Rated 5 out of 5 by Wanderhope Comfortable, durable, and made in the USA
This is my fourth or fifth pair of NB 900-series shoes. They just never disappoint in any respect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beanshoppersince1957 I don't run but I walk fast.
I walk dogs as a part-time retirement business. I switched to these running shoes after several pair of the NB 84x Performance Walkers. These shoes are awesome right out of the box. I am now beginning wearing my third pair of 990's and hope they never 'improve' them. Well, actually, they could use stronger round laces - I replaced mine before ever leaving the house.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Areye New Balance 990s
Purchased as a result of a NYT magazine article recommending them. They're made-mostly-in the U.S. so American workers benefit from the purchase.
They have a wide footbed, solid construction are comfortable for walking. The sizing is good with the socks recommended by LLBean. Only negative is I prefer more arch support.

I have used this top of the line running shoe by New Balance over many years and it always performs well. I have a wide foot that most other brands can not fit satisfactorily.

Simply the best athletic shoes in the game. With the best return policy in the game. Helps with back problems daily. I don't recommend using them as running shoes, but they will be your go-to dailies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CDA80SGP50 Well fitting running shoes
Fits well; robust construction; owned a similar pair for years till they wore out; however, this new pair has rather flimsy looking shoelaces - suggest NB use more robust looking shoelaces;

Rated 5 out of 5 by GALDEN Ordered 1/2 size larger than my normal shoe size
Excellent fit and comfort. Expensive but worth it!

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.
