New Balance T690v1 Trail Run Shoes - Men's 5044-486


Show Description

When speed is essential, the bare essentials (and a little cushion) is all you need. With a neutral platform and a nice bit of cushion, these trail runners give a fast and fun feel when you’re navigating flowy singletrack or rocky riverbeds. Gusseted tongues and ruggedly lugged outsoles provide comfort and traction over technical terrain.

  • Synthetic uppers are no-sew construction for reduced weight and a locked-in fit.
  • Gusseted tongues keep debris from creeping in.
  • Reinforced toes prevent painful toe stubbing.
  • EVA injected midsoles are cushy, comfortable and stable.
  • Speed Ride soles provide shock absorption in a lightweight package.
  • Rugged outsoles combine trail and road running lugs for solid grip over changing surface types.

Ideal for Trail running

Some shoes include added motion control or stability features to help minimize pronation or supination, where the foot tends to roll inward or outward in a biomechanically imbalanced running position.

Upper material Synthetic
Closure Lace-up
Heel-to-toe cushioning

The approximate thickness of the midsole cushioning under the heel and the forefoot. A thicker heel and greater difference between heel and toe height tends to suit heel-strike runners, while forefoot and midfoot strikers may prefer a minimal drop between heel and toe cushioning.


The drop is the difference in height between the heel and the forefoot midsole cushioning. Traditional running shoes tend to have a 10mm drop or higher while minimalist style shoes are on the lower end of the spectrum.


Waterproof shoes and boots feature a waterproof-breathable membrane and a gusseted tongue to help keep your feet dry in wet conditions.
