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.
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
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.
