New Balance MR749GY 2010

The New Balance MR749GY weighs 660g (pair, size 11) dedicated running shoe; well-cushioned heel; supportive heel; aggressive outsole lug pattern for mud; good stiffness in sole to resist rocks; upper extremely breathable; water can escape. But limited to trail running and ‘fast and light’ movement; not as durable as others; not waterproof.

The New Balance MR749GY is a superb trail running shoe with mild stability control.
