    Comments about Mens New Balance 870v3 Running Shoe:

    I can wear neutral or stability but I am training for a marathon and prefer the cushioning of a stability shoe. With the 870v3 I get that in a very lightweight design. They fit great and don't take any getting used to, very natural feel.

      Comments about Mens New Balance 870v3 Running Shoe:

      I use these shoes mostly for road running and the occasional dirt road or hard pack trail. I bought them 4.5 months ago and have very, very low miles on them (2 months of no running - 10-20 miles/wk when running during the other 2.5 months).

      The shoes are extremely comfortable and seemed to encourage me to be more of a mid-foot striker.

      My complaint: The soles wore very fast and have started peeling on one foot. For this reason alone, I would not recommend. I have Mizuno's that have hundreds of miles on them in the same conditions and they never started to come apart like this. Time to try something else.

        Wore the product around the house and gym. Good all-around shoes. Love the light weight, stability and design of this shoe. because it is super light, sometimes I feel like the manufacturer skimp on product or quality. I would recommend this product.

            Comments about Mens New Balance 870v3 Running Shoe:

            I'm 6', 215 lbs, have always like the Beast, but this newest model is a disappointment. My usual size is with the Beast is 12.5D, but that size was WAY too small the this one. The toe box is very cramped and my feet started hurting after only a few miles. Tried a 12.5EE, but that was still too short, went up to a 13 and that was too long - it felt like I was sliding around in it. I'm sorry to give up the beast, but this is a waste - I'm finding another model and brand.

              This update of the 870v2 runs narrow. I ordered a D width and had to exchange for a 2E. Once they came everything was ok. This is a good update of the 870. It feels light and fast and givesgood chshoning and support.

                  I have been looking for a lightweight shoe with some stability to put in my rotation for some time. Never had much luck with NB till now, great mid foot wrap, just enough cushioning for fast runs, just a touch of stability with good transition and flexibility. Toe box very comfortable without being too wide, excellent heel fit. Having a pair of old feet (flat) it is hard to find a lightweight shoe that gives adequate support. My main shoe is the Mizuno Inspire 9 another great shoe, but these will go into rotation for my faster runs, this is best shoe I have found from NB and are worth a try.
