  • I dare say that you will not get many answers through this thread as it has been rather "dead" for some time now - I guess there are but a few of us who actually use the MR10v2, and the rest of the forum members are not likely to enter the thread at…
  • Sorry that you didn't really like it, MaxPax, but we are all different and want different things from a shoe. It's funny you should mention the rock collecting outsole, as that was the first thing I noticed about the shoe; I have a gravel road that …
  • Maverick, I am afraid that none of the shoes in the Minimus collection are in any way waterproof - I have most versions and am consequently not afraid of wet feet ;) Actually, I never use socks when I run, and once wet it doesn't bother me at all. L…
  • I've been day hiking in my normal minimalist shoes - FiveFingers and Minimus Trail - but then on very soft forest ground. For this summer's week long hike with medium heavy backpacks I plan on walking in my NB MT110's; the have enough cushioning and…
  • Well, I can't say it bothers me really, but I do notice that they are a lot less snug in the upper than most of my other Minimus shoes. I may have wider feet than you though, so in a way I like not being restricted by the shoe. Doesn't seem to affec…
  • Good news, Peter, and I hope spring is coming to NH soon; you seem to have had the same type of late winter weather as here in Sweden. The snow is finally starting to clear though, and I now have some 30+ miles in the MR10v2's. Despite getting the o…
  • The upper is obviously much more comfortable than in the MT00's. Just got a severe craving for these! http://minimalistrunningshoes.org/balance-minimus-hi-rez-review
  • I have not really reflected upon the significance of the placement of the logo before, but you might just be right about the upper/sole distinction. I had a look in my MT10's and MR10v2's, who are both in the official Minimus lineup, and they have t…
  • I certainly hope that it is a typo on the NB site, otherwise they are overusing the "less is more" logotype! 12 mm seems more like the stack height, although it can't really be uniform unless it is a zero drop shoe (which is highly unlikely). The on…
  • And it's up!   http://minimalistrunningshoes.org/altra-drop-review

  • Actually, it is on the Wear Tested list of 5-star shoes, but I can't find a review of it yet. It will probably be up any day now. http://www.examiner.com/list/the-five-star-minimalist-running-shoes-of-wear-tested

  • But still no reviews, not even any user reviews on the Altra site... After my first 10 miles in the NB MR10v2 this morning, it would be very interesting to try the Altra One for a comparison; I could use an even wider, or rather more foot-shaped, to…

  • I certainly sympathize with your difficult position, and I wish I had taken my pair out for an initial run this morning; that might have given us a bit of feedback on the tilting issue. Unfortunately we have very hard winds here right now, and I ran…
  • @moglesby: I suppose I do feel a slight hint of an arch bump; I would have preferred a flat sole, but do not think it will bother me much. Strangely enough, that inwards slant that @laeuferin mentioned above, and that I at first dismissed, is actual…
  • Well, laeuferin, the only thing that is perfectly clear to me is that we all have very different feet and therefore also very different preferences :) On the floor beside me right now is a brand new pair of MR10v2's, fresh home from the store, and o…
  • Nice Bryan, though I don't use the site myself it seems rather popular. You might however want to edit the above link; there is a redundant "http://" at the end of the URL. Cheers!
  • Don't know what to say about that really; I never expected it to be a racing flat type of shoe, but was hoping for a little cushioning over the MT10. Your experience seems to suggest that is the case, so I should be perfectly happy with it. Perhaps …
  • Yes, there is that risk of course. Seems like Inov-8 is using it in a few of their road shoes as well, but not sure what the verdict is on those models regarding durability. In a way, the One is pitched as a "performance" shoe, ie a racing flat, and…

  • You really don't like it, Bryan, but I can't say that I myself have any opinion of, nor any particular experience with, blown rubber in a shoe. Would you like to elaborate on why you think it is a problem? Just curious, you know :)

  • I don't think the upper has received any change at all in this minor update, just the outsole. But @billblunderbuss would know more: http://www.runblogger.com/forum/discussion/226/mt110-update
