    Decent Shoe - medium Stability

    By Swanky G

    from Hinterlands of Chicago

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Bigfoot Chasing
        • Training shoe

        I have hard to fit feet, the 2EE is about right. Shoe has some stability, but could use a little more in the arch. I was wearing the 860(?) which you can only get at NB stores.

        Squatches exist!

        trouble with 1260V3s But 1260V4s fine

        By 10Krunr

        from Oklahoma

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Comfortable
        • Good Fit
        • plenty of toe space

        Cons

          Best Uses

            A while back I ordered NB1260V3s and had to return them because the toe box pinched my toes.
            The NB1260v4s have more room in the toe and they really feel good.
            I have a narrow, flat foot and both knees have been worked on over the years.
            The 1260v4's fit great and seem to be kind to my knees.
            As I get older I have had to cut back, but I still try to do 15-20 miles each week.

            Cons

              Best Uses

              • Gym And Off Road Running

              My husband loves this shoe. He works out at the gym and runs 3-5 miles 3 or 4 times a week. This shoe has great cushioning and support, yet is light weight. He has nothing but praise for the fit.

              Stability and Forefoot Cushioning

              By Jeff the Triathlete

              from Belmont, CA

              Verified Buyer

              Pros

              • Excellent stability
              • Improved Cushioning
              • Moderate Weight

              Cons

              • Somewhat Heavy
              • Wider Toebox

              Best Uses

              • Long distance training
              • Road running

              I train for triathlons 10 months/year no less than 3 days/week running. These shoes are an improvement over the prior model with more forefoot cushioning. The weight is not the lowest but for the amount of stability and cushioning I am happy with the trade off. The only gripe I have is the toe box seems overly wide compared to prior model.

                Best Uses

                  I'm a middle-aged runner, 220 lbs, who runs on asphalt, so it was important to protect my knees & ankles. These feel light and offer good cushioning. My feet feel the difference. Always had good experience with New Balance. Recommended!

                              Best Uses

                                The new 1260 V4 has nearly the same roominess as my 1260 V2, all of the lateral support and stability of my 1260 V3 and improved front end performance superior to both previous 1260 Vs. I think it the best Stability+ running shoe I've ever owned. Liked it from the very start and just order another pair in a different color combination.

                                Very Nice Shoe

                                Cons

                                • tongue too short

                                Best Uses

                                  This is a very nice upgrade to the V3. The shoe fits my foot very nicely. I have a foot that is more on the narrow side, if you have a foot that is a little wider I would recommend going to a wider size than the standard D. The cushioning and stability are top notch and the shoe has a very nice look to it.

                                  My only complaint about the V4 is that the tongue is too short and migrates downward due to to the way it is constructed. The V3 had a much better tongue and did not have this problem.

                                  Overall, I really like the 1260 V4 and would recommend it to others who are in the "stabilty plus" category.

                                  First time trying any NB for my running. took out of the box and did one of the most comfortable runs of my life. I was running on the wave prophecy 3 and these shoes blow them out of the water. They are far from any barefoot style of running shoe, give great support, and I can not believe how comfortable they are for long miles. Will buy again.

                                        Wider and more comfortable than the v3, the shoes were great out of the box. Forward sole lacks the flexibility of the v3, which may be of concern. Also seems to be made from a simpler more inexpensive process and seems to lack the craftsmanship of the v3.
                                        That being said i bought 3 more pair of the soon to be discontinued v3's.
