The MR/WR10 was one of the first shoes in the New Balance Minimus line when it launched in early 2011. Come March 2013, it’s finally time for an update to the groundbreaking road shoe. The MR10 v2 and WR10 v2 pump new life into this lightweight trainer model – expect stack heights and offsets to remain about the same, now joined by a more flexible open mesh upper, more durable outsole and a significant decrease in weight.
What to Watch For
- New Upper: Flex points at key areas along the lightweight mesh upper allow it to move better with the foot for improved barefoot comfort.
- Updated Outsole: Vibram rubber provides long-lasting durability and excellent traction while keeping weight down.
- Reduced Weight: According to New Balance, the MR10 v2 will weigh in at 6.5 oz (size 9), while the WR10 v2 will tip the scales at 5.2 oz (size 8). That’s over an ounce of weight reduction from the original.
