16 user reviews of New Balance 1061 See all
I have very wide feet so for the last five years i have been running I have sworn by New Balance shoes in a 4E wide fitting. I supinate ie run on the outside edge of my foot so was advised by NB to use a cushioned shoe. So I started with 753's for a couple of years and then started buying 891's from the States.
Well recently I asked NB UK for advice on what to wear and they suggested 1062.
After only 2 miles on my first run in them my calf and achilies started to ache and get sore. Just thought this was a niggle after a very long run a few days earlier. Tried them again, still had the same problem. Went back and tried my old 891's, no problems at all.
Does anybody have any thoughts as to what has happened or any suggestions as for other cushioned shoes for very wide feet?
Thanks for your help.

I was in 753's and switched to the 1060 or 1061's (can't remember for sure). Almost instantly I got achilles pain and can't wear them. I'm now using 755's which have caused me no problems at all and I'm happy with them as a replacement for the 753. Shop around - I've had 2 pairs at £40 each (but they are ladies)

Oh sorry - didn't know about the bloke sizes. I think the 106? seemed more cushioned than my 753's so they may have been too soft for me. Not compared the cushioning of the 755 though so that could blow my theory out of the water!
Hope someone else can be of more use!
