These are big, boxy, heavy workhorses. They are gray and navy blue and won't win any fashion awards. Prescription orthotics fit nicely with the sock liner removed. They are unbeatable with a pair of Thorlo running socks.
I have run 30 marathons and ultras in 587s. They are good for the road, the trail or the treadmill. A pair lasts me 200-250 miles. Despite my best efforts, the outside of the heel wears out first. The padding eventually starts to compress; when that happens my quads hurt after a run. The outsole is extremely durable.
These are the best shoes in their class. Hands down. I tried the Brooks Beast a couple times. They were good and similar to 587s but not as durable. I bought a pair of Hoka One-Ones that hurt my feet. They were light as a feather but the toe box too constricting. The only shoe that was ever a rival for the 587 was the "ancient" Nike Ulysses or maybe the old Saucony Grid Stabil.
When I walk, my foot tends to walk more on the outside of the heel. If you looked at my shoes from the back, you'd see more wear on the right side of the right shoe and the left heel of the left shoe. This particular shoe was suggested to help mitigate my posture. It seems to help.
My main concern about them is the way they end up looking on one's foot. They have a kind of orthopedic look. They look like some medical shoe. The style is a bit on a poor side. Also, they didn't hold up quite as well as I expected. The sole started coming apart on mine after about 6-8 months.
They're a great shoe for the hard to fit foot. I applaud New Balance for keeping the industry in America and making a good product, but they need to upgrade the quality-- more stitching and less glue.
So here's my story: I have that feet condition, Over-Pronation I think it goes. I didn't know this at first, but I wondered why my feet hurt all the time: forget exercising, just walking from A to B. So I sucked it up, and spent the $ to see a foot specialist. Turns out my feet are wibbly-wobbly. Weight wouldn't be distributed evenly when they hit the ground, instead they would jerk slightly at the ankles causing my feet to have to brace and therefore feel that extra tension.
He suggested I search for motion stability shoes. But there aren't a lot of them out there, and on top of that, I have rather large and wide feet, and I'm a girl! So you can imagine how much I hate shoe shopping. I must have tested out half a dozen different pairs before I settled on the M587.
So here's what you want to know: I NO LONGER HAVE ANY FOOT PAIN!!! None, not one bit. I wear these shoes everyday all day. I wear them at the gym (mainly because owning a second and separate pair is too costly) and wear them for everyday activities. This is pretty revolutionary for me, not having any pain means I can actually be more physically active. It's ridiculous to sound so cliche, especially over an ugly pair of sneakers but: these shoes changed my life.
In response to another commentators, who knows if they smell because I have put them through a lot in the past 6 months, including one really really wet day. I wouldn't recommend this particular pair mainly because of the look: massive and ugly. But you really can't put a price (or look) on not having feet pains right? Amazon has free returns on shoes so I recommend trying them out.
And a few small things:
-The shoes make me look 2 inches taller which i love!
-The laces comes undone all the time, i should replace them...
-I've never had a problem with slipping in them.
-The fit is rather large and I'm wearing a size smaller than I'm used to.
-I wear these shoes with an insert that I bought from my doctor, otherwise I don't think I could fill them.
-The weight of the shoe it quite bulky so running in them is challenging.
