    By WarriorSage

    Comments about Mens New Balance 760 Running Shoe:

    After years of working out and training in an cross trainer I decided it was time to get back into running a little. Now I'm a big guy and I have low arches, however I do not pronate that much. Everybody, but the NB folks told me to go with the Beast or the NB 1011 or the Asics 2140/50. Good god?! Those things were like cement! This shoe feels like it's a part of my foot. For the first time in years I can run without pain in my shins and hips. I tried this along with the NB 850 and for me this shoe just fit my foot the right way. The 850 seems to feel like it was pushing the inside of my heel just a bit too much for my foot. Both shoes are very comfortable. I would probably say that the 760 could use just a tiny bit more cushioning, but if I could I would give it 4 1/2 stars just because of that small thing. With the return policy and the great pricing on RRS you cannot go wrong ordering these and take them out for a test run . I think you'll be very pleased.

    I've been using the 2140's and was given a pair of the 760's to test, I was very surprised! It's a great feeling shoe! Very stable, good cushioning, it has a very comfortable fit. Feels a tad heavier the the 2140's but not enough to make a difference.

    they are light and comfortable and breathe well. They have a wide/roomy toe box and good cushion. I like the heel support and stability. Overall, I'm impressed and they rate as good as the air structure triax.

    Alot of shoe for the money - substantial midsole, no real complaints.
    I have a C width -- NB tends to run wide and this follows suit. For me it accommodates an orthotic and lift well.

    Comments about Mens New Balance 760 Running Shoe:

    Pleasantly surprised. I had been running in Asics 2140s which i loved but was looking elsewhere for a new shoe due to poor reviews of 2150. Was hesitant to pick these up due to poor experiences was NB Basketball shoes back in the 80's but really like this shoe. Lots of support and very light. Tremendous buy for the money.

    Comments about Mens New Balance 760 Running Shoe:

    I jumped the gun with my earlier review, sorry! The 760 fits well but it is wearing out quickly and losing support just like the 769 did. These shoes just aren't built as well as the 768 and previous models of 760 series were. As a wearer of the New Balance 760 series for 7 years I am disappointed to have to give up on this series and maybe New Balance.

    have used several models in the 760 series and these have very poor heel wear. They are worn through at less than 200 miles.

    Otherwise a very good shoe.

      Comments about Mens New Balance 760 Running Shoe:

      I have been a faithful consumer of the 760 line since the 763 several years ago. I still have a pair of 767 that are holding up at over 600 miles! However, I was very disappointed with the 769. They lost support by 250 miles whereas I usually got 450+ miles of each pair. The 769 just felt cheap. New Balance is back on track with the 760, which seems to be similar to the 767 and 768.

        I'm a long time NB customer and these are the third pair of NB760's I have owed. Each one of them have given me the same great ride. It's a shame they're being discontinued. I hope the new model wears just as well.

              While I liked the forefoot out-sole on the previous version of this shoe, the stability is great; the cushioning is wonderful for someone who battles metatarsalgia, and the extra width of the 2e is a great bonus. Solid performance all-around, whether running on trails, the road or a mix of the two.

                  Always go with New Balance for my running shoes. They fit perfectly and give me good support in the right areas. Very comfortable and light weight to wear. I am a recreational runner but I still want my running shoes to do everything right and that's what New Balance shoes always do. I have tried almost every other brand, but I always come back to New Balance and wonder why I even tried something else.

                        This shoe is a great value. I run quite a few miles so I need new ones every two or three months. I buy these two at a time and love them.The fit, feel and performance is as good as the $120 shoes I previously wore.

                          I wear them when walking and with my casual dress. I have had several comments on how attractive they look.

                            A month with these shoes and so far so good. I'm 6'2" 215lb and need a stability shoe. Run on treadmill and road about 10-12 miles a week. For the light mileage this shoe has been great. No issues.

                              I have wide feet and it is difficult to find shoes that work for me. New Balance offers wide shoes in virtually all of their models. The new 760, in a 2E width, works very well for me. They are comfortable, yet provide the support I need. I highly recommend these for any runner with wide feet and a neutral gait.

                              Wear these to run and at work all day. Very comfortable, light weight. I was pleasantly surprised at the comfort and fit based on other pairs of NBs that I have had. They feel great and I would put them against other brands that I have.

                              Pleasantly surprised. I had been running in Asics 2140s which i loved but was looking elsewhere for a new shoe due to poor reviews of 2150. Was hesitant to pick these up due to poor experiences was NB Basketball shoes back in the 80's but really like this shoe. Lots of support and very light. Tremendous buy for the money.

                              After years of working out and training in an cross trainer I decided it was time to get back into running a little. Now I'm a big guy and I have low arches, however I do not pronate that much. Everybody, but the NB folks told me to go with the Beast or the NB 1011 or the Asics 2140/50. Good god?! Those things were like cement! This shoe feels like it's a part of my foot. For the first time in years I can run without pain in my shins and hips. I tried this along with the NB 850 and for me this shoe just fit my foot the right way. The 850 seems to feel like it was pushing the inside of my heel just a bit too much for my foot. Both shoes are very comfortable. I would probably say that the 760 could use just a tiny bit more cushioning, but if I could I would give it 4 1/2 stars just because of that small thing. With the return policy and the great pricing on RRS you cannot go wrong ordering these and take them out for a test run . I think you'll be very pleased.

                              Alot of shoe for the money - substantial midsole, no real complaints. I have a C width -- NB tends to run wide and this follows suit. For me it accommodates an orthotic and lift well.

                              they are light and comfortable and breathe well. They have a wide/roomy toe box and good cushion. I like the heel support and stability. Overall, I'm impressed and they rate as good as the air structure triax.

                              I've been using the 2140's and was given a pair of the 760's to test, I was very surprised! It's a great feeling shoe! Very stable, good cushioning, it has a very comfortable fit. Feels a tad heavier the the 2140's but not enough to make a difference.
