Customer reviews for New Balance 1140

New Balance 1140

The New Balance 1140 updates the popular 817 running shoe with an innovative stability system to help prevent overpronation and support the large-framed runner. An ENCAP® platform supports a healthy gait with a firm foundation and greater height on the medial side, then a top layer of softer cushioning enhances comfort—plus an extra share for the lateral side discourages overpronation. A stylish synthetic and mesh upper adds reflectivity, while its welded construction eliminates seams to prevent chafing.

"I just got it 2 days ago. Look good. A bit too small. Hopefully after using a week it will be extended little bit.
In case you want to buy, recommend to buy 0.5 bigger than your size. And not recommend for anyone with wide heel.
"
Yes, I recommend this product.

"Each time I need to get new shoes, it seems like NB has changed models. Not really a big problem, but the new shoe I pick as a replacement seems to be worse than previous model. Realize choice and fit is a personal preference, but come on; if it works, don't fix it. Biggest gripe is the tongue, it goes to the outside on each shoe in this model. Never had problems before, tongue used to lie well, never shifted, no matter how long I wore the shoes during the day. Now it shifts during wearing, causing rubbing and irritation to the top of my foot."
No, I do not recommend this product.

"I ordered a 71/2 4E, that worked well with 1123s (my favorite), 1012s, and other NB models. The 1140 runs small and tight."
No, I do not recommend this product.
