Perfect in every sense.

Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v5 Running Shoe:

Owned too many to remember "big guy" running sneakers. I'm 56. These are the best I've ever owned. Perfect in every sense. Although I ran a 1/2 marathon in my 30's, now I'm a 295 lb. walker. Such is life. Have flat feet. These sneakers even look "normal" on top. Baby boomers....take note! Review written by Mr. Richard D. Wellhung!

Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v5 Running Shoe:

Pleased by the amount of cushioning throughout the sole. Excellent motion control as expected. Use the widths offered I ordered the D and the toe box has more volume than I see in other brands. I will order a narrow next time.

Excellent stability shoe, which received approval from my Podiatrist. She recommended them after my surgery and so far they've worked well. They feel amazing so I bought a second pair for work!

Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v5 Running Shoe:

I usually wear a motion-control shoe for running and have been wearing NB cross-trainers for 20 years. These are a very comfortable and supportive shoe; although the upper is mesh instead of leather it keeps my foot square on the inner sole of the shoe. Just the right amount of cushioning as well.

Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v5 Running Shoe:

I own 3 pairs of the 1260V5. A previous review of mine stated this is a great shoe but I want to walk that back some. I have brand new V3s and V4s which I rotate along with the V5. The V5 is too loose around the ankle making the shoe a suboptimal running shoe. That said, the V5 is comfortable and a great walking shoe or for use around town/work. But, previous reviewers are correct about the V5 vs the V4/V3 models. I'm hoping the V6 corrects this problem while keeping the comfort of the V5. If you are a serious runner who likes a snug fit around your ankles the V5 is not the shoe for you. Again, I like the V5 for everything but running but this is a running shoe after all.

    Great stability and cushioning

    By Llibsenoj

    from Cleveland, OH

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Clearly a most stabile shoe.
    • Seven holes per side for laces insures snug fit

    Cons

    • Color doesn't look as bright as photo.

      Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v5 Running Shoe:

      RoadRunner's recommendation to buy a size up worked perfectly for me. No extra space in toebox. I wear real 12.5 and ordered 13. Width in forefoot worked well, too. Very colorful soles.

      Less of a springy cushion feel compared to the 1260v4

      By MJ

      from Devon, PA

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v5 Running Shoe:

      I am a casual runner who does 3-5 miles 3 or 4 times a week with the occasional flurry of long runs in prep for 10 mile or half-marathon race. I have worn 990's for several years before buying a pair of 1260v4's a little over a year ago...and I loved the 1260v4's. Therefore, when looking for my next pair of shoes, I wanted another pair of 1260's...but the v4's were gone so I bought the v5's. Although a good shoe that fits well, etc... I found that the wonderful cushiony feel of the v4's just wasn't replicated in the v5's. I wish I could go back in time and buy multiple pairs of the v4's

      Best Uses

        Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v5 Running Shoe:

        I have been wearing new balance running shoes for 20 years. I started with the 1220 and never stopped buying them. I've owned over 80 pairs of new balance shoes(I wear a pair to work and a different pair to walk/run) in my lifetime. The 1220 and 1223 were my favorite shoes until this 1260 V5. It simply blows all the other models away in terms of comfort while still maintaining stability and motion control. If you are a larger runner like me (235 pounds) this V5 model is the BEST 1200 series shoe they have ever made period. I usually wear a 2E or 4E width (4E in the 1260 V3 and V4) but the V5 is a bit roomier in the toe box area. In my opinion, a 2E is more like a 3E so the 4E is plenty wide for a running shoe. I usually add an insert (like a new balance insole 3020) but these shoes are that comfortable many will not need an aftermarket insert.
        I plan on buying quite a few more of these V5 shoes as they are fantastic. This is a must buy for anyone who likes the 1200 series from New balance. My only question is how the heck will NB ever beat this V5?

        Cons

        • Run Slight Small

        Best Uses

        • Racking Up Miles

        Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v5 Running Shoe:

        This is my first pair of New Balance road running shoes. When you open the box and view them the shoes scream quality. When you put them on and walk in them you immediately feel the stability. The cushioning is also very evident in the heel and forefoot. These qualities are accentuated when you begin to run in them (stability and cushioning). The outsole looks very durable as well. I try to rotate my shoes and am currently in a rotation of Brooks Ravenna 5 and these new balance 1260v5. With this rotation I can see these shoes lasting 4-6mos easily. I run 20-30miles a week.

          I walk and do some light running. This shoe is light, fits snug without being tight, doesn't slide around, has a very comfortable cushion feel and just all around a really nice shoe. I have no negative comments. Actually I came online to order another pair!!
