Motion Control. The 1540 provides maximum stability control for runners with severe pronation. The 1540 provides ultimate comfort and control to slow the rate of pronation for a smooth gait.

The 1540 for men is New Balance's top notch motion control shoe. The wide, straight platform that the 1540 provides, along with a ROLLBAR® on both the lateral and medial side, means that this shoe offers unrivaled support for low arches and severe over-pronators. But this shoe isn't just about support; New Balance didn't skimp on cushioning materials either, including ENCAP®, ABZORB® and Dupont™ Engage.

The New Balance 1540 is the replacement to the New Balance 1123.

Proudly made in the USA.

Upper: Mesh upper with synthetic overlays provide durability with support and ventilation. No sew material application for increased comfort. Padded air mesh tongue for maximum comfort and breathability. Padded heel collar provides step in comfort that lasts.

Midsole: ACTEVA midsole material is 12% lighter than standard midsole foam with DuPont™ Engage® for exceptional durability. ENCAP® is a core of soft cushioning EVA in the midsole with a tough polyurethane rim for increased support and durability. ABZORB® is New Balance's top of the line midsole foam. An amazing blend of comfort and performance with Dupont™ Engage® and isoprene rubber provides the ultimate ride. ROLLBAR® on the medial and lateral side is a TPU posting system to minimize rear foot movement that, when combined with our TS2® system achieves the ultimate in motion control. An enhanced SL-2 last is New Balance’s running/walking last with a narrow heel width, high instep height, deep toe box height and a wide forefoot width. Removable PU insole for increased cushioning and comfort. PU Strobel board.

    Comments about New Balance 1540 MC Men:

    the 1123 had the right amount of cushioning and was especially kind to my lower back. The 1540 is not. Since I've been using the shoe for the past two months my achy back has been keeping me up all night.

    Great high mileage shoe

    By Harley Joe

    from Houston Texas

    About Me Avid Athlete

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Comfortable
    • Cushions Impact
    • Pronation Control
    • Provides Good Stability
    • Stops Rolling Of Foot
    • Very Thick And Soft Sole

    Cons

    • Inside Lining Weak
    • Tongue Slips Sideways
    • Very Poor Inner Sole

    Best Uses

    • Walking

    Comments about New Balance 1540 MC Men:

    I walk about 80+ miles a month and have a tendency to roll foot to the outside so this shoe greatly helps prevent that. Great for high mileage walking, cons are that the interior lining around the heel area wears out first and breaks down with lining tearing and peeling up. Also the tongue on this shoe needs a better anchoring system as it continually slips off to one side. I wear out about 3 pair of these shoes a year and have worm this same shoe model and its prior model and incur the same problems with each. Finally the inner sole that comes with the shoe is terrible. First thing I do is replace it with a very good after market one, especially the New Balance brand for pronation which has great arch support and heel and toe box padding.

      Comments about New Balance 1540 MC Men:

      The poor rating comes from the fact that the sneakers came with a bad lace and after two emails I haven't heard anthing back...Nothing wrong with the actual shoe and the price and delivery were great...but the lack of response is certainly not a plus.

      Excellent shoes

      By Deardon

      from Oswego NY

      About Me Casual/ Recreational

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Comfortable
      • Good For Wide Feet
      • Nice High Toe Box Sl2

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Road Running

        Comments about New Balance 1540 MC Men:

        I have to buy New Balance for my 4E wide feet. These shoes are an improvement on the model they replace, so long as you buy half a size larger than the previous model. Nice high toe box with the SL2 last. I would prefer that the tongue was a bit longer, but it's not a deal breaker. These are the fourth pair I've owned. I run 6 miles every second day.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was very very prompt. I'm very happy.

        Excellent Shoe

        By Rayman

        from Torrance, CA

        About Me Casual/ Recreational

        Pros

        • Comfortable
        • Cushions Impact
        • Durable
        • Pronation Control

        Cons

        • Heavy

        Best Uses

        • Walking

        Comments about New Balance 1540 MC Men:

        This is my second pair of these shoes, and given the knee pain that I have from wearing regular sneakers, these shoes are awesome! I haven't found a pair from another vendor that can match these. The steel rollbar really helps maintain my foot position and prevents any knee pain.

        Service and delivery comments:

        My delivery was a day late in arriving. UPS handed it off to the local USPS and, perhaps caused the delay.

        • About New Balance
        New Balance has grown to be one of the largest manufacturers of running shoes and they've done this without expensive advertising campaigns. New Balance knows that there is no better press than positive word-of-mouth. New Balance began as an arch support company, but in 1960, they designed the first running shoe with a ripple sole and the first running shoe that came in varying widths. It didn't take long before New Balance running shoes were used by college track teams all over the country. Today, New Balance makes their shoes available in more widths than almost any other company and that means that there's a New Balance that can fit nearly any foot. Although they started by making running shoes, New Balance tennis shoes are an industry staple and are loved by recreational and serious players. New Balance also makes fine running and tennis apparel, as well as a variety of socks and other sporting accessories.
