Hi I've had these trainers for several years and I still use them for the occasional running race - they are great!! They are so comfortable - but no-one seems to sell them anymore. Can anyone recommend me a pair of shoes that will directly replace these?

Thanks in advance for your help.

FYI: I emailed New Balance and they recommended these:

"Thanks for writing. The replacement for the MR749EST is our M770v3, with more cushioning and stability. Here is a link to view the M770v3:"

In the meantime I went to a local shop and bought M670 wide trainers. I've worn them for a 5k, and a 10k and they seem to do the job - although I'm tempted to get these recommended by NB too!

My suggestion was to be to ask NB what the replacement was but you have done that .... not sure what else you are asking?
