The New Balance 1210 v2 is a versatile trail running and ultra marathon shoe designed for a mild overpronated foot motion.


Take on all types of terrain in the 1210 v2.  Inspired by the Leadville Trail 100 ultra race, this shoe has all the tools you need for trail dominance.  A dual cushioning system in the midsole offers responsiveness and slight overpronation support, while a lugged Vibram outsole improves traction on uneven surfaces. A synthetic mesh upper is constructed to fend off dirt and debris so that your feet stay happy mile after mile.
