"I don't know why New Balance and all the people who work making shoes with 0 or 4mm drop and in a minimal way don't check how is a human foot. The human foot have is prety wide in the forefoot and it is more wide for people who runs minimal or 0 drop. Very wide!! So, why the New Balance MT00 is the most narrow shoe I have seen ever?? Why almost any brand of shoes made wide shoes like Altra shoes does?? I can't understand this... I really can't understand what the ingeniers are thinking when they are making shoes. Hey New Balance!! The people have wider foot than your are thinking. And more if is a 0 drop shoes. Very very wide!! Not very very narrow. We are not japanese geisha with narrow wood soes. We are trail minimal o drop runners!!"

Yes, I recommend this product.
"The grip is quite substantial scrambling ridge, or especially after clouds pour and trails get messy. Zero drop is really nice. I haven't found anything that I don't like in the shoe. It's quite the upgrade from last years MT00v1. Very cool part I discovered was the elastic heel grab that aids in getting the shoe on your foot and then gets out of the way when you don't need it. For a zero drop, super aggressive trail shoe you really can't ask for more here. I didn't know if I'd get enough forefoot room since this shoe is not using the NL-1 last, but I was pleasantly surprised how soft and roomy the upper was. Thanks NB, this one is going to be a keeper for me. Now how about releasing that MT110v2..."

"I eagerly awaited the arrival of this shoe but upon receiving them and wearing them out on the trails I am a bit disappointed with the end product. First thing I noticed was how much narrower the forefoot was then most minimus models, while running in them it doesn't cause much discomfort but it is still apparent. Second, the shoe feels a bit sloppy. On technical rock gardens and fast descents it doesn't hug/hold the foot well. Third, the opening around the ankle is pretty wide and is easy to accumulate trail debris. Things I like about the shoe. Has a gnarly outsole which really sticks to just about anything from dirt to wet rocks. I also love the look, has a vintage throwback shoe look. I hope NB goes back and addresses some of the issues with the shoe because I feel that this has the potential to be a burly ultra mountain running shoe."
