This is my fifth pair of NB 1400's. Obviously this is my shoe. I wear a 6.5 in sandals and a 7 in closed-toe shoes. My feet are on the narrow side but not technically narrow. The 7's in this model number are a snug fit, and I like them that way. I wear them without socks for a few weeks until the padding compacts a bit, then I wear socks. This is the first pair where the interior of the shoe was scratchy, especially the raw edges around the tongue. They've been uncomfortable as I've tried to wear them without socks. I checked my previous 1400's and they all have a finished edge to the tongue. I'd still recommend them if you have a slim foot and like a lightweight (but not barefoot style) running shoe. I just hope they fix the rough interior issue. This design is a runner's favorite and even though the price is on the "low side" for a premium running shoe, the price is still high enough to warrant better finishing.

Love this shoe. This is the second pair I have of this style. Just took this new pair on trip to Ireland - they were so comfortable walking streets in Ireland as well as somewhat rough and wet terrain in the countryside. First pair of this style I have is used when standing all day at sit-stand workstation in office setting. So very comfortable. Feet never get tired.

This is a good mid-range walking shoe. It's light, has a good balance of ventilation and padding, and grips surfaces well. The rubber soles are my favorite features because they provide surefootedness on smooth floor surfaces like hardwood, vinyl, and tile. The only caveat is for people who need a lot of arch support, because this shoe doesn't have it. I don't really need a whole lot of arch support so the MW659 works well for me. I even bought a spare pair of MW659s because I liked them a lot.
