Anyway, that pair was worn out, so I ordered a new pair from Amazon. After wearing the new ones less than a month, the same thing happened! I couldn't believe it! The back part of the sole has separated from the bottom of the shoe. This creates a "flap", which besides being really annoying, is unsafe for walking and driving. By the time I got around to investigating, I'd exceeded the Amazon return window, so I called New Balance. The person I spoke with was very helpful. Bottom line, I shipped the shoes back to them a few days ago (I paid for shipping), and they will send me a new pair (they pay return shipping). The customer service person said that a month was really too short, the shoes should last longer. He said they usually tell people to think about replacements after 8 months of use. That seemed really short. I had expected these shoes (any shoes) to last at least a year.
What I found out over the years is that not all New Balance are the same. At least twice I bought New Balance on sale for $39.99 plus tax. However, they were cheap, weak and not thick enough. The New Balance sold here are excellent quality. The heel down to the toe is well padded and thick which is very supportive. Also if you bend the front of the shoe it's sturdy and hard to bend. If you try to bend the heel part it's virtually impossible. These sneakers are very well built. When a shoe can't be bent easily in the front or back it passes the strength test. This means it provides better protection for your feet. You just have to make sure you order the correct size for you.
I'm extremely happy with this purchase and I'll positively order them again at this price.
I'm most diappointed in New Balance here, they messed up what was once a quality product. I loved the original MX608 and believed in the New Balance Brand for quality and comfort as I need Wide fitting shoes. Now I have my doubts about New Balance quality. I'm now consdering other brands for wide-fitting athletic shoes. Five years ago this would not have been the case.
I'm now looking for a replacement shoe from another manufacturer. It's too bad New Balance decided to cheap out - I would have been willing to pay more for them to maintain previous quality levels.
