These are the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. Not just athletic shoes, but any shoe. These make me want to walk. Even though NB is known for their wide assortment of running shoes, I haven't liked their running shoes for at least a couple years now. They feel hard and knobby inside and I don't feel sure-footed when jogging on a treadmill. So one day I thought I'd try my 1011's for treadmill jogging and it was great. But they're getting worn and they feel a quarter-size too small. So I ordered the 1012 a half size bigger than my 1011's. Doing so makes them feel a quarter-size too big, but not really in a bad way. They are SO comfortable. They feel light and cushiony. I jogged 3 miles on a treadmill at the gym in these shoes and it was so easy, I didn't even notice that I passed the 3 mile mark. Usually, I'm staring at the mileage counter just waiting for the 3 mile mark to hit so I can slow to a walk. I haven't tried these on an elliptical yet, but based on how wonderful they are for walking and jogging, I can't imagine any reason why they wouldn't rule for the elliptical as well.
As with the 1011, these are conservatively styled. I'm good with that. I really just wanted a basic looking black shoe that would do everything, and this one hits it out of the ballpark.
I love this shoe and may buy a second pair to put in the closet in case I don't like the 1013's when they come out.
I used to think that a do-it-all cross-trainer couldn't be very good at any one thing, and that dedicated shoes were needed. I was wrong. This shoe is great for everything.
I had a good test run during an Insanity class, during a plyometric, which involves a lot of jumping and my feet did not cramp or bother me. Mind you this was my first time and I have to break the shoes in some more. The price was fine for the quality and if you take care of them by only wearing them during workouts and untying after use, they'll last a long time. There may be better types out there, but as I said I'm new to really researching quality shoes and so far, I've had 3 pairs of New Balance and have been very happy with them. Buy a pair for each style of exercise as I said the 990's are excellent for running and these MX1012's are perfect for other gym/class use.
Back in 2012 I looked around for a proper successor to the 622 and found the 1012. Specifically, the MR1012. Someone wrote in an Amazon review that they were as close to the old 620s as they could find. They were a bit pricey but I bought a pair. They weren't the same, but really were as close to the good old 622 as I've found, and lasted for a good 18 months or so, about what I would have hoped for. When it came time to replace it, I found that the MR1012 was discontinued, but this MX1012 was available, and appeared to be the most similar offering to the MR2012.
The difference was both dramatic and disappointing. It reminded me of the 623s. The support was gone. I ran for a bit and felt pain for hours the next day. Standing more than a few hours in them led to unhappy feet.
After years of declining quality, I have lost all confidence in New Balance as a brand. I stopped by a Foot Locker this past weekend and asked a salesperson for a recommendation...he offered me the Asics Gel-Nimbus 16. I tried them on and immediately fell in love with them. After being a loyal New Balance customer for over 10 years, my time with them is done, and I'll never look back.
