Owned three pairs, what more can I say. Superb trainer for blasting out those tarmac miles. Continue reading...

After wearing through two pairs of New Balance 832's I thought the natural progression for me would be the 834's. Unfortunately they seemed to have tweaked too much. I found the ride as comfortable as usual but Continue reading...


Anybody run in either the New Balance 900 or 834, if so how do you find them ?

I use both and find them fantastic. I've tried all sorts and makes but keep coming back to them.

I really like me 900s. Have tried em up to half-marathon and no problems to report!

Hi Jinx,
What running are you doing? The 900 is amazing and 834 is nice. A secret here for you, fashion catalouge La Redoute is selling 834's very cheap look at their website,, if they have your size your quids in!!

I bought 834s for this year's London marathon. I need cushioned shoes (normally run in Asics Nimbus) and couldn't afford anything too lightweight as my marathon time on my feet would be around 4hours.

They're great. Very light, incredibly cushioned for such a light shoe, and with the N-lock system which takes the laces round the heel, the fit is very firm. In fact, it's like running in slippers. And they look great!

I love 'em!

HRH cant seem to find them on this site

Bikinibird do they have a nice low heel and are they flexible ?

Jinx - the heel is low, not low enough for some people but it is low and they are flexible.

Is that for both shoes Celtic

I would say that the 834 is more flexible but only slightly. the heals are the same size.

No worries

Forget NB: what about the "Adidas Tecstar Meteor High running shoes" (page 9 of mens sports shoes). Knee high black running shoes! Just right for Kinky Runners AC training night!

Damn none in stock :o(

Do I go for the 900 or the 834....oh and anybody want to buy Pegasus size 10 used twice.

The Pegasus wrecked me as I am a mid foot striker and high arches...too much of a heel, put my old NB's on and ran fine no probs but they are old.

I have just bought the 834 online :o)
