which is Nice because I'm in the heat of Guantanamo Bay
on March 8, 2015
I normally buy New Balance shoes, because I wear a 4E, am 220 pounds, and have flat feet. I have put only 10 miles on these shoes, and here is what I have so far. The shoe is lightweight and breathable, which is Nice because I'm in the heat of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The width is good, as New Balance always does. The back heel of the shoe is padded very thickly, which is nice, but makes me feel like my shoes need to be re-tied because of looseness after about a mile or so. The shoe could use a little more in the way of an arch support. It is very flat inside, and I had to put in some of the Dr. Scholls hard arch supports. The outsole is thick and very cushioned. There is a lot of give in the sole for a soft landing. The only downside is that you can feel rocks through the sole pretty easily. I'll keep wearing them and putting miles on them, but I wouldn't get again. New Balance is my favorite running shoe brand, but this isn't the best shoe I've had from them.
