New Balance MT 910 v1, $110
Category: Versatile Cruiser
Weight: 10.3 oz (men’s); 8.2 oz (women’s)
Height off the ground: 26mm (heel); 19mm (forefoot)
FIT: A new model with an accessible fit for a lot of runners, the 910 runs wide from heel to toe, with generous midfoot height for higher volume feet.
FEEL: Testers liked the combination of cushion, comfort and flexibility in this shoe. Although it’s a neutral model and more cushioned than many trail shoes, the moderate heel-toe drop offers a hint of agility and stability, while the firm heel cup adds structure and a more secure sensation on all types of trails.
RIDE: Cushioned, easy-riding comfort with underfoot rock protection make this shoe runnable for long trail hauls, but equally possible for road jaunts. Narrow-footed testers felt the wider fit lacked nimbleness on the trail, but those who needed the volume were thrilled about the fit and ride.
