Comments about Womens New Balance 766 Running Shoe:

This is the first NB shoe I've worn in years so no comparison with the 765. I thought the heel was going to be wide but no slippage even with the laces comfortably loose. The straighter shaped last fits my foot well and the stability is just what it should be for this type shoe. The outsole seems to be holding up well and I'm kinda hard on the heels. It is a little firmer than expected what with the softer EVA and absorb on the lateral side of the heel but not hard. A little more arch support would be nice but I say that about almost every shoe. I'm very pleased with them and will experiment with other NB shoes in the future.

Comments about Womens New Balance 766 Running Shoe:

I had the 765, and now the 766 and love them. The new style breaths better and my feet are seldom sweaty even after long runs. I haven't hit summer yet, but i'm hopeful that this shoe will keep on being the best shoe I've owned.

Comments about Womens New Balance 766 Running Shoe:

I wore the 765 size 10-2E for years and it was great. I tried the 766 in size 10-2E and my feet were swimming in them, so I returned them for 9-1/2-2E. The 9-1/2-2E seemed to fit but after two 5 mile runs my feet were killing me. The 766 is not for me!

Comments about Womens New Balance 766 Running Shoe:

I am sorry to see some negative reviews. This shoe is awesome. Great fit, solid support, exceptional cushioning. Larger runners who don't need major motion control will find this to be a great shoe. Much better than Asics 2090 or Nike AST. Great ride, good price. Well done New Balance.

Ran in these for the first time today and they are awesome. Light weight, great stability and fit. Order one half size up from street shoes is correct. Ample room in the toe box. I love them! I have always been a New Balance Fan......

Comments about Womens New Balance 766 Running Shoe:

Horrible....I have run in the 765 for about 3 years with an insert. I tried the 766's and they have no support and are to soft. Overall I am looking for another shoe because this one does not work. What is NB doing with their new shoe line up!!!!! It stinks at least for middle of the pack runners.....

I really like this new 766. I normally run in Nike Kantaras and put on 20-30 miles per week. These cushion well,come ina narrower size which is great and unlike others, allows me to go 1/2 size smaller than the Nikes. Great shoe!

Comments about Womens New Balance 766 Running Shoe:

I love these shoes! they are super light and have plenty of support. My knee pain and plantar Fasciitis began to clear up as soon as I started wearing these shoes. Also, they are roomy. I don't like my toes crunched together,but you do need one whole size bigger,like they reccomend.
