Comments: Had 2 pairs of the v1 of the RC1600, loved them, ran several half and full marathons in them, and lots of hard fast workouts. They were really the ideal race shoe for me. Unlike Dave, I had no problems at all with the changes. The new tongue didn't cause me any issues or feel much different. I wear socks (he never said if he did or didn't but just throwing that out there), so not sure if that mattered, but everyone's feet are different. Eyelet holes seems fine with me, I always go one down from the highest holes and that worked again here. The one real thing I noticed as an improvement is that there wasn't any rubbing of my left pinky toe in the update, which is usually an issue for me, not just in the 1600. I don't know if that's because of the reduction of any seams, or that the forefoot was just a tad bit roomier, but I like it. Give this one a shot if you like the previous version or are looking for a great 1/2 or full marathon shoe.

Comments: The New Balance RC1600 is the first pair of shoes that I have purchased 3 pairs of. Honestly, I think that version 1 was just about the perfect shoe for me. Perfect weight, balanced heel to forefoot, comfortable upper, fit like a glove, looked great, and held up really well. Unfortunately, I have not been very happy with the changes for the v2. They look awesome and the bottom of the shoe is essentially unchanged (feels a hair softer, but I might have forgotten how the foam feels new). The trouble is that the new tongue has a stiff portion that rides up really high on your ankle and jabs into you as you bend. I had to cut a significant portion off of my pair and it still isn't perfect yet. The placement for the eyelets has also changed relative to your ankle (looks similar, but the upper shifts everything somewhat). I can't seem to find the same comfortable placement that I had on my old pairs and may end up making 2 new holes. The laces in the original version were perfec t and held your foot snug and were compliant without coming undone. The new laces are a lot thinner and are much less forgiving when you are trying to lace to the right tension. I would recommend that people buy the first version while they still can. Hopefully after some modification, these aren't going to be half bad. If it aint broke, don't fix it.
