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;

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.

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.
