I usually run in Nike, LunarGlide and LunarEclipse but with the NB 870v2 I am a New Balance convert. I was recently disappointed with the LunarGlides 3 which i got in 9 wide. I read a review of the 870 v2s and thought I'd try something new. At first, I had to send back the size 9 wide I usually wear in other brands because they were too short. But the 9.5 wide was perfect. I am a mild overpronator and wear custom insoles instead of the ones the shoe comes with but even without my own insoles, I felt that my foot had adequate support. I was comfortable right away, and have run both on pavement and trail/dirt path with these shoes. The width is great for my wide feet, and the cushioning feels great.
The only negative is that the outsold has little holes in which gravel can easily lodge but that's a small price to pay for a good ffitting shoe!

Too Narrow for Me
Normally I don't order wide shoes but with these I wish I had. I ordered 1/2 size up as recommended but they are too narrow for my feet so they are going back. I've worn Saucony Rides (1-4) for years and they did have a wide toe box. I hate sending things back b/c it feels like $10 down the drain and the good deal on these shoes is no longer a good deal...not to mention the hassle of finding a box and mailing it. I gave them a 2 b/c they are so darn cute (better than a 1) but the narrowness really disappointed me.
Decent running shoe
The first pair I bought were possibly mismarked as they felt a full size too big. I returned them and bought my normal shoe size. They seem true to size so now I wish I had a half size up to avoid toe damage during my long runs. Aside from the size issue, they are comfortable and feel great to run in! I have a wide foot and the width is perfect. I also over probate so I have to purchase stabity shoes. They seem to be fine so far! Great shoe for the price!
After battling bad blisters for over a year' it was suggested I try these shoes. Seems I had been wearing the wrong size and width in another brand which was also so heavy. So, I was pleased with my purchase and am on my third pair. The only thing I don't like is how the inside at the heel "bleeds" and ruins all my socks and I am really OCD about dirty shoes and socks. Minor con in the grand scheme of things I know...

I have not yet run in these as I have ordered the same shoe twice, only to discover that they are too short.
I am anxious to compare them to the Asics 2170. In the Asics I comfortably wear a 11M. However, in the NB, this size is too short and too tight. Unfortunately, roadrunnersports does not carry this shoe in 11.5M
Color is even better than I expected! Extremely comfortable & affordable. I am a nurse & am on my feet all day. I wear them to work & to the gym & they are perfect for both. I would buy them again & again.

"great looks,excellent comfort"
These shoes are great! Im on a cross country team and these have worked very well. I would recommend this pair of shoes to people with high arches.
LOVE these shoes.
These shoes rock. I love everything about them from the look, the performace, to the price. My first experience with Road Runner has definitely been a good one!
New Balance does it again. These shoes are wonderful, comfortable
Light weight. Purchased two pairs one for myself and daughter.
It's all good!!!
One not great is it irritates my Achilles tendon on the left foot.
One great is how stylin' the shoe is... great for zumba lightweight!!
