There are several key changes that demonstrate the cost cutting in this shoe. First, the toe box has been significantly narrowed. My 9.5 4Es have noticeable wrinkling due to the leather being stretched and creased as I walk. This has happened after one month of use. Second, the previous version had ventilation holes on either side of the toe box. Now, there are only holes on the top. Part of the shoe by the ankle has had leather replaced with mesh. Lastly, it appears that the sole of the shoe has been slightly reduced. The result is that it looks a bit more like a normal sneaker but at the cost of stability. The shoe feels a lot more like my MW847.
Overall, not an improvement over the previous generation, but New Balance still has the nerve to price it the same.
If you are buying this shoe because u had used the MW928 and that was awesome, (like me), then pls do not make the same mistake I did. This MW928 V2 is nothing like MW928. I used this for 3 weeks now and every day I must free my feet and remove the shoes to ease the pain.
What is it with companies these days. They can't stick to a nice model. They feel the urge to come up with something new and it becomes a failure.
NEW BALANCE please bring back the old MW928
Main issue is the fit, it's way different than the old. The shoe has become more narrow. I ordered the same 6E, both this shoe as well as the previous version, and I can see a marked difference in the shoes both in length and width though I got 10.5 6E both times. The new one MW928 V2 is shorter and narrower than the prior MW928
TRY AND BUY.
*** editing my review after a couple of months of continuous use. The shoe never got any better. Or maybe it was wishful thinking on my part that the shoe would get better with wear.
Do yourself and your wallet a favor and try other products. ***
*** Jan 13, 2018 *** Finally after about 1.5 years of use (8 months of daily use, and remaining 7 months usage being shared with a new MW928V3 that I bought) this shoe has become ok. I am very heavy so I have to say that the construction of the shoe is solid though the fit and comfort was not there. ***
My last four were as follows, all purchased on Amazon:
927 – March 15, 2012
928 - December 2, 2013
928 – April 3, 2015
928V2 – August 15, 2016
I was hesitant to order the last pair, the 928V2, because of the reviews I read about how the shoe did not fit the same, and various other complaints, but I went and ordered them anyway because I trusted New Balance. I just made sure to order a wider size, based on the reviews, which seems to have proven wise.
I use my new shoes only occasionally, when I care about the way they look, and because I do not like the way they make my feet and legs feel. Recently however, I had to wear them for several days because I was having my older 928 pairs resoled. I do wear orthotic inserts and have done so for longer than the history above.
After wearing the 928V2 shoes for about 5 days, my left knee and lower back were quite painful and I visited my chiropractor. He was worried about my knee. However, when I got my old 928’s back and wore them for just two days, all my knee and back pain cleared up.
I don’t know what you did with V2, but they are not working for me, and I don’t know where to turn. I had assumed they were built using the same last as the old 928’s that worked so well for me.
I now will only wear them for short times, and hope to keep my last two pair of my old 928's in usable condition. Fortunately, I do have access to a good shoe repair place. When I again need new shoes, I don’t know what I will do, but I sure won’t order the V2 again.
