My only complaint is that they are a little heavier than I would like, but maybe that is the price of excellent support.
Bye the way, forget all the noise about the shoes smelling like cat urine when the shoes get wet. This happened to me about five years ago and NB quickly replaced the shoes. I have had two pairs since with no problem. I can't believe how some of the reviewers continually cry about this issue. I suspect they have nothing else to do or they are delusional in thinking they are leading some sort of crusade.
Rating: 5/5 (excellent)
I've tried a wide variety of running shoes over the past 30 years, during which I contended with a variety of foot-related issues (plantar fasciitis, hammer toe, arthritis, etc.), and after being repeatedly referred to the New Balance 99x line by multiple different podiatrists, I eventually tried a pair, and I'm glad I did because they were far and away the best sneakers (for me anyway) that I'd ever owned, and I've been buying 991's, 992's and now 993's ever since.
* Above-average availability of extra wide sizes.
* Highly breathable uppers help limit/prevent athlete's foot.
* Excellent interior padding with recessed seams (read: fewer chafing points that might cause sores).
* Well cushioned and highly durable soles, with non-slip treads.
* Removable sole inserts make this shoe more orthotic friendly than most.
* Diabetic Friendly: All of the above combine to make this the #1 recommended sneaker for people with Diabetes.
* Made in USA.
* It's price point is above average, but its quality makes it worthwhile.
Bottom line: Personally, I think these may be the best all around running/walking shoes on the market. Highly recommended.
Note even with New Balance which is 1 of the last shoe companies producing in the US, the majority of their shoes are also made overseas and those ones are a substantially lower quality. But if you go to their website they make it easy to differentiate to find the ones made in the US. They have a nice classification of 3 main types: ones made 100% abroad, ones (partially) assembled in the US, and ones made mostly in the US (with a some materials from abroad). The jumps in quality between the 3 groups is huge. If you are looking for a great quality sneaker I very highly recommend New Balance. Just ensure you get the American made versions. Whether or not you are explicitly trying to buy Made in USA, the quality and the long term cost is a huge benefit of getting the Made in USA versions in this case. There's no reason to blindly accept buying garbage, when you can buy something better.
I find myself wearing the old 993's far more than my new ones, despite the older ones having lost substantial cushioning and support over time. The Heritage Collection 993's simply feel that different.
If anyone else has experienced this same drop in quality with the adoption of the Heritage Collection name, please reply.
