I do not own lots of shoes, but I wanted to mention that I found this to be an excellent shoe on the treadmill. Now that it is fall, I am trying to transition over to treadmill because our trails are closing for the winter snow season and the shoes that serve me well on the trails do not serve me at all on the treadmill. I bought a pair in a different brand that I thought would work well on treadmill but these New Balance are better. I have some foot pain that is aggravated by treadmill running and these shoes help keep that trouble at bay.
...but unfortunately doesn't fit. My daughter's foot is unusual in that it is very wide, is very thick at the instep, and has short toes. She usually needs a 6 or 6.5 WW or, sandals with adjustable straps. Her eyes lit up when she saw this shoe. It's not easy being a cute teenage girl and not being able to find cute shoes. This shoe is very attractive. VERY cute. She put it on and and...it fit... sort of, with very thin socks. Not the kind of socks you need to run and walk in. She so wanted these to fit! She got both a 6.5 and 7 WW. Neither was wide enough across the ball of her foot. Sigh...they'll have to go back. They did seem well made and as a mother, I was interested in the extra large openings in the mesh for summer ventilation.
This is the first pair of New Balance I've had in quite a while. The shoe runs a little narrow, which isn't a problem for me, however I would imagine if my feet were wider or late into long runs this could be a problem. I purchased this shoe to help with some pronation I'm having after an ankle injury. The shoe feels pretty supportive so far. I wish it had a little more cushioning- if it did I'd be more prone to wear it on longer runs. For now I'm sticking with runs of 8 miles or less with this shoe.
