Yes, I recommend this product.
"Bought one of each color in 5B. The sizing is pretty consistent from the 10v2 Trail. And NB, being true to form, kept the toe box nice and roomy but with a slim heel cup. yay!!! Things I love about the 10v3: The TPU overlay on the upper definitely keeps a lot of the moisture and debris from creeping in from the bottom and a majority of the sides. I haven't gotten soaked in them yet so can't tell if they'd get waterlogged or not because of said TPU overlay. The upper feels like it's predecessor, maybe a bit nicer even. The midsole is phenomenal. Definitely noticed a nice cushiony feel to them without sacrificing the feel of the ground. Don't know how NB did it but spot on! The outsole lugs are much more muchier than last year and seem to be a bit more aggressive which I personally like. I lost no traction while going over the river and through the woods. The only thing I didn't like about the shoe has to do with me, I suppose. My index toe is my biggest toe and unlike the 10v2, this shoe curves in a bit more and will probably fit better for those whose index is longer than they're big toe. I also like a snug fit, not the standard thumb-width. If you're like me and like a snug fit as well, then you might do well to go maybe a half size larger than what you typically get. In fact, I may get these in a 5.5 just to see.... End result: Great shoe! I personally prefer the 10v2s but you won't know if you like this upgrade unless you try them for yourself! It's still new so I'm hoping there will be more color schemes to the shoe despite my possibly not buying anymore of these (STOCKPILED on the 10v2s so I'm sure I'm set for a few years...)"
