I am a trail runner and found the price and effectiveness to be good. The initial feel is not great as I feel the lateral supports but that quickly resolves into a feel of strong lateral strength and support on off-camber trails. Like "One Mile at a Time" - I agree that the 710 had a much better feel however I almost immediately had to discontinue the 710 as the midsole/outsole was way to thin for running the rooty & rocky trails I'm accustomed to running. The "minimalist" style, for me, is extremely thin and does not protect against sharp roots and rocks that are a part of the trails I run and go on for quite a distance. I wish RR carried the new 510v2 but I will have to go to another seller to order them and trial them. I do recommend the 510 especially if you have really wide feet like me.

The Materials used are okay. My issue is how this thing is put together. The fit and finish are below average. I might just be spoiled because this is the cheapest shoe I have attempted to buy recently. I exchanged it for the 710 An American Made New Balance.
It was a huge difference in quality.
I am not a USA products only guy. But after this experience I am suspicious that for New Balance Shoes there is a HUGE difference.
