"Runs narrow. Long break in period. Takes about 4 weeks. Nice and stable. The green is pretty. Dry fast when caught in the rain. The v3 is not a bad shoe for the price. NB can do better."
Yes, I recommend this product.

Great step up from an older version

PostedNovember 16, 2013

Used Product For: less than 2 weeks
Miles with Product: 6-10 miles
Avg Miles Per Week: 16-20 miles
Primary Activity: Running
"Felt very good right out of the box. Fit is perfect, just like their older brothers, the 860V2. Weight is not bad, but, at 200lbs, a shoe that is a little lighter or a little heavier is not going to make a huge difference.
Lacing is good, and fits well on the fit. The toebox feels roomy enough, and not tight.
First run was a 6 miler, on a mixture of pavement, concrete and trails. The shoes performed quite well. The 870's, which these replaced, felt flat, and not well cushioned. The 860v3 feels just right in both the stiffness and cushioning department.
Good start, expect good results as I continue with these. Will be taking these to Singapore for a month of work. Will run with them...more reports as time goes by.
Also..stats...I'm 5'7, weigh about 205lbs, and log between 15 to 20 miles per week. Finished a half marathon in my 860v2' for my first marathon now"

Excellent shoes

PostedNovember 3, 2013

Used Product For: less than 2 weeks
Primary Activity: Walking
"These are one of the best shoes I have ever worn. They have good stability and support. The arch support is a little on the low side which I prefer since I have low arches and don't like arch support poking me in the arch. The heel support is great, probably the best I have ever seen in any shoe. I don't run, I just use them for walking around. They were a little stiff at first but after about 3 days they became very comfortable and made my knees and my back feel a lot better which is more than I ever could have hoped for from a shoe. Highly recommended."
Yes, I recommend this product.
