New Balance Men’s Fresh Foam Hierro V5 Trail Running Shoe

New Balance is very proud of its Fresh Foam midsoles, and with good reason. It provides plush cushioning while still feeling fairly responsive. Subsequently, the Heirro v5 is a joy to run in: supremely comfortable but not mushy, it feels like the kind of shoe in which you could spend a lovely, blister-free day on the trails.
This is where the Heirro v5 loses a few marks. At 324g, it’s noticeably heavy and, as such, not a shoe for your faster off-road efforts. In fairness, the added weight is the price you pay for comfort, cushioning and good looks. But faster runners may decide this isn’t a compromise they’re prepared to make.
