Shoe fits fine, terrible color combination - only went for it because the description said "navy", actually a dark green. Not happy

      The New Balance 1260 v4 was a great shoe. The v5 had too high an arch and the v6 falls off the heel. Can't they leave a good shoe alone?

      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!!

      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.

      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.

          Comments about Womens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

          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.

          I read other comments on how this shoe improved runner's knee pain so thought I would give these a chance. They do not work for me. As a matter of fact, achilles pain which I had several years ago is back after wearing these. Not impressed. Think I'll go back to my Mizunos.

          Agree with other reviewers that have said that the cushioning of this shoe is back to what it was. I was disappointed in the v4 & skipped v.5 all together. Tried this shoe and found it fits great & definitely has better support. I wear a pair for working out almost daily & wear different pair for my second workout which is my job! I'm on my feet nearly all day and walking, up and down, etc. Love these shoes so far!

              Comments about Womens New Balance 1260v6 Running Shoe:

              I've run in the 1260's for years. I stock piled the v4's and used them with no trouble through 7 marathons and their training cycles. I never bought the v5. I initially ordered the v6 in a 9 wide, the exact same size as I had used on all 6 pairs of the v4's I had run in. The v6's were so big my feet were swimming in them, with almost an inch of length in front of my big toe and very loose on the sides. Even after inserting my arch supports I could barely tighten the laces enough to keep my feet from moving around. I tried running in them, but they didn't feel any better after 10 miles. I replaced them with a pair of 8.5 wide and these fit perfect! So comfortable. They seem a bit wider than the v4's, but not uncomfortably so. I love the bit of padding they added in the middle of the tongue. I have a high instep and sometimes shoes can rub a bit right at the middle of the top of my foot. Not a problem with the v6's. So, once I got the correct size, all looks good.

                I have been waiting for the v6 to come out. i have been running in the 1260's forever, and the v5 was awful. i run everyday and have never had a problem, but NB obviously did something different with the V5. i even tried other brands while waiting for the v6, and new balance is still the best shoe for me. i had knee pain, which i never experienced before. I have been running in this show for about 2 weeks now and my knees are getting back to normal. pain is almost completely gone. this feels like the other predecessors before the v5. thank you NB for correcting whatever you did. I LOVE LOVE these shoes. comfort, cushion, stability, and best of all, bye bye knee pain.

                  Just received the v6. Purchased my regular New Balance size, although the v5 was a bit short, and also bought a half size up. The regular size fits, like the v4. I will be returning the half size larger for another color in my regular size.
                  Cushioning is better than the V5, walked my regular 1 1/2 miles without any problems.
                  Thank goodness they made improvements over the 5 with more cushioning and back to regular sizing.
