New Balance MO80 and WO80 Trail Shoe Preview on Running Warehouse Blog

I’m a big fan of the New Balance MT10 and New Balance MT00 trail shoes (I’m also currently testing out the NB MT20v2, and like it a lot), but have found that they lack protection necessary for running on some of the chunky gravel trails near my house. The MT110 was a potential solution, but […]

New Balance MT10v2, MO80, and 1210 Trail Shoes and MR10v2 Road Shoe Preview Videos from Running Warehouse

Earlier this month Running Warehouse posted preview videos of three new trail shoes set to be released for Spring 2013. First, the Minimus Trail (MT10) gets an update which includes aspects of both the upper and sole. Sounds like they addressed the tendency of the upper to soak up water like a sponge, though I’m […]

Sole Delamination in New Balance Minimus MT00 Trail Shoes

While walking around Santa’s Village in northern New Hampshire yesterday I noticed that the sole of my New Balance Minimus MT00 shoes was starting to peel away from the upper in three separate locations – seems to be worst along the lateral forefoot. Curious if anyone else has had a similar problem – see photos […]

New Balance Minimus Trail Zero (MT00) Review

While in general I’m highly supportive of the trend toward lighter and less supportive shoes, I believe that there are certain situations where it is desirable to have a bit of protection underfoot. I learned this lesson when I ran the HAT Run 50K in 2010 in the New Balance Minimus MT10. I was crossing […]

New Balance Minimus Road Zero (MR00) Review

As I’ve slowly been building my mileage back up after a long period of low volume running, I’ve found myself way behind in writing up shoe reviews. One of the shoes that I’ve had for quite some time now is the New Balance Minimus Road Zero (MROO). I’m not sure exactly how many miles I’ve […]

New Balance 730 Update: 25 Solid Miles of Running

I thought I’d  drag my self from the depths of final book editing to give a quick update on my experience with the New Balance 730 running shoe. A few weeks back I wrote a post describing the New Balance 730 in detail, but at the time I had yet to run in them. I’ve […]

New Balance 730 Preview: A Minimalist Running Shoe that Has Flown in Under the Radar!

A few weeks ago I got an email from a reader asking if I had seen or tried the New Balance 730 (thanks for the heads up Robert!). He indicated that it was for sale at Finish Line, and that it felt very low drop and had a super wide toebox. Needless to say I […]

New Balance Minimus Multi-Sport MO10 Review

The New Balance Minimus Multi-Sport (MO10) is not so much a new shoe as it is a variant of the New Balance Minimus Trail MT10. As such, this review will not be comprehensive, and you can read my original NB MT10 review if you’d like more detail on how the shoe performs all around (disclosure: […]

New Balance MT110 Trail Running Shoe Review by Nate Sanel

Nate Sanel is a fellow NH runner, and quite possibly a bigger shoe geek than I am. He also has quite the running resume – over the past few months he’s completed three 100 mile races, with more to come. So far, his list of finishes this summer includes Western States, the VT 100, and […]

Review of New Balance MT101 Trail Running Shoes

If I had to total the number of hours that I’ve spent wearing each of the running shoes in my collection over the past 6 months, I’m pretty sure that the New Balance MT101 would come out on top by a fairly wide margin (note: this shoe was a personal purchase). The reason is quite […]
