    Comments about Mens New Balance 801 Running Shoe:

    I tried them on in the store and inspected them carefully. Definitely low in the heel. Good cushioning and protection, not a minimalist shoe. Seemed light and comfortable. A great starter shoe for someone who wants to emphasize their forefoot more while running. For me lowering the heel lifts might make them better on steep downhills. OK but not optimal for running trails with sharp rocks.

      Comments about Mens New Balance 801 Running Shoe:

      After a double ligament knee reconstruction I needed to learn how to run again and moved toward a mid-foot strike running gate to reduce impact on the knee. Transitioning from 5-finger vibriums on a treadmill to road running in the NB shoes could not have been easier. A great pair of shoes if your a midfoot strike runner. Ultra light weight, no unnecssary 'bells and whistles' and wallet friendly.

        I use these shoes for training so far. I have run up to 20 miles in them. I really like the cushioning so far. They are firm and responsive.
        Not great for running on rough gravel on side of road. If you need to go off road.
        They are basically a lightweight chi running shoe that does its job and is very confortable. I bought another pair for when I wear these out.Heel does not get in the way at all.

          Comments about Mens New Balance 801 Running Shoe:

          Tried these on in the store, only. Have always wanted a good shoe without the 1/2 inch heel lift found on almost all shoes and with the protection found in many shoes. Seemed cushy but not too while running in the store. Feels almost like there is no heel lift. Store was low on stock and did not have some sizes?
