Customer Reviews

Comments: Love, love these shoes! I have a wider forefoot and higher arches and these shoes fit me perfect. I ran 10 miles in these the first day without any issues, they feel like a sock on my feet with the stretchy material.
From: Christine, San Luis Obispo, CA

Comments: I thought the shoe fit 1/2 size smaller than my usual running shoe just as the site (and a new balance sales rep) suggested. The shoe box is slightly bigger/lower than the last version of this shoe so i found it a much better fit for my wider foot than the V2. Overall, a great update to an already great shoe. LOVE IT!!! A great lightweight everyday shoe.
From: Christine R, Toronto, ON, Canada

Comments: This shoe runs narrow in the toe area and on the small size. RunningWarehouse suggests buying a half size smaller because the shoe runs big. I found just the opposite to be true. I ordered a 9.5 as I always do. That's what I wear in most other running shoes, except for Saucony, which run small. These were too short--I could have taken a size 10. Although the toe box itself was wide enough, the pointy shape of the end of the shoe squished my toes. My foot runs narrow as it is. These must be for people who have really, really feet. These are not designed for normal shaped feet.
