"Similar to other reviewers who have 'progressed' from the previous model onto this shoe, I am extremely disappointed by the product. Having had 3 pairs of the MR00 and run 10 marathons in them, when I couldn't find the same model I bought the new version, which has left me gutted for a number of reasons: 1 - The soft upper of the old model has been replaced by a cheap-feeling meshy upper which doesn't provide the snug yet lightweight feel of the previous model. I don't know all the technical details, but it simply doesn't feel like the old model. 2 - The lining at the top of the heel cuts into my achilles leaving blistering on both heels. I thought this may be because they were brand new, although this never happened with the older models. I gave them the benefit of the doubt but have now had to cut off the top of the heel section to prevent this occurring - not what you want to have to do after paying for these. 3 - There's always a superficial element, you want them to look good. I may be old fashioned, but I prefer a lighter coloured shoe, rather than the black colour scheme offered by New Balance in the men's version. I'm based in the UK and we are limited to the dark blue or black models, but only the black was available in my size. It's an ugly shoe. As with other reviewers, I'm desperately trying to find somewhere online to buy the previous model, and I'll honestly by 3 or 4 pairs to stock up, as I won't be running in this new model again. I'll be disappointed if the old model isn't brought back and you'll have lost a once loyal customer. BRING BACK THE OLD MODEL!"
