New Balance 810 v2 Men's Shoe
Not gonna lie, we weren’t the biggest fans of the original MT810 from New Balance. A heavier shoe with a near-excessive amount of protection, this traditionally designed trail model just didn’t really do it for us from a running standpoint. We are pleased to see a complete makeover in the shoe’s first update, and welcome the 810 v2 with open arms (or open feet?). Expect the 810 v2 to be a rugged yet relatively nimble shoe capable of all-terrain performance.
What to Watch For
- Complete Redesign: Nothing from the original 810 has gone untouched in this update. New Balance has reformed the shoe to become a more performance-oriented trail offering.
- Dramatically Reduced Weight: Down from a whopping 13.7 oz in the original, the new 810 v2 checks in at 10.9 oz in a Men’s size 9 and 8.4 oz in a Women’s size 8 according to New Balance.
- Lower Offset: An 8mm heel-to-toe differential will promote running on the toes for a swift and agile trail running experience.
