This barely there model proved capable on all surfaces and felt broken-in from the first stride. Its resilient upper provides dynamic lateral support on technical terrain, and testers found its sticky Vibram sole flexible but not mushy. One complaint: A few testers could feel sharper objects underfoot on the trails. Weight: 6.2 ounces. [$110; newbalance.com]
