    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

          Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

          I followed the advice of a different reviewer who said the sizing compared to prior versions of the 1260 was different. So I ordered the size 1/2 size smaller than usual at 11.5 2E width. It still feels a slight bit longer and a bit narrower than the 1260 version 4 that I already have in 12 2E. I think some of this is from a plastic side strap that goes on the outer side of the shoe that is not present on the older version I have and it presses right on the 5th metatarsal. I feel like my heels slip more than they did in prior versions of the shoe. Combined with superfeet orange this is very cushy, but a bit narrower than I would ideally have. I'll keep it but I preferred the older version.

          I'm a 195 lb low mileage runner. The shoe fit is consistent with previous versions, so I appreciate the size consistency. It has a better heel cup then v5 (my heel doesn't tend to slide up). Nice big toe box, good cushion, good motion control, light weight.

            I have been wearing the 1200 series since before the 1222. I was dissatisfied once (can not remember the version, problem was removal of cushioning). However the following version I came back not being able to find a suitable substitute. I purchased 2 pair of the 1260v4 size 12D (fit perfect) sometime around 4/15. I purchased 1 pair of the 1260v6 approx. a month ago and have to send them back because they fit at minimum 1/2 size to big, at max 1 full size to big. However I am ordering 2 pair of the 11.5 1260v6's. I am a fan

              NB 1260v6 immediately became my favorite of the series. I started with the 1260v4 and liked it quite a bit, but the v6 is a clear homerun. I purchased, as recommended, a half size larger than my normal size and the fit is superb. These are the real deal. I bought an additional pair as a hedge against the v7. There is just no way to improve upon this shoe!

              Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

              I would rate these running shoes a FIVE STAR rating but I had to return them because they run large. I normally take a 10.5 2E. In fact, I own two other NB versions and both are size 10.5 2E and both fit fine. These NB 1260v6 run large in length. I returned them for the 10 2E. Other than the sizing issue, the shoes were comfortable when tried on right out of the box. If you order this version, order down one-half size. The THREE STAR rating results from the Running Expert not being an expert on sizing. Hope this is helpful to other buyers.

                I have 100 + miles on my first pair and will soon be receiving the second pair. Thoroughly enjoy the shoe!!

                Will stock up since it is a hassle to transport shoes from the US to EC.

                That being said -- I have run in Asics 11D since the 1980's But did not like the successor to the GEL MC so tried NB 1260 v6. Ordered 11 D and then saw the small note to up size 1/2 size. NOT for me -- the 11's worked fine. Especially like to way the last lace slot allows for me to adjust fit to my smaller foot.

                Comfortable, good cushion, no blisters, abrasions. Just do not know I have them on. I can be as aggressive as I feel on any given day.

                Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

                I'm an avid runner that puts 15-20 miles a week with many races under my belt. For starters I do not recommend buying a half size up in this shoe I've been wearing a 9.5 for many years so I decided not to take there advice and order my usual 9.5. Turns outs the new 1260 v6 runs a 1/2 size to big so fit experts not up to date on this one. Without having the right size hard to comment on performance, however seems the heel sits a bit high on this shoe with little support. Not sure how people can have raving comments about a shoe that came out a week ago.

                I am new to running. So I am doing the run/walk. Right now my shoes has around 6 miles on them. They feel great. The problem that I had in the past was that my feet would hurt after running. I do not have that problem with these shoes. Right now I am running on an asphalt/concrete track at a local park. The over all feel of the shoe is amazing. So far I have not been able to find a flaw unless it is like all my other shoes and get warn quickly. But it is to early to tell. Also the actual color I wanted was not available in my size but that has nothing to do with the shoe itself.
                With all of this said I want to give a big thank you to the road runner sports staff for helping me# find the right shoe for me.
