Rated 5 out of 5 by jimmytbird The best shoe
I do not work for New Balance nor LL Bean this is the best shoe probably made in America in terms of an athletic shoe. Very sturdy, a little heavy, but not too heavy. I have used these shoes for over 10 years. I have had the 990, 991, 992 and 993. I foolishly looked at other shoes but quickly within a week came back. These are not cheap. But if you are looking for a quality shoe, durable, long lasting and comfortable to wear this is it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NOKD Sizing Issues
I'm a normal 9 1/2 (EE) in shoes. Based on some reviews I ordered a 10.
Wrong fit, too big.
Next I ordered my normal 9 1/2.
Wrong again, too big.
Now I'm going to order these shoes in a size 9.
That must be the right size.
The shoes themselves are 4 stars all the way, top notch and made in the USA. A genuine preppy icon.

I just recieved the New Balance sneakers and I wore them for the first time. Very comfortable and a great fit. I have very high insteps and it is very difficult for me to buy any shoes.I am glad I purchased them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tik82 As per the notice, they are VERY small.....
These were WAY too small....as per the notice...but despite trying to take that into account, the shoes had to go back.....WHY can't New Balance, a good shoe company, FIX this problem??? A waste of time and effort, and a hassle returning them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dawgboy Need extra lenth 1/2 size up
These are the same quality as they have been for years; however,
the size has changed. You should consider going up a half size to ensure proper fit.
Otherwise a great shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WalkingPaul The most comfortable shoes I have ever had
I don't do a lot of running, but I can move easily in any direction in these shoes. The support is the best I have had in an athletic shoe. I usually buy walking shoes, but wanted shoes I could use to increase my agility. I wear them everywhere, walking around and on the treadmill, and they are extremely comfortable and supportive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Malaca Money but well spent!
Shoes that are priced for royalty but if you value quality then New will seem like a Balance worth having. These are made in USA New Balance 990 running shoes that will fit and wear well. Walk or run, expensive but worth the money. The only drawback is the shoe tongue shifting during the day but probably to do with my foot anatomy and not shoe construction. If you have resources you will get a good resource for a vital part of your body and your day. Buy New Balance in the USA from L.L.Bean. Quality in every respect.
