New-New Balance Trail Shoes. (If your MT100s are wearing out, here's the replacement).
The latest New Balance Minimal trail shoe, the MT 101. I have had my MT100s for more than a year and they're holding up great. I wore them in my first 50miler (the 2010 JFK50). The 100s are light, allow water to flow through them, and have a good combination of ground-feel versus rock protection (normally these attributes are inversely proportional), but the tread is not 'grippy' for muddy or wet rocks. - all trade offs. More info here. What's your trail shoe?
