I have been wearing these shoes for over 5 years. Well, not the same pair, but I believe these are by fifth. So they last awhile as well. I first invested in this shoe when I was having problems with planar fasciitis to provide better support. I immediately felt relieve and haven't had a problem since! They are very comfortable, every pair I've bought fits just like gloves on my feet. I highly recommend the New Balance 990!
Cushy/comfy but I miss the support of the 1540
Delivery on-time, as always. Comfy like a house slipper but does not provide the excellent Rollbar walking support of the 1540. NB--please resolve the supply chain issues with the 1540 and make them in the US again! FWE had excellent customer support in clarifying why the 1540s are not available.
Durable and comfortable shoe
Besides being a very supportive she the color provides a nice alternative to my clothing.
An extremely comfortable, stylist, and modern looking. This would make a excellent addition to your wardrobe.
I have shopped in store and online for years, the selection is always terrific
