"These shoes are quite fantastic. They look great and fit nice but are slippery when wet."

"These shoes are just plain awesome. Stylish, waterproof, insulated. I have only two gripes: 1) They are a little short and narrow compared to my other sneakers. Be advised that if you're used to the fit of a competitor's shoe, you may want to go to a store to try these on. That said, they have stretched into a very comfortable pair of sneakers over the last few weeks. They fit well with dress, athletic, and trail socks, but they're tight in extremely thick wool socks. Be advised if you're planning on making these a staple of your winter wardrobe. 2) As mentioned by a previous reviewer, the rubber is not very grippy on slick surfaces. They seem to handle wet pavement fine and the tread pattern makes these handle really well in snow, but slick ice is a real problem. I hit a black ice patch wearing these on a walk with my dog last week and I almost went down. Even with the fitting concerns, I'd give a 5/5 if New Balance partnered up with Vibram to get their new slip-proof rubber."

"I bought one for myself and another for my friend. Both of us realized how comfortable a shoe can be. Nice looking shoes with very comfortable fit."

"Like others have said, looks are on point and overall comfort is fine. The one gripe is that traction is extremely poor in wet conditions. Even just on wet asphalt I have to be mindful of slipping. Any type of road striping/paint or smooth floor surface and I lose all traction. The traction issue really disappoints as this is marketed as an outdoor shoe. No issues in dry conditions."

"Could not be happier with the way the shoes look, feel, and perform. Everyone always asks if I customized them and compliments their "original" look. Liked the tan so much I also bought the white. 10/10 recommend the Trailbuster Re-engineered."

"Comfy shoe. Took a little time to break in. First pair had a bad right shoe where the foot bed was not glued in line with the rest of the shoe. New Balance sent a new pair that was great. I wanted a good sneaker that would be comfortable with a relaxed fit. My only wish would be a welded tongue to keep it from moving around."
