abunda_amazon_reviews Long-time runner, 20+ marathons and halfs. and have worn many brands and models of shoes. To be honest, in the past New Balance has not worked for me. The bigger trainers have been too bulky and stiff. The lightweight trainers such as Zante and Boracay felt firm and dead to me, along with having a toebox that was just too shallow. But after reading many positive reviews of this shoe, and finding a pair for a great price on Amazon, I thought I'd give them a try, I'm glad I did. The Beacon may not be quite firm or responsive enough for fast runners who need a track shoe or a 5K/10K flat, and I'm not sure it would be good on trails. But take it for a nice 6-8 miler on the roads with some tempo pace thrown in, and it's very enjoyable. Disappears on my feet. The cushioning is just enough for me. Keep in mind, if you're used to more supportive neutral lightweight shoes, such as Brooks Launch or Nike Pegasus, this may not be a distance shoe for you. The sole is composed of exposed foam, and doesn't seem super durable, but I really like the smooth, unobtrusive ride. I did size up .5 size and would recommend doing so if you like width and volume in the forefoot area and you have a low arch, as I do. The curved last is pretty noticeable but if you're a neutral runner, it shouldn't be deal breaker. The heel area is fairly narrow, which works for me, but may not work for everyone.

However, I run on a mix of gravel and dirt type trails as well as cement and asphault and I can feel every rock in this shoe. I think because the foam is exposed it doesn't have the rubber to stop you feeling rocks. I thought the sheer volume of cushion and stack height would help - but not so much. So while they are comfy as all get out and no blisters or hot spots - I don't like that I feel the rocks so much. No way for this to do trail unless it's sand or pure dirt. I also find that, after about 16 miles, my ankles hurt a bit. There is not a lot of support in this shoe - though it is not unstructured. Just know that going in.
