    "I am a competitive collegiate distance runner and have been running a fleet of NB shoes for the past number of seasons. 890s have been my go to distance trainer since the V2's, and I have always loved their durability and lightweight cushioning. From the start I was not overly pleased with the v4. The weight shaving is fairly minimal and I found the shoe felt more clunky than previous models. Tongue was really thick and the feel was just less responsive. Durability was good overall, began ripping above the balls of the feet, but nothing too major given the mileage put on the shoe. Decent shoe but I would sooner recommend the V3's."

    "I am an avid 65 year old 5K runner and try and race once a month. I had been racing in a NB905 stabilty shoe. I wear orthotics and decided to try a neutral shoe. I noticed immediately that the 890V4 offered great cushioning and more response to each step. My training times were considerably faster. Ran a Thankgiving Day 5K turkey Trot and took 1st in age Division. Time was about 40 seconds faster than last years race."

    Too Tight in Toe Box!

    "I am a size 12 and a half and have a wide foot. So I usually order 13 Wide (2E) from NB. That's what I ordered this time around these sneakers were to tight in the toe box. Don't know if this pair was just poorly made as all the other reviews said these sneakers were awesome. Will have to send back and re order to see."
