I'm absolutely shocked the reviews aren't strong on this model. It's an absolutely amazing shoe. I have plantar fasciitis and bunionettes (bunions on the outside of your foot--near the little toe), and my podiatrist specifically recommended this model and the ariel by Brooks when I came in for a cortizone shot after a PF flare up. Both were good but the New Balance keeps my foot in place much better and is lighter. I usually prefer a narrow heel and wide toe box, and excellent support is needed since I have a high arch and the PF. I thought the toe box on this one--though not as wide as some others--still gives plenty of room. The soft sides have "give" for my buionettes so there isn't rubbing. The arch support is enough that I can wear these without my orthotics on a long walk and still feel great the next morning. And these are way better looking than the other stability shoes I've gotten from NB in the past (I'm a fan of the 847 and the 928 but they certainly aren't anything to look at--and the heel in the 928 runs a little wide for me). Definitely suggest folks give this model a try. I think it's perfect.

This model is the replacement model for 1123 (per New Balance customer service). I have had two pairs of model 1123 in the past in size 6½, so I assumed that I would wear a 6½ in this new model. That is not true. The 6½ in this new model is a bit too small. So while the older model runs a bit large, this recent model runs true to size. I am returning the 6½ that I originally ordered and exchanging for a 7. I absolutely love New Balance sneakers. This particular model has relieved all of my plantar faciitis symptoms.

Comfortable right out of the box! Lots of room for bunions! This shoe has the New Balance SL-2 shoe last, which has a narrower heel and a wider toe box.

I'm so sad that NB had to go and mess up the original 1540. I wore that shoe for years. This version just doesn't have the same feel as far as comfort, support, and stability control. I would have kept it anyway because it's still probably the best running/walking shoe for over-pronators but I can't get past the ugly color choices they have for women.

I am an overpronator and a fan of NB sneakers. However, I don't care for this sneaker. I felt like I was walking on half of a shelf --from the arch back to my heel felt like a stiff board with a noticeable dip in the front. I can't explain it better than that and it just wasn't comfortable for me. Otherwise, the sizing seemed right.
