I'm on my third pair of these in the past year (OK the dog got to one of them) Light weight even with all the support built in. I need 14's in extra wide and these fit great. Just right in length and no cramped around the toes. They wear well and Made right here in Maine, USA!

Rated 2 out of 5 by BethKS not for me
My fault is not w/ the shoe per se...I can't get sneakers in wide widths for women in most stores; so I thought I'd try these as I met another woman who suggested I try that tactic. While I have more room in the toe box, I find these sneakers are too heavy and clunky for me. I regret buying them now. I wanted these shoes to work, but I think I will have to find a store that carries New Balance in wide widths for women. A less heavy shoe. I have healthy feet otherwise. No orthopedic problems at all. Just a normal, wide foot but narrower heel. The average American woman wears an 8 W as I wear, so it's a mystery to me why dept. stores don't carry more wide shoes in stock. Everyone appreciates being able to try on a shoe to see if it's for them. I can't seem to do that any more. I've been reduced to a hunter-gatherer on the internet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by weezerguy Good quality, support and appearance.
The New Balance shoes appear to be a better buy than the crowd of other "sneakers" on the market. This model is one of the few actually made in the USA. Had a problem with toe cap coming loose, but LLBean took care of it 6 months after purchase and had good service, although there was confusion regarding an exchange rather than a return. Glad to know that it could have been a return after that long. I need orthotics and these work well with good side support in the shoe. Look forward to many yrs. of use.

Comfortable, good fit and support. The mesh upper makes them comfortable in warm weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JoyceD Great Shoes Even for a Walker!
I bought these running shoes for my husband. I had been looking for a suitable Christmas present for an obsessive walker and I came upon these New Balance shoes in a wide width (hard to find). My husband loves these shoes. He said they are the most comfortable shoes he owns. Granted, they are a bit pricey but for the comfort aspect, they are totally worth it. And I love the color - gray! I would recommend them to anyone looking for a comfort shoe. You don't have to be a runner to enjoy these shoes!

This is my fourth of fifth pair of this model I have purchased. Great shoe. Comfortable and provides a stable foundation for most activities. And "made in the USA"

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed999 longtime favorite disappoints
I've been wearing the NB 990 shoes since the mid '80's and have always been amazed at how light and comfortable they've been right out of the box. This was probably my 7th or 8th pair of these long lasting sneakers over the years and when it was time to replace them there was never a question of what model I would get. The quality has always been unsurpassed and the fact that it is made in the US was a big plus. The pair I recently received was a big disappointment. Right out of the box they were heavy and stiff. The previous models I've had were made with supple pigskin uppers, this was not. I'm sure the "suede" materiel used contributed to them being heavier and very stiff. Sadly I returned them and have a lot of work to do researching a replacement for a longtime favorite.

I have tried many running shoes over the years and these are the best ever! They have excellent support, are comfortable and work well on the road or off. I have have run injury free for many years since using this shoe!
