose, but it would probably shred within days …
  • I suppose that the WAF is close to zero when it comes to smelly shoes ;)
  • Coincidentally I've run some 280 miles in my pair now, since getting them in April. Yes, they do smell horribly, but not worse than the MT10v2's,110's or any other of my shoes. Bad smell is really the only drawback to going sockless, and I just leav…
  • Way to prove me wrong, Pete ;)
