New Balance Men's Hierro V8


Our Take

The intention of the Hierro has always been to cover lots of ground on your trail running adventures but it is a great shoe for anyone who enjoys a little extra cushioning and comfort. Even better this year is a focus on the environment.  The Hierro now has the lowest carbon footprint in the New Balance trail line.

Blending a combination of environmental stability and performance, the newest version uses a Fresh Foam X midsole for ample cushioning and a Vibram Megagrip® outsole with Micro Traction lugs to deliver durable traction on both wet and dry terrain.  A slightly extended outsole in the heel area (although less than previous years) provides increased surface area for downhill running and the toe protect will take the sting out of those unwanted toe jams!


  • Midsole Drop - 6mm
  • Heel Stack – 38mm
  • Forefoot Stack – 32mm
  • Weight – 11.2oz


  • Synthetic/mesh upper with zonal TPU threads for added support and protection in high wear areas.
  • Toe Protect technology helps protect feet from rocks, roots and trail debris.
  • A Vibram MegaGrip outsole with Micro Traction lugs are made from a tough, durable compound that gives amazing grip on a variety of trail surfaces (this shoe feels sticky!!!)
  • Fresh Foam X midsole delivers plush cushioning for those who want a soft underfoot feel.
