I woke up at 3:00 am the morning of the PCT 50 Mile Ultramarathon and decided to break one of the oldest rules in long distance running. I wore a brand new pair of shoes, right out of the box.

New Balance 101 Trail Shoe and Similar Minimalist Trail Shoes

I really do not like New Balance running shoes. They look old, outdated and feel "clunky". That's why I resisted bringing the New Balance 101 into the San Diego Running Institute inventory. Then, after seeing enough runners out there on the trails sporting the 101 I decided to give New Balance a chance again. I brought in the new and very light 805, the 101 and the Trail Minimus. Today I compared the 101 to other minimal trail shoes. The Saucony Peregrine, Merrell Trail Glove and the Montrail Rogue Racer. Here are my thoughts;
