"I loved the V2 and V3 of the 1080, 2 ironman events in them, numerous long runs back to back, no blisters, rubs, tough shoes that lasted 85kg of pounding on winter pavements and summer pounding on trails. Then the V4 came along, very light as comfortable as others, great I thought. Oh dear....training for an ironman this year they split on both shoes on the mid foot area of the shoe, Sweatshop replaced them no queries, spot on customer service. New pair have done the same in 12 weeks training for the Snowdonia marathon in a few weeks. Why does the evolution of such a good shoe have to always result in another area of weakness, evolution to revolution! Do I take them back to sweatshop? seems a little unfair, its not really their fault. are others experiencing the same issues, if so let NB know!"

Yes, I recommend this product.
"These shoes are fantastic. They are expensive shoes but they are worth the money. I under-pronate when i run but these support my feet extremely well. The other reviews have been comparing them to the previous model of this shoe. The difference has led them to give very average reviews. Ignore these reviews if you haven't had the previous model. Don't waste your money on cheap shoes; go for the best!!"
