I have worn NB shoes for years but this is one of the best so far.
I have a slightly wide forefoot and am a mild overpronator. I have been running since 1975 and used to do half-marathons; current milage is pretty low, but I still need the right shoe for injury prevention and comfort. Previous versions of the NB1260 were a little skimpy for me and not well-cushioned, so I stuck with my older Saucony Hurricanes. If the (now defunct) final version of the Brooks Trance had been available in widths, that shoe would have been perfect, but alas, the 6.5 was too snug in the toe box and the 7 was a little long. Gel Kayano 20, my current main running shoe, is a very good shoe and the 6.5 W fits me perfectly, but I prefer a slightly more cushioned feel than that shoe provides. This NB 1260v4 has the slightly more cushioned feel that I like and the toe box in the 6.5 wide width is perfect, but my heel slips in this shoe. I have tried multiple patterns of lacing to try and minimize this effect because I want to love these shoes. Also, the shoe seems to lack lateral stability. I wouldn't dare to seriously run in them, not with my 60-year old knees; cannot risk injury. Maybe this shoe should be moved into the cushioned category, not stability. The 1260 v4 would be fine for basic walks with our big dog and for dog play, but the heel-slippage is a problem. Many women need wide toe boxes and narrow heels. Sometimes the manufacturers understand this and sometimes they don't; this time NB did not. For someone whom this shoe fits, it is a great shoe.
Much better than the last version. I have been using this shoe for years and was hoping they would come back with the shoe i have grown to love and NB got it right again. great cushion and comfort. i run 7 days a week and the V4 feels so much better on my feet than the last one. Light enough, yet not flimsy. great arch support. I JUST LOVE THIS SHOE!!
