New Balance Keeps Making Them Smaller!
on May 21, 2009
This shoe has got a very shallow toebox, considering it's supposed to have a deeper one for the SL-2 last. Perhaps everyone who is raving about this shoe, has simply ordered large. That just doesn't work for everyone, I'm afraid, because this shoe is small in the wrong places. I can actually feel my toes scraping the top of the shoe.
As far as width goes, the D was no wider than the average NB shoe. It was skimpy at the balls of the feet, as well. The problem is that New Balance has become completely undependable and inconsistent in its half-sizes. The problem is, if you're a half size and you size up, the difference is enormous.
A real disappointment.
