About this deal

And even though these shoes are built for speed, they’re also built to withstand the rigours of off-road adventures to keep you comfortable through every run. I’m a passionate runner, albeit it an ageing passionate runner, and love everything to do with running. Aimed at neutral runners looking to make the most of their libre adventures, it surprises with its versatility and excellent responsiveness.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

A new model in the New Balance lineup, it’s made with Fresh Foam cushioning in the midsole for a comfy ride, and the synthetic upper has Toe Protect overlays for durability and protection against trail debris. The next outing was 18 miles and this time also included some ascents and descents on rocky sections—not too steep but steep enough to test the flexibility of the shoe and how well it gripped the surface. Even so, the studded outsole should provide plenty of grip for mild trails, and the lugs are small enough for jaunts on the pavement, too.

I’m a UK size 9, and as the picture shows you, when I weighed the Nitrel v3 on my scales, it came in at 299 grammes. This second version features the thickest Fresh Foam midsole in the New Balance trail lineup, so you can expect a supremely plush ride (and the thick wedge of foam obviates the need for a rock plate). The underground feel was also good—I’ve had shoes that gave me a better underfoot feel of the ground and at the same time provide cushioning, but these shoes were way more expensive. The new New Balance Nitrel v4 combines design, performance and versatility to accompany you on your daily adventures, regardless of the terrain. The FuelCell SuperComp Elite v3 is a unisex shoe that provides you with stellar performance levels, run after run.

Throughout the run, my feet felt comfortable, secure, and well-supported—No painful parts whatsoever. It provides traction across a variety of terrains and keeps your feet protected when travelling over sharp stones and roots etc.

The Expert: I became a runner in middle school and have covered running and outdoor gear for years, both on-staff at Runner’s World and as a freelance journalist. With an engineered mesh construction for added ventilation, these breathable trail running shoes are built to withstand daily wear in the great outdoors. The New Balance Nitrel v4 trail running shoes are here, the latest interaction of one of the most successful sagas of the firm New Balance for the most intrepid mountain runners.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The brand uses the same midsole cushioning foams (more on those later) across its road and trail models, so you can create a similar running experience off the pavement. I aimed to test the Nitrel v3 for 200 miles (about four weeks) and on a variety of terrains, including tarmac, light trails, sand and technical ascents and descents; both in dry conditions and wet conditions.

We are experiencing a high volume of traffic at the moment, please bear with us whilst we load your page. On the tarmac, however, the Dynasoft foam was not forgiving and was especially noticeable while testing on concrete floors over multiple hours.Unfortunately, on receipt, it is more than obvious that these shoes have been previously been used outdoors (see pictures). I especially enjoyed the height of the upper surrounding the ankle which offered great support on the trails and reduced the potential for rolling ankles where the terrain got loose. The New Balance Nitrel v4 is true to size with just the right amount of toe box space that did not feel restricted.
