SUBSCRIBE: http://bit.ly/GearistSub Full review of the New Balance 910v4 Trail: http://bit.ly/nb910v4trail Get the New Balance 910v4 Trail at: Amazon: https://amzn.to/2GBLqvR Zappos: http://bit.ly/910v4ZAPPOS The last time we looked at the New Balance 910 was in its second iteration (Which you can read about HERE). Now in it’s fourth go-round, this popular shoe, built to tackle almost any terrain, finds its way onto the feet of both Lori and Brandon. Additionally, the New Balance 910v4 was Lori’s race shoe at the Deception Pass 50k this past weekend (as of this writing). Keep on reading to see why Lori thought it worthy to be on her feet for so many grueling miles! The NB 910v4 is a solid trail shoe and has been Lori’s go-to for many training runs as well as a couple of 50k races. That being said, again, it may be a bit on the stiff(er) and heavy(er) side for some runners with the women’s size 8 weighing 9oz and the men’s size 9 at 10.4oz. If you are looking for a trail shoe and want something that will tackle a lot of different terrain, we feel the comfort and ride of this would suit you nicely. Coming in at $109.99 (or as low as $60(!!!) at the links below) seems like a reasonable price to pay for such a capable and versatile shoe. How stiff do you like your running shoes (road AND trail)?
