Comments: Ran 22 in them today. Worked well, much roomier in the forefoot than the 890 v2. I hope the next version lowers the drop to 8mm. I think it would be my perfect shoe if they did that. Cushioning was great, little bit of stability works for me, and i love that they are nice and light.

Comments: Been running in 1190's for about 2 months,about 500 miles split between 2 pairs. Ran in the 903's for 2+ years (16 pairs). The 1190's have been working out well, similar to the 903's. At this point the con, still hard to get into them, could be the flat laces???? If you need a lite shoes with cushioning, this shoe will serve the purpose!

Comments: After 3 years in the Asics 2150/60/70s, I thought I'd get a lighter show for my speed workouts. The NB 1190 is definitely light and has a wide toe box, which is great for those of us with wide feet. Turns out I like it so much that I can't even wear the Asics anymore - they feel like boots! I hope this shoe proves durable. And I hope they offer more colors other than Ronald McDonald!

Comments: Got these a while back as a faster road/workout shoe (I normally run in the Asics Gel-Kayano). They are pretty cushioned, with a moderate amount of support, and feel way lighter and faster than the Kayanos. I've run up to about 7-8 miles in a workout with them, and so far, no issues, though they look like they're breaking down a little faster than the Kayanos (but I would expect that from a lighter shoe).
