Description

Neutral, lightweight, and sure to please a variety of fast runners.

Mile after mile, the New Balance Men's M8980V3 NBX Running Shoe will leave you wondering how New Balance fit all this cushioning into such a lightweight shoe. This is a trainer designed for speed and crafted without seams. Welded construction eliminates those nasty seam bulges that rub against your foot when you're crossing the threshold of a long run, and for some distance runners, that might be enough to never look at a sewed shoe again. Traditionally, a trainer of this nature would sport a high heel-toe-offset, but the M890 features just eight millimeters of heel-toe offset so you're encouraged to strike on your midfoot or forefoot while moving closer to a more natural foot movement. You should expect a certain level of balanced design and refinement from any shoe in its third season of existence, and this shoe delivers for runners of all levels.

  • This shoe offers a standard fit across the board: in the heel width, instep, toe box, and forefoot width
  • Synthetic uppers are lightweight, supportive, and quick-drying
  • Welded construction eliminates seams in the upper so you get the closest, most
  • comfortable fit without chafing against your foot
  • Mesh ventilation offers plenty of temperature control for hot days
  • Full-length ABZORB insert offers mild cushioning, and you can remove the insert if you prefer to get closer to the inside of your shoe
  • 8mm heel-toe offset encourages a more natural roll and foot strike through your midfoot and forefoot
  • RevLite midsole is 30% lighter than similar foam cushioning, and it provides excellent shock absorption that takes stress off your ankle and knee
  • Blown rubber outsole feels flexible and light so your foot can move freely

Nice shoes for running

  • Fit: True to size

These shoes are very comfortable, compare to the shoes that I was using before these one, these new balance shoes feel comfortable and you don't even feel the ground at all.

Ventilated, lightweight and comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

Loved them, could run small; I bought them 1 size bigger to feel more confortable when running but I feel they fit perfect as if it was the size I use

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I run an ave of 20miles per week on mostly bike paths and trails. I am extremely pleased with these. Light comfortable, and well ventilated.

Awesome Distance Runner!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I picked these up on the recommendation of a friend while training for my first half marathon. I had been using minimalist shoes (NB MT10 & MR10) prior to this, but was running into severe foot and knee pains on runs over about 4 miles. The 890v3 for the most part eliminated the foot and ankle pain (and what knee pain remains is due to poor form on my part). The bottom line is this is a great, feather-light shoe with cushion to let you run longer distances (5+ miles) without pain, but still a low enough heel/toe drop to allow for a fore-foot or neutral strike. It is so nice to be able to heel strike and roll forward on steep downhills without feeling the impact all through my bones.
I wear size 10 normally and size 10 890v3 with Injinji CoolMax Run socks and feel like they're right on for size... just make sure not to crank down the laces to allow your feet to swell.
Also, bonus points for these being made in USA.

Great Shoe!

  • Fit: True to size

I gave these as gift to my brother in law and he loves them. He said they felt great from the first time he put them on. No hot spots and great support. They are his around town shoes as well.

Even better than V2, now USA Made!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

I'm on my fifth pair of 890s and I don't see myself switching any time soon. I ran two pairs of the original and two pairs of the V2. They were each the best shoes I've ever run. The V3 improves on comfort and durability, and now they're made in America!
In the past I've run Nikes (narrow in the bridge), Asics ((not bad), Merrells (heavy), minimal runners (destroys my knees and ankles), but the traditional lightweight New Balance 890 is MY shoe.
This shoe is perfect for forefoot or mid foot running. But sometimes you've got to strike further back on your foot for running down hill, if you're in for a long run, or if you're just out walking the dog. The 890 gives you the flexibility to strike your foot where YOU want, and not where the shoe wants.
The shoe is insanely light, the outsole in the forefoot springs you forward and offers a responsive, supportive ride. Also the forefoot strikezone has been beefed up from previous models for longevity and compact support.
Sizing is on the small side. I wear size 10 in skate shoes, 10.5 in Nikes and Salomons and size 11 in New Balance--I tried the 10.5, too small. These are the only shoe I wear in size 11.
