Product Description:

Women's NEW BALANCE® 1260v6 :: Yes, you can have the best of both worlds with the new Women'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 Womens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

    Never has New Balance until I bought this shoe. Immediately after purchasing I went walking and hiking four the next 4 days while visiting my kids in California. No break in necessary. So comfortable, my feet were never tired or aching. Love them so much I bough a second pair. On my feet a lot for work so they are perfect for work and play. Fit my hard to fit wide feet great.

    Comments about Womens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

    This is my 4th pair of the 1260v6 and they are as good as the first pair. I've run 4 marathons in this version and had no feet issues what so ever. In this version of the 1260s I did not size up as I had in the v2-4 of this shoe. This version runs much bigger in my opinion.

    shoe too long; arch in wrong area

    By Marnie

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Womens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

    I really have liked the 1260 show in V3 and V4. V5 was redesigned and not up to the other standards. Now in V6 they seem to have gone back to the V3 and V4 style. Good job! Unfortunately, the same size I've worn in all other three versions is not too long in the arch. It was explained to me that the V6 toebox is the largest yet on the 1260 shoe. Since I did these by mail order, I'll have to change them. I'm glad the old style is back, but wish the fit would have been what I was expecting.

    Stiff, not enough cushion, large. Looking for a substitute for my beloved Asics Kayano, now that they have messed up the toe box. This is NOT the shoe.

    Comments about Womens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

    Never tried a NB shoe before. My normal size if a 9.5 N and sometimes have to go to a 10N. I ordered a 10 N in this shoe and it fits well. One thing I like about the shoe is that the toe box is not too small which sometimes is an issue when you need to order narrow shoes. The shoe is comfortable,

    Comments about Womens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

    Wore New Balance eons ago and decided to venture back to try the 1260's. I'm sorry I did. These are bizarre shoes. I need an exceptionally wide toe box, and these are OK on that score. But the heel is just crazy big and the top hits exactly on my ankle bone, causing the skin to rub off. Had I saved the box I would have returned these! Arrgghh! What a waste.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Service was timely and goods appropriately boxed.

        Comments about Womens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

        This has been a wonderful addition to my running program. After failing to find a substitution for the Kayano 23, which changed dramatically, finally found a shoe that is cushioned enough and has a lot of stability without being clunky. This is my new go to shoe. Ordered another pair!! Just wish they came in some colors that might WOW!! Love the shoe and would highly recommend it!!

        A bit wider than other New Balance shoes I've had

        Comments about Womens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

        As always, New Balance shoes feel great, however this shoe was a bit too wide for my narrow foot even with a thicker sock & making an extra loop to snug it up. I ended up sending these back in exchanged for a 1080 v7 which has been a better fit for me. Thank you Road Runner for your "love them or send them back" guarantee.

        These shoes are great! Had the version 5 and upgraded to the 6. Mainly use for power walking but have started using some for running. Very stable. I wear the narrow and wish the blue/teal color was sold in narrow as well.

        Comments about Womens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

        I like these shoes a lot, the only reason I did not give them 5 stars is that the ankle cup hits a little high on me and can be irritating. Otherwise, they fit great, are light but supportive & are well cushioned.

        I like the fit, cushion and stability of this shoe. I wasn't satisfied with the shoe laces. I had to put different ones in to help hold the tongue of the shoe in place while running. I would buy this shoe again despite the faulty laces.

            I've been running in 1260's since they came out....I switched from the Saucony Hurticane because they changed the shoe. The cushioning is great in these but they are much more narrow at the toe box. Actually, the entire shoe is more narrow. I like to have space in the toe box and prefer a fabric that gives a little so my toes don't hurt or feel cramped. I sent them back for a size up but am realizing this is no longer the shoe for me. I'm so upset because I really wanted to love them after skipping V5.
