Customer Reviews

Comments:  Shoe feels great.  Great for a runner with no muscular imbalances or over/under pronators that feel they need tons of support in the arch and big pillows under their feet.  I train consistently in these, have run 2 half-marathons in them and they still feel great.  DSW has them in stock now for 69.99 in all sizes.  If you don't like these shoes, you either are not a real runner or you have tons of underlying imbalances that have been caused by past shoes, training, and lack of form.

Comments:  Absolutely love this shoe...lot's of cushioning and perfect fit. 5 miles the first day in total comfort. You just can't beat NB for fit and quality. Ordered a 2nd pair for back-up.

Comments: Like previous reviews, I too was disappointed with this shoe.  A couple of points not yet mentioned:  The shoes wear out quick!  On a positive note, the anti-untie shoelaces work well!

Comments: Do not buy this shoe. I am in the US Army and have to run as part of my physical fitness program. I have been running in New Balance for 5 years after a bad 3 pair experience with Nike. I went to the 1224 and it was no good after 2 months, so I switched to the 1063. From the time I took my first step they felt like combat boots. I took three short runs of 2.5 miles, 3 miles and 4 miles. All three runs produced pain in every part of my body, from the neck down. They should be called New Balance BRICKS! I will not purchase New Balance in the future. They lost a loyal customer. On a positive note, I contacted Running Warehouse and explained my situation to the customer service rep. Due to the fact that I'm in Iraq, we had to email back and forth. They were extremely helpful and are refunding my purchase as soon as these NB Bricks are returned. I highly recommend that you use Running Warehouse as your online running source.

Comments: Wow, the difference between this shoe and a Mizuno is like night and day. The New Balance are hard, firm and after a run I know I have done a run. Not happy at all with this shoe. I am sorry I decided to purchase it. I did purchase them for the size (narrow). I will not be buying any more of this shoe. It is also heavy.

Comments: This shoe is not really what I expected it to be. It has a very firm ride. It is not really a good cushioning shoe. I have been running in a lot of Asics and Nike shoes that are quite a bit softer. I do like the fit. The shoe hugs my foot very well, but I would not recommend it based on the firm ride.
