I've always liked New Balance on my feet. I know their fit so well I never worry about ordering online with LLBean. I saw these advertised and sure enough, they are music to my feet. My most favorite shoe I have ever purchased. Thanks LLBean for a great selection of New Balance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by walkinhome1 New NEW BALANCE "Trail" shoes
I waited to do this review until I had given the shoes a real workout. Break in was just about non-existent. Seriously wore them for the first time building a new privy at Carl Newhall Shelter on the Appalachian Trail. Made many, many 30 minute round trips carrying materials to the work site encountering all types of terrain except marsh but including a decent stream crossing. These shoes did the job with ease. Tread pattern seems adequate. Spent the last day entirely in the rain so they got the "wet" treatment but my feet never seemed to get all that wet. May be due to the newness of the shoe. Support was excellent, rolled my ankle once, which is a pretty good record considering the terrain crossed and I was tired. Comfortable/supportive wearing all day in challenging terrain. Hope to take them (reason I bought them) to Tasmania/New Zealand and give them an additional workout. I think that they are a winner.
