I bought this shoe after being diagnosed with plantar faciitis. I wasn't sure about the shoe at first, I found I was hurting worse after I wore it all day. I then realized that it's because the shoe is supporting me in areas I had never been supported in. After wearing this shoe I do indeed believe it's one of the best shoes available. I don't regret this purchase one bit and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a good supportive shoe. Thumbs up!

I purchased these shoes as an upgrade from my 1224's, and they feel great. I am EXTREMELY flat footed, so I need excellent stability to avoid the pronation problem.

I ordered this shoe from Amazon and the service was great, delivered in one day, and the shoe was attractive. Before spending this much on a running shoe, I should have made sure it was an appropriate fit for someone who wears shoes out on the outside of the shoe, I'm not sure if this is called an underpronator. This shoe is definitely designed for someone whose feet roll inwards when running or walking. Next time, I will do more research on the design of the shoe before buying. I returned these and ordered the Asics Gel Nimbus 11 that match my shoe wear pattern better than the WR 1225.

I bought these as replacement for my 1224s. Loved the 1224s but love these even more. Great support and cushion. Due to tendentious in my left foot, I always replace the insoles with superfeet insoles. I run approx 20 miles/wk and have no problems.

Side note: I usually wear a size 8 but always order size 9 in NB shoes that I use for running. Non-running NB shoes I typically wear 8.5.

This is my third pair of high-end New Balances, and I agree with previous comments about sizing - this shoe just fits differently! Walking around the house they felt fine, but a short run left me with spots rubbed raw and blisters. Sad to relegate such a fancy pair of shoes to walking the dogs, but such is life. I went with the Nike Frees for running instead - LOVE THEM!

I've worn New Balance before and initially the cushioning and support is great. I just started wearing these in late July/early August, running ~15 miles a week max. I'm trying to get back into running. I used to be able to log 50+ miles a week in, but I'm not quite there yet. I know what I should get out of a pair of good shoes. For these 1225's, I had no issue breaking them in, they were perfect right out of the box. No blisters, just a nice smooth first run.

This past weekend I wore them for a five mile run and my feet and legs were aching. I couldn't wait to get them off. Upon inspection I realized the cushioning was already worn out. They failed the "twist test" the forefoot was extremely pliable with a very gentle torque applied to twist them. I always have a backup pair of new shoes ready, so I took those (same make and model) and tried to twist those and they were firm/non-pliable with the same amount of force. I'm semi-neutral with my steps, so the majority of the wear is on the forefoot and very little on the heels.

I don't think I logged 100 miles in these before the cushioning in the forefoot was shot. Unless you'e getting these for REALLY cheap (closeout somewhere) you're only getting 1/3 of the life/miles out of this shoe. Retailing at $140, I have high exceptions. I had similar issues with the NB 1061's and thought these would be a step up. I was able to get ~200-220 out of each of the 1061s I had. I loved the 1050's but they don't make them like that anymore.

Size Name: 10 C/D USColor Name: YellowVerified Purchase
was very pleased with the fast shipping from this company....item was new in box...however the shoe itself was VERY big.....i started a new fitness plan, consisting mainly of walking. I had never splurged on myself to buy an actual brand name running shoe, however i did my research and was able to get a very good deal so i went ahead and purchased a pair of NB 572's and fell in love with the comfort level...after walking an average of 20 miles a week for the passed 7 months, i started to notice my shin splints acting up again and my knees were getting tired mid-way through my trek. Looking at the shoe, lol, well let's say i definitely got my monies worth so i was looking to upgrade..thinking that NB sizing would be the same...i read the reviews on these and was quite excited to receive them..i ordered my normal size 10D....got them in..tried them on...disappointed....i tried wearing them for several walks...way too long..way too wide....i seriously felt like i was wearing clown shoes....luckily they fit my husband, so it wasn't a total loss...i'd say they are at least a full size too long...they are very lightweight and seemed to have great cushioning..my hubby is enjoying them and has joined me on several of my walks now!!

Very good shoe. I bought this pair for my wife as an upgrade from her older 1224's. All in all a great comfortable shoe for walking or running. Very durable and comfortable.
