For love of the run

Just over 40 miles in these shoes, and the longest run has been 10 miles. I typically wear a size 12, but I sized up a half size after trying on the Fresh Foam Zante v4. The Beacon marks my return to a "neutral" shoe rather than a stability shoe, and thus far the transition has been a pleasure. The shoe is forgettable in all the right ways. As in, it's very easy for me to forget that I'm wearing it. It's a very functional lightweight everyday trainer, with read more

Returning. First, newest 1080 and now this one. Narrow and heal slip. Lacking tongue cushion. New versions have fit that doesn't work for me, old versions much better

Best feel to a shoe I have had in a long time. Very smooth transition despite the minimal drop, great cushioning and I can barely believe they are so light. I just have one wish NB person reading this, can you come up with some nice bright colors for this model? The grey pair I have is so boring looking. And naming a color petrol? Not so great a choice in a world going electric. I'll be the first to buy a flashy looking pair.

This shoe was recommended to me by another runner so I gave it a try and loved it. I am 6'1' and 215 pounds and just love the cushioning that this shoe has out of the box. I was wearing a different NB shoe prior which was good, but this one is so much more cushioned. I have just bought my second pair and went a size up because I noticed that my second toe on my left foot rubs a bit and over a long run this can be annoying. I think the shoes are true to size, read more

So, I bought this shoe 8 months ago. Super comfortable, lightweight and very well cushioned. However, the right shoe started making a popping sound and shortly thereafter, the left one followed. Now, I don't wear them because it is just so annoying.

A fantastic combination of comfort, protection, and snap. As an aging (mid 50's) lifelong runner I've had to transition to ever more cushioned shoes to protect my many aches and pains, which usually meant heavier, bulkier, "deader" shoes. The Beacon is the first shoe I've found in years that leaves my legs and back feeling great after 10 miles but gives me the light, quick sensation I've been missing. Great shoe.

After several years of using the same pair of shoes for all types of runs (short, long, slow, fast, etc) I decided to pick up a pair of these for slower runs. Man, these things are comfortable! The knit upper fits like a sock, so comfortable and lightweight. I actually like these so much that I used them for a half marathon race last fall and ran a 1:39, only 2 minutes off my PR. I'm on my second pair now after getting 350 miles on my first pair. They fresh read more

Decent Shoe Terrible heel design
JoeLos Angeles

Really wanted to love this shoe as it's extremely light and comfortable. However, the heel design is very poor. There isn't enough cushion and hence cuts into your heel over time. Very uncomfortable for long runs and even walks. I wonder if all these positive reviews are paid for by New Balance as I have had others warn me about this. Will be returning this and the quest for the perfect shoe continues.

The Beacon came out of nowhere in 2018 but is definitely a contender for running shoe of the year. It has certainly captured the attention of many top running VLOGs and review websites. For, me it's a brilliant and simple combination of light weight, just right cushioning, and responsive pop. The fit is generous without being sloppy. This is a shoe that can fit itself into any rotation, as it's a unique shoe. I pull this for unstructured workout days when read more
