Any opinions on the difference b/w these shoes? I like the look of both of them and tried them on at the New Balance store and they both felt great in great in the store also. I was hoping to get some opinions from people who have used either or both shoes for some real input. Thanks.

Cannot tell you very much about the NB 781 on the practical side of wear. It looks on paper that it lacks a few of the support features and cushioning of the NB 780 but you are still paying the same price when the 780 was new!
However, maybe that means the old technologies never really worked (hehehehe) : Like the absorb in the forefoot and the forefoot and midfoot straps and the plastic shank at the midfoot???

Maybe i will give them a go....and then if they are better than the 780s. Then, i can have the answer to my questions on all these supposed benefits of stability straps and abzorb etc
