Running is both a competition and a type of training for sports that have running or endurance components. As a sport, it is split into events divided by distance and sometimes includes permutations such as the obstacles in steeplechase and hurdles. Running races are contests to determine which of the competitors is able to run a certain distance in the shortest time. Today, competitive running events make up the core of the sport of athletics. Events are usually grouped into several classes, each requiring substantially different athletic strengths and involving different tactics, training methods, and types of competitors.
New Balance W1540 As close to Heaven on my feet...

Reviewer: Nurse Bonnie from Stamford, CT
I was born with widw, flat feet that overpronate, recessed kneecaps that lock backwards, and a spine with vertebrae that are prone to 'slipping'. As I do a lot of walking on job and at home, I need a light show with great support and more than adequate cushioning that is wide enough. This is that shoe.

Reviewer: Ally from Indiana New Balance is the only company that makes an athletic shoe in my size, 13 N, in a variety of styles and colors. I'm so happy with the navy color. I've never been unhappy with a pair of New Balance shoes.

I am dissatisfied with this pair of new balance shoes !!The quality is not as good as all the other new balance shoes I have purchased over the years .. They look like a spin off of the real thing .the no. on the heel is painted on to the shoe ,all other ones I have is embroidered on a small pc. of leather and inserted in the heel ....The leather upper is not the quality I am wanting in my shoes ...

New Balance W900XC Spike New tennis shoes

Reviewer: Lyn from Richardson, Texas
I am still getting used to the much lighter shoe - it almost feels like I am barefoot. I only wear them when I walk my dogs for 2 miles 3 days a week, so I do not feel that I have had time to make a fair evaluation of them.

New Balance W890v3 Comfortable Light Weight Trainer
March 05, 2013
Reviewer: Julie from Margate, FL
This shoe is extremely comfortable for a light weight trainer. It has just the right amount of cushion and support while still being lightweight. Just put them on and go! you'll love this shoe if you're looking for a neutral, light weight shoe that can handle speed work and long runs. Note: I usually order a half size larger for running shoes (vs. my regular shoe size), but with these shoes I had to order my regular shoe size. They seem to run a little large.
