The New Balance 1340 is an optimal control trainer designed with Stabilicore and T-Beam for maximum stability and N2 for the ultimate cushioning with the right level of support combined with a comfortable feel.
"I have purchased 3 pairs of this 1340 style within the last two years. The first for pure comfort and pronation support (lasted a year); the second in a larger size for use with orthotics, and now the third for use without orthotics. These are the only shoes that New Balance makes that have good pronation support and are not stiff along the center sole (which causes me more pain!) Please do not change this design!"
