OK, so the MT110 and WT110 have been so popular that they really oughta run for office. New Balance engineered these vote-getters with fantastic trail performance and a good dose of style for their $85.00 MSRP.
For runners who want a more cushioned ride in the Minimus collection, New Balance is adding the new MT1010 and WT1010. These shoes bump the features up a notch while keeping weight down. The result is a lightweight trail trainer with a bit more cushion than its MT/WT110 running mate, helping you go the distance in comfort.
What to Watch For
- Low Drop: Like the MT/WT110, the 1010 sits on a platform with a 4mm offset.
- Low Weight: The 1010 is expected to weigh almost exactly the same as the MT/WT110 – 7.7 oz for Men’s size 9 and 5.9 oz for Women’s size 8.
- Premium Trail Platform: The 1010 sports Rock Stop protection and a Vibram outsole, but keeps weight in check by switching over to New Balance’s Revlite foam, which is 30% lighter than traditional foams but retains its responsiveness, cushioning and durability.
- Rugged Upper: The synthetic mesh upper is ready to stand up to almost anything you’ll encounter on the trail, and is constructed with a gusseted tongue to keep out grit and debris.
