        Comments about Mens New Balance 1260v3 Running Shoe:

        My gold standard was ASIC Kayanos. When NB1260 v3 came out, I gave it a try (was best upgrade, 2013). I was a bit put off by its appearance -- it has a huge tongue and its sole looks like suckers from an octopus. But it worked well. I was also wearing Kayano 19 and I thought the two were close enough -- the price delta was $20ish. When I acquired Kayano 20, NB 1260 v3 beat it in terms of mid/front foot cushion and overall feeling so I got myself another pair (5th pair in a year). I am 160 lb and run 25-30 miles/week @8-9 min pace. I use treadmill and high school rubber track.

            I have a wide foot and it is often hard if not impossible to find a running shoe that fits as well as this one. I have been using trail shoes for awhile since I do enjoy trail running (NB 876 trail) so the 1260 instantly felt lighter and more impact resistant. I am also a bigger guy 6' 225 and these seemed to be the perfect shoe for me. I have only had them a few days so I cannot say how they will last but I will definitely buy another pair soon if they hold up well.

                    The shoe fit very well in narrow, the only draw back is that I prefer a fairly well cushioned shoe particularly since my long run has asphalt and concrete running over bridges. I agree with another reviewer, I put in a cushioned insole and that helped. Might better on asphalt and trail.

                      This is the most comfortable running shoe, right out of the box that I've ever purchased. I'm a "heavy runner" (6'0" 198lbs)and so far (about 25 miles in the first 1 1/2 weeks) they have provided good cushioning and support and the lightweight is great. I have narrow feet and the "D" width is perfect for me. I have been running in Asics Gel Kayano's for the past few years but these shoes have become my new favorite.

                      I'm a pretty heavy runner, (6'1, 225 lbs), so anything without a ton of cushion I'll tear through pretty quick. After getting fitted for Stability Plus grade shoes, I chose these because I liked the cushion in the mid and forefoot- the other stability shoes seem to be for heel strikers. These are the first shoes I've worn where I've been pain-free in my knees next day, which is a miracle.

                      These are heavy shoes- noticeably so, and a little clunky. But the heavy duty cushion is worth the trade off. Lasted about 8 months for me. I'd recommend them for heavier runners.

                        I was looking for a sneaker that was comfortable and supported my feet as I run. They are very breathable and helps reduce fatigue. Great for the average runner on pavement/road.

                        Cons: Many of my sneakers are true to size. i think these are a half size too small.

                        Love them otherwise!

                          Great -- very supportive And comfortable ride. I have historically used a heavier motion control shoe due to heavy pronation but thought I would give this a try. Great comfort and stability without the rock hard stiffness of a huge instep panel that was the case with most motion controls shoes from Asics, Brooks, etc. very pleased

                              Shoe offers great support and feels lighter than described as well. Feet feel like they can really breath running during peak heat hours of the day and materials seem durable. I haven't had them very long (2 weeks), but I trust NB and think they will be great until the end.

                                This shoe is great and still going strong after 300 miles and counting. I liked the 1260v2 and love the v3. These are better than ASICS GEL-Kinsei 5s in most respects and $50 cheaper on average as I alternate shoes every day. I run over 50 miles/week, have PF in the left foot, occassional tendonitis in right knee and these help keep me going.

                                Historically I would buy New Balance shoes a half size smaller and get a wider width, but this model seemed more in line with other shoes I have gotten from Asics or Nike. I hope NB doesnt mess it up or discontinue it.

                                    I have never worn such a light weight shoe and I am use to more padding. The main problem is that it came in a 2E when historically I have been wearing a 4E which allows for my orthotic

                                      This is the first pair of new balance running shoes I've ever owned. I run between 20 and 25 miles a week, more if I'm training for 1/2 or full marathons. I enjoy running 15K's and 1/2 Marathons especially. I'm 6 ft - 1 inches tall and weigh 165 lbs. I have a narrow foot with a low arch. The 1260 is the best fitting and functional shoe I've owned in all my years of running, 38 years to be exact. I've got two pair now and I'm anxiously awaiting a third pair I just ordered.

                                        I loved the Brooks Trance, but wasn't crazy about the Trance 12. This shoe is lighter and has more cushion than the Trance 12. I highly recommend this shoe.

                                            I no longer run due to bad knees but walk at a fast pace on pavement and the treadmill. I've worn 1260's for several years and I think these are the best that NB has ever put out. Highly recommend.

                                            Awesome pair of running shoes!.. for training.

                                            Love these shoes.
                                            Performs well. True to size.
                                            Cushioning is great.
                                            Pronation control on the dime.
                                            Runs smooth on pavement.
                                            Long runs on these shoes shouldn't be a problem.

                                            However, at 10.7 ounces - its heavy. Compared to a 8.7 performance stability running shoes. That's why its good for training. It makes you feel faster when running on lighter shoes.

                                            Overall, this is a great pair I'd use for short and especially long runs without feeling any pains in the first crucial 3 miles.

                                              I am 6ft 4 in 215#. I've been running for 30 years most of them in New Balance. I was very sad to see the 990 discontinued. The 993 and 998 are ok but never quite fit my feet (12EE). The 1260v3 was SOOO comfy when I tried them on in the RRS store on Elkridge, MD. They only had the red one which after years of grey NBs was a bit much for me. The salespeople looked online and found the white/light blue ones. I got them a few days later (with the VIP appreciation Sale discount!) and ran five miles in them this morning. I am very pleased and so are my feet! P.S. - If you get more than one pair of shoes a year, go VIP. The discounts pay for the membership quickly and the service is great.

                                                I bought the Asics Kayano 20s in a 12.5 wide. Ran a couple days, they were nice shoes but I just didn't feel that "cushy" feeling I was expecting. I ordered the 1260v3 to see if they were better, and they were MUCH more compfotable and felt like they had much more cushion. They don't have 12.5s so i went with 13, which are fine, but a tad big.

                                                  I purchased these shoes at the recommendation of my Pedorthist to help control over-pronation. While I have run in them only a few times, so far I have found these shoes to be comfortable and they do seem to lessen the pain from running.

                                                  I can always count on the New Balance Line and I've been following this line since it was the 1226.

                                                    I've worn the NB 1200 series for YEARS!!! I skipped from the 1260 to the 1260v3 (missed the v2). Somehow, the toe box got narrower in this latest shoe vs the 1260. Don't know if it changed for 1260 to v2, or v2 to v3. In any case, had to return my normal size and go up one. RRS said NB did the same to 1080 recently and plans to revise fit in next version, but did not know if 1260 would change too. Be wary or sizing. I went up one size, seemed to solve problem. Overall, very comfy shoe!!!
