New Balance 1260 V2 - Women's

Stability and cushioning have been redefined in the New Balance 1260 V2 running shoe. This update sheds some weight while maintaining the original features that made the 1260 the ideal choice. The synthetic/mesh upper provides lightweight, breathable comfort and support, while the no-sew material application prevents chafing. The Stabilicore® system ensures a smooth transition from heel strike to toe-off, and the ABZORB® cushioning softens the ride and lessens shock. ACTEVA® Lite material in the midsole is lighter than standard foam and provides optimal resistance to compression. The blown-rubber outsole is extremely flexible and adds additional cushioning while providing traction for your run. Wt. 9.3 oz.

Great shoe! Very comfortable and lightweight. I have really high arches so I have a hard time finding shoes with adequate support but these are great.
Also regarding the color. In the pictures the majority color looked like a blue/purple but it's actually a strong purple color. The silver parts look like they might be reflective, (which if running or walking at night can be a plus) but they aren't, they're just gray plastic pieces on the shoes. I was a little thrown when I first received them but quickly got over it.
Pros: lightweight, runs true to size, good arch support, comfortable, good cushioning

This shoe hugs my foot, stays snug in that the shoe strings don't loosen up. There are no hot spots, and my bunions are not irritated by these shoes at all. The cushioning isn't spongy but it is definitely there because normally I get a blister from my heel pad pushing up on my instep. This shoe cradles my heel in a way that is preventing my usual blistering problem. I'd buy them again from East Bay.

I love the fit of New Balance running shoes. Buy them over and over. Narrow and well padded for my high mileage runs.

They are true to size, comfy, cozy, and supportive as well. I recently had foot surgery. It didn't bother the foot or irritate it at all. They absorb pressure well and make it very easy on my foot. These are well worth what I paid for them.
Pros: lightweight, durable, comfortable, good cushioning, breathable
