Prior to now I've tried Asic Gels as well as Mizuno Wave shoes. The Mizuno provided great support around the heal and ankle, but I think the width was wrong as the side of my foot gradually broke down the side of the shoe which lead to discomfort and an overall feeling of less and less support.
This shoes, however, seem to be a perfect fit. I was sized at the New Balance store where they suggested 1) the width change, and 2) this shoe in particular because of the outside stability plate it provides. I've been running in them now for a little over a month and am really, really pleased with the difference in fit. Unless any problems arise in the next couple of months, I will have a hard time buying any other brand of shoe than New Balance.
My feet are not a pretty sight, and I always have a hard time finding comfortable shoes.
The 940 sole is light, but substantial and provides good support. Size 12EE fits me perfectly. The uppers are thin mesh, which allows my toes to stretch, air to circulate, and accommodates my oddly-shaped foot.
I have tried New Balance in the past (as they are one of the few manufacturers that makes many of their styles in wide sizes) and occasionally suffered from muscle spasms and other discomforts. I've never had a 940 before now, and I will likely never wear a different athletic shoe. I have had no spasms, cramps, discomfort, or any other issues with these in the last two weeks of wearing them. In fact, I'm about to buy a second pair so I can avoid wearing them daily and give them a chance to dry out (did I mention my feet sweat?).
I don't give out 5-star reviews. Until now. Seriously.
What should you know about these before buying them? They are reflective silver, white, grey, and blue. A bit over the top in my opinion - they have gathered more attention than I am used with my old shoes. The upper is a nice thin mesh, which does mean that you'll get soaked wearing these in the rain. The soles are substantial, and probably add about an inch of height.
I did not find these easily at brick-and-mortar stores, non did I find a better price than Amazon.
I have slowly been working back into running. Mind you, I'm 6'0 and 220 lbs., so I put a lot of pressure on my extremely flat feet. I've been running 3-5 miles every other day, and I still love these shoes. I actually ran 10.5 miles in them a couple days ago and they provided ample support.
One thing I will say is that the higher style numbers seem to be better made than the lower style numbers (M9xx is better than M5xx). The 4s and 5s don't seem to last very long but are relatively inexpensive. The 8s and 9s, and these shoes specifically, have held up well and provide good foot support. He's 15 and isn't exactly kind to shoes. These are a great combination of comfort, style, durability and price.
