disappointed in updated version of 1123

21 out of 21 people found this review helpful.

1540 painfully pinched the side of my foot by the small toe. For many years, I have loved wearing 1123 all day due to flat arches. In order to rule out a mfg defect, I ordered another pair; it still pinched. Finally, I went to the retail store and bought a left over pair of 1123. Hope NB redesigns the 1540 before my new shoes wear out!

Bottom line:
NO, I would not recommend this to a friend

New balance 1540

very light weight shoe, I have a very wide foot and these shoes give enough width area... but, I feel like shoe is always pushing foot forward and cramping my toes. Wierdest feeling I ever felt. When you first put on it is awwwwwwwww great comfy. After a day of them off you can't wait to shed. Sorry NB.. not one of your better shoes.

Very uncomfortable

20 out of 20 people found this review helpful.

This shoe is very uncomfortable . Have worn the 1123 shoe for several years with no foot problems. This new shoe seems to be too narrow to accommodate my orthotics . I have been wearing these shoes for the last few days and my feet hurt so bad that I can not sleep at night. Will not buy this shoe again. Way too expensive. I would return, but have worn them.

Bottom line:
NO, I would not recommend this to a friend

Disappointed - Not as good as the 1123

20 out of 21 people found this review helpful.

New Balance has discontinued the 1123 and replaced it with this shoe. It is certainly a trade down from the 1123 and is much, MUCH heavier. Very unhappy and am hoping NB will come back out with the 1123. Otherwise I'll have to find a new shoe. :(

Bottom line:
NO, I would not recommend this to a friend
