Product Description

Ready to kick your running up to the next level? The New Balance 890 is a designed for neutral runners looking for a lighter, more technical shoe. It's a lighter shoe than most too, thanks to unique Revlite foam which delivers the same responsiveness and durability of foams 30% heavier. Plus this shoe is handsome and sturdy enough for everyday wear.

The sleek New Balance 890 training shoe delivers a lighter, more energizing take on the running experience. With a lightweight synthetic and mesh upper for breathability and support, this men's neutral running shoe gains its enhanced performance from REVlite midsole foam, which is 30% lighter than traditional foams but delivers the same responsiveness, durability and compression set. No-sew, welded seams guard against chafing, as flat laces and lacing holes lock in place for a snug, comfortable fit. An ABZORB® Strobel board and removable ABZORB® insole ensure a cushioned ride. The full ground-contact Ndurance® rubber outsole of the New Balance 890 running shoe is as compatible with midfoot and forefoot strikes as it is with traditional heel strike, adding to its broad appeal.

Hello runners,

I'm a 48 year old male and run 35 miles per week. I moved from a neutral cushioning New Balance 759 shoe into the 890. They are definitely light and my speed improved an average of .2 MPH, which is pretty substantial. They fit well, nice and snug in the midsection with still some room in the forefoot. True to size if you own any NB products already.

Of course, that lightness comes at a cost, and that's in the form of less padding. Some doctors and running experts are now saying that less padding is actually better for you but, even if true, you might want to ease into running with these if you're weekly mileage is high. I noticed some aches and pains when I started with these and had to back off for a while.

Style-wise, I'd like to add that these shoes are different than other running shoes. Specifically, the uppers are made of a thinner, simpler material and the sole seems simpler too. Hate to say it, but the construction comes off as a little "cheap" at first blush, but they feel good like I said earlier.

UPDATE: I'm on my third pair of these now, and happy to say that I'm suffering less aches and pains than ever! Knee pain totally gone, don't be fooled by the thinner padding, these shoes work fine!! I'm getting 350-400 miles out of a pair, but I only weigh 160 and my running style is pretty easy on shoes overall, I'd say. Oh, and the simple upper I mention earlier stays cleaner and wipes off easier than any shoe I've owned. I plan to keep buying these as long as NB makes them. . .

Realizing that I was a supine/neutral runner and had been running in a shoe for severe over-pronators (thanks fleet feet!) I went to my local running store and hashed it out with the staff for a bit about my gait, stride, step, etc... Well we tried a few different models and prior to today I've been in Mizuno's or Saucony's and personally love the shoe... well New Balance, for some reason I never took seriously, never had interest in wearing - until today.

My foot has a high arch and is quite narrow and this shoe was a perfect match. They had designed this shoe differently than any of there products with a nod to the minimilist/forefoot striking crowd but still true to those that heel strike and require a degree of cushioning.

Well day one was a 10 mile break in. I'm 6'5'', about 190-200 pounds and took it pretty easy this first day. I loved how the shoe gripped at the cement effectively. How it snugly wraps around my foot without having any pressure points, yet still gives enough room to wiggle my toes. *It could breath a little better as I did feel that my foot was a bit warmer than I'm used too but it's been a bit hotter this week as well.

So compared to what I've been running in in the past... I'm very excited to see how this shoe will compliment my running. I typically love endurance events so it will interesting to see how durable this shoe is. If I remember to I'll follow up in a few weeks once I get a couple hundred miles under my belt.

I purchased this shoe after doing a 5 mile test run in them, courtesy of my local running store. I loved the feel and the cushioning immediately! The light weight was a definite positive too! I wanted a shoe that I could wear for race distances ranging from half marathon to marathon and I found it in this shoe. It has been a joy to wear! My legs feel fresher after long, hard runs when wearing this shoe! I love the styling and look of this shoe also! I am very happy with this shoe and would highly recommend it! Two of my long distance running friends have also purchased this shoe and are enjoying its attributes immensely!

These are my first pair of New Balance running shoes. I'm fairly new to being a regular runner and before these always ran in Nike's, specifically LunarGlides and LunarGlide 3's. I thought those were good shoes for me and wanted the convenience of the built in Nike +. However, after continued knee/leg pain I started to look at other reviews and do more research. It turned out that they weren't the best shoes for me, as I have high arches and mildly over pronate.
I was not hoping to spend too much, yet wanted a good shoe. I was hoping for comfort, support, and adequate cushioning. These MR 890s are perfect. They seem extremely light, yet provide plenty of support. For under $60, they are definitely worth the money. I haven't had them too long (only about 50 miles), so I can't comment on the longevity of the shoes. However, I did run my first half marathon in them and they were great.

I got these shoes because I'm interested in eventually transitioning to minimalist shoes, but did not want to make the jump too abruptly. These seemed like a good intermediate step to help me lighten up and work on my fore-foot strike. Reviews were favorable, so I went for it, and I am so happy I did. The very first run felt amazing, so light and so comfortable. I love these shoes and look forward to putting in some more miles in them, and testing them on some longer runs. They are perfect for what I needed: a shoe that perfectly bridges the gap between my old heavy, cushioned shoes and the nearly-barefoot minimalist pairs that are becoming so popular. These shoes are so comfortable and light, I might not make the transition to the ultra-minimalist at all, but may instead keep on running with this style for ever.
