Here'a another offer for you out there with wide feet, as you will know New Balance have long catered to this audience and continue to do so with their Fresh Foam Arishi Trail V1. Unfortunately though, that may be where the fanfare ends. Don't get us wrong, these are not a bad shoe, but they just aren't a trail running shoe in our humble opinion.

Let's look at the positives: they look smart with plenty of colour options for anyone's taste, they're lightweight, have a reasonable toe box with Toe Protect which is a nifty feature, and they certainly won't break the bank. However being the trail loving people we are, these just don't measure up in the cushioning and support categories that are oh so important when you're getting into the wilderness for some trail action. We found the "Fresh Foam" was just too soft for what we'd consider effective for trail running, they were really quite soft and we felt they lacked as an all around snug fitting trail shoe which is key for that level of activity.

It's a shame really as these shoes do have a fair bit going for them otherwise, but for the true trail fans we'd recommend other options. If you're simply looking for a casual walking shoe that's comfy and you're not asking too much from, this is a great budget friendly option that will happily perform on that Sunday morning stroll to grab a coffee!
