Having completely exhausted all 6 pairs of last year's version of the New Balance MT110 that I had in my cache (can you tell I loved that shoe!?), I was anxious about the fact that I had an upcoming 50k race, and no shoes to wear. The 2013 MT110 was sold out in my size everywhere in Canada, and the upcoming v2 2014 July release was a long wait away.
Luckily, my awesome friends at Frontrunners (Vancouver Island's superlative running shops) were able to coerce their contacts at New Balance Canada into sending over a sample of the MT110v2 just in time for my race. I got in one 10k run in them, plenty to head into a long race with confidence in an untested shoe!
Review Caveat: This is likely a pre-production sample and may not represent the final product!
