Every 5 years, I buy a new pair of the top of the line new balance. The m2040 is by far the best shoe I have ever worn. It is light weight and the fit and performance is the best I have ever experienced. I used it on a 5 mile hike on very steep hills and it was 100% comfortable with no break in required. I was truly impressed.

Although new balance has always been good for me, these new made in America M2040s have not. In less than 2 months the soles have come completely detached in a few spots to the point where I can feel it when I walk. Unfortunately I can't recommend these shoes.

I was buying New Balance shoes from over two decades. I pick the highest number in New Balance for my tennis and running. I bought this shoe recently and is a great addition to my athletic pursuits. It is comfortable, great cushioning, support, fits true to size. Helps work out longer hours running or walking, etc. I would say buy this shoe if you love yourself and see yourself healthy soon.

Best shoes ever owned! My wive bought the 2040's for me for Fathers Day. When I saw the price tag, I was taken back, but from the second I slid my feet in these shoes, it fit my feet like a glove. After lacing them up, I could barely feel that I had shoes on my feet. Very light, comfortable and worth every penny. Also, I ran my first 8 miles in them and my feet felt great. Lots of support and cushioning. Great job NB...another fine home made product!

I often write reviews of contemporary Brazilian music (Amazon) and hotel experiences (Expedia). But I've never taken the time to write a clothing/footwear review. Until now! I'm wearing my New Balance M2040 shoes even as we speak. These are truly the most comfortable (and best-looking) shoes I have ever owned. I am a walker/hiker, not a runner, so I can't comment on the M2040's performance as a running shoe. Also, I've had these shoes for only a few weeks, so durability is to be determined. But, my goodness, traipsing around in the M2040s is like walking on air. Now! Are the New Balance M2040 shoes worth their lofty price? Me, I'm a confirmed New Balance guy, and I own M993 and M990v3 shoes. Those shoes are nice - but with the M2040, New Balance takes things to a whole new level. Really, this is a different animal. If you can afford them, buy them!
