The shoe model as important as this one, you’d expect to be the company’s flagship, and to use the best they have to offer. So they do – and these are positioned to be the ultimate running machines your money can buy, outfitted with N-ERGY cushioning throughout to improve on the shock absorption that normal foam underpinnings coud never bring you. Let’s take these New Balance men’s running shoes on and see if they run as well as they seem capable on paper.

The Dual Density collar, the Lockdown Liner and the Abzorb Strobel sock certainly give these shoes a muscular take-no-prisoners look. For the money, they certainly give you something substantial – the pair weighs in at about a pound and a half.

The first thing you notice about the technology that goes into these New Balance trail running shoes is that they are built on the proprietary New Balance PL1 system that the company is using on its top of the range models. The fact that the lace-up system employs SureLace is evident too, and it’s all really plush and confidence-inspiring (if you haven’t had the pleasure of using these before, the laces have an uneven pattern on them to make sure that they don’t slip once you have tied them up).
