Customer Reviews

Comments: Love these shoes. Have been running in these for 4-5 months now and they're great for everyday runs and even for faster workouts. I have even used them during a marathon. I highly recommend them. They have enough support and are pretty light for training shoes.

Comments: Great shoe for intervals, tempos and faster workouts. Plenty of cushion in lightweight package. Shoe runs very narrow. I am on the borderline of D and EE normally. Tried the D and it was way too tight. Tried the EE and it was still too tight. Had to go to 4E to get the right width. The length is about 1/4 size small. So sizing this shoe can be difficult IMO. If you get the right size, this is a very comfortable shoe. Stats - 5'7" 130 lbs, 50 miles per week.

Comments: I was really disappointed with this update. The V3 in my mind was a perfect shoe. It was light but still protective. The heel drop was not too steep. I run 80-95 miles per week. Changing to the V4 was a bad experience as the wide heal was restrictive, and despite saying it was lighter, it felt much heavier. I do not know it the wider nature of the shoe makes it feel heavier, or if it is not reported with the proper weight. I love New Balance products. But there is a demand for the V3 type of shoe. Hopefully NB brings that shoe back.

Comments: Having previous bought the original and v2 of the 890, I was looking forward to getting the v4 because I really liked the two previous version and the v4 was listed as weighing only 8.1oz (significantly less than the other two.) I wore a 9D with the previous models but taking the shoefitr recommendation to go half a size bigger I ordered the 9.5. The shoefitr recommendation was dead-on as the 9.5 fit fine. However I was shocked when I weighed the v4 and found it weighed 10.66oz. Now In know shoe companies often fib about the weight of their shoes, but 2 1/2ozs! Since I liked the two previous versions of the shoe, which weighted about the same anyway, I kept the v4. I you like liked the previous versions of the 890, you will like the v4. It gives a cushioned and flexible ride. However, if you are buying this model because of the listed weight, you'll be disappointed.

Comments: Great update NB. This 890 v4 definitely runs a half size short. Wish NB would make it a standard fit. Helps when ordering on-line. Great lightweight feel. Protection of a daily trainer, but feels racing flat like, almost! Hope NB makes the tongue a little thinner next version. The laces are a tad short. I'm a heel striker and I have almost worn through the black rubber on the heel after only 50 miles. Hope the next version has a more durable heel. Even with a few short comings. All-in-all a fantastic shoe.

Comments: Almost a perfect shoe. Very light, responsive, and comfortable. All New Balance has to do now is shorten and thin the tongue like the NB 1600, and curve the last a bit more. Well done New Balance!
