The New Balance MR840 shoe is a neutral cushioning trainer for the biomechanically efficient flat-foot runner. This men's running shoe features a synthetic and mesh upper with a full-length EVA strobel board and an enhanced SL-2 last. ABZORB® FL midsole foam blends comfort and performance, while the ABZORB® insert offers cushioning and compression for the ultimate ride. The rubber outsole of the New Balance MR840 running shoe lends enhanced durability and traction.
As I get older, proper fitting shoes are a necessity for overall body comfort. I decided to try all the Shoe Finders I could google & I was surprised at how many definitions differed with each shoe finder. Eventually I found one that led to my NB 840WR. The clincher was the price in Shoes Online. I did find, though, that I needed a cushion insert to make the shoe most comfortable.
Built on the NB SL-2 last, especially lightweight, plenty of cushion. I can't believe ran on NB 1123s for years--now those feel unbearably heavy and stiff (now replaced by the 1540 I think). Makes me think all the motion control etc. is more marketing than an actual help. Am on my third pair of 840s after about 1000 miles, they always feel good. But one star off for the gaudy, ridiculous styling (especially the back side), unless that's your thing!
