Super comfortable but falling apart.
2 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Update after 8 months:
I didn't get to use these shoes much until the spring and have only put about 75 miles on them so far. They are already falling apart, exactly how another reviewer has described. Near the toe, the fabric is tearing (see photo). The cushion around the ankle is also showing significant wear. I am extremely disappointed as these are the most comfortable trail shoes I've owned, but I will not be buying New Balance again. I think I'll spend a little bit more and try out a different brand of trail runners that are hopefully better constructed.

Original post: After years of uncomfortable hikes in boots, I finally decided to switch to trail runners and I couldn't be happier with this purchase. I bought these because I always wear New Balance sneakers at the gym and they fit me well since I have a wider foot. This pair was no exception. They fit perfectly.

There was absolutely no break in period. The first time I wore them, I went on a nine mile hike with a 20 pound pack through mud, ice and snow. My feet got wet, but the shoes and my feet and socks dried quickly (I wore wool socks and a pair of sock liners). I wouldn't wear these on a multi day trip without lots of extra socks, but they are excellent for a day hike.
