User Review: New Balance Men's 1500
Materials: Leather/Gore tex
Use: Day Hiking
Break-in Period: n/a
Price Paid: $99
I hadn't considered New Balance when looking for a new pair of hiking boots. These caught my eye because of the design and price. I have only had them for a few days and have yet to his a trail with them but here are my thoughts so far...
They are a great pair of medium duty hiking boots. Great for hiking and possibly backpacking.
Try them on before purchasing. Like most New Balance products, I purchased 1/2 size larger than I usually do.
Styling and design are great.
A+ on comfort.
Vibram outsoles so traction should be excellent, but keep in mind that this pair has not tested on a trail as of yet.
