New Balance 1290

Introducing the 1290, a performance runner featuring REVlite Technology and progressive styling. Designed in Boston and made in Maine, this lightweight trainer brings a new face to New Balance domestic manufacturing. Made in the USA never looked so good

Features:

  • Innovative REVlite midsole provides premium responsiveness and durability at a 30% lighter weight than other foams with comparable performance
  • Ortholite foam insert delivers odor resistance, long term comfort, and superior breathability.
  • ABZORB cushioning in the midfoot provides exceptional shock absorption
  • No-sew material application
  • Blown rubber outsole
  • Shoe Last: PL-1

Switch things up with the 1290, a neutral cushioning shoe from New Balance. These structured running shoes give that just-right level of support for neutral runners. With an 8 mm heel-to-toe offset, the 1290 provides a more natural ride. The midsole contains REVlite technology. This technology creates a midsole that is very responsive and lightweight. In fact, REVlite midsoles are 30 percent lighter in weight when compared to other midsole materials. Another feature of the 1290 is ABZORB cushioning in the midfoot meant to increase shock absorption. Now who's ready to make excellent happen?

Having the right fit is essential to performing your best, no matter what your activity. That's why New Balance offers the majority of their shoes in multiple widths, from narrow (2A) to extra-extra-wide (6E). New Balance is the only manufacturer to offer so many width options, ensuring you the best possible fit.

Men's Shoe Widths

What size are you?

  • In general, the regular Men's width is "D"; for Women, the regular width is "B".If the majority of shoes you own, or have purchased in the past, fit adequately, these are the widths you should select.
  • If the shoes you own tend to feel overly spacious in width, you should consider selecting a narrower width size. If the shoes you own tend to feel noticeably narrow or snug, then you should consider selecting a wider width size.
  • If your feet seem "between" sizes and you cannot decide which size to select, we suggest you choose the larger size. You can make adjustments for a better fit with socks, insoles, or a different lacing pattern.
  • Since feet always swell during the day, we encourage you to try shoes on later in the day when your feet are at their largest.

Sizing Tips:

  • With respect to feel, your heel should fit snug with no slipping; the midfoot of the shoe under your arch and over the top of your foot should be snug but not tight; and you should have enough room in the toe box to wiggle your toes.
  • People are more than twice as likely to buy a shoe that is too small than too big. Clues that your shoes are too small or narrow include - foot cramping or "falling asleep" while running or just after running or the formation of blisters and calluses between or on your toes.
  • New Balance shoes are made to fit directly out of the box. They do not need to be broken in.
  • Feet typically get bigger with age. We encourage you to have your feet measured every year.
  • Women's feet often become a half-size (or more) larger after pregnancy.
  • Your left and right feet may differ in length or width as much as a full size. Be sure to measure and try shoes on both feet, and always buy shoes to fit your larger foot.

New Balance earned their position as the leader in Total Fit™ by offering more fit combinations than any other footwear company. In addition to shoe length and width, they use a shoe last. A shoe last is a 360 degree model of the foot used to create each shoe's heel width, instep height, toe box width and toe box depth. Though it's not the primary factor, in conjunction with length and width, the shoe last helps you achieve the best possible fit.

      Once I broke these shoes in, they're above average. They are definitely eye catching in the turquoise color. I think I was expecting a little more cushioning, but for short distance running these shoes overall are above average. Great price as well!

      I've been running for over 30 years, and I haven't worn a better shoe. Light and comfortable still after 6 months of use at over 20 miles per week--and made in America.

    • An Outstanding Sneaker In Every Aspect

      This is buy far one of the best , running sneaker added to my 30 pair collection, from experience , not all brands make all their sneakers to our likes, and perfect fitting, they all make good and bad , but this one has it all, comfort, looks ,well built with lots of cushion in the right places, perfect for jogging/ cross training, they hang in with my Mizunos, Assics , Nike's and Reebok that cost twice as much.
