Comfortable, lightweight, robust lugs, improved cushioning while maintaining a neutral drop and good feel for foot placement. However, some size and toe box shape issues for a wide foot. I've lived with these feet for a long time and know that my right measures a perfect 8 E and the left about a 7.75 EE. Great for swimming but not for buying shoes. With that being said, I believe these run small in the length and width. I tried my regular DryMax socks as well as some very thin ones and still too snug. The width felt more like an E or EE than a 4-E. Even the shoe calculator at the New Balance site says they run small. I'm trying the 8.5 4-E with fingers crossed as I've never had to go up to 8.5 before. As for the shoe itself, they seemed to have the right weight and sole for rocky Arizona trails (as another reviewer noted). Very comfortable with good feel for foot placement. I've had the New Balance MT10v2 trail shoes in 8 EE before and they're nice roomy shoes but the sole is too thin for granite and cholla (cactus) pieces so I use them at the track. Also the MT10v2 have more of a duck-foot shaped forefoot while the these are more of an upside down heart shape.

This is a very nice shoe, but is about half a size smaller than actual size. New Balance shoes usually run large but not these. Besides that, it's a great shoe.

These are great trail shoes. Super comfortable, tons of cushioning, amazing traction. BUT - they're almost cleats. So they're not the most comfortable for every day wear. I wouldn't recommend them if you just want to wear them casually, wearing to a gym, or even running on hard surfaces. For trail running though, they're amazing.

I'm honestly pleased with these shoes. I've had problems with my right heel staying put in other pairs of shoes and in these ones my feet feel secure while still have room to move. I'm a woman who wears a size 9 in women's and a 7.5 in men's. I thought these were just fine, but as the previous sentence says, I'm a woman so that could contribute to it.

My upgrade from the original Minimus Trail which were great, except for the absolute minimum amount of sole/foam which was insufficient for our AZ trails. These have been fantastic! I highly recommend them to the runner who wants a zero-drop shoe for the trail with as little underfoot as possible.
