Push your runs to the limit, not your feet. The 940v4 stability running shoe from New Balance is made for over pronators. This runner is designed with a high-density medial post, T-BEAM technology for torsional stability in the shoe and ABZORB cushioning.
I advise every obese person with flatfoot to purchase NEW Balance 940v4 , it supports more weight than 940v3. Once you put it on your feet your stance is corrected your walk is BALANCED , it prevents you from swinging left and right while walking makes you just walk straight like a Fashion model With full confidence. you feel you wanna run.
OK. Let me say that I still love my NB shoes, and have purchased four pair within the last year. With that said, I have noticed a few issues that have made me disappointed. First, the cushioning on the heal has come loose on one of my pair of shoes. Second, my newest pair has a spot on the right shoe that rubs my big toe. Before you say it must be the design of the shoe, remember that I have three other pairs just like it.
I am a 70 year old man w coronary heart disease. I walk 6 miles a day in these shoes. They are a favorite brand and this pair did not disappoint me.
I'm 53 years old. 199 cm tall. I've only been running for about 8 months, and while I've lost 70 lbs, I'm still obese on the BMI scale. Dont' judge me ... I'm doing my best.
I am not a pronator nor supinater and this shoe is definitely NOT neutral. The shoe forces you to supinate (the footbed leans to the outside, because the sole is much thinner there) and, hence, the outside of the shoes aren't cushioned very well causing the outside of my forefoot to rub against the side of the shoe...to the point of irritation and, no doubt, a blister were I to walk or run very far in these shoes. In case you're wondering, they do fit, especially in the heel...about the only positive thing I can say about them..the toe box is a bit wide for my foot. Because I have a narrow (B) width foot, I've worn NB off and on for over 40 years. I want lateral stability in a shoe and these definitely don't provide that. This is the first pair of NB shoes I've ever been less than satisfied with. I don't buy the less expensive models...only 800 series or above. Not a happy camper...even in the slightest. I've wasted my $100 and the next pair won't be New Balance!
For many years I have purchased New Balance running shoes because I need a size 13 Narrow with a long toe box because I have a very long big toe. New Balance shoes are the only brand I have been able to find that reliably fits my rather unusual foot shape. In buying these I finally went to the trouble of examining the wear pattern on my shoes to find that the wear pattern (more on the inside or medial part of the shoes) showed I had mild overpronation. These are very comfortable for walking; they provide great support and appear to be well made and will hopefully last well. Beside running shoes I am a repeat customer of their Men's 577 V1 Lace-up Walking Shoe as well. I highly recommend New Balance shoes especially if your shoe sizes is a bit out of the ordinary width or size range.
Seems like a take off from the discontinued 1260 series, which were my favorites running shoes for many years. For me good combination of overpronation/cushioning, yet light weight enough for long runs. 4 stars instead of 5, because front/toe area a bit to wide for me.
