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.

Comments about Mens New Balance 1340v2 Running Shoe:

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.

Comments about Mens New Balance 1340v2 Running Shoe:

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.

Good shoe, holds up well.

By John

Comments about Mens New Balance 1340v2 Running Shoe:

The shoe is comfortable for my running and doesn't need to be broken in (at least not for me). My one complaint with this shoe is in the tread design - it is always picking up 1/2-3/4" gravel in the cutout just in front of the heal and is not good at "self cleaning", so I have to stop sometimes and pull the gravel out of the tread. If you only ever wear this shoe on clean paths, then it probably wouldn't be an issue.

    Comments about Mens New Balance 1340v2 Running Shoe:

    This is the most perfect shoe that I have ever owned. I rarely run any but, for walking around daily,it could not be more perfect. It is so soft and comfortable that you can hardly tell that you are wearing shoes.
    It makes walking so comfortable that it seems to actually generate energy in your entire body. It supports the weight of your body in a way that makes you feel as though you weigh practically weigh nothing at all.
    Not only would I reccomend this shoe to anyone looking for the perfect shoes, but I would also recommend it to God if he ever decides he wants a perfect pair of shoes.

      I'm 6'4" and 220 and coming off a foot injury. I needed a stability/control shoe with lots of padding. This has been a great shoe. I was worried at first but so far no pain, but I haven't pushed it yet.

      I have been long term NB user, and I need motion control. This has been the best "out of the box" shoe I've had the pleasure to use. I ordered it two days ago, arrived yesterday and I used it, and ordering my 2nd pair today. Great shoes for heavier runners (200#) with distances of 20-25 mi per week.
