05 Dec Review: New Balance 1010v2
It’s been awhile, but I finally put my feet back into some New Balance goodness. The best part about the 1010v2 (http://runningshoes.com/mens-new-balance-1010-v2/blue-yellow) is that I LOVE THEM! Seriously, they have everything I want and need in a trail shoe and hit the mark on all accounts. They are light, flexibile, have an amazing toe box, a comfortable upper, some protection underneath, and just feel nimble and awesome.
The only negatives are that they could potentially wear out quicker than I want, they run a half size too big (size down before you buy!) and don’t give me all the comfort I need for ultra training long days. Also, this happened after shooting and is partially my fault, but I got two pretty bad achilles blisters from the heel cup sticking up too far. This was 85% caused by my socks sliding too far down the back of my ankle, but the reality is the ankle is just too high in the back. I just wear higher socks as normal and all is perfect.
