Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I've been a fan of New Balance shoes for years - they generally fit my feet better than some of the competing brands. That said, I happened upon a Nike model (since discontinued, and impossible to find even on the internet anymore -- the Lunar Elite II's) that I loved, and which I've owned about six pairs of over the past couple of years. Since I knew that New Balance has worked well for me in the past, I picked these up as a replacement for the Nikes.
Pros: Good cushioning, but not a lot of "bounce" -- I don't feel as though I'm running on springs, just well-supported soles; typical New Balance fit (subjective, I know, but that's the best way to describe it...they just fit my rather average-width feet better than typically-narrow Nike's); light; great color design. They breathe a lot better than the Nike's. (Conversely, this probably will mean my feet get soaked when I run in any kind of rain...I've been babying them this week.)
I bought these for my husband, he no longer runs but he treadmills everyday. I had to return the first pair 10.5 due to short toe box. I ordered an 11 and they are almost perfect. Shipping is very fast and the free return is a nice plus for the customer The toe box again just seems a little narrower then his last pair of NB but they were a different style, a wide would be too large for his foot. He normally wears a 10.5 M. These shoes are a nice color acutally nicer looking in person then online. I would have given them 5 stars if they were a little wider in the toe. I would recommend buying a 1/2 size larger, Will come back later if there are any issues with the shoe. My husband would recommend this shoe for general excercise but for running he said he would need a wider toe for impact esp. if you strike your toes when running. I hope this helps. I know I use recommendations from other customers and find them to be of the utmost help.
I run track and wore these to 1 and 1/2 practices, then the tread starting peeling off the bottom of the shoe. I have owned the previous version of this shoe for over a year and never had any problems. They were just getting worn out. It looks like New Balance cut some corners on the new version :(
