The New Balance MO889 Hiking shoe is what is says it is – a cross between a hiking boot and a running shoe.   This brown colored shoe with a distinctive orange colored N will support your feet well no matter what the terrain.

A number of retail online stores carry these shoes including Amazon. The shoes are relatively new and price does vary, so shop around for the best price. Hint: usually you will find the best price at Amazon.

If you are an outdoor person who hikes over varied terrian, i.e. - day hikes with a lightweight day pack, then this shoe will suit you well. Would not recommend this if you are doing multi-day backpacking trips with a fully loaded packs. Yes, people do use these shoes for those type of hikes, but I think you would be better off with full blown hiking boots in that case.

Pros:
  • Vibram outsole
  • ABZORB midsole
Cons:
  • One color - brown

These hiking shoes come with a grippy Viram sole. Probably the best feature about the shoe's sole is that the tread wraps around the sides of the shoes, especially up towards the front of the shoes. This means if you are walking on a sloped trail, you have some extra traction that you might not have otherwise with regular shoes or even running shoes. Also, the sole wraps up on the front of the shoes and provides the same grip. Since these are outdoor shoes, the upper material is meant for the great outdoors. The upper is made from suede and ripstop - nylon that uses a special reinforcing technique to minimize ripping and tearing. This means you have a tough shoe that is made from lightweight material that is breathable.

These hiking shoes use New Balance's trademarked ABZORB cushioning in the midsole to make for comfortable fit. This is the same material used in custom shoes made by New Balance. Regarding the durability of these shoes, there are welded seams in multiple places, double stitching to reenforce the connection, and a riveted shoelace for for the last insertion. These might seem like trivial additions. However, when you consider them together it is no wonder these hiking shoes are well rated by the people that buy and use them.

The New Balance MO889 for men is durable, rugged, good looking hiking shoe that will keep your feet comfortable over varied hiking terrain.
