Gear Review: New Balance 1063 Running Shoes

Whether you're a fan of New Balance sneakers or not, I think you're going to want to know about the latest update to their 1063 running shoe. The New Balance 1063 ($125) is considered a high mileage, technical running shoe. Although lightweight (9.5 oz. per shoe), this shoe offers the great cushioning and remains flexible. It's a neutral running shoe, designed for runners who have "normal arches."

Check out those laces. They're called SureLaces, and the wavy design ensures that your laces won't loosen while you run, so they offer added support to keep your sneaker snug around your foot. I also love the mesh material that covers the entire sneaker, offering breathability. Even on my longer runs, my feet never overheated, and the shock absorption protected my feet and knees. The shoe comes in orange or blue, and I know this 1063 is on the pricier side, but that's because it's top of its class when it comes to neutral sneakers. If you're serious about running, a more expensive sneaker really does feel different especially on those longer runs.

You can buy them directly from the New Balance website.
