        I wear one pair for work and one for casual/workouts. The shoe is very durable. In my HVAC job I'm always in attics and crawl spaces. The shoe cleans up good in washing machine on gentle cycle. Be sure to take out the insole before washing.

          Comments about Mens New Balance 1080v4 Running Shoe:

          I wore the previous 1080 v3 and was blown away by how New Balance went from being clunky to cool and a lot lighter. The new 1080 v4 is just as comfortable, and my legs love it. I'm a big guy (6'1" 195) and this makes me feel like a gazelle.

            Comments about Mens New Balance 1080v4 Running Shoe:

            I use these shoes for walking as arthritis no longer allows me to run. The shoe is supportive, but runs a bit wide in the narrow width. I was hoping for a more durable shoe than the 890s I have been using and it probably is but it not as comfortable and cushy as the 890, and the fit isn't as good.

            I would probably recommend this shoe to someone who doesn't require a narrow shoe.

            Comments about Mens New Balance 1080v4 Running Shoe:

            Like so many of the latest New Balance shoes, the arch support is almost non-existent. I use Sole brand orthotics for a huge improvement. I am a heavy sweater and shoes run cool and drain well. For me, the extra firm outer heel gives me perfectly balanced foot support. These shoes do not wear out. I have worn NB for decades. I had to go to synthetics for running instead of the natural leather 998's which got soggy and heavy, a few years ago when I started running marathons in the heat. I tried all the popular ones. Got Planter Fasciitis from lack of arch support in most I tried. Now I have recovered and use firm orthotics in all my shoes. I love the 1080 V4's.

                I have always used Nike Vomero shoe, I still like them, but this New Balance was an added cushion shoe and I like them for running on pavement/roads since I have bad knees and need all the support I can get from the impact.

                            I walk every day, approx. 5 miles and this shoe fits and feels great. I have
                            gotten NB for a number of years, and I think this shoe has fit me the best of
                            all the other shoes I have tried.

                                This is a great shoe. Relatively light but still has plenty of cushioning and is very durable. I am 6'-3", 185 lbs. and the shoe holds up better than about any other shoe I've tried. I especially like it for my long runs.

                                  I run about 2 miles per day approx. 5 days pr week and and have been running for 35 years. This running shoe is one of the best I have ever purchased. First, I like the low profile so I don't feel like I'm always running downhill. The cushioning is superb. I run on concrete and I no longer feel shin or toe pain since using the 1080's. The toe box is also spacious which has been an issue with previous running shores. If I were to provide one criticism it would be the the back of the shoe above the heel is a bit low. I got used to it quickly but, at first, it made me feel like I could slip out of the back. Now I realize that perhaps my older running shoes might have been just a bit too high. I highly recommend the 1080's if you want great cushioning and a good amount of toe space, these are a good choice.

                                    I wish I would have started with New Balance long ago. After a back injury, I'm looking for a comfortable pair of shoes to ease back into running, needing cushioning +. I've gone through Nike, Adidas, and Asics, and for a variety of reasons, the fit wasn't right. These 1080's fit amazingly, and are up to the task of getting back into running. The first difference I felt was in the heel. It truly cups your heel, no slipping or sliding, no need to lace up too tight. The support is throughout the entire foot. I even feel a little ridge underneath the knuckle of your toes. I guess the sign of a good fitting and comfortable shoe is to not even know you have them on. These feel as good at the end of the day as they do when I put them on. I'm strongly considering getting a second pair to wear for everyday. Overall a great shoe.

                                      I play tennis a lot and this year decided to join half marathon and started running in January for April Marathon. Then I realized running is not easy as it seems. Started facing all different issues with foor\Arch and Knees. Roadrunner was very helpful to try different options. Tried 3 different shoes and one custom sole and I was still struggling with knee pain and foot problems.
                                      Finally I made selection of NB 1080V4 and my hunt is over now. My shoe size is 10 W with Neutral foot type. These shoes solved my all Knee paina nd foot\Arch problems. Now I am running 10 miles in single runn with know issues. Will highly recommend to give it a try.

                                        As a military officer, I run everyday and also do plyo-metrics. These shoes felt good during their first week of use. My only concern is their durability. Time will tell.

                                          Comments about Mens New Balance 1080v4 Running Shoe:

                                          After 6 years in Nike Vomero's (from the 4th to the 7th gen), I decided to try 5 new brands against each other to select a new shoe. I liked the Vomero's but wanted to see what else is out there. As a friend put it, you don't tend to see a lot of competitive runners at a race in Nike's. I generally run between 15-30 miles per week, though I ramp-up to marathon distance training about twice a year. I'm 6'1" and weigh 180. I was seeking a neutral plus shoe with good cushioning, but something that's lightweight and could offer performance. I tried the Mizuno Wave Creation 15, Saucony Triumph 11, ASICS Nimbus 15, Brooks Glycerin 11, and these NB1080v4. I ran 2 3-mile treadmill runs in each pair to get a general understanding of what I liked and disliked about the fit of each pair. I then did a long circuit run through my neighborhood where I ran about 1.3 miles in each shoe before changing to the next. I changed through the 5 pairs 2 times, so I ended with a very objective understanding of how each pair fit, felt on the road, and performed. This NB1080v4 was my winner. Fits perfectly with little movement in the toe, forefoot and heal. The cushioning was fabulous on hard frozen pavement. The styling is conservative compared with the others I tried, but that really shouldn't matter, should it? Not much of the tongue shoes - the left and right eyelets are very close together when laced. To the eye, it looks like it is an improper fit, but it feels fantastic and I have no complaints. For reference, the Saucony's were a very close #2. I chose the NB because the ride was just a little softer. The Brooks fit the best of this group, but the cushioning seemed poor. They felt like a minimalist shoe on the frozen pavement. The ASICS felt like slippers, but I didn't like the feel in the forefront and toe when running. Lastly, the Mizuno's fit the worst - performance was good, but the others I tested felt like a glove and the Mizuno's felt like a glove that needed to be broken-in to fit right. Laces on the Mizuno's were ridiculously long for some reason. Hope this information is helpful to you. If you're in a similar situation, I'd recommend pitting these NB1080v4 and the Saucony Triumph 11's against each-other and selecting a winner on your own. They are both great shoes that perform well and provide a comfortable ride.
