    Comments about Mens New Balance M 580 Classic Running Shoe:

    The M580 is a real workhorse of a shoe. It is extremely stable, relatively flexible, and firmly cushioned. All of this comes at the cost of the 580 being on the heavy side. A racing flat it isn't. But unless your an ultra fast pro or sub-elite, that shouldn't really matter. I use it as one of 3 pairs in my current rotation, and they fit in very nicely. This shoe runs a little big. I wear a size 10D with a thumbnail's width at the end in all my running shoes except for the 580, which I went down to a 9.5D. If you need/want an ultra stable, heavy duty motion control shoe that can take it and weight is not an issue, the M580 is definitely worth a look.

          Hey guys,

          I just ordered this shoe after running with these for years back in the day...very exciting to have this shoe back on the market. But, I wear 13 2E NB shoes in every shoe I've ever ordered, and this 580 is too big, so I'm returning it for a 12 hoping it's not too short. Sorry, haven't run in them yet, but will post more after I get my second set of 12 2E's instead of the 13 2E's I ordered.

              use for long days at conventions and on concrete floors, 8 to 10 hours per day then going out at night dining etc. Fabulous work out shoe too, cushion and stability for easy on the feet workouts. Comfortable, stylish and of course the classics are called that for a reason

                I'm a competitive runner and regularly compete in marathons, half marathons, and ultras. I always rotate 3 pairs of running shoes each run depending on what I'm doing. The M580 fits nicely into my rotation. It's an old school, classic running shoe that's comfortable and very durable. It's definitely on the heavier side, but you unless you're a professional runner, that won't matter. Highly recommended!

                    Comments about Mens New Balance M 580 Classic Running Shoe:

                    Because the mid sole is thicker than most other running shoes, I wear NB 580 in the winter to give me more cushioning against the cold and the gravelly road surface.

                    Unfortunately, the outer heel of my shoe receives most of my running impact, thus this area wears thin quickly. So I must purchase a new shoe earlier than expected. Nonetheless, I will continue to buy it. The price is great as well.

                    The 580 remains a popular choice in the Urban/suburban style market. It's a shame NB has moved away from that market and is ignoring their needs.

                          I've been running for over 30 years and have chalked up almost 50,000 miles. This shoe is a dependable shoe for the larger runner. I'm 5'10" tall and weigh in at a delightful 230 pounds so I know what I'm talking about. If you want a comfortable cruise this si a great shoe for the price.

                          I have been wearing them for many years. Usually buy 2 pairs per year for casual wear and exercise walking. I use my older pairs for mowing grass, painting. I wear one or another pair nearly all the time. I like the style, and appreciate that I can get them in wider sizes and still have good support and stability for a heavier person like me. My only gripe is they can be slippery on greasy or wet tile floors or very smooth wet concrete.

                            A wonderful run out of the box shoe, but after 100 miles the blown rubber soles start showing ware. At 125 miles the black rubber on outside heal area wares all the way down to the white layer under and within another 50-100 down to the blue plastic area.

                                Not very attractive, however they work well for a big guy who over pronates.

                                The quality of the construction of this model is poor. The outsole of both shoes came off at the back. Got so bad it was like I was walking in flip flops.

                                  New Balance stopped making the Classic Running 851 so the 580 was the closest available. This shoe is very good for around use and it is reasonably priced.

                                      The New Balance M580 is a great running shoe. I remember first using it back in 1995, and I decided to get it again. I'm a competitive runner and regularly run marathons and ultras, and the 580 fits into my rotation nicely. The shoe is a bit heavy and is at the opposite end of the spectrum from a racing flat, but unless you're an elite marathoner, that shouldn't matter. The shoe seems to run a tad big, I normally wear a size 10D in all my running shoes with a thumbnail's width at the end, and this is the only shoe I have to go down to a 9.5 in, so I would keep that in mind. Happy running!

                                                  I have run 3 marathons in these shoes. I change them out every 6 months. I've been sold on this shoe for 15 years. I'm over 50 and have never had injury issues with this shoe. It's great for those of us who carry more weight. I'm 200 pounds and this shoe offers tremendous support.

                                                  I have run 4 marathons in them and weight over 225+ pounds. Not the most stylsh but they kept me injury free. They had been my shoe for 10 years. I tried other shoes. I hope they bring them back.

                                                  The most comfortable running shoe I've ever found. I hope that they are brought back again

                                                  This was the best shoe I ever owned and I've used the M580 since they came out w/no injuries. I'm "SO" sorry that they discontinued them. I've tried literally dozens of shoes and nothing is better for the heavy runner... I'm bummed I can't get them anymore.

                                                  This is a great running shoe, second to none. Alot of people misrepresent the facts here in their reviews, for a whole host's of reasons. If you're searching for that once in a life time love affair the 580 is a perfect fit. Don't get me wrong, in the 1980's New Balance made alot of great running shoes. It appears the only warehoused items left over from the 80's were the NB580. Runner's World magazines from the 1980's usually sell on eBay at better prices then current additions do. Since the invention of trails, roads have become off limits with danagerous drivers popping up all over. Road running shoes have also become less in demand. Lately trails have become more dangerous, and tread mills are taking off with the likes of Vision Quest's over sized LCD panels, double sided waxed running boards, and industrail strenght 400 pound tread mill frames. This is the perfect shoe for someone suffering from swollen ankles and feet from a bad heart.

                                                  OK ?I bought my first pair of 580s when i was in high school.Im on my 3rd pair of 580s, they have been around and stood the test of time. And i love mine. yes the 587, is far more supportive and a better running shoe, but my 580s have moved from being my running shoes, to being my all around sneakers But for that, they are the best!,they are light, they are soft, cushioned and supportive. my feet stay cooler in the 580s than the 587s by far.Im a big guy, my 580s support me, and my weight, and the cushioning holds up. In summer, these stay cool and are soft enough that i can walk or run without socks on, and my feet still feel great. oh yea, and they look cool too, no glitsy flash, just a good American made pair of running sneakers. I will be wearing them for the next 20 years

                                                  I think this shoe is great for walking. As a flat-footed runner who needs a motion control shoe, it has been a severe disappointment. The last is not straight, so pronation is poorly managed at best. The shoe is relatively hard and the ride is horrid. My feet feel like they are slapping down. They are being retired to walking duty after less than 100 miles.

                                                  I ran in these all summer. Good sturdy shoe, but for heavier runners than I, which makes them a little too hard for my 140lbs. Moved to 890's....

                                                  Extra wide width (4E) and stability when walking/light trekking--my husband rates these his best all-round shoes

                                                  I have used 580s for several years now. Not bad, based on the fact that I have cut down on my running and done more work the last year on elyptical trainers with the 580s. I formerly used the 998s for many miles and years and for a jogger believe they are better.

                                                  These are, without a doubt, the worst running shoes I have purchased in almost thirty years of running. They are like strapping two boards on your feet - they provide less cushioning and support than my first pair of Brooks back in the late seventies. Do yourself a favor and spend more money to buy a decent shoe and avoid injury. I am buying another pair of Asics Kayanos - my most recent shoe buy prior to trying out the NBs.

                                                  Good shoe. I've had a pair for over a year and they hold up pretty well. Not the best for running though. Definitly not much cushioning and they are really too bulky and heavy. If you are a serious runner, definitly look for a better shoe.
