I think they made a great pair of shoes in the 610 version 5.
- New Balance completely revamps the outsole in the 5th version of the 610, giving it a stronger bite and more versatility on the trail. Using the new AT Tread Outsole that features moderately aggressive and multi-directional lugs, including the perimeter of the shoe, the new version promises to tackle all sorts of off-road surfaces. The deep flex grooves are incorporated in the outsole for enhanced flexibility and better transitions from the heel to the forefoot.
- In the 610 v5, New Balance removed many of the numerous overlays and simply strategically placing the remaining ones. It helps reduce the weight of the new version and lessens the risks of hot spots and irritations as there are also lesser stitches.
- The mesh is also more open, which should automatically enhance the shoe breathability.
- New Balance introduces a new midfoot loop in this model that allows runners to fully get personalized fit and comfort.
The fit of the New Balance 610 v5 is a trademark of this line. It has locked in support in the heel and midfoot with a spacious toe room. The average fit should be something most runners will find comfort in. Versatility regarding fit is provided by the medium, wide, and extra wide options. The shoe length is standard and offered in sizes 6 to 15 for the men’s and 5 to 12 for the women’s.
The outsole features lugs of moderate size that delivers plenty of versatility for the runner. With this kind of tread pattern, runners can effortlessly move from the road to the trail. The new feature is called AT Tread Outsole and is significant because of the bite the perimeter lugs provide. Running on technical trail will be as easy as running on dirt roads.
The midsole of this affordable shoe for running features the ABZORB crash pad for shock-absorbing features and the company-exclusive ACTEVA LITE for resiliency and cushioning. An XLT Footbed lies between the outsole tread and the ACTEVA LITE midsole for added cushioning and durability.
The upper presents a more open mesh for enhanced breathability while strategically placed synthetic overlays provide support and structure. A near seamless interior and good padding in the heel and tongue offer excellent comfort.
