    I was thrilled to be able to order a shoe in my size and width and favorite color. I was quickly disappointed as now the shoes are a month old and literally falling apart at the seams. The top is peeling away from the sole. I'll be lucky if they last even two months at the rate they're going. Between the shoes and shipping I spent a little over a hundred dollars and it was money I didn't really have to spare. Normally New Balance makes an outstanding product which is why I wear only them for my tennis shoes. I would recommend something a little sturdier than the Minimus from the New Balance line.

    These are great looking shoes. The problem is the tapering shoe box. If you have any toes that are as long or maybe longer than your big toe then the shoe won't fit

    I have been buying New Balance for twenty years and purchased this product one half size larger than I should have needed, just to be safe. They were too small. Partly, because the front toe curves inward as though I were pigeon toed. (and I'm not)

    I had just purchased a NB in a similar style and different color and was looking for a back-up pair.

    I was disappointed and am now stuck with a shoe that I cannot wear and do not know what I will do with them.

    Although, I love NB in the overall - I will not purchase New Balance on-line again

    The grey and pink pair I bought last year (NB Minimus 1010 trail running shoes, 10 AA) were too wide in the toe box, so looked pretty funny with the laces pulled tight. This pair, however, fits perfectly, and that's saying something because I have a super narrow foot. Maybe they're designed better or maybe it's because the old ones were made in Vietnam and the new ones were made in the USA, but whatever the reason, they are the most comfortable shoes I've ever had.

    it does run shorter in length, as mentioned in other reviews. I wear a 9.5 2A in running shoes. I'm exchanging this pair for a 10 2A. Other than the length, I have no other complaint. I do really like this shoe.

    Received the size 10 2A very promptly. It fits just fine. Shoe is lightweight and very comfortable.

    Yes they run a little small and yes you need to order a half size up but that doesn't factor into my review. Seriously, is every shoe in your closet the same size? If you were in a store wouldn't you try on several pairs before finding one that fits right?

    I can wear anywhere between a 10&12 and alway wide. I ordered the 11D. They were snug so I took off the socks and that was much better. I took them out for a walk and discovered they are, by far, the most comfortable sneaker I have ever owned. I love the feeling of wearing them without socks. There's no chafing around the ankles. The most important thing is that my feet don't hurt. All other sneakers I've had in the past hurt some part of my foot which would make me give up my exercise. I think I may have been buying sneakers that were too big. Maybe they're supposed to be snug.

    Another thing I noticed is that when I put them on they cause my feet to arch a little which feels really weird at first but no matter how far I walk my feet do not hurt.

    I walk on flat blacktop so don't know how they are on off road surfaces. They have excellent breathability, my feet don't sweat inside them.

    I love these shoes. Been walking in them every day for a month and my feet are very happy. I think everyone's feet are unique so not every shoe fits everyone the same. These work for me.

    Shoe does run SMALL. My regular is a 9 narrow shoe. I definately need a 9.5 which I have never had to do before. Trust me, go a little bigger. HOWEVER- if you plan on not wearing socks, then they fit true to size- at least for a narroe foot anyway. Thats ok though, its an amazing and worth it shoe. I do run barefoot mostly so I wear these without socks and their great. I would like to wear socks with these so I WILL order another pair 1/2 size larger. I wanted a lighter running shoe to wear in between barefoot now and then and these are exactly what I was hoping for. Usually when I put on running shoes instead of my barefoot vibrams- the other shoes feel heavy and wear me down. These are so very light. Simply amazing..

    These shoes were nice and fit as expected, but the women's 3090v2 ended up being more padded and comfortable than the 1010's, although these looked more stylish. These didn't look like they were made very sturdy, either. They had a lot of messily glued seams that made it seem as thought the inspector was on his lunch break from QC just as these rolled through. I don't think I would have bought them if I'd seen them in person first.
