New Balance MT 110

BEST FOR: Technical trails where grip is paramount. THE TEST: The honeycomb outsole on this minimalist shoe hung tough even on slippery rocks, and the low-to-the-ground design made it stable for off-camber trails. Testers liked the roomy toe box but complained that the arch was a little snug. The double-material upper looks cool but didn’t breathe as well as we’d hoped. Then there are New Balance’s love-’em-or-hate-’em ribbed laces—we loved ’em. Like several shoes here, the MT 110s are only slightly higher (four millimeters) in the heel than in the forefoot, perfect for mid- or forefoot strikers. THE VERDICT: Just enough cushion to keep your feet happy on runs longer than an hour. 7.7 oz
