Considering NB for the first time
I am a self-confessed disciple of the Brooks Range with Ghost 4 (for mileage and wearing a soft insole) and ST5 (as a semi-racer; it has some mild pronation support).
Being a low arched, mild overpronator with wide feet, I tend to consider neutrals and to put soft insoles in them.
Looking for a New Balance alternatives to Ghost and ST5. Any ideas? The labelling of NB shoes (numbers) tend to get me confused.
Thanks in advance!
Phone any of the factory shops in Cumbria (Shap and Flimby) the staff are very knowledgable - they will be able to tell you the equivilent NB to your current trainer, if if there are any sales on and they are happy to post out too.
Totally agree with Katesamar, I visited the NB shop at Flimby and not only got some cracking advice but came away with a pair of trainers that were £30 less than the best online price that I could find!! Well worth a look if you can.
Thanks for the feedback, can only go as far as London since I live overseas - NB apparently have the 860v2, 870v2, and 890v2 trainers as equivalents. Not sure of their quality, will have to try them out. Any ideas?
