      Comments about Mens New Balance Minimus 1010v2 Trail Running Shoe:

      I am a long time passionate runner (since 1998) and business traveler I have been off the roads for about 5 years and focused only on trais. Traveling in major cities doesnt lend itself well to finding trails so I needed a road shoe as well. Since I went barefoot 5 years ago with the Five Fingers, first generation and recently went into my 4th pair with the Spyridon, I have been struggling trying to find a pair of road shoes that have the cushion and stability of the Brooks Cascadia, my alternate trail shoe. I have tried more than I care to go through. I have been explorng New Balance for trail shoes and wanted the 380's for the road. I took a chance with the 1010 v2 for trails and almost was going to return them hen they became my choice while having to run in a neighborhood nearby.To my amazement, fresh out of the box, they responded better than i could have imagined. I am going back to exchange them for a half size ssmaller but I found my versatile shoe and cant be happier.

        Comments about Mens New Balance Minimus 1010v2 Trail Running Shoe:

        I've only had these a few weeks, but love them already. They seem to run a half size big, but that's not a huge deal. After running on the road for a few days, 5 or so miles the outer treads seem to be wearing a bit quick, but at 220+ that's about normal for me. After several trail runs through the woods with fallen leaves and various sized roots in the trail I see where these shoes excel. Excellent traction even with a little dew on the ground.

            These shoes did not fit my feet at all!. The footbeds contours do not match mine and they just feel terrible. I am unable to say anything else about these shoes which I realize may not be helpful. Sorry! New Balance, back they go!

            Comments about Mens New Balance Minimus 1010v2 Trail Running Shoe:

            I'm a mid level runner, mixing up between VFF for short <3 mile runs and Newton Distance for longer stuff.
            I have been looking for something in between for a while, specifically a minimalist trail shoe since Newton's lugs don't perform well off paved roads. I wanted something that has more cushion and protection that five fingers but not all the bulk of other trail shoes. The issue I found with other minimalist trail shoes (Pure grit, Innov8, Kinvara TR and others, I tested everything out there..) was that they were to flat in the front - forward rolling was fine, but with a 'natural' forefoot strike I want to be able to use the foot's flexibility and roll sideways too. Initial contact on the outside of the foot and then a rolling motion inwards as the muscles flex and cushion the step.
            The 1010v2 Trail is perfect here. It has serious lugs and good damping in the front but has a very natural feeling and smooth transition for a natural motion. By far the best I have felt out there.

            First impressions..
            After a few runs and a 4 hr hike in the mountains the 1010v2 feels slightly more rugged than the first one - more like a shoe than the very minimal glove upper of the first version, but is still very light and flexible. Toebox is very generously sized which I like, but some might find too large. Overall fit on my foot is great.

            The reason I don't give this shoe five stars is the design of the heel cap. All my other shoes today have a cut out at the very top of the cap to not interfere with the Achilles tendon. For some reason this show does not, a feature manufacturers figured out years ago.. So I have a blister right there from the top of the heel cap chafing. I'll see if it adjusts and wears in and update my review if so.
