Rated 5 out of 5 by TeaForMe Good choice for me -
I bought these New Balance sneakers in mid-September, 2013 and I am happy with them. They provide good support and comfort and are light weight, too. I'm not a distance runner - just 1.5 - 2 miles every other day, but I think these shoes would serve me well if I ran longer distances. In short, I'm quite satisfied with my NB Running Shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2greatdanes Great Cushioning
These are very light in weight, so I wasn't sure how supportive they would be. The first time I put them on, I knew they'd be my favorite running shoes. They're very light, very supportive, and very cushioned. There's no break-in period with these shoes. I'm not a runner, but I walk fairly fast twice every day with my dogs, and I've found that running shoes are best. These are perfect, even on our dirt and gravel roads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LivingInTheNorthEast My First Running Shoes
I recently started running for the first time in my life and was just using my everyday walking/exercising New Balance shoes but knew I needed actual running shoes. I read the reviews for the 870V3, which were very good, so I ordered them. A half size bigger than my regular shoe size, of course. As soon as I put them on I knew they were going to be perfect. I went for a run the next day and they felt amazing! I only started running a month ago and have logged about 40 miles in these shoes and I don't have any complaints. They fit great right out of the box and on every run I've been on. I run on sidewalk, black top, and gravel. They have great support and are super light and airy. I am extremely happy with my first pair of running shoes!

Rated 2 out of 5 by gymqueen Great look, poor fit
I loved the way these shoes looked! I usually wear a 9.5, so I took the advice of other reviewers and ordered a 10. Very cute! But they were too big and not very comfortable. So, I ordered a 9.5 hoping that would be better. They were better but they were still very uncomfortable. I looked at other reviews and some people love them... I am an Elementary PE teacher and only wanted them for teaching... they were small in the toe box... squeezed my foot. It may be my feet? I wear many different brands but these do not work. But, as usual LLbean's return policy is awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marth comfortable right out of the box
I have been looking for a new pair of running shoes for a while. I tried all the locale fitness store and could not find the right shoe. Most stores were more interested in going for what color was hot right now. I found the shoe very comfortable right of the box, no breaking period was required. These shoes are light weight and breathable. I measure at a size 8, as per sizing information, I ordered a 8-1/2 and they are perfect fit.I run about 25 miles a week and would not hesitate at buying another pair.
