True to the advertisement, these shoes really do help the bigger runners who run longer distances. Great cushioning in heel led to no pains in knees and definite reduction of shin pain post 6 mile run straight out of the box. Would recommend. For reference - I am 6'4 and 210 lbs.

These are maybe the worst shoes I have ever run in. After running about a mile and a half I have the worst shin splints. It seems like no matter how much I try to set my foot down it slaps on the pavement. I went back to my old worn out Asics and my feet and shins feel better already.

I bought these for my 14 year old son who wears trainers pretty much constantly. He loves these and they have worn extremely well for running, working out, some indoor lacrosse and daily school wear. Zappos has amazing service.

Most comfortable running shoe I've ever owned. Shoe is light but support and cushioning are solid. Exactly what I expected from a New Balance running shoe made in the US!

This is my fourth pair of these shoes. I'm diabetic and have plantar problems. These have taken care of that and are very comfortable. Also with Zappos 10 star service, how can you go wrong?

I have been purchasing NB running shoes for 25 years (and more recently trail shoes) because NB has accommodated wide sizes. Previously, always the most comfortable shoes. This is the first pair that are not true to the previous fits, and I had to return. It is at least half size too small, maybe full size. I compared the M1080's to my existing NB 760's and the arch appeared about an inch closer to the heal. My toe hit the end of the shoes.

I tried so many.. Mizunos CreationEnigma, Brooks Glycerin 9 & 10, Saucony Triumph 9. These are the best. They aren't mushy like the GlycerinTriumph, but also not horribly stiff like the Mizunos. Actually, I was a loyal NB customer for long and wanted to try other brands - ended up with NB again. This V2 edition is a real progress, very cushioned and shock absorbent. Works very well with orthotics. The only downside, is that on the internet pictures they look sharp and narrow (a bit like Brooks' style). On realty, the colors are less attractive and they look a bit bulky. Anyway it's not a fashion show, I just say don't expect them to looks as good as in the pictures.

They're pricey, but the top notch quality and comfort justify it. Visited a store and tried 5 other brands in this high-end range and the NB won out. Great fit to my foot( regular and normal strike) and very cushy. Used them one month now and no issues....except soles are slippery on wet asphalt so watch that

One of the most comfortable Running shoes I have owned. Very lightweight, a lot of breathing room through the mesh. Best part is they are still made in the USA.

This is the best shoe I have ever owned. I was looking for a neutral shoe in a B width which would also accommodate orthotics. I have run some 80 miles so far and have been delighted in all ways.

The only reason for not giving 5 stars is the illusive picture. Not just on Zappos, all over the net this model looks a bit thinner and sharper than traditional NB shoe style. In reality is looks bulky, and the color isn't that attractive (I took the grey style). But as a running shoe I love it, more than Brooks Glycerin 10 (more shock absorption). It's a good value for money, my only disappointment is its looks.

Nothing beats Asics in comfort and style! These were for my 12 year old daughter. Now I'm not saying they made her the 2nd fastest in the mile sprint...but she wore them right out of the box for it and never got a single blister! Plus the colors match her all star cheer team...so what could be better!

I suffer from bilateral neuropathy and the comfort that these shoes give to me are fabulous. I have tried many other brands but they pale by comparison. Can't wait to order another pair!

I've been wearing these 1080's for 3 years I love 'em. I weigh about 250 so I need shoes that have good cushion these do and there sturdy I walk 2 miles everyday and then I wear them all day I'll keep buying them, also Zappos service is probably the best in the business always a pleasure.

Simply put, fantastic shoes. They are extremely comfortable and offer great support. I am not a runner, I walk a lot though (I am a diabetic and walk to keep my blood sugar under better control)and I have a bunch of shoes for this purpose (Brooks Trance 11, Saucony Progrid Guide 5, Asics Gel Fortitude 5) and these NB1080v2 are the best of the lot. I am thinking of buying another pair to replace my Asics that are close to being worn out.

Brands I'd also recommend: Brooks, Asics, Saucony

Recently bought a pair of these NB 1080s. They are terrific. I have a very wide (4E) foot, the toe box is quite wide enough. General fit is excellent, and the padding is top notch. I've put about 100 miles on them, and they are comfortable and wearing very well. Terrific shoe, highly recommended.
