Once I found these shoes (stepping down from heavier NB neutral shoes), I haven't looked back. I've had several pairs - yup, if you run any amount of distance/miles, these are gonna wear out much sooner than the standard 300-500 miles (which I think is a way too long time to keep any shoes, anyway) - and I'll keep wearing them as long as they're still made. I've had tendonitis, knee, back, and hip trouble (middle age, desk job, sometimes run on bad roads), and these shoes help me manage or even ward off those and other troubles. I love doing longer runs (8-16M) on these, and tempos, and they're great for longer races (beyond 10K) as well. BTW, they're way cheaper than heavier shoes that last longer, so the cost of replacing these more often evens out.
This is an outstanding shoe! It's lightweight, comfortable, fast, and fits on my foot like a glove. The longest I've taken this shoe is 8 miles and I felt absolutely fine post-run. I had been battling plantar fasciitis for well over a year and after months of running exclusively in this shoe, it's gone! Because of its low profile, I really have a better feel of the road, which means that my feet have to work a bit harder, rather than relying on the shoe's mechanics to push off. It's a fine trail runner, but not good for technical trails because the tread or more for the road. Also, I like the bright colors. Excellent shoe! Great job, New Balance!
Favorite Shoes in the world
I run 40+ miles a week and was a collegiate athlete. I am a shoe snob! The moment I put these shoes on I fell in love with them. I get excited about running just by putting these shoes on! They fit like a glove and are so lightweight and responsive! I LOVE these shoes. I like to run trails and they do a decent job on them, but because they are so lightweight they wore out fairly quick which is a huge bummer but because I love them so much, they're worth it. I've had these shoes for 5 months now (way past the 400-500 mileage limit) and I still love them. Longest run I did was 12 miles and I loved them the whole time.

I absolutely love this shoe. I've had it for about 7 months now and my longest run it is a 10k. I feel like I could do a half marathon in them easily though. After the 10k my feet still felt so comfortable. The RevLite foam provides incredible cushioning for such a light shoe. I don't wear these for every run, they are a racing flat and use them as racing flats. A shoe this light will obviously wear out quickly if you run in it all the time, plus you won't enjoy the benefits of racing in such a light shoe. It is my favorite go to racing flat and I have worn a number of different brands.

Transitioning from high cushioned shoes....
I have worn ASICS for 10 years, and started walking in them 2 years ago. Started running on treadmill in ASICS about 6 months ago.3 months ago, I got plantar fasciitis and it has been terrible. My friend suggested a more minimalist shoe than the ASICS Kayano and the Brooks Ghost I had been wearing. So I saw a review on these shoes that someone got relief from PF with these shoes. So I bought them. They seem great so far - huge difference from other shoes I have. I have cut back my distance and am still unable to run, but the 2.5 - 3 miles per day have been much more tolerable with these shoes. I have only had them for 2 weeks. But all is well for now, and I am hoping to buy a few more pair.
Great replacement for Brooks
I'm a marathoner/half marathoner who is very busy and runs an inconsistent amount of weekly miles. I really liked the Brooks Pure Flo and Pure Cadence. Both pair I had wore out about the same time. I tried the Pure Cadence 2 and they just did not work out, so I returned them. I did some research and found out he Brooks fans who did not like the changes in their new shoe who switched to the NB 1400. I tried them and I love them! I just ran a half marathon in them and my legs feel great. I do feel that even though I buy up a half size for my running shoes, these still seem a little small.

Ready to Run at Any Given Moment
I was initially drawn to this shoe for the navy-neon yellow-fluorescent rainbow combination. I usually go towards a more middle of the road type of shoe with more cushion for longer miles. I love how lightweight this shoe is. I wear it to the gym and am able to go from lifting to speed work to errands around town afterward. If you're considering building up from a zero shoe or transitioning down from a traditional drop, give this one a try. This is my happy shoe!

Most comfortable running shoe ever!
I have only worn them once and they feel like I have already broken them in. I LOVE HOW THEY FEEL. I also love how I can feel fresh air traveling thru the mesh. I run about 12 miles a week, so I hope they last me longer than 2 months. My feets never felt sore and I didn't have any numbness that I get from other brands. That is what a different comment posted put about the life of the shoe.

Cute shoes, too narrow
I bought these to wear to work since I am on my feet a lot. I have 2 other pairs of New Balance and they both fit great, however I found these to be too tight. I was disappointed because the colors are really nice.
I used these for long runs and to race a fall marathon. Most of my 15 mile runs or less I do in Nike free's and these are just a bit more supportive. Recommend very much! Also pr'ed in the marathon with them...
love the color
I love the color of these and the light feel when I'm running. I wore them running outside on the board walk at the beach and plan to try them out at the gym tomorrow. So far so good.
Other than wearing through them within about 2 months, they are great shoes...could tell when I needed a new pair though!
Love these shoes!
These shoes look great, feel great, and are just awesome. This is the second pair I've bought since I love them so much.
