NEW BALANCE 880V8 GTX
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
