I bought these shoes as I wanted some trail-running shoes but have a very hard time finding shoes which fit my long, skinny, flat feet. I started using New Balance running shoes a few years ago when I found that their size 14 running shoes generally did the trick. But, these shoes are my favorite NBs of all.
They fit great, breath wonderfully, and have great tread for running on dirt or pavement. I've put about 150 miles on my first pair to include some 15-mile road runs and my feet never complained. I'm going to try them out with my 25-pound backpack this summer as well.
