Does anyone know anything about the NB 858? If it is the 857 replacement (the 857 has disappeared from the NB web-site) is it as good?

I'm due to replace my 857s soon and wonder if these should be my next shoe.

Any advice from you guys would be much appreciated.

Yes it is the replacement - am planning on getting some myself. I know this through my running shop man who told me to wait a few weeks for them when I went in with my 857s.

Supposed to be lighter, less clunky and a better midsole oojammy

Anyone know if its like the good old 854 ?

I run in 857s on some rough tracks and they could definitely do with more cushioning.

Why is this thread in bold?

I'm looking forward to trying this new shoe as I do find my 857s are very clunky. I hope they've gone back to something similar to the 854.

That said, they're mooted as "being lighter" but RW has the 858s as 2g heavier than the 857s!

Maybe lighter in colour ? ;-)

I'm fancying buying a pair of these. What's the general opinion? I've run in 857's with no problems other than they seem to take a bit of breaking in. I've fallen foul of buying upgraded models before and finding them totally unsuitable.

Sorry to bump. Just wondering if anyone can confirm how these compare to NB 857s and if they are a similar fit. I've been happy with my 857s and am considering grabbing a pair of 858s cheaply online. Any thoughts?
