These are very good shoes, which are the right shape to keep from squeezing my toes. I have bought this model of shoe for at least 10 years now, and it's literally the only shoe I wear except for when I have to dress up (which is rare, thankfully).
This is the second pair I bought for my daughter. Her podiatrist recommends this shoe for her feet.
My New Balance shoes are perfect. They are comfortable, made in USA, well-made, and very pretty.
Well Stocked and competitive pricing
Was looking for a pair of running shoes that I was unable to find anywhere else online. I was able to locate them here. Shoes were shipped very quick and arrived on time. I will definitely buy from this site again!
Very good shoes
Over the years I have bought three pairs of the Women's New Balance W990BK5 Running Shoes, which are the only casual shoes I wear. They are not only well made and look good, but they are the only running shoes I've found that are wide enough for my feet. I even bought a pair in black to be a little bit more "dressy" for my office casual wardrobe.
