Here's what other sites are saying:
The New Balance 1520 GT looks like a cross between a trail runner and a hiking shoe. That's because it is. A fast-moving multi-sport outdoor cross-trainer with Gore-Tex waterproofing for year-round use. From winter trail runs to Wednesday games of Ultimate in a summer downpour, the 1520 GT's multi-directional Vibram sole and burly upper take a licking and keep on sticking you to the ground when it counts. Molded C-Cap midsole supports your foot in lateral motion, and stiff Stability Web arch support prevents buckling on uneven terrain.
