Customer Reviews

Comments: I like the 1340, it's a great running shoe. It's flexible, stable, well cushioned, and fits my foot well. It's a more streamlined motion control shoe for people who don't need a big tank. If you like New Balance and the 1540 is more shoe than you need or want, give the 1340 a shot, it may be the shoe for you.
