NEW BAL­ANCE 880V8 GTX

Canadian Running - - WINTER SHOE GUIDE - Ed­i­tor’s Pick: Best Win­ter Road Shoe

This lat­est edi­tion of New Bal­ance’s 880 se­ries dif­fer­en­ti­ates it­self from the com­pany’s pop­u­lar road shoe ver­sion with the ad­di­tion of a Gore-Tex layer, mak­ing it ideal for pro­tec­tion against most foul-weather run­ning con­di­tions through fall and win­ter.

The 880v8 GTX also ac­com­mo­dates a wider foot in the toe box but feels as though it runs a bit smaller than past ver­sions of the 880. As ad­ver­tised, the out­sole pro­vides a de­cent amount of flex­i­bil­ity – what you’d want on win­tery trails and sloppy roads – while the TruFuse mid­sole gives the shoe its highly re­spon­sive en­ergy re­turn. All in all, a great shoe for all but the harsh­est con­di­tions.— Men’s: 305 g (10.8 oz.) Women’s: 280 g (9.9 oz.) Drop ra­tio: 10 mm $175
