    Comments about Mens New Balance Leadville v3 Trail Running Shoe:

    Though I ran marathons slowly in my 40's including New York City and the Trans Sandia 28.5 mile run, knee and foot pain developed after 70. At 73 my best time for a flat 5K was about 50' and running in the mountains a distant memory. Even walking a mile or two on paved surfaces became painful in Hoka One One and New Balance 1260v3. These shoes Leadvilles allowed me to train on dirt trails and cross Katahdin's Knife Edge trail at age 74. Their grip and cushioning on uneven gravel, slanted raock landings etc and feel for the surfaces while retaining rock protection is remarkable.

    Comments about Mens New Balance Leadville v3 Trail Running Shoe:

    The New Balance Leadville v3 is a very comfortable shoe. Made for trail running, but probably one of the only stability shoes for the trails. Also comes in 4E. Shoe does not really have enough cushion for running on the streets and cement. All New Balance high end shoes are great.

      Comments about Mens New Balance Leadville v3 Trail Running Shoe:

      I hike 2 or 3 times weekly in mountainous terrain. My NewBalance Leadville V3 are my third pair of the model, and clearly the best version yet. I hike on rocky trails, and the gripe is great. This is clearly the most durable, well manufactured version yet, well able to handle tough conditions. I like the big toe box, the available 2E wide size and the grip of the sole. Although it's marketed as a trail runner, I find it works well for me as a hiking shoe.

      Comments about Mens New Balance Leadville v3 Trail Running Shoe:

      I'm really new to trail running, yet recent rains here in California took the nice hard-packed trails and turned them into rutted and rocky paths. I wanted something with a more substantial tread and sole to absorb the impact of jagged rocks that my normal street shoes were letting hit my feet. These do the job and are still light weight and ventilated.

      Good trail shoe for wide feet. Heel is a bit loose.

      By Larry

      from undisclosed

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Mens New Balance Leadville v3 Trail Running Shoe:

      I'm a big (220lb) runner, about 25 miles/week. Just started trail running so I thought I'd try these. I have wide feet and that really narrows down the choices in trail shoes. I love the grip they gave me on mud and hard packed snowy trails. I'm sure they saved me from falls already (compared to Asics Gel Nimbus 18s). Like other reviewers, I found the heel to be a bit loose but I can deal with it. Oddly, of all the shoes I've run in, these could use that extra heel lock hole the most, and they don't have one. I've put 30 miles on them and so far I do like them for the trails. As a VIP, I appreciate being able to try new shoes like these with the 90 day guarantee.

      Good looking, quality OK. Did not fit me. Tied tight I can still pull shoe off foot. Went with Asiscs GT2000 trail version.

      Running in a summer storm where the trails turned into streams I was able to do multiple stream crossings and complete an 18 mile run without needing to change socks or shoes, my feet survived intact!

      Comments about Mens New Balance Leadville v3 Trail Running Shoe:

      Love this shoe! It's holding up great. Trails and talus are no problem. They have good support around the heel and the rock plate under the forefoot really keeps the sharp rocks from pushing through. All this stability and protection yet they feel soft and comfy and light.

      This is my second pair of Leadvilles. Love this show. I run steep roads and rugged mountain trails and this shoe goes anywhere with comfort. Nothing I can criticize about Leadvilles. Great mid mileage 30-40 miles/week. If u have wider feet you will love it.

      Great Shoe for Moderate Trail Running

      By Michael

      from undisclosed

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Mens New Balance Leadville v3 Trail Running Shoe:

      I'm an avid trail runner, but like most trail runners I get stuck on a dirt road every now and then. God forbid, even some pavement. I've been a Leadville owner through several iterations and I'm very satisfied with their performance and durability. The uppers tend to start coming apart at 350 miles, but I usually retire them by then anyway since the support system starts to break down (I'm a big guy, 6'3" +200).

      I also wear LaSportiva shoes. I wear them when I'm on a very aggressive/rocky trail. The Leadvilles will transfer a sharp rock and can be a little loose in the mud. I'll switch to the LaSportiva shoes when it's going to be a muddy run or a rocky run (or a technical run). Otherwise, it's the Leadvilles.

      I jog about 3 miles a day, not very fast, but I jog on a mix of hard and soft trails. The shoe has great traction on rocks and gravel trails, no slips. They fit true size and very comfortable. The structure maybe look flimsy but they are holding up so far.
