    Default New Balance shoe users come in!

    i just got a NB 1060 men's shoe for running from queensway. acutally i got it some time ago but haven' used it till now cos was waiting to phase out my old shoe.

    anyway, when i used it, it was the most horrible running shoe i've ever used. it's supposed to be a cushioning shoe but it felt as though i was running barefoot! my knees and ankles ached after just 4 km.

    does anyone own the 1060? can you share your experience with the 1060 or NB shoes in general? i usually use saucony and mizuno and this is the first time i've tried NB.

    i paid top dollar for a top end shoe and i'm suspecting it's a fake.

    is it because the shoe does not fit ur feet contour?

    Maybe you need to season the shoe (ie wear it a few more times)?

    erm actually no. the 1060 is a neutral shoe. im a neutral - slight over pronator. it's quite obvious the cushioning is MIA

    I dunno what model of NB shoes i use but it's served me better than the overpriced nikes or even my other favourite, adidas.

    I use SAF NB shoes! Not too bad but the cushioning is bad initially. After a while, it gets better.

    my track and field coach recommended mizuno too cos of the soles. brands like nike/reebok/adidas have considerably thicker soles than mizuno

    Loved the SAF NB. New Balance has not bad cushioning if I remembered correctly.

    I have worn Addidas (Spirit of the Game), Nike (Air Max, Air Max 180, Air Stab, Air Structure, Air Pegesus (1988-1993), New Balance (990 and 885), Asics (Kayano (V-XI), 2050-2070) and finally... Mizuno (Wave Rider (7-9), Wave Creation (5 and 6) and Wave Nirvana 2) The best shoes I have, ever.

    I have learnt the lesson of not trying the shoes on the treadmill before paying for it. So now before I purchase any latest shoes for running, I will go to the Running Lab in Funan Digimall to try it out on the treadmill. And you will be surprise that some of the latest technology and most expensive running shoes may not be your cup of tea.

    yea i think i will switch back to mizuno. i find their wave cushioning to be da best saucony is also another good brand. i boycott all nike products. and i don't believe in adidas and reebok and fila (those uber commercialised brands) for genuine running shoes.

    season shoes? i thought running shoes have a lifespan of 500km only?
