I really wish they would stop with the color accents on the stitching. They did this on the v2 as well...it looks silly to me. There is nothing wrong with black stitching on a black shoe. The upper material on the V2 was brilliant, dunno why they changed it. Too bad about the "debri gap", but at least its not as bad as most vivos :D The thing I like most about the mt10 series is the sole. The shoe is light weight and still allows you to run on almost any terrain. Thanks for the review on the V3

I love to run in these shoes, but man are they stinky! So while yes, in theory you could wear them out and about, in practice I would not want to subject the public to them! Frequent washing and homemade coffee bean inserts keep them manageable in confined spaces.

I just tried some of these out from REI when I discovered I couldn't replace my beloved Merrell Trail Gloves (yeah, I know there's a version 3 or something of the Trail Glove out right now, but I hated it so much when I tried it on that I'm pretending it doesn't exist). Wore them around just walking for the day; initially had some discomfort in the forefoot area but the shoe stretched out and that got better. But the height and padding in the back in the Achilles area had rubbed me raw enough by days end that I just gave up. Doesn't seem to matter how I lace them, these apparently aren't the shoe for me. :( I don't have any idea what to try next, my local REI didn't have much minimalist selection and I'm hesitant to shop at a specialty running store, I guess I just find the idea intimidating. :D

Super bummed, because I really like the width of the toe box and the grip of the tread, would have made a great trail runner. I noticed the same problem though with the gap opening up with the foot flexes, would probably cause problems on the rocky trails in my area.

Was wondering if the tounge was stitched in or free floating in this version of the shoe? I have a problem with the tounge of the shoes I wear to fall completely and uncomfortably to one side or another.

Just tried my first run in these, and I totally swear by the v2's.

Massive disappointment. Heel rubs as they have removed the soft protective material, presumably to cut costs. Also the toe box is now protected by harder material all the way around the front so the shoe feels half a size smaller.

My impression is they have tinkered for the sake of it, or perhaps tried to cut costs.

A massive shame as the v2 was amazing.

I had the V2s and V1s previously. I have been through 7 pairs. Those were amazing shoes. These are a disappointment. I have run a couple times in these and the are to soft, with to much cushioning in the sole and have more problems with collecting dirt/pebbles etc because of the issue pointed out in the above review. The changes hurt the shoe rather than help it and certainly aren't worth the almost 2 extra ounces of material they have added into this shoe. The mesh upper is a tighter weave and less breathable. I don't like them as much. Unfortunately, there are no ta whole lot of better options available. In my opinion these are stil better than the trail glove. Racing flats are a little better but less durable.

I tried on some V3s at REI the other day and couldn't handle the narrower toe box. I have pretty wide feet and have found good shoes like the MT10v2, Merrell Trail Glove and Topo (not barefoot, but zero drop and WIDE. After a lot of internet searches I may have found the last pair of MT10v2s in my size. I should have bought 2.

@Miles:
Did you try the 2E width and they were still too narrow? I am a 4E and have the original MT00 (in 4E) which fit well, although they are very flimsy shoes. I also have the MO90 (more of a casual shoe) in 2E and they fit good. So I was wondering how the 2E in these MT10v3 shoes would be.

Heh... While they dramatically improved the aesthetics of this line with the "V3" of this shoe, there's issues with it. Upper's holding up, but the lugs and the shield trim on the shoes are popping off of the things at only 2-4 months of use, needing to be re-glued. (It should be noted that I wear my minimalist shoes *all the time*- because it helps with everything...not just running. I may be harder than the average person on my shoes...) Not as impressive as I'd had hoped there- my Merrell's, save one pair I beat the *HELL* out of are still with me (and technically so are they...just going to pitch them as the repairs are getting harder and harder) and I'm not playing "nice" with my toe shoes or minimalist shoes. I get 10-16 months per any given pair of shoes (whereas the regular stuff has to be pitched at 4 because I pronate like hell with the heel crap...)- and this has been anything else I've worn to date.

Could be a bad shoe off the line, but based on other reviews, I'm leaning towards poor fabrication choices, using a cheaper adhesive than they should have to shave a couple of pennies off their BoM.

I wanted to know if the shoe tongue was attached like the V1 was or is it "free floating?"

I hate when the tongue on the shoe floats around too much, and the V2 didn't have that, which made me sad and had to go out and find another shoe.

I've been through about 5 pairs of V2's and loved every one of them, but I can't find any more in my size. I've tried the V3's but they just don't work for me, too narrow/structured in the arch area, too narrow in the toe box. I have flat feet and the narrow back half of the V3's makes it feel like I'm walking on a balance beam. The sole design of the V2 was perfect as far as I'm concerned and I wish they would bring it back!

Does anyone have a recommendation for a shoe with a sole similar to the V2?
