I was a bit surprised when New Balance discontinued the foam cushining 991 and replaced it with the gel cushioned 992. It took a bit of getting used to but I made the transition to 992s. With the 992s also came the option to get several different colors of 992s: the 991s always only came in grey.
I was elated to learn though that the company had again upgraded to 993s which includes a combination of foam and gel. I think they're lighter than 992s too and the feel on first putting on a pair of 993s is very similar to putting on a pair of 991s. They did keep the multiple color options of the 992 line so you can get these in black, grey, white.
Overall, I am extremely happy with this product.
Foremost on my loyalty is the commitment that the company has to local markets. The 993s are Made in the USA and in the back of each of these shoes you can see the prominent USA in bold against an American flag. They are a patriot's shoe and they are quite popular in the military. Unlike other shoe companies that use almost slave child labor to make shoes and then sell them at horrendous profits in America, New Balance provides good jobs in the US.Read more ›
As one seller described the shoe online:
"Classic New Balance Men's 993 Tie Running Shoes mean pure stability
Here's superior cushioning and enhanced stability for mid to moderate overpronators
If your feet tend to roll inward more than necessary when you run, this New Balance Walker can help correct your motion and ease fatigue. This classic design comes loaded with technological features that cushion, stabilize, support and comfort active feet."
I have worn these 990s for many years now and this model just seems as good if not better than its predecessors. The only reason I buy new ones is frankly from natural wear. And I don't mean wear that is obvious like frays or the sole is coming off. I mean MINOR wear on the tread (starting to affect ankle/foot alignment) and slight stretching of shoes fabric/leather (don't get quite as good support). What's is amazing is these shoes are built so well, that by the time I need a new pair for specific reason these shoes still look and feel great. So great I wear them for comfort for daily chores. I swear 1 year on this shoe is like 3-4 months on your average high end, Nike Airs.
Simply put I have found the best shoe ever for me. If you know or think you need greater stability, I encourage you try them on at a local seller.
PS. My feet, my knees and even my hips LOVE these shoes :)
