New Balance MT876 Running Shoe Review

Zachary Rodasti

Zach's been testing gear with Active Gear Review since day one of the site, and just generally loves being outside doing any outdoor activity. He and his wife race year round, prefer long distance endurance events, and have raced marathons in multiple states nationwide. Recently, Zach added triathlons to his list of endeavors, and has competed in all distances up to a half iron. He has two young boys who are full of energy and get into all sorts of trouble on a regular basis - just like him.

    New Balance’s new trail running shoe, the 876, is an update on the existing 875. Arriving in early 2010, the 876 has a new and improved tread pattern that provided great traction and protection without being obtrusive. The sticky rubber outsole prevented any slipping regardless of our dashing through mud, water and dirt. Winding through the trails, we were pleasantly surprised by the rubber sole’s ability to handle sharp rocks and roots while still giving us a feel for the ground.

    Running off-road, our testers are used to finding bits of the trail in our shoes but the 876’s no-debris tongue blocked everything, allowing for a smoother run. Combined with the synthetic/mesh upper, which allowed for superb breathability, and the quick dry liner, the 876 provided for a comfortable run. Overall the shoe is a great warm weather trail runner that held up very well in all areas of off-road running that we put them through.
