    Comments about Mens New Balance 890 Running Shoe:

    Received an early pair of these and was doubtful that such a light weight shoe (under 10oz) would give me all the cushioning I need at my age (54).

    After several 10 mile runs in these shoes I am more than confident that I can throw away my old heavy cushioned shoes. I may even buy another pair of these in another color!

      Comments about Mens New Balance 890 Running Shoe:

      Normally run 20 miles per week averaging 5+ miles per run. Have tried a lot of trainers and normally use the ASIC ds 15/16s. Just had two runs in the 890's and couldn't believe how much forefront cushion there was. My feet usually are tired after the run but not with the 890's. I have had to use inserts with the asics for slight pronation but haven't used them in the 890's and have had no problems. The normal con of not lasting that long doesn't bother me since the trainers are 30% less than top of the line, price wise, other shoes. Give them a try, it's worth it.

        5'8 165lbs. High arch, neutral runner. In the first week of owning them I ran 40 miles in them, with a long run of 20. Comfortable, great cushioning, breathable, no problems like hot spots, blisters, or any discomforts; which is a first for me in any shoe. They are durable enough for everyday use. The tread is different than the past NB shoes that I've worn and I feel like it won't wear out as fast. Unlike most daily trainers, they are not clunky. Time will tell, but so far I feel like this is the best running shoe I have owned in the past 10 years.

        Out of the box, on to my feet and ran a 10.2 mile black top run. I could not ask for much more. I did have some issues with a hotspot in the forward area of the ball of my left foot. Since I have never experienced this before I have to say that the feel of a larger (wider) toe box may be the culprite. I changed to a different sock and tightened down on the laces a bit and repeated the run a few days later and the problem was gone. I love these shoes for speed and distance. Another pair is in my near future. Price is a great value for the performance.

        Great new NewBalance fit, I'm rotating this in with my Nike Pegasus and Brooks Glycerins. I felt that the shoe fit was standard, I usually go up a size and it stayed the same on this one. I did feel that it ran a tad bit wide but thats normal on a NewBlance shoe. I wouldn't suggest this to a heavy runner, I believe a little more serious runner will enjoy this fit and feel. I wasn't happy on how the traction was on wet cemet and grass. It felt as if I was sliding around in it.

          I wanted a fast shoe that still had the support for 20-25 miles a week. Took them out of the box and went for a 3.5 mile run. My pace was faster than I've ever had on that route. They felt great, excellent grip, very light. I'm excited to log some miles on these shoes. Can't wait for my next race.

            Age: 54, height, 5'7", weight 135 lbs, run about 40-45 miles/week, primarily 5k's on the road.

            This is a great light weight(9.6ounces) shoe for light runners as it disperses shock when doing long runs. You can use for tempo and interval training if desired as it weighs the same as some performance neutral shoes.

            The only negative is it is a bit narrow. I wear a 2E and could tell the toebox is somewhat narrow. I recommend New Balance make a 4E version or widen the 2E for a comfortable fit.

              durable comfortable excellent shoe. I have 2 pairs 1 with 550 miles and 1 with 100 miles on them. Not one complaint. It's about time to hang up the higher milage shoe but I've had other brands that didn't last close to that long. My next pair of shoes will be another pair of 890s. For the record I'm 5'9" 160 lbs. Runs 40 plus miles a week.

                This is a great shoe, and the first light weight running shoe in wide widths that I have found and liked. I am an avid runner with 2 IM's and 4 marathons under my belt, and am currently training for another IM in November and Marathon in January. I have been through lots of different shoes and this is my new favorite. It is super light, very fast, and durable. It fits slightly snug in the toe box compared to the other New Balance 2E width shoes I wear. The snug fit is not terrible, but it is noticable. I was nervous about the snug fit at first, but I now like it. I have run on these 890's for 5 months now and I am buying another pair. I would buy 2 more pairs of these shoes if they came in better colors. I hope that the new versions have a better color designs in the 2E widths. This is the first "race" shoe I have owned since light weight racing flats do not address the market of runners like me. Great shoe, and New Balance almost got this one perfect, better color choices and this will be the only shoe I use in the future.

                    My first use of lightweight running shoes. I am 5'11" and 185 pounds, and always wore heavily cushioned shoes. Recent arthroscopic knee surgery has encouraged me to focus on mid-foot/forefoot running, and my old thick-heeled shoes made this difficult and uncomfortable. The 890s have been perfect for me - Light weight and lower heel make mid-foot running much easier and take stress off my knee and Achilles. Fit is good (usual NB 1/2 size up). I don't know about durability yet, but so far so good!

                    175# neutral gait, high/rigid arches. First thing I noted was that the toe-box felt narrow/tight for my taste. Has lots of forefoot cushioning, maybe too much. I felt a bump on the ball of my foot because of this. Some people may like this. They do feel very light and fast. They are nicely cushioned, but felt loose. Upper feels like cheap running shoes. I'm used to Nike Pegasus 27s and Kinvaras if that helps. I can see this as a very nice shoe for a light-midweight runner with normal arches that wants a light training shoe.

                    Right out of the box, these shoes felt different. In a good way. For the last three years, I've been faithful to NB 880 series (883 latest). It's a cushioned shoe, kind of heavy (12.2oz), large toe box built on a sl-2 last.
                    I wanted something lighter and the 890 is darn near perfect. Well cushioned but fit's a bit snug. I ordered 1/2 larger.

                    These shoes feel next generation. I've only had three runs so can't comment on durability. I agree with all and think you'll be pleased.

                    For the record, I'm 59 and have been running for over twenty years. I have a high arch and I'm a mid foot striker. Enjoy.

                    Like the lightweight feature of the shoe and the color. Have to get used to the thin shoelaces again which seem to come untied (even double knot them). Has a lot of cushion for such a light shoe.

                    Offers great support and cushion for a lighter weight shoe. As a big runner, you don't get a chance to run in shoes this light and comfortable very often. Best pair of shoes I've ever run in.

                      Great shoe with ample cushioning for the weight. They don't feel squishy which many similar cushioning shoes do. I manage 60-70 weekly miles and about 40 of them have been in this shoe, so far I'm a fan.

                        These shoe were bought for our 14yr old son who wears a 14 1/2 extra wide. Not only does he need the support and durability he also needs s great looking shoe for being a teenager! He generally wears the shoes for football condition and running after school. They have held up great, and says they feel great, also! No Complaints here.

                          This lightweight shoe is the most durable I have worn. Comfortable and snug fitting, it perpetuates the desire for distance days in my regimen whether it be running trail and/or road courses. At last a shoe has been found that I can stick with and wear as long as there are miles to be run.

                            I am a rec runner who uses these shoes to run intervals and races 5k/10k. I found this shoe to be comfortable and VERY lightweight. I was worried about the durability of it, but so far it's been solid. I will/would buy this shoe again. I look at this shoe as a good training/race shoe. You'll find lighter shoes, but not one that you can train in as the NB 890. Great job NB, you have won me over Nike again.

                              If you want to go lightweight without sacrificing comfort.........this is your shoe. I run 20-30 miles a week and was looking for a lighter shoe, but didn't want a minimal shoe, so I slipped these bad boys on and haven't looked back. Great fit and cushioning while running (without being too much). Lightweight for a shoe in this category. I haven't owned them long enough to testify as to their durability. Highly reccomended.

                                Goodbye Nike Vomero's, there is a new kid in town! I've been "off and on" on NB for most of my running "life" (which now spans more than thirty years) and have been fairly disappointed up until this shoe. While I only have about a week and about 35 miles on the shoes, they have exceeded my expectations. They are cushioned, but not overly cushioned -- but coming from the Vomero's I find them really comfortable. A great shoe. I just ordered a second pair!

                                      I am in the military and currently station overseas. I have purchased the brooks green silence, saucony kinvara size 13. I was excited about the 890. First run an 8 miler on the treadmill. Shoes felt a okay with thorlo socks. The next morning took shoes for a 12 miler with RRS thin socks. I thought I was drowning. I stop 3 times trying to make them super tight. I will return the shoes but try an 12 1/2. This is just to give them an honest try since I was a loyal fan of the newbalance 820 series. I surely miss them!

                                      I was hoping that these would become my everyday trainers after putting over 800 miles on my pair of 769s. The fact that they were specifically designed to be lightweight was the big draw for me. Unfortunately NB seemed to have decided to make them very narrow and the pair of 2E that I ordered are significantly narrower than past NB 2E models (by almost a 1/2 inch). Therefore they are too narrow to wear which is a shame because besides the width, they felt good and seem like they would be great for someone with narrow feet.
