I have worn New Balance running shoes for the last 15 years....these are the abolute WORST shoes EVER! I so wish I could have returned them. They gave me a huge blister on my right arch. I kept trying to wear them....I still hate them & can't wait to get another pair. Please, oh, Please....bring back the 1223's. They were the very best, and it looks like every other woman runner out there agrees with me. New Balance should do a recall for all their devoted running friends & replace these with a new pair!!

This shoe was recommended to me for my long distance runs, since I tend to get blisters on my big toes. I went for a 10 mile run and wasn't able to finish it due to the blisters I ended up with on my arches, but they didn't give me any blisters on my toes. I do not recommend this shoe at all. Very disappointed.

This shoe is not as good as its predecessor, the 1223. The 1223 fit like a glove, and I went without any foot pain until the shoe broke down. I wore my 1224s over the weekend and worked outside, and my feet were screaming. Where can I buy a pair of 1223s?

I have to disagree. I think these shoes are the most comfortable model yet. I have run over 600 km since January 1/09 in my first pair with no pain in my feet or legs. These are some amazing shoes and I HIGHLY recommend them.

The the cushioning is exceptional. However, that sadly is offset by an uncomfortable upper and inadequate arch support. The plastic arch lock and welded overlays are extremely irritating, especially for anyone with bunions and others who need a lot of toebox depth. This shoe is recommended for bunions, yet even in a D width the arch lock and overlays seriously impinge and irritate. The arch support is seriously lacking. The shoe also runs very long. Bottom line: I had high hopes for this shoe, and it sadly just isn't working out for me...

Not as comfortable as the 1223, I do not like the toe box and the arch is very uncomfortable. Fit is larger than any of the other New Balance that I have purchased. Would not buy another pair. Where are the 1223's

Horrible. Not like 1223 which I loved. Slightly tight in forfoot, and seemed to throw my whole right leg off, very dissapointed.

This shoe has better forefoot cushion than it's predecessors, but it gives me blisters inside both heels. It must have a narrower heel cup. I like it, but probably would go up one width if I were to order it again.

This shoe is horrible! I have worn 1220 series for years with no problems.I gave the 1224 the good old college try, but I have gotten blisters and aggravation with every run. I am going out to buy new shoes today!

I really wanted to like these shoes. I have tried several times to run in them and every time it is a painful experience. My shins and heals hurt so bad. I am very disappointed. The only thing they have going for them is they are cute.

I have been a fan of these shoes since the 1222. The 1223 was almost as good so I figured I couldn't go wrong with ordering the 1224. After 2 wears, my heels and metatarsals felt bruised. They are much stiffer and the claim of "cloud-like cushioning" did not hold true. I have a morton's neuroma and this edition was not protective of my problem as it had been in the past. Everyone's having to cut costs, and unfortunately New Balance must be experiencing the same with using less quality materials.

I have been a runner for over 20+ years and NB has always fit my foot. I am recovering from posterior tendonitis and this shoe has kept me out of a cast and on the road to complete a marathon. I love this shoe.

I have run in New Balance for 26 years. Every pair I have ever gotten has been better than the one before...except for this shoe. I want the 1223 back! It was very comfortable and I loved them from the moment I tied the laces. The 1224 didn't feel comfortable right from the start. They are too stiff and the toe box seems smaller as my toes have gotten blisters, which has never happened to me before. SO, order more of the 1223's in 6.5 B please!

After having the 1223 I was looking forward to the 1224. However after my first run the tongue rubbed the top of my foot so bad I was bruised for a few days. I wouldn't recommend this shoe.

I loved the 1223!! Walked the 3 day, alternating the 1223 and 1224. The 1223 was great ... day two with the 1224 got blisters on my inner heel ... never happened with the 1223. Hope the new version is back to the 1223!!!

Poor quality - I bought my first pair and the lacing system broke within a week. That pair was replaced and sure enuf the second pair broke exactly as the first.

I agree with Jennifer. These are the worst shoes! You feel like a platypus running in them. If I still had the box, they would be going back, too!

These shoes felt like I was running in wooden clogs. Plus, I got a nice big blister on my inner heel. Tried them for three runs and sent them back.

I run 6-8 miles a day and have been plagued with chronic quad soreness for the past year. I had been running in Saucony, then Nike, the pain continued. After 2 runs in the 1224 the pain is gone. I love these shoes.

I'm a female with a larger frame and weigh over 150. I have regular to flat arches. These shoes give the support I need in all areas! I was having chronic calf pains and chronic shin splits previously. After running in these shoes for one week, I feel as though those pains are now a part of the past due to the large amount of support and cushion they provide! Yeah for NBs!!! p.s. I usually wear a size 11, and I wear these in a size 12... because the toe box is more squared off in NBs you may find yourself going for a 1/2 size to full size larger.

Been thru at least 15 prs of shoes looking for something that didn't give me knee pain from the heel strike - and finally found these! I also have a bunion and have not had any problems so far - have run an 8.5 and 6.5 miler so far as well as a few shorts. Very comfortable.

Loved the 1223; hate the 1224. Not good for anyone with bunyons or heavy heal strike. NB logo strip hits right at the bunyon point (1223 had breathable mesh at that point). Cut outs in the heal and forefoot causes shoe to compress and breakdown quicker than 1223. (If you like that technology, go for the Mizuno Wave Nirvana 4). Frankly, NB really screwed up with this shoe design. I wish they would bring back the 1223.

Not the same shoe as the 1223. They are longer in the toe box. I am wearing a 1/2 size smaller than my 1223
