And the addition of REVlite in the forefoot and an all-new blown rubber forefoot provides a plush, bouncy feel at toe-off.

    "It is one of the most comfortable running shoe I have owned. I run daily and have found that this shoe reduces the soreness in my shin and knee when running."

    Good running shoe made uncomfortable

    - Woodbury, MN

    "I'm not sure whose idea it was to make the tongue longer and attach a stiff plastic tag to it. The binding effect on my instep makes it unwearable."

    "I bought two pair of the NB 1260v6. I have a wide foot and have trouble fitting a comfortable running shoe. These were perfect and just right for my purposes. I know now that in the future all of my athletic shoes will be New Balance."

    Sweet Six: New 1260 is a winner!

    - Philadelphia, PA

    "I'm hooked on the 1260 and have owned at least one pair of each of the previous five versions. This one surpasses the others in comfort while maintaining the stability it has long been known for. Sweet ride!"

    Enjoying the 1260

    "I've run on New Balance for many years. The last two pair of NBs I used were 940s. But because of age (60+) and changes in my stride, I've noticed that the 940s tended to cause my foot to roll a bit too much to the outside. So I decided to try the 1260v6 and have thoroughly enjoyed the stable, well-cushioned, snug feel of each foot-fall. I'd recommend this shoe to anyone who desires some correction for over-pronation, but not too much correction. The shoe is a bit heavy, but overall I think that I've found that this shoe strikes a balance between correction for some over-pronation and a shoe that provides stable cushioning. Well done, NB!"

    Great Update from Previous Version

    - Honolulu, HI

    "This is a great update from version 5. Better cushioning so don't feel like my feet are directly on the pavement and a more supportive fit. They also worked on and just about solved the worse issue with version 5 which was twisted laces."

    "I've been running a while, but I wasn't serious about it until a couple of weeks ago and I had been using just regular Nike Free Runs, and I was told by my friend to spend good money on a good shoe, so that's what I did. Needless to say, I'm GLAD I spent the money on these shoes, I noticed I wasnt a severe pronator, but it was definitely there... the first minute I put these shoes on to run, I knew they were going to get a lot of miles on them, they literally feel amazing, I would explain it as "running on clouds" per say, it's simply an amazing shoe, with TONS of stability, and my pronation is no longer an issue, now when I run and look at my shoes after, it's all a midline strike, I simply love it, I'm working up to a 10 K which for most runners isn't a big deal, but I'm new, and will most definitely be using these shoes come race day, they are the best! Also, the yellow color I didn't think I would like, but it's actually quite nice, it's a "highliter" yellow color and the contrast with the grey just brings it out, definitely an eye catcher! They are slightly heavy, but then again I was running in Free Runs..... but I'll sacrifice weight for the support that will push me through a race anyday!!"

    Great shoe for the overpronator!

    - Brownsville TX

    "Such a comfortable fit! I'm amazed how light these shoes are for the moderate/severe overpronator such as myself. It has just the right amount of cushion and stability for my foot and quite frankly I could jog for miles in them! I didn't have the previous version 1260 V5 so I can't compare but they feel as comfortable or even more comfortable than my Asics Gel Foundations. One more thing. If you all can shave a few ounces off on the next model, that would be awesome! Thank you New Balance, you hit a home run on this shoe!"
