      Comments about Womens New Balance 890v4 Running Shoe:

      The only negative I have is the sizing. I wear a sz 8 regular shoe and always wear a 8.5 in my running shoe. When the website recommends 1/2 size up, I never know if that is recommended from your regular shoe size? I ordered 8.5 and they were very small. I sent back and ordered a 9. They were still snug, but I decided to keep. I would probably go with a 9.5 if I had to do it over again.

      The shoe itself is wonderful. I run in minimal type shoes, but needed more cushion for roads. It is super flexible in the fore and mid-foot, allowing me to still have a natural stride. There is plenty of cushion in the heel, but does not get in the way like bulkier shoes. These are light weight, but still a high mileage workhorse. I also noticed that I am running 20-30 sec faster per mile with these shoes. It has been years since I've tried New Balance, they used to be heavy and stiff. I am very pleased with these shoes.

        Comments about Womens New Balance 890v4 Running Shoe:

        This is a good solid shoe that is very lightweight, yet is surprisingly stable. The cushioning is distributed well, although I personally prefer more in the forefoot. The tongue is way overstuffed although it didn't bother me. The biggest negative was the very shallow toe box, which tended to beat my toes up too much. If you don't mind a shallow toe box and want something light, but with decent cushion, this is a good shoe to consider. The flexibility was very good as well.

          I run about five times a week, averaging 5-7 miles each run. I used to wear Nike, but the last three sneakers I bought for running have been New Balance and I am hooked.

          Order these shoes as they suggest, a half size up. Overall they are super comfortable and although they're lightweight, they provide great support.

          Would highly recommend!

                This is a perfect shoe to accommodate my high arches. It provides plenty of flexibility for neutral runners. The v4 is a little wider at the front of the foot than the v3, thus more comfortable for most feet, including mine. Great cushioning! Be sure to try this shoe 1/2 size larger than most others.

                    I've been through several pairs of 890 v2 & v3. This is a completely different fit; they should have renamed the shoe. Why did they mess with the performance fit of the first three versions? This is a crinkly, noisy mess of a shoe. Gone is the slipper feel! Gone is the full ground contact. If the first 3 versions fit you, don't waste your time. This is another sloppy shoe for fat feet. Lets hope the nb1400 isn't a disaster too. I'm so mad at you, New Balance!

                      Bought these the other day and have run in them twice. I am in love with them. I used to run in "barefoot" type shoes but had to switch to something with more cushioning. Love these because they are just as light as my "barefoot" type shoes but cushion the impact!
