NEW BALANCE HIERRO

PRICE: £100
WEIGHT: 340G

Fresh foam is the key player when it comes to talking about this shoe. It’s New Balance’s preferred cushioning system and feels super plush combined with a more 'natural' 4mm heel to toe drop. In terms of off-road performance, it offers a dual-use outsole tread that combines both trail and road running lug designs for grip on and off-Tarmac. The clue is in the name: Hierro is the wildest part of the Canary Islands, rugged unforgiving hard ground where you want to be safe and comfortable ascending at speed on gravel.

VERDICT

Cushioned, comfy shoe for long distance runs on dry, hard trails.

Grip: 4/10
Cushioning: 9/10
Support: 9/10
