A great all-around shoe for wider feet.

Comments about Mens New Balance 1340v2 Running Shoe:

A little bit heavy but great support and cushioning. I used to always buy NB motion control shoes but over the years have tried others...all of which were fine (ASICS, Saucony, etc.). However, RRS has limited availability of these brands in wide width, so back to NB. Pleased to be back in a pair of NB.

    Comments about Mens New Balance 1340v2 Running Shoe:

    I have been struggling to find a good running shoe. I wear size 16 4E and have a very small selection. For years I bought New Balance because I could rely on the fit of the shoes made with the SL-2 last. I had to quit buying NB when they dropped the NB 1012 and substituted the terrible NB 1540 v1. I've tried the Asic Kayano (too narrow) and the Brooks Beast 16 (too tall with a 12 mm drop). The 1340v2 is like a breath of fresh air. I've run 3 - 5K runs and love it so far. I have narrow heels but the fit of the heel counter is perfect. The forefoot is exactly the right width for me. I have peripheral neuropathy (numb toes) and truly need the correct width. I also have psoriatic arthritis and keep my strides low to the ground. I was always wearing out the heels of my Brooks Beasts because my return stroke is low the the ground and the shoe is tall. I don't seem to have that problem with the 1340v2. It was helpful to learn that the 1340v2 uses the sl-3 last. It is great to know that can order shoes with either the sl-2 or the sl-3 last; now I have a slightly bigger selection.

    Good shoe, solid design, large toe box area.

    Comments about Mens New Balance 1340v2 Running Shoe:

    So far a solid shoe. Trying the New Balance 1340v2 out after years of Asics use because they are making their shoes too narrow. This shoe is definitely not to narrow and has a large toe box area. I do agree with some other reviews that the tongue does tend to slide to one side. Annoying but I can live with it if the shoe works out.

      Comments about Mens New Balance 1340v2 Running Shoe:

      First of all I have owned a few pairs of New Balance Shoes, but really like Asics because of the cushioning and quality of materials in the shoe. For whatever reason, it just feels like New Balance shoes use inferior materials in making the shoe. From the shoe laces, to the tongue, and the cushioning (not on Asics Nimbus or Kayano level), the quality just does not feel like it is on the level of Asics. However, New Balance shoes almost always wins with fitting my foot, as the Asics for the last few years have been smaller and narrow. Their wide is a wide, and their extra wide is extra wide. These shoes were almost too wide for me as I typically get the 4E shoe, because my foot is wider, and I wear a 16, so that is rarely an easy shoe to find. This is my first purchase into the 1340 series, and the shoes seem very sturdy, especially the midsole and heel support. The problem with these shoes is they are extremely heavy, and blocky. They don't conform to your foot very well, and just feel like two big blocks that your are carrying around while running. New Balance has always had an issue with their tongues of the shoe always sliding down towards the toe while running and I have to pull them out quite often and reposition them. I typically use these for cross training now, and don't run far in them because they are big and heavy. I would have taken them back, but I was too late for the 90 day return. I do like the 1260's much better because of their reduced weight. If you are looking for sturdy, heavy, near indestructible, oversized shoes though, this one is for you. If you want running shoes....look elsewhere.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Service was very prompt, I believe it arrived in 2 days.

      I walk/run 5 miles, twice a day, for a minimum a 5 days a week. This is the second pair of the 1340v2 I've purchased (just ordered a 3rd pair) and found the shoes to feel extremely comfortable; provide stability and is very durable. The first pair I owned, the sole began to separate and unglued. I attribute this to the long use I got out of my initial pair.

      Wow, these are the most comfortable running shoes I have owned. I wore them for two weeks straight everyday on a trip to China, did a lot of walking, a lot! Great Wall, Forbidden City everywhere!! When I got home and put on my Rockports I thought there was something wrong with them, they were so uncomfortable. My feet got so use to the comfort of these shoes everything else feels wrong. I bought a second pair I love them so much.
