My 2nd pair August 23, 2011
Reviewer: JC from Texas
Shoe Size: Felt true to size Shoe Width: Felt true to width I was looking for a light, flat-soled runner for Crossfit. The MT101s fit the bill! I bought the black version and liked them so much I decided later to get the green pair. Great off and on trail. Perfect for squats, cleans, presses, and transitioning to a run. Comfortable with or without (thin)socks and to just wear around casually. The green version has an iridescent quality to it and look best in sunlight. Definitely recommended.
Wears this shoe: Crossfitting; for any casual activity

Solid minimalistic shoe June 14, 2011
Reviewer: Josh from Cambridge, MA
Shoe Size: Felt true to size Shoe Width: Felt true to width I was looking for the lightest hiking shoes and these fit the bill. I hiked 25 miles of the AT in them, it rained the whole time but these shoes remained comfortable. Perhaps not as much tread on the bottom as I would have liked, and I am worried about longevity, but it feels as close to barefooting as I'd like to be. Rock plate def helped take the sting off hard steps on sharp things. Also did a few trail runs and loved them there too.

Very Nice Looking Shoes May 30, 2011
Reviewer: anonymous from Oklahoma City, OK
Shoe Size: Felt half size larger than marked Shoe Width: Felt wider than marked I bought these New Balance Mt101 for my husband's birthday. And he loves them. Wide enough for his wide feet. It looks really good on him.
Wears this shoe: he wears it to work.
Fits my wide foot April 20, 2011
Reviewer: Marvin S. from Simi Valley, CA
Shoe Size: Felt true to size Shoe Width: Felt wider than marked This shoe fits my foot fairly well. My pinky toes do get a little irritated so I'm still wearing socks to break them in. I haven't had a chance to run in them yet but I've worn them for 6 hours straight (mostly standing) and they felt comfortable.If you have a wide foot, these are a good choice.
Wears this shoe: When I cant wear sandals.
