Top Reasons to Buy the Men’s New Balance® 1540v2

Never feel unstable again with the New Balance 1540v2. The symmetrical Rollbar technology in the midsole controls both lateral and medial movements, and is specifically designed to help stabilize athletes with overpronation problems.

A roomy toe box will delight runners with wide feet and help maintain a natural toe splay as you tackle your training regiment. Say goodbye to painful blisters; the soft no-sew material and generous cushion in the forefoot make for a plush running experience.

The 1540v2 may be eligible for Medicare reimbursement under HCPCS code A5500.

What People Are Saying About Men’s New Balance 1540v2

Men who run in the New Balance 1540v2 agree that the level of padding is perfect for athletes who need significant motion control features in their shoes. The Rollbar and Encap support systems prevent unnecessary inward and outward movements to help guide runners onto the correct strike path, whether you’re going on a leisurely stroll or a high-intensity sprint.

Several reviewers said the 1540v2 lasted for a long time without showing typical signs of wear and tear. One runner noted that even though he walked 8 miles a day, the shoes retained the same level of comfort as the first day he took them out of the box. So, if you need a highly durable shoe that will last, this is the perfect fit for you.

Men’s New Balance 1540v2 Updates

Motion control running shoes just got an upgrade: the wider platform of the New Balance 1540v2 gives athletes greater stability with a slightly larger footprint than the prior version. The sleeker design also ramps up the overall style while still accommodating a variety of orthopedic needs. Some of the improved aesthetics stem from the seamless toe box which does away with bulky overlapping materials.

Size and Fit of the Men’s New Balance 1540v2

General Size and Fit

The 1540v2 features a 10mm heel-to-toe drop, a wide forefoot, and narrow heel area to maximize the stability of all athletes. For the most comfortable fit, go half a size up from your true shoe size. The 1540v2 is available in five widths: narrow, normal, wide, extra wide, and XX-wide.


The unique no-sew mesh upper of the 1540v2 reduces irritation and allows for proper ventilation while maintaining an exceptionally soft feel across the top of the foot. Never worry about overly tight laces again with a generously padded tongue that provides a supportive and snug fit. A PU insole also adds an extra level of comfort as you slip on a pair and get ready to tackle your training.


Combining the power of ABZORB, ENCAP, and ACTEVA LITE foam cushions, the 1540v2 protects the entire foot from harsh impacts and offer a high level of arch support. The ACTEVA LITE foam, which is 12% lighter than standard EVA foam, lightens your load to ensure you reach top speeds during your runs.


Sturdy NDurance rubber in the outsole sets the 1540v2 apart from the competition with its maximum traction and stability that are perfect for all road conditions. Dual tread designs tightly grip the pavement to prevent dangerous sliding so you stay injury-free for the duration of your run.
