Description

Leave the pavement behind.

A rocky, winding trial is a very different animal from a subdivision sidewalk, which is why you need a trail-specific shoe like the New Balance Men’s 876 Trail Running Shoe when you make the break for the backcountry. A rugged outsole, toe protection, and extra stability and support are among your requirements now, and the 876 delivers, all summer long.
  • Rock Stop toe protection provides protection from sharp rocks and debris
  • Dual Density Collar provides both cushioning and support
  • N-LOCK external support system ensures shoe is pulled snugly around your midfoot
  • OrthoLite foam insert delivers long-term comfort, breathability, and antimicrobial function to fight odor over a long summer on the trails
  • Extra lightweight midsole cushions and resists compression for greater durability
  • Aggressive lugged outsole gives maximum traction for off-road activities.

Top Notch customer service

Really comfortable shoe. Made more for leisure activity and some light days on the trail (that don't require a ton of boulder hopping). I managed to forget my rock shoes on a 4-pitch route in Clear Creek Canyon, used these. Got down and the toe was falling apart. Called NB, and they shipped me a new pair before I even sent back the worn pair. No waterproof whatsoever, but the breathability is the focus and is much appreciated on hot summer days. Classic overall NB product.

Great Shoe

I have had these for a while now, and I use them as my everyday shoe.

I have wide feet with bad arches and these are pleasure to wear..Super light and breezy, no sweaty feet for me in these, regardless of the sock I have on underneath

The 876'ers

So far, so good. I've had the 876's for a few weeks with Sole footbeds added in for arch support. I can't really speak to them without the inserts, but they felt like they'd still be ok if you didn't have a high arch like I do.

PROS: They're light and fit true to size for running shoes (I go 1/2 size up from all my street shoes). The Debris-Free construction is awesome; instead of a tongue there's just a stretchy gusset across the instep to keep out dirt and pebbles. I haven't had any fit or friction issues with it. The Rock Stop plate also works as advertised, and the tread, while minimal, is great in anything but straight mud. The reverse tread in the heel works well on downhill sections. There's more cushion in the toe than in most trail runners I've tried, which is nice. The locking laces take a bit of getting used to, but once you know you don't have to over-tighten them, they are great.

CONS: The Lightning Dry lining is slippery at first, takes a few runs to break in but you'll have some heel slip at first. Moving from the North Face Fire Road, the 876's are slightly less stable in the heel, possibly because they have more cushioning; it's not a big deal for me but it might upset a heel-striker. They're also a bit hot due to fewer vents in the toe area.

Overall I am very pleased. I have a narrow heel and wider forefoot so it's hard to find the right fit. These remind me of my old Asics Trail Attack 3's but they are lighter, cushier and cooler in hot weather. They also look pretty sweet. I suggest you buy some.
