New Balance MO80 / WO80
Low to the ground with a lightweight construction upper, the MO80 (Men’s model) and WO80 (Women’s model) are geared for outdoor running and beyond. Sticky Vibram rubber gives generous grip, while a 4mm offset keeps the foot position for a mid-to-forefoot strike. The no-sew upper hugs the foot, and the upper uses durable materials built to withstand trail debris and other tough conditions.
What to Watch For
- 4mm Drop: This shoe has the same drop and is on the same “natural” last as the popular MT110/WT110 and MT10/WT10 models.
- Firmer Platform: The 80 is designed to offer a lot of protection for a Minimus shoe.
- Vibram Rubber: The tough rubber outsole includes bi-directional lugs for grip both on ascents and descents.
- Trail-Ready Upper: The closed mesh keeps junk out and resists tears from sticks, rocks and other debris.
