Evolution of the New Balance 110

Sorry to keep going on about this particular shoe but attached is a link to a great story on the evolution of the 110.  If you're a shoe geek, like me, you'll find it interesting.

I really like the feedback of both Erik's and Tony's desire for and approval of a more aggressive lug pattern.  I think what some people forget about aggressive lugs is that while they obviously provide better grip on the ups and the downs, they also provide cushioning.  So if you have a very minimal trail shoe, with very little midsole in it, but the shoe has very aggressive lugs, you therefore get a lot of cushioning.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the article.
