I used to wear N.B. 1123's. My doctor strongly suggested I get these. Anyway, this is the replacement for the N.B. 1123's. It's a great shoe!!! Literally the only one I can wear all day. I walk in them, exercise in them, I do just about everything in them. I literally wear them all day nearly every single day! I can't do that with any other shoe! I need an ankle replacement. I have tried several other name brands Brooks, Nike etc. Sas shoes were very good! Anyway when they remade these they added a little more leather right at the bottom by the little toe (I guess for more support etc.),and it rubs my little toe(s). :(
I never had this problem in the 1123's!
But it truly is the only one that I can wear all day & actually walk in so I guess I'll have to deal with it. The only other thing(s) is I wish I could get longer shoe strings! lol and maybe some more colors! lol BUT seriously this is By far the BEST shoe for people with ankle or foot problems. I HIGHLY RECOMMENED THESE SHOES : )

I have wide "fred flinstone" feet, so I got these in the extra wide. I have plenty of room in the toe box and width and I also wear orthotics, so there is plenty of room for them. Usually I have problems with shin splints, when I walk everyday, but not with these shoes. They are great. Would highly recommend. Will buy this shoe again.
I would buy this product over and over!!
I wear these shoes everyday! I've had a DVT in the past and these are great for support, walking, comfort, durability, and helps prevent achy feet and legs. They are, in my opinion, a bit pricey - BUT I truly would, and will, buy them again and again!!! They are WORTH every penny!!! p.s. - I love the color too.
Need shoes for over-pronation and these were the most uncomfortable shoes I have ever owned. I walk a lot and run occasionally, but I got blisters all around the edges of my feet and along the arch which has never happened in my life. Too painful to wear for any length of time. No cushion, too bulky, looks like an orthopedic shoe. Very disappointed.
A true Motion Control Shoe
I had been wearing an Asics Motion Control shoe for years and this was a nice change. I feel this shoe really controls pronation. I ordered a half size bigger than my "real" shoe size to accommodate orthodics. Much of my knee pain has dissipated which makes this shoe AWESOME.
Good Motion control
Have been running for years, using Motion control shoes. Been trying to find replacements for NB 1012.
Great motion control,comfy but very much bulkier than 1012s.
Wish NB hadn't discontinued 1012. There isn't anything comparable.
Will keep looking.
Others might like for walking....
I have been using the 1123 for years now and I am happy with this update. It is very comfortable and much lighter. I'm not sure that it feels any wider than the previous version, as I wear a D width which is wide for women. I plan to continue buying this.
Bring back the 1123
I hike 1-2 hours 5-7 times per week.
I have successfully worn the New Balance 1123
for years. This shoe is sooooooo uncomfortable compared to the 1123. It is too wide in too box
allowing the foot to slide around thus
totally negating any motion control.

New Balance 1540 womens running shoe
I'm 77 and gave up running after I had my first hip replacement. These shoes are too wide for every day, but the extra cushioning make them great for gym use. Wish they'd make them narrower!

my favorite shoe
I'm a nurse and use these for work due to support this shoe offers. This is my third pair and will reorder again. If you pronate and have a wide foot it's the perfect shoe
Comes wide enough and with a deep toebox
This product is perfect with my custom orthodics. I needed a 4E and deep toebox and this is the only shoe I found that does the job.
Don't forget to order a larger size
Since my sister wears a smaller size shoe than me, I am going to give them to her.
purchased these shoes for my wife .... who loves them!
RRS is wonderful
Great shoe but had to return due to fit.
great for wide feet, orthotics
