Every now and then you come across a pair of shoes that make you want to take up some kind of extreme sport. For me, the New Balance MTG580 Gore-Tex has done that.

These babies feature Gore-Tex throughout the upper, and unlike their predecessor, which featured nylon around the toe, these are outfitted with leather so they are even more waterproof and sturdy. The New Balance MTG580 Gore-Tex is perfect for those races that take you all over the globe, or for walking the dog--whatever.
