Running Shoe Review: New Balance Summit

New Balance Summit K.O.M

  • Shoe Type: Trail running
  • Drop: 8MM
  • Weight: 310g
  • Price: £100

 

Overall fit & Profeet thoughts

The heel counter locks in securely so those with a wider heel or ankle may be cautious of this. The way the Rockstop and midsole work together allow a slightly rockered feeling where the natural flex point of the shoe is very welcome when running on firmer ground.

 

 

  1. Upper: The upper uses a synthetic mesh combination so there is more accommodation around the widest part of the forefoot, they then use a firmer overlay to aid the security of the midfoot. Firmer toe guard also helps to protect against rocks and debris.
  2. Midsole: The K.O.M used an EVA compound REVLite which maintains a responsive feel into the forefoot while still being slightly firmer than other comparative trail running shoes.
  3. Outsole: The K.O.M uses a newly designed Vibram outsole allows multi directional traction for when you’re running on unpredictable terrain. There is also a ROCKSTOP plating to protect the foot from rocks or sharp objects
