"I absolutely LOVED the 870 v3 and unfortunately have run out of places to purchase them so I'm trying out the 870 V4. So far, I'm disappointed with how large of a change there has been to the shoe line. There is more cushioning, which goes against the original purpose of the shoe that was meant to have reduced cushioning while offering support. The toe box is very wide and forces me to tie the shoe tighter, which doesn't feel great. Additionally, the heel in the back of the shoe is "taller" and puts more strain on my achillies. I understand all shoe companies have new versions of the same shoe, but I don't understand why the drastic change from V3 to V4. Not to mention, most shoe lines are up to V6 which shows that the V3's were very popular and well received so it begs the question, why fix what isn't broken? I love the NB brand (the 1500 V2 are amazing and I would train in them if my ankle could handle it) but I am thoroughly disappointed in the 870 V4"
