Motion control is the ability that some running shoes have to control the inward rolling of the foot. Motion control footwear generally feature wide, rigid soles with firm midsoles that provide stability and limit severe overpronation.
New Balance M1540 1540s no more

Reviewer: Tom from Tucson, AZ
I've owned many pairs of New Balance over the years. I loved the last two pairs of 1123's, then New Balance in their brillant wisdom went to the 1540. I've owned these shoes for over a year. My toes touch the top and they are to narrow. After a year of trying to stretch them out I am finally trying to wear them with my orthotics, without much success. Currently out looking for a non-New Balance shoe. From what I've read many folks seemed happy with the 1123's, to bad New Balance couldn't stick with something that worked.

I had previously ran in 580's- could not buy them any more. I am 200lb runner an bought pair of 587's on 09-3-12- On a run yesterday the rubber sole on heel came off shoe. I contacted New Balance and they are sending me another pair. I am blown away by poor quality of this shoe. I am glad it did not happen in the half marathon in 3wks. Will try out other brands after race. I would have expected more from for a shoe made for a heavier runner!
