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 M1540 1540s no more
March 17, 2013
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.

Reviewer: L. M. from North Augusta, S.C.
First thing, I'm 72 years old & still trucking along. The 990V3 is like putting new rubber on a Cadillac. Looks good, feels good & rides like a dream. That's what the 990V3 feels like on my feet, If you seriously want real confort & stability this is the shoe for you. Don't waste your money on anything else.
