I purchased these for a 7K obstacle course/mud run and they performed flawlessly. The race was on various terrains including pavement, sand, mud, and water. The shoes had good grip, and dried quickly after exiting water obstacles. Before the event, I walked/ran short distances in them to strengthen my legs/feet since I had never worn minimal shoes before. After the race, the material was easy to clean, and I plan to use them for future runs/races.

Very displeased with my buy on these shoes. I have been searching for a good barefoot outdoor/everyday shoe. My first buy were the Nike free 4.0, they are alright but smother my feet in hot weather. Their soles also have a way of trapping rocks and twigs, or kicking them back at you when your running. The new balance MT10V2 looked like the best bet out there, but much to my dismay my shoes came damaged right outta the box. The gray mesh lining you can just barely see in that first picture was already detached from the seem.Most of the reviews I read implied these would last around 100 to 200 miles. Clearly no one checks the quality of their product coming off the line, at New Balance. At least Zappos has a good return policy. If anyone can suggest a better built barefoot shoe please let me know.

Great looking shoe, but started to fall apart within 2 weeks of wearing at the top of the toes. Never had problems previously with New Balance. Not happy!

I wear these shoes on many days. At work and home. I alternate them with the Merrell Trail Glove which is also a minimalist shoe. The New Balance MT10V2 has a little more cushion than the Merrell but a little less arch support. Both are great shoes, but I like the New Balance a little better. I'm happy that these shoes are offered in a wide width. I wear these shoes with socks and they feel true to size.

I'd also recommend: Merrell

Just like I did with my MT1010 review, let me start by saying that if you are used to structured, cushioned shoes, you have to transition to those very slowly, and research and apply principles of Natural Running (or Chi running, or Pose). If you don't, you are on a fast track for a bad case of shin splints. With that out of the way, let's get to the review. I have a pair of MT1010, and I really love them. However, when running more than 15 miles on pavement, the slugs on the MT1010 really start to bother - you can feel them every step of the way. Yes, I know, the MT1010 are for trail running, but for me they also work well on pavement. After doing some research, I decided to give the MT10V2 a try, since I had a marathon coming up. They worked out quite well. At first, the band that crosses the front of the shoe felt a bit strange, but with a few runs that feeling went away, and I started to appreciate how much it helps to keep my feet in place. My 1010 were size 11; according to New Balance's site, the 10V2 runs a bit smaller, so I got them on 11 1/2, and the fit was perfect. There is plenty of room in the toe box, with the band preventing your feet from moving inside the shoe, which is really good. The shoe is feather light, with a tad more cushioning than a barefoot-style shoe, and a 4mm drop. If you are looking for something right above barefoot, this shoe is for you. The upper provides plenty of ventilation; I ran a marathon with the 10V2 in Dallas, and it was over 80F, but my feet felt pretty comfortable. The laces stayed in place, and I had to re-tie them only once, as they had become a bit loose. The sole fixed the problem I had with the MT1010, so to me, this was a winner. Plus nothing beats orange...
