Review: New Balance 1063

After my RUNNR FOOTWORX experience, I bought a pair of New Balance 1063. The product, according to Runner's World, has the best update in the neutral-cushioned category.

This product promises that "miles are no match for this shoe" as it was "built for runners seeking maximum cushioning and flexibility." See video below for more.

After 93 kilometers of easy, tempo, hills, and long runs, I find this shoe to be perfect for me. The ride was great and I no longer feel the slight pains in my knees and feet. The upper makes my feet cool and dry. I'ts toebox is roomy, very ideal for midfoot runners when landing and toe off. Reflectors are present in all sides of the shoe, a consideration when you're training at night time. It's N-Lock system "hugs" my feet.

Now, I have a very simple observation that affirms my decision in buying this pair. I remembered that I often get sprained even when I'm walking leisurely. And I also noticed in my leather shoes that I wear out the most the outer edge of the heels than any other part.

I have a tendency to supinate. Clearly, stability/motion control shoes are very wrong for me.

Seeing the crash pad of the NB1063 somehow tells me that it'll take care of my supination problems.

So how much do I love the NB1063? I bought another pair, this time the red variant!

How I wish the blue variant is also available in our country.

NB1063 is available in RUNNR, Bldg. B3, Bonifacio High Street, Taguig City, NCR.

the very reason why i bought this shoe is because of the cushioning factor. indeed, it REALLY is meant for long-distance running.

when i had my gait analysis at runnr last july, julius told me that i have the tendency to pronate (but very mildly), so the perfect shoe for me would be stability. however, due to my weight, which brings further pressure to my foot, the best one for me would be cushioning. hence, the reason why i got two - one for practice runs and one for actual races.

congrats bro, adik ka na rin. =P nice review!

I like the review Jet, nice work on this. Coming from a fellow NB habitue (I use light stab 848's),I am not surprised that you are quite happy with yours :)

hi carlo, for me, having 2 shoes of the same model will spare me from choosing which one to use at race day =) perhaps, the only factor will be the matching of the shoes with the singlet hahaha!

hi bryan, yep, i'm enjoying my 1063s very much =)

hi luis, thanks! i'm an nb convert hahaha =)
