This shoe is at least 1/2 inch narrower than the other New Balance shoes I wear. Only New Balance, so I know the difference. Very disappointed. I must return because of fit.

I was very disappointed in the New Balance MO989 as it was much narrower than marked. I didn't even bother to try them on but instead compared them to my favorite shoes the ASICS GEL-Kahana® 6. This NB was almost an inch narrower than the Asics in toe box width. The NB M0989 did generally appear like the picture but the workmanship was disappointing for the cost of the shoe. I sent them back and received typical Zappos.com service. I'm thankful Zappos.com offers free return shipping. It makes shoe shopping less stressful. If only Zappos.com could encourage shoe manufacturers to standardize shoe widths and sizes I'd be even more satisfied.

They're made with the standard high New Balance level of quality - unfortunately they are not as wide as they should be. I ordered the 4E and I feel they're more like an average "wide" instead of the extra width of a EEEE shoe. I will probably get a different pair of New Balance to replace these, but I am disappointed that I couldn't keep them as I liked the style.

I have worn these shoes for about 3 weeks and I have decided I am not going to be able to wear them any longer. The first day of wearing my feet hurt quite a lot afterward. I chalked that up to new shoes and continued to wear them, loving the fact that they are water proof etc I wanted to be able to wear them to work where I come into contact with lots of water. They are the correct size, but no matter how loose the strings are the tops of my feet hurt and my feet slide forward, pushing the tops of my feet toward the tongue. Any more loose on the strings would be unsafe and wouldn't help the problem either. I'm not sure why this is happening, I have never had this problem with other shoes, or even other New Balance shoes for that matter, I have 5 pair of them (different style). I have narrow feet and high arches, this may not be a problem for others, but wanted to share.

I'd also recommend: Keen, Timberland, New Balance

The nicest pair of New Balance shoes I've ever owned. Zappos is the best place to order the NB shoes, the best and fastest. I will continue to order my foot ware what ever the brand from Zappos.

I'd also recommend: None other then NB, at this time
