    Perfect for indoor track season

    "I wear these for my relay races and jumping high hurdles. Great arch support, traction, breathability and lightweight. The laces that come with it are stretchy, which doesn't put pressure on the top of your foot while racing. However, mesh material and midsole does not look like it will stand up to much rough use."

    "I use these shoes for races and find them easy to get on, comfortable up to the marathon distance and long-lasting (I have about 200 miles on them currently). As things continue to get lighter, I'd love to see these evolve similarly and I'll admit that I'm sometimes tempted to swap in the Zante v2 instead."

    Greatest Shoe

    "This is my 2nd pair of 1500v2, both are in wide size. Best shoe ever, bought first pair based on great reviews and loved the shoe. I have tried other shoes between the 2 but keep coming back to this show as I always have my best days in it. Initially wanted to save it for racing with a few "getting to know you" runs in between but it is the only show I want to run in. When v3 comes out, I will own it first day, love it, love it, love it."

    Fantastic shoe

    - Danbury, CT

    "Great shoe, wonderful for a road flat for half/marathons. Can also be used as lightweight trainer with the medial arch support"

    Very Comfortable Shoe

    - minneapolis, Minnesota

    "The 1500v2 is the most comfortable running shoe I've ever worn. The tongue is fixed to the sides/bottom of the shoe which makes sliding your foot in feel like a slipper. I really like that aspect of the shoe. The only negative is the color scheme--not a huge florescent yellow fan. But the comfort and performance more than make up for it."

    1500v2 for the long run

    - New York, NY

    "I was looking for a racer for my half marathons and full marathons and found it in the 1500V2. Once I saw this sneaker winning Kona I had to try it. I am 6ft tall and 160lbs, not small comparable to most runners. I was concerned of the little support that the 1400 offered and was a bit hesitant. I have worn these shoes only in 3 races, 2 halves and Boston and have loved every step. You are not going to get the cushion that you would out of the Vazee or any of those Fresh Foam things, but they are light weight , snug, and offer enough padding/ support to get you through high mileage. I am excited to buy another pair when needed and to see how NB advances the tech in them."

    Just wish I could get these in New Zealand

    - Auckland, New Zealand

    "The V2 of the 1500 is fantastic. I ran a 90km road race in the V1 for a PR and a 50km in the V2 yesterday for 1st place. The only problem is that they are not available in a 2E size where I live in New Zealand as NB NZ does not and will not bring them."

    "I like these shoes a lot. They are light and comfortable. I only run about 1-1.5 miles but I really like them. My only complaint is the colors.....not my style to wear such loud shoes."

    Simply the best running shoes I've ever owned

    - Los Angeles, CA, USA

    "I've been active since high school - running in track and field, playing football and baseball, so I've owned my fair share of training shoes, sports cleats, and running shoes. I typically run shorter distances (10k and 5k) and sprints. The support in these shoes is terrific, the fit is great, and there is so much grip. On top of all that, it is so lightweight. I can't give enough compliments to this shoe, well done New Balance. These are amazing shoes, just keep making these and I'll keep buying them over and over."

    Excellent running shoes

    - Cold Spring NY

    "Light, comfortable, durable, good looking shoes that wear very well - run 24-30 miles / week / treadmill. Owned these shoes since Feb 2014. Some reasonable wear on the sole, upper looks great. Will convert these into walking shoes and get another pair in a few months."

    Great Product

    - Skaneateles, NY 13152, USA

    "Love the attached tongue to the sidewalls. Removes the folding tongue issue that has plagued every other pair of show I have owned. Well done NB"

    Excellent shoe!

    - Chicago, IL, USA

    "Tried to order a 2nd pair but they were out. Probably because they got press in Men's Health. Only issue was the top material above toes started peeling off after first use."
