    Size: 8.5 2A(N) USColor: Silver/Purple Verified Purchase
    I've been running in the various versions of this shoe for about 12 years, beginning with the 1210. So I've followed every model from the 1210 through the last 1260. I decided to try a new shoe a couple of months ago and after running in a different brand for a month, I came back to NB 1260. But I have to say the 1260V2 is awesome. It's a better shoe than the 1260, which I felt lacked some stability. I have a very narrow foot and have to order the 2As, which are perfect. With the 1260V2 NB brought back everything I love about this shoe, stability, cushion, yet maintaining a light weight. If you log a decent amount of miles per week and like a stability shoe I highly recommend this model. For comparison purposes- I am a female with slight build, moderate to heavy mileage overpronator. Happy running!

    I love this shoe!! I am dealing with a neuroma and falling arches. This shoe has definitely helped a ton. It helps me to hit mid foot instead of pounding the pavement. Also, I overpronate and it has helped that too. As far as sizing, I purchased th same size I wear in street shoes. I was fitted at a NB store as a 6.5. I got the 7 because I have wide feet. These have worked well for me!!

    As an amateur runner who puts in about 7 miles per week, I don't usually invest this much in my shoes-- but it was worth it. I was starting to get pain in my knees from a lack of support in my old shoes, then it stopped when I got these. I can't say I'm an expert by any means but these seem to be worth the investment if you need more support.

    The shoes are wonderful. I hated to spent $130 on shoes, but I was desperated for a shoe that was comfortable. Now I can stand and walk all day at work without the pain that other shoes caused. I have wide feet and a flat foot and these give the width and support I need to get through a work day with out the pain.

    I only wear New Balance sneakers. The shoelast on this New Balance was not appropriate for my feet. I ordered a B instead of my normal 2AA but it was still too narrow. The shoelast is the toebox, the depth, the heel etc of a particular shoe/sneaker. It was my 1st time trying the 1260 style.

    This is my 3rd pair! My first pair I wore for a 12 day trip in Germany & Austria. Then walked 17 miles in Vegas. Then while at home, used on treadmill. 2nd pair using now. All very comfortable but I have to add arch supports.

    I'm a runner and these shoes are great! They do fit a little small, but I knew that in advance so I ordered a larger size. I normally wear an 8.5 in running shoes, but I got these in a 9 and they fit perfect.
