Comments about Mens New Balance 1221 Running Shoe:

I have am a 6'0 190 lb male. These are the best shoes that I have ever owned. I used to suffer from Shin Splint from running with Asics or Nike but these shoes are greatly cushioned with max protection for overpronators.

Comments about Mens New Balance 1221 Running Shoe:

New Balance consistently lags behind the competition in updating its shoes and this is no exception. The 1221 is a workhorse, competent yet far from thrilling. I wore this model for years, and the 1220 previous to that, until I discovered the much cushier, better supporting, and constantly improving offerings from Asics. The Asics seem to hold their cushioning longer too. There is nothing wrong with this shoe; just that there's better out there to be found.

Comments about Mens New Balance 1221 Running Shoe:

I'm not a big fan of the 1221 after having run in the 1220 for several years. They don't seem to have the cushioning or stability of the 1220 for my build (low arch, 190 pounds).

Comments about Mens New Balance 1221 Running Shoe:

Great shoe... too bad it's obselete. Unfortunately, the new version, the 1222s, don't feel as stable. I've gone through 4 pairs of this shoe and have loved it for years. One of the best shoes I've run in. I've moved on to the Adidas Adistar Control, which has a different feel (more cushioned) and doesn't have as much stability in the heal, but I love it as well. Farewell 1221, you've served me well.

Comments about Mens New Balance 1221 Running Shoe:

I ran with this show for approx 2 years. I moved from the 1220 to this one. The 1220s would last me maybe 3 - 4 months (heavy weight runner 230 - 260). My shoes went from last 3 - 4 months to 6 - 9 months. These weren't bad. On to the 1222
