Comments about Womens New Balance Fresh Foam Gobi Trail Running Shoe:
I like the fact that these shoes were designed to be a hybrid between road and trail shoes, with a little more cushion than trail shoes, a little more traction than road shoes, and a heel-toe rise in between the two. It seemed perfect for what I wanted. However these shoes do not live up to the concept. They are built on a very narrow last. The upper "bootie" does (magically) stretch to accommodate foot width, but this ends up taking away depth in the toe box, so it still ends up too cramped in the forefoot. The off-road aspect is also lacking, as the tread is more suitable for the road, and the "toe protect" is flimsy and not as robust as that of other NB trail runners, such as the Leadville. Other than the width, it is well cushioned and comfortable, and probably great for a neutral runner (or fitness walker) with narrow and skinny feet. It is extremely ugly though. I'm not sure why they choose white for the midsole of any shoe designed to go off-road, and despite the pink tread (which I'm sure will also get dirty quickly) the women's version looks entirely masculine, probably even more masculine than the men's version.
