Product Description:

Men's NEW BALANCE® 1260v6 :: Yes, you can have the best of both worlds with the new Men's New Balance® 1260v6. Experience the perfect blend of cushioning and stability, getting loads of shock absorption from the full length ABZORB midsole, and a plush, bouncier feel at toe-off thanks to the additional drop-in of lightweight REVlite foam. You'll get a supportive fit from the strategically placed overlays that help hug your arches on long runs, short runs, and everything in between. Plus, the 1260v6's engineered mesh allows the toes to spread out in the forefoot, while still keeping your stability in check.

Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

Started off with New Balance shoes about 30 years ago. Ran the whole gamet of other shoes manufacturers such as Asics, Brooks, Mizuno, etc.,,.,,,,. Bought these shoe last week and took them for a 4mile spin yesterday. My feet and body felt like they said, thank you,,,,,,,for letting us go back home. The ride was soft, smooth and comfortable. It sure is good t be back home.

Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

I train in these shoes and use them for long distance running. The shoe has a lot of padding and has a wider toe box than other shoes I have used. The shoe feels a tad bit heavier, but the longer you run, the more you appreciate the trade off between weight and having a more cushioned shoe during your foot strike. I am 5'11" - 185 pounds.

Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

I have found in the past that anytime I move away from NB and this line (what has become the 1260V6), I start to get knee pain and/or shin splints. When I stay with these, everything is good. An absolute classic because of how good it's been for so long, it makes my shoe shopping easy.

Excellent Replacement for old Kayano's

By Martin

Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

I absolutely agree with the earlier review by JT-I too used to swear by Asics Kayanos (13E's) and it was last year or so that they dramatically changed the fit and were a no-go. I had a pair of Brooks GTS and they were fine but not great. I saw JT's review and tried these and he was spot-on, they totally remind me of the old Asics Kayanos and feel great.

    I was running in Asics Kayanos but felt I needed a change. These 1260's feel better, more supportive and cushion for my running which is 10-20 miles per week. Very happy to make the change from Asics to New Balance.

      Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

      Asics Kayanos had been by far the only shoe I'd wear. But they changed the fit somehow recently, where the 2E's felt like D's. I tried the 4E's which were just too wide. Looked at Brooks Beasts but I didn't like the weight and massiveness of that shoe. Slipped on the NB 1260v6 and immediately liked the comfort.

      Have been running in these for 3 months now and love them. I still use my Kayanos for errands and non-training use as I like to keep my training shoes for just training. And wow, I can't stand the Kayanos every time I put them on. So uncomfortable!! I have an arthritic toe, plantar fasciitis and other fun ailments. But the NB's allow me to do what I enjoy with less pain and after-effects.

        Similar to Asics Kayanos but how do I explain, with Asics my foot sank into shoe for cushion (heel rub !) and NB the pavement sinks into the sole for cushion (better control)...

        Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

        I have extremely flat feet and over pronate. To make matters worse I have a wide large foot. All that said, I have a limited selection of shoes. I have worn the brooks beast for years as it's just amazing for my lower back, knees, and feet. I bought this New Balance as a "maybe I can just wear it for a daily shoe" kinda purchase as I liked the look and style. Bad idea! My feet, my back, everything began to hurt almost immediately. My body did not like being all out of alignment. I regretfully returned the shoe and moved back to my favorite brooks beast.

        Styling: good looking shoe
        Comfort: light weight and seems cushioned
        Support: non existent for me
