Peter: I’ve had a long history with the 1400. I loved versions 1 and 2 but found them just about 3 miles short of a marathon shoe for me. v3 was great, 4 better and 5 was one of my favorite shoes ever. The 1400v5 led me through a couple of workouts comprising of 20 miles of distance with a 5k race in the middle and both the distance and the speed felt amazing! I was super excited to try this new, flashy version of the 1400-but also a little scared that NB would do something drastic.
Dave: Like Peter, I also go back into the record books with the 1400 from New Balance. Some of my best racing when the 1400 was first developed was done in this model. The 1400v6 does not disappoint. It’s a true speed demon, with outstanding grip and pop off the forefoot.
