I'm seeing a lot of complaints in Amazon customer reviews for this model shoe that the upper seems likely to tear with as little as 80 miles on them.
I received an email from JNBO with a click through link to get 15% off entire order when purchasing 2 pairs so you might want to check your email for that offer before purchasing.
My brother runs approx 10 miles/day and says the 1010s are one of his favorite shoes, but the uppers do tear apart far too quickly (I think he got 3 or 4 free replacements from FootLocker before they finally cut him off).
New Balance is coming out with the v2 version in July[runtramp.com] which is probably why there's been such a fire sale on these of late. Supposedly the new version will have an improved upper which could make it a great shoe.
Just realize if you buy the older model and put in a lot of miles that they'll likely not last you long before they begin to come apart...

Reason: Added link to v2 preview
I have the black and yellow ones. Really nice comfortable shoes. If you like the minimal
feel for dead lifting and such, these would be great. I know guys who dead lift in socks so these would be fine.
I have multiple pairs and they are great! FYI-They fit as true to size as Nike and Reebok
I strongly disagree. Nike fits true-to-size, but the shrinking of New Balance shoes leaves them about a half size too small. I normally buy several pairs of New Balance every year and have noticed them shrinking a lot in recent times. Even though I've never worn an 11.5 before in any brand, it's now what I'm wearing in New Balance shoes.
