Thank you for your feedback.
I have worn NB shoes for years, usually the lower level models, and have been very pleased with the fit and ruggedness.
These fit great, are light weight, and have a classic look.
We ordered there, they came in a timely manner and they fit perfectly and comfortably.

    Though I am not a runner, I wanted to try a pair of these for casual walking and recreation because I have arthritis in my feet. I have worn NB shoes for years, usually the lower level models, and have been very pleased with the fit and ruggedness. These take it to the next level. I have wide feet and NB has a great range of widths compared to some other manufacturers. They are very light and well-cushioned. I really look forward to putting them on whenever I can. They are more expensive than what I normally get, but worth it. And - they are made in the USA!

    Absolutely the worst pair of New Balance I have owned. I have been wearing this same model for over 10 years and this new design is the worst I have owned. Usually I get two to three years out of a pair, these have only lasted 6 months,two of which I could see the deterioration happening daily. Whatever material is used inside the sole crumbles and then the sides of the heal and arch fail. Literally, there is a hollow space inside the heal and I can feel the sole collapsing as I walk. New Balance will not take them back if they are not in resellable condition.I read reviews about this but I still bought them, I had good luck with them in the past. For 150.00 I can buy any shoe and I will never buy New Balance again. It is hard for me to change but these are so bad I will find another brand. Shame on them for cheating loyal customers like this.

    I'm saddened that the first review I've chosen to write in ten years of Amazon purchases had to be a warning about a product I loved and have purchased yearly for decades.

    All the positives posted in other reviews about the amazing fit and comfort are true: but this shoe -- and some other New Balance models -- have a dark side: a powerful, repugnant smell that seems guaranteed to emerge after the shoe gets wet.

    For the past two years I've been battling with a mystery: my family and coworkers have complained unabashedly about the smell of cat urine coming from my New Balance 990's (and the 993's before this model). I could smell it, too, and it was so powerful that I had to leave the shoes in another part of the house. I had assumed, since I do have indoor cats, that they had somehow decided to use my shoes as a litter box. Strange behavior for female spayed cats, but OK -- what else could it be.

    I tried all manner of enzymatic cat urine cleaners and deodorants -- NOTHING worked. So I bought NEW shoes and vowed to keep them away from any place the cats could get to -- including never leaving them outside where outdoor cats might find them.

    Amazingly -- the smell came back! I finally figured that I must have gotten cat urine from neighborhood cats on them while watering the garden. I purchased ANOTHER new pair, and this time waterproofed them and avoided taking them out into my garden area.

    BUT -- the smell returned AGAIN! After trying the usual round of cat de-stinking chemicals, I was at a New Balance store and happen to ask about washing them. The experienced assistant manager GUESSED: "Oh, do they smell like cat urine?" I was STUNNED!

    I've had these shoes for around 2 1/2 months now. I was very pleased with the shoes at first. They are comfortable, and there was almost no break-in time. However they have started falling apart. I'm extremely disappointed in New Balance because I shelled out a little extra for a pair of "Made in USA" shoes. I was hoping that I would get a quality product, and in turn feel good about supporting american jobs. I was also looking to keep my money from funding the sweatshops many companies rely on for their products. My expectations were not met.

    I was wearing these shoes daily, however the sole has started separating from the shoe. It now catches occasionally when walking. I did not use these shoes in an extreme fashion. I am a service writer at a dealership and in a normal workday I might walk around a total of a mile or mile and a half. They are not used as a running shoe. There is no reason these shoes should have failed this soon.

    I previously had a pair of New Balance shoes (Not this style, but a cheaper one made in Taiwann or China, I can't remember for sure) that lasted nearly two years! What's wrong with this picture? I'm very sorry to say that I don't think I'll be purchasing another pair of New Balance shoes. I love the idea of american made shoes, but if the quality must suffer, it's not worth it to me.

    I am a long time user and advocate of new balance shoes. The 993 was the best trail running shoe ever made and lasted through years of hard use. However when it finally came time to replace them I had no choice but to get the 990 model that replaced them. It is the worse shoes I have ever owned. They literally fell apart in less than a year. I am so pissed about it I have complained numerous times to corporate and only gotten the response of "we'll check into it" They really screwed up with this shoe. The only reason they could have done this was cost cutting. I pay a lot of money for my shoes and am very very disappointed. Shame on you New Balance. I also notice a lot of models are now made over seas. Another cost cutting move. I am so sick of every thing coming down to the $. Nobody takes any pride in putting out a good quality product anymore.
