    Great shoe! Light weight, great traction.

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    "This is a great trail shoe. Very light weight for a trail shoe. My legs don't get tired on the trail from lifting heavy shoes. Traction is excellent in the mud, sand and snow. The shoe also sheds water easily. IMO the shoe rides low on the ankles but I feel it still offers excellent support from landing to push-off in all terrain. The rock stop keeps my feet from feeling the sharp stones but is still sensitive enough to feel the trail. I have had these shoes for over 200 miles in 4 months now and I have no hotspots, blisters, string bite, or any other problems. The shoes are in great shape too. The bottoms are showing minimal wear. While you can run on asphalt with these shoes, these are definitely made for the trail. As far as sizing, I ordered a 1/2 size up."

    "I wanted a shoe that had a lot of cushioning but these are very light in weight and don't feel supportive. They are very comfortive, feel like wearing slippers."

    Disappointing

    "As someone who has worn New Balance since the early 90s (and has completed 2 marathons in them) I am sorry to say that NB's quality has really gone down hill. They used to be indestructible and long-wearing and now they're flimsy and cheaply constructed. After two trail runs in these shoes the sole on one of the tips came delaminated and is starting to peel. If I got 50 miles out of these shoes I'd be shocked."
