    Run 3-4 times per week for conditioning. Roughly 15 miles total. Mostly on pavement. Am an older runner.
    I prefer cushioned, comfortable shoes. I bought a 2nd pair within 1.5 months. Will buy more in the future.

    Comments about Mens New Balance 870v3 Running Shoe:

    I bought these after the V2 was discontinued.The fit is the same and though the specs of the V2 and V3 are similar, this shoe feels a little lighter.I weigh about 195 lbs. and I am 5-11.I run about 25 - 30 miles per week and run mostly 10k or half-marathons. I find these especially good on longer runs.I rotate 3 pairs with the third pair only for racing, so durability has not been a problem. The fit is 1 size up from my normal regular shoe and a 1/2 up from my normal running shoes. The widths are accurate to sizing. I have a normal width. Be sure to purchase the stretchy shoe laces as the shoe laces that come with the shoe are tight if you like to run in a looser feeling shoe across your forefoot.

      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 want to love these shoes, but....I have been running in Mizuno Inspire 3-9 and wanted to change things up. For a stability shoe these bad boys are light and fast. The 8mm drop takes a bit to get used to. First run 7 miles and legs were energized the entire time. The con is NB shoes are always to narrow. I got the EE, but I still felt me feet being pinched in too much. Going to swap them for 4e and see if that works.

        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.

              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.

                    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.
