    Comments about Mens New Balance Fresh Foam Vongo Running Shoe:

    I have put just over 70 miles into these shoes so far, and very pleased with the product. I have very flat feet, so the Vongo was a great choice over my other consideration (the Zante V2). The midsole is clearly larger than its counterpart, and the difference in feel is noticeable. The amount of cushion in the heel and forefoot works well for me. I'm very happy with these shoes.

    For reference, I run about 20 miles/week. Typically about 6 mile runs.

      Comments about Mens New Balance Fresh Foam Vongo Running Shoe:

      Way too little arch support and cushioning to be considered a stability shoe. That along with the shorter heal drop makes for a flat footed, shin splinty run. The one thing New Balance does consistently though is make properly sized shoes.

      Love the shoe. Great cushion and really like the 4mm drop. You just roll onto your forefoot. Very smooth transition.

        Comments about Mens New Balance Fresh Foam Vongo Running Shoe:

        I have put 125 miles on these shoes in the first month. I currently mix miles between these and a pair of Mizuno Wave Inspire 11's for a total of 200-225 a month. Previously I was having ankle soreness, especially on the inner ankle. They are now my go to trainers and have logged runs up to an including 24 miles without any noticeable issues caused by the shoe.

        They feel very comfortable on the foot and I find they fit fairly true to size. They offer good cushion under foot without feeling like being too much shoe. First marathon in these shoes will be in June.

        Comments about Mens New Balance Fresh Foam Vongo Running Shoe:

        I had to order this shoe online because it wasn't in store yet. New Balance says to size up to a 12.5 from my normal size 12 but I decided not to. When I got the shoe it still fit too big. I had to return it for an 11.5. This is a brand new shoe in their line up so i'm sure they're still figuring it out.
