Every runner understands the importance of footwear. I've had such bad experiences with Nike running shoes in the past (thank God they discontinued those awful 'shocks') and had permanently devoted myself to New Balance. I was really happy with NB- FOR ME. As we all know, running shoes, like all things, have a lifespan. I decided to give these a try and was amazed. Comfortable from the first day, perfect for my running style (switched from a mid-foot strike to ball-of-foot strike many years ago), and extremely light. I enjoyed them so much I ordered a second pair for when my first wear out in case they discontinue this shoe.
The only thing I would advise is: if you do end up ordering these, get 1/2 a size larger than your usual size. I got my normal size and it was just a tad tight, but I actually don't mind it. Add in the fact that I've only used them for a few weeks and they will 'break in' a bit more and I'm fine with it; just thought I'd include that for anyone who likes a roomier feel.
