Built for neutral runners looking to put some spring in their step, the New Balance 840v2 running shoe features maximum cushioning and flexibility. Assembled in the USA, the 840v2 features an ACTEVA® LITE midsole that's 24% lighter than standard midsole foam. It also has a wider toe box to accommodate a range of foot shapes and N2 cushioning technology for responsive comfort in a low-profile execution.
Very disappointing change from 883, but no other option

"The 883 was perfect for those with high, inflexible arches, wide toe box and narrow heels. Truly neutral, I found it to be the best of the 880 series, especially the fit and the true neutral sole. The 840 is a great disappointment, it is cut very low in the heel and wider in the heel than the old 880 series. I step out of it. The problem is that there is no other NB shoe, or any shoe out there, with a true SL2 last for neutral walkers or runners."
