Thank you for your feedback.
This is a great shoe, perfect fit and best of all a great price.
They fit great and are comfortable right out of the box.
I'm not a runner or anything- this was just a normal level of activity, walking maybe a mile per day total.

    I still remember the first time I slipped on a pair of 991s, it felt like putting on a pair of socks - fantastic. That was a couple of decades ago and I have not purchased a different brand or style of running shoe since then.

    I was a bit surprised when New Balance discontinued the foam cushining 991 and replaced it with the gel cushioned 992. It took a bit of getting used to but I made the transition to 992s. With the 992s also came the option to get several different colors of 992s: the 991s always only came in grey.

    I was elated to learn though that the company had again upgraded to 993s which includes a combination of foam and gel. I think they're lighter than 992s too and the feel on first putting on a pair of 993s is very similar to putting on a pair of 991s. They did keep the multiple color options of the 992 line so you can get these in black, grey, white.

    Overall, I am extremely happy with this product.

    Foremost on my loyalty is the commitment that the company has to local markets. The 993s are Made in the USA and in the back of each of these shoes you can see the prominent USA in bold against an American flag. They are a patriot's shoe and they are quite popular in the military. Unlike other shoe companies that use almost slave child labor to make shoes and then sell them at horrendous profits in America, New Balance provides good jobs in the US.

    First off these and all NB (I think) offer different width sizes so you can actually get the right fit. In addition the 992s (this model's predecessor) is designed for runners with a slight pronate which I have. Stability is what this shoe does and does super well for me. I didn't find that specification on NBs site for this shoe like the 992s, but it seems online sellers are still saying so, and I have no reason to believe my 993s have been changed either.

    As one seller described the shoe online:

    "Classic New Balance Men's 993 Tie Running Shoes mean pure stability
    Here's superior cushioning and enhanced stability for mid to moderate overpronators
    If your feet tend to roll inward more than necessary when you run, this New Balance Walker can help correct your motion and ease fatigue. This classic design comes loaded with technological features that cushion, stabilize, support and comfort active feet."

    I have worn these 990s for many years now and this model just seems as good if not better than its predecessors. The only reason I buy new ones is frankly from natural wear. And I don't mean wear that is obvious like frays or the sole is coming off. I mean MINOR wear on the tread (starting to affect ankle/foot alignment) and slight stretching of shoes fabric/leather (don't get quite as good support). What's is amazing is these shoes are built so well, that by the time I need a new pair for specific reason these shoes still look and feel great. So great I wear them for comfort for daily chores. I swear 1 year on this shoe is like 3-4 months on your average high end, Nike Airs.

    Simply put I have found the best shoe ever for me. If you know or think you need greater stability, I encourage you try them on at a local seller.

    PS. My feet, my knees and even my hips LOVE these shoes :)

    These shoes are extremly comfortable and the size was right on target. This is the third pair of running shoes I have purchased from New Balance and plan on continued purchasing of thier products. Overall these shoes are very comfortable and do not rub and part of my feet.

    The New Balance 993 is one of the most comfortable shoes I have tried in several years of Running..I do all my running on the treadmill and only weigh 165 now..But it is murder on your legs if you have the wrong shoe...This shoe combines comfort and stability, plus it looks pretty good as a casual shoe just to wear out or if you are on your feet a lot...

    I am a serious runner and by that I mean I may be running 35 to 40 plus miles a week on the tread..These shoes are really a trainer..If doing my weekly routine of 5 plus miles a day I will use the 993s due to their shock absorbtion...

    But the reason this gets 4 stars instead of 5 is these are not a performance shoe...The big drawback here is weight...The shoes are heavier than most..So if you are looking at speed training or overall 5k, 10k best time this is not the shoe I wear..Would wear lighter more performance based shoe like the Asic GT 2030, 40, 50 line...But while training for that or daily running I use the 993s..Plus when you got to a lighter shoe for performance that is a plus..

    And the other reason I rate 4 stars is durability..These shoes will last me about 300 miles and they are done..Once leg pain, shin splints return I usually buy a new pair..So roughly 300 miles or so and the in soles are shot..Personally I like the black the best also..The grey doesn't hold up very well cosmetic wise..

    So good training shoe, good comfort..If they were slightly lighter and less cumbersome and more durable I would rate a 5...And they get kinda toasty as well..They are not real breathable mesh...

    Well I am updating this review today based on the last pair I received..They did pretty poorly for me..Were on sale here for around 80 bucks..
