I have been running steadily for about five years. During those years I ran in toning shoes, first MBT's and then Runtones. The more I increased mileage, the more pain I had in my IT bands. For the past three months I have done about 30-35 miles a week, but I have been in agony. I decided it might be my shoes, so I went to a local store that analyzes runners' gaits and recommends shoes. They fitted me in New Balance 1080s (yesterday) Today I did a 10.5 mile run just to try them out and all I can say is AMAZING!! My hips and IT bands are not throbbing; I can actually sit down without pain; there is some soreness, but it's going to take a while for the old damage to heal. Today I am on this website to order a second pair because I want to alternate shoes so they don't get smelly (I sweat a lot).
PLEASE do not become a mileage runner in toning shoes! Get something appropriate - the New Balance 1080s are beyond wonderful.
If it helps I am 5'7", weigh 130 lbs, wear size 11 narrow in normal shoes, but 12B in running shoes.

Almost as good as the 1064
I purchased the New Balance 1064 in 8.5D a few months ago. My Mom is hard to fit, and the 1064 was perfect for her! So, I got back on the website to get another pair and they were gone, replaced by the 1080. The 1080 shoe has a good feel, lightweight (for a cushioned shoe) and flexible without feeling sloppy. I wish it had the same level of arch support and cushioning as the 1064, but it does not. I have only put a few miles on the shoes, but I think I will be happy with them for some time. New Balance continues to make shoes for people like me who need lots of room in the toe box!! Thanks!!
I was nervous about this update but I love it! New Balance did a great job. The shoe fits even better and looks much sleeker. Very nicely done! My second time in the shoe was a 10 miler and no problems, issues, or blisters.
Enjoying the run
Ran my first half marathon in them and did great. Love that they are lightweight and breathable.
Decent update to the 1064
I have been runnning in this shoe for about 3 weeks and its a decent replacement shoe for the endangered 1064. Man, i miss that shoe. This 1080 is a little snug in the instep and my right foot starts to go numb a couple miles into the run. I am hoping with a little more break-in time it will subside. The toe box is also a little narrower than the 1064.
Feet don't hurt anymore!
Use for training runs. Great for 6 miles, then feels like needs more forefoot cushioning, especially left foot.Feels supportive, not heavy or tight. Feet feel good when finish run. Have already ordered second pair.
