    "I have worn these NB for years whatever the model has been for over pronaters. Sizing issue last yr but just needed wide size. Tryed last yr. This yr I changed back to these bc different brand last yr shoe changed sizing so back to my go to NB. This years model shoes feel like the roll bars are right in left and left in right. I feel like I am being pushed inward? I will try with my orthotics though very different from the old similar NB shoe. May have to return and try another shoe. What happened?"

    Change from the old 1540

    "For years, I have bought the woman's 1540 because it had the Rollbar construction, lots of cushioning, lots of mesh and great stability; it was the only shoe that kept my plantar fasciitis away. I was actually stockpiling them until a NB rep said that I did not need to because the company would continue to make this shoe. Now this shoe has been replaced with the 1540v2. It purports to have the Rollbar construction but it is not nearly as well made as the 1540 and does not have nearly the cushioning. Unfortunately I may be forced to continue to buy them because there are not many Rollbar products with enough mesh for weather where I live."

    "I bought this shoe at a New Balance Store in Michigan, and LOVE it! I am 19 years old and have had more than 5 ingrown toenails removed due to having a wide forefoot(plus my dad wears a 4e). I bought the 8 in a 2e(I size at 7.5 to 8). The last time I wore a size 8 was when I was 11 because I could never find a shoe wide enough forefoot, so I would wear 8.5-9 D width. My previous shoe was a brooks addiction 11 size 8.5 2e and my toes were cramped pretty bad. Not a good choice to run in! I have only gotten to wear these on the tredmill 2xs over the past several weeks, but I am just amazed that I have ROOM in the toebox. I just wish the heel was a little narrower and that the cushioning was more like spongy molding to the foot. But I love them! This is the shoe for running if you cant find anything wide enough in the toebox! Also theyre kida cute!"
