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:

    I finally bought these while visiting SD. I've been pretty grumpy due to the heels wearing out far too soon. These aren't too bad, you can tell that the compound on the heel is harder than the rest of the sole surface. I weigh about 210 and only run about 10 miles a week, during good weather, I am a heel striker. So I got these in May 2017 and I'm about through the heel on these already and I haven't run for the past 2 months. I wish there is something better, but I haven't found it. ***** As a side note, while there one of the employees had me stand on a mat to see if I had even weight distribution on both feet. He said, after I had stood there for 15 to 20 seconds, that I had more weight on my right foot than my left. I said that it made sense as I had polio at age 7 (about 1958), he looked at me quizzically and said what's that? Lol These young folks have no idea.

    I've been running on the New Balance 1260 family and those similar models before it for years and years. New Balance is the only shoe that works for me. This latest purchase did not disappoint and all was good starting with the first run.

    Promising, but too narrow at the midsole for a 4E

    By Christopher

    from undisclosed

    Verified Reviewer

    Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

    This shoe was recommended by a supervisor at my local Road Runner store, as I have wide feet and most shoes in 4e width just don't cut it. This shoe one was promising, as it's light in weight, has decent volume, and has no overlays to aggravate the knuckles on my feet. Unfortunately, it's too narrow at the midsole, at least for my feet. To be fair, I've found that most 4E shoes are too narrow at the midsole, but they still don't work for me.

    These shoes may work well for you if you normally take a D or 2E, but it may be useful to try the next width up.

    I always rotate two pair of trainers and bought these to alternate with my GT 2000s. I wear 9.5 4E and found these to be quite a bit roomier than my Asics. Great cushioning, support, and comfort.

    This New Balance 1260v6 running shoe is by far the most comfortable, lightweight and attractive shos that I have ever owned. I am a true believer in the foam concept. I run about 30 miles a week & the shoe has proven to be all that I has expected from New Balance!

    Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

    Best shoe series for me, flat footed - over pronator. Started with 1226 and moved into this version. Long lasting shoe (450-550 miles). Never have laces come undone. Never had any breakdown in any aspect of the shoe. Been in the 1200 series for a loooong time. Always have a second pair ready as they tend not to be readily available in my size. I don't even consider any other shoe.

      Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

      I changed over from the Asics GT 2000 5 after trying it for a few runs and it didn't really work very well as compared to the earlier models. I ordered the NB and it was hard for me to order my true size after having to order 1/2 size up with the Asics. The NB 1260v6 fit perfectly for my true size. I have run in them about 6 times and so far they feel really good.

      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.
