The 996 would have been my 4th pair of NB Classics. My 991, 992 and 993 were all 13EE and fit perfectly. It seems the 996 (also 13EE) runs narrow.

I usually wear Vans Slip-Ons, Adidas Campus Vulcs, Emericas, etc, but I ordered these shoes to switch things up a bit. The price is somewhat steep, but I think they were worth it. Although they are more of a casual, "retro" shoe than a modern cross-trainer/running shoe, they are much more comfortable for running than your average skate shoe, which should come as no surprise. I usually wear a 9.5, so I ordered these in a 9.5. They work, but I probably could've gone with a 9 for a slightly better fit - something you may want to consider. Bottom line: they're comfortable and they look really good with shorts.

Best shoe I ever wore - I have purchased at least a half dozen of these. And maybe got the world's last one packed safely away for a rainy day. I have tried many other versions and this is only one you can put and feel like you have been wearing it for months. So comfortable. The other thing I like is the fact it is a nice looking non-gaudy show that can be worn on may occasions without one feeling conspicuous. New Balance shot themselves in the foot when they discontinued this model. Should have been like Coke Classic.

I'd also recommend: Not a one. The 574 and 992 look similar but feel 100% different

The most comfortable running shoe ever made! I have 5 pairs of these shoes and would buy more as these shoes are comfortable from day one. I cannot understand when a manufacturer dumps a popular shoe and substitutes an inferior product at a higher price. Furthermore, I can wear these shoes besides for running and not feeling gaudy as some of the other ugly looking running shoes would make me feel. Bring back the 996 - please!

I'd also recommend: Not a one
