I realize I may be doing this too late as it is now endagered, but here is my 2 cents:
The shoe is pretty similar to the previous versions in fit and feel. The biggest changes are the felxibility in the sole, and the material of the upper.
So I prefer a stiff sole. The 890v1 was suggested to me at the time and it was perfect. Then eventually I switched to the v2. It was fine. Now with the v3, the sole seems to be more flexible. For me that is a negative, but I realize that for many people it is probably a good thing.
As for the material, yes it is lightweight, but it feels cheap. That moght be becasue it is just a lot thinner, but i do not like the way it feels at all.

Lightweight and very comfortable!
I bought my NB 890v3s online without the luxury of trying on a pair first, but this running shoe has exceeded my expectations. It is the lightest running shoe I have ever owned and I love the purple color with the neon green laces. I was concerned that such a light shoe wouldn't have enough support for my high arches but that hasn't been an issue. I've worn them at the gym on the treadmill and eliptical, running outside on pavement, and walking around town. I ordered a second pair because I don't want to wear any of my other running shoes now!
The Most Comfortable Shoe I have Ever Ha
Since going through chemo for breast cancer, I was looking for a lightweight shoe with good support to try and get back into shape. This shoe fit perfectly. They are so comfortable, I feel like I am not even wearing shoes. I picked the pink shoe. I was happy to see that on the heel was the pink ribbon. Also on the insole is the pink ribbon design and a Susan G. Komen for the Cure label.
Not What I Expected From New Balance
I have had New Balance running shoes in the past and decided to try these out. I was so disappointed at the fit and feel of the shoes. I ordered 1/2 size up from my normal size and the toe box was very tight, the shoe did not fit well on my foot and it felt like there was almost material to the shoe. They were very uncomfortable to wear.

Fits smaller than previous versions
I have several pairs of the original 890 and version 2 so I was surprised when I ordered the same size in the 890V3 but it is considerably too small. Visibly smaller side by side with the previous ones. Toes touching the end. So - recommend whole size up on the V3
My favorite running shoe!
I'm an older runner - mid 50's - and run almost daily at least 5 miles. THis shoe gives my old feet great support. THis is the 4th pair I've bought - they're my favorite running shoe~
Keep on runnin'
this is a great racing shoe.. I will use it for races shorter than 10k and track workouts, afraid it doesn't have enough support for long runs but super fast feel
I would buy this product again.

Wouldn't buy again
I have only ran in these shoes about 10-15 times, and the sole has become unglued around the ball my foot. The shoes were okay as far as cushion and weight, but the durability is obviously lacking.
