New Balance 1260v3 running shoes give your feet the lightweight and cushioned feel you want to start clocking more miles. A lower-to-the-ground profile provides greater control and a more natural feel as you run. Fresh colors on this updated version offer a faster look and style. Ideal for overpronators who seek enhanced stability.
Upper: Breathable air mesh with synthetic overlays deliver ventilated and flexible support. Plush padded tongue and heel collar enhance instep comfort. TPU welds help eliminate irritating seams.
Midsole: A T-beam lightweight flexible thermoplastic shank inlaid within the midsole provides extra side-to-side stability and arch support. N2 compressed cushioning foam allows for a lower-profile shoe and allows the foot to be closer to the ground. Stabilcore® medial support system provides an extremely smooth transition from heel strike to toe-off. ABZORB® cushioning in the midfoot provides exceptional shock absorption.
Outsole: Blown rubber provides cushioning and traction. NDurance rubber compound is used for maximum durability in high wear areas.
Runner's World Best Update
"The 1260 has slowly but steadily rounded into fine form. A year ago, we lauded the v2 for dropping an ounce of weight, but noted that it was still too firm. On this go-round, the 1260 has lost another ounce, but the cushioning is just right. Some of that weight savings likely comes from the use of a different material in the post—the dense wedge that supports your foot when it rolls inward. Another big improvement is in forefoot flexibility, due in part to rounded patches of rubber used on the outsole rather than the broad, square pieces found on the v2. The result worked well for our wear-testrs. 'As a heavier runner, I really appreciate supportive and stable shoes,' says Keith Carnes of East Lansing, Michigan. 'This shoe supported me well through my longer runs.'
