Like colorado hiker has already pointed out, New Balance used to make great shoes - back in the 80's,90's and early 00's.
Over the last 35 years I have used over 30 pairs of running shoes and the last great shoe was the NB854 which could best be described as a part support/part motion control shoe. My last pair lasted over 500 miles. Since then the quality has deteriorated - partly an obsession with making lighter shoes (?) and partly the decision to move manufacture from UK/USA to China. I have got through a number of shoes since -NB860 v2/v3/v4 and NB1260 v2/v3 - and none have lasted more than 300 miles. As a consequence I have started using Brooks Adrenaline as my alternate shoe and they do appear better made and more supportive though mileage, whilst better, is not impressively better.

So to my review of the NB1340 v2. This is the closest I have come so far to replicating the NB854 with its plastic insert in the
medial post to provide a more supportive transition from heel to toe. As with all motion control shoes you have to sacrifice weight
as they can be quite heavy. OK if you are a heavy runner (180 lbs +) but if you are lighter like me (<150 lbs) then this is more
noticeable. What I have discovered though with the NB1340v2 is that the insole is over 3x the weight of all my other New Balance
insoles. So by swapping over I can reduce the shoe weight (for a size UK11) to below 400 gms - only 10 gms heavier than my
NB860 v4 - plus you get a free pair of plush insoles for your day-to-day shoes ! To early to assess longevity but I live in hope of something over 300 miles. I'll return to this review in a couple of months and update progress.
Finally a plea - please New Balance return to making the great shoes of yesteryear or I fear I may end up becoming a full time Brooks convert.

Excellent trainers and seem very sturdy and well made for long distance running.
My only gripe is that despite all of the various layers in the sole, they are quite firm and not as light and bouncy on the foot (over shorter distances at least!) than my existing NB 480v4's. I suspect these will last longer and give more ankle support over a good distance though!

Decision to make as to which ones to wrar for this years Great North Run!? #DOH :-/

Slightly tight fit, normally wear an 8 but even these at 8.5 are a touch narrow, comfortable & bright!
