Great ATR shoe but,..

I really love this shoe. It feels snappy, yet has enough cushioning and feels comfortable for miles. I have several pairs of this shoe in fact and have probably put in a combined 700-800 miles in the pairs I own. I like the gusseted tongue and the last fits my foot well. My issues with the shoe are durability and grip. The shoe treads breakdown rather quickly for a trail/road shoe and it offers zero grip on any smooth wet surfaces. I'd really like to see a read more

Comfortability minus construction
June 18, 2017
These are the ABSOLUTE most comfortable shoe I've worn when it comes to trail grapplers, so much so I wore them every day. The BIGGEST flaw in these shoes are the mesh that covers the front of the toe, it becomes detached from the shoe within months and exposes your foot. I still wear them despite the ridicule of my entire foot being noticeable up front. Otherwise wonderful shoe.

Fantastic shoe but highly lacks durability
June 13, 2017
I really enjoyed this shoe for the first 5ish months. Since then, the body of the shoe has begun to break down. I contacted New Balance and they questioned if I was wearing a size too small. I assured them they fit. Holes developed near my big toe and along the side of my foot (towards the front). If you look at the picture, there is a thin line of dark fabric that runs between the two different colors of gray. This was what deteriorated after about 10 months. read more

The most comfortable shoes ever!
June 12, 2017
If you don't feel comfortable with any regular shoes at all, try this one but try 2E (Wide) version where that makes a big impact when you have that shoes for hours! I'm very happy that New Balance are making lots of Wide and Extra-Wide shoes compare to other brands.

Nice Addition to Fresh Foam Line!

Great all around shoe ( run, trails, hiking). If you are looking for a one shoe fits all, this is it! More substance than the Zante which was too light for me. Has a cradled fit that some may consider to run small.

Nice looking, but...

Really cool looking sneaker at first. A bit stiff, but that's OK with me. I figured that the cushioning would be a bit more soft with the name "foam" but I guess not. Main issue was that the siding that runs around the shoe has come apart from the shoe after minimal use on both feet. Very poorly constructed it seems.

Running + Casual Duty

The Fresh Foam provides ample cushioning for short to medium length runs. The tread sheds gunk better than my 980 Trail shoes due to the more open tread pattern. As solid performer in casual duty as well.
