While the New Balance Men's 007 Trail Running Shoe isn't the ideal match for your cuff-links and tux, you tend not to go for formal wear at the obstacle-course races of which you've grown so fond. Inspired by low-profile, form-fitting climbing shoes, the 007 sports toe-to-top lacing and a rounded toe, and rubber comes up 'round the side so your speedy dashes through the mud isn't quite so hard on your feet. No-sew mono-mesh on top lets your ten little piggies breath all the way home without running the risk of getting rubbed raw. The padded tongue protects the top of your foot while gussets stand guard against an unwelcome intrusion of off-road debris. A heel loop lessens the struggles between you and the shoe, added proof that this shoe sports stealth, just what you want for flying under the radar. Antimicrobial treatments prolong the period of sweet-smelling shoes by creating an environment inhospitable to odor-causing bugs. The 4mm drop isn't minimal but isn't much, either. If you're new to the "less is more" fitness focus, the barely-there offset requires some adaptation time. The aggressive rubber outsole is covered in traction lugs so you stay upright whether you're flipping tires on mats in your functional fitness class or trying to scale 6-foot wooden walls in the middle of a muddy-buddy obstacle course race.
