We have reviewed several previous shoes in this general series, such as the MT875OR,/a> and the MT876. Yes, New Balance do keep coming out with new models every year or so, which can be a real pain, but I have to say there have been improvements along the way.
I mentions in my review of the MT876 shoes that the sole had improved (in my opinion) over previous generations, getting just that little bit stiffer. These shoes seem to have about the same stiffness in the sole as the MT876s, which is just about the right amount for us. The stiffness is enough to allow some edging on loose terrain and small scree.
Everyone kicks their toes into things. Earlier shoes had rather a buffer of heavy PU at the front - a bit too much in fact as that made the front of the shoe 'toe-heavy'. This has been improving through the two previous models, and the toe on these MT810s is quite light. The buffering is still very adequate however: I can kick things and suffer no pain. There is a bit of sewing visible at the toe which might suffer some wear, but it's a bit to the side and, I suspect, not structural.
