Terrible replacement of previous 1340v2. Overall more narrow, tight toe bed, slips off heel, no longer tall enough to comfortably cover top of foot. (I have a high instep) does not feel as cushiony as 1340v2 either. Really disappointed. Returning these.

I usually buy the 900 series walking shoe, but couldn't pass up the savings on this style. I usually buy white, but beggars can't be choosers, right? The shoe fits as ordered (as with every New Balance shoe I have ever ordered in the past). The support is great as a running shoe, especially those long outings going from the couch to the fridge during those 30 second timeouts!!! The shoe also allows me to make those Heisman Trophy type running back cuts between the couch and love seat so I can get to the finish line (couch or fridge) in record time. I don't want to brag, but I did set a new PR the other day wearing these shoes!!! I know, I'm just like you, hate to read people bragging about such successes, but I couldn't resist!! I highly recommend these shoes to anyone who is as active as I am in need that superior NB support that this shoe offers!!!

The shoes were very comfortable right out of the box. Fit was perfect. There was no irritation or rubbing during the break in period.

I have purchased an iteration of this shoe for many years starting back with the 1040’s. The shoe has changed some over the years but is still a basic stability shoe. They work for my low arches and pronation though I do wear an orthotic due to having Morton’s neuromas in both feet. I have been afraid to even try a different shoe because these work well and keep my knees and hips pain free. The only cons I have is the lack of color options (your choice is white/blue or black which are pretty boring) and the fact, that for me the soles on the outside of my heels wear totally out at around 300 miles. (I run primarily on asphalt roads and concrete sidewalks.) I bought a black pair last year and they made it 323 miles then I went with a white/blue pair and they only made it 273 miles. The black pair seemed last longer and probably still had a few miles on them but I hated the black color. It has to do with the way I run and heel strike but at $150 a pair I go through 3 pair a year, so it gets expensive. Don’t know if any other shoe would last longer. The 1340v3 does have a fairly roomy toe box which I also need because of the neuroma’s.

I'm 65-years-old and have been active my entire life. So my feet have seen a lot of miles, and I need something with both support and comfort, something that supports my not so good arches and cushions my worn out knees while giving me the confidence to move a little faster than I would with a lesser shoe. I recommend these shoes.

I recently bought the black shoe of the same style from New Balance. Really comfortable and accommodating of my orthotics and my wide width. Some NB styles say they are extra wide, but they most certainly are not!! I’ve found this to be true for their hiking boots. Definitely not wide enough and my baby toes are always in such pain after wearing them even for a short time. Fortunately, This one was. Very stylish with shorts. Plus, they happened to be on sale, so it was an added bonus for me!! You won’t be disappointed with these.

Really comfortable shoe. I have very wide feet and I need more of a box toe type of shoe, plus I have orthotics. They fit perfectly the second I put my foot inside of them. There is no break-in period and with any good shoe, there shouldn’t be. I plan on buying another pair. You should too!

Wish they came in more colors. I've been wearing these for 5 years. This is the newer version, but they still wear great. I had no issue with needing a wider width than I did in the previous version.

I have really enjoyed these shoes. Plenty of support and cushioning. They are a little heavy in the sole but the support far out ways this concern.

I bought a pair of these to replace this same style my son in law wears. He needs a shoe for overpronation and has been happy with this style. He is a big guy, well over 6 feet, and does add a wedge to help. Got them at a very good price for Christmas. Thank you Zappos.

I ordered these for my husband. He has worn New Balance for many years. He usually take an 4E, but ordered the 6E and he loves them. I like the colors, a little more stylish than all white.

The shoe was wider in the forefoot compared to V2 (although I prefer a more narrow forefoot) and the materials were good. Regarding the forefoot thickness, your foot feels closer to the road where as I prefer a thicker forefoot such as offered in the Beast 2018. What I didn't like the most was the thin, stretchy laces and in width 'D', I had to lace then completely to the last eyelet and tie a double knot so the laces wouldn't touch the ground when tied. I think they over corrected the V2 which had trail shoe laces and could never seem to be secure.
I'd also recommend:

I have hard feet to fit. I have had good success with New Balance, I went for this model since it was the closest to the pair I have been wearing daily for a few years. I noticed right away that the sizing was not what I expected, I normally get a 9 1/2 2E but this size in this model resulted in a shoe that was much too long and narrow. I tried 4 different pairs, with different length and width combinations, and none fit me right. It came down to the shoe rubbing my pinky toe, even in the 4E width. This model has a outer reinforced toe (which my old pair did not have) which was the main cause of my toe rubbing. Too bad, I was hopeful these would be a good pair for me. I bought through Zappos on purpose so that I could try on different pairs and not have a short window of time to return them. Thanks for being cool, Zappos!

These shoes look nice! However they are like all the New Balance shoes now with a rollbar, too hard, no cushioning in the ball of the foot. I wear orthotics so I thought maybe I could get away with less cushioning but no. I wish New Balance would make supportive shoes with a rollbar but make them cushioned in the forefoot. They would make a lot of people happy from what I read online!!!!! I'm back to still looking a good shoe that I can walk in, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find anything!!!! I will continue to look however because I have too!!!!

So I have to say how disappointed I am. Usually NB in 4E (double wide) feel pretty comfortable. The arch support is great, the heel support good, and they felt wide enough in the toe box, but after wearing them for a few hours (unfortunately outside of the house so I can't return them) my toes were rubbed very badly. I think it's the material. Very hard and the shoes are super heavy. Time to try yet another shoe!

I’m so disappointed in New Balance. I’ve had several versions of the 1340, and it seems that with each upgrade, the quality and fit goes down. I have very wide feet with bunions; it’s difficult to find a good fit. These felt like a EE or narrower, not a EEEE. There were unfinished seams on the tongue, and it just didn’t feel solid. I’ll be returning. Thanks, Zappos, for your great customer service.

These shoes are not really comfortable. They are really hard on the feet, no cushioning and extremely heavy. I sent them back.
