I bought these shoe (or are they boots?) just prior to a trip out West. I had a pair of hiking boots I'd planned on wearing. Unfortunately, the hiking boots got misplaced, so I ended up wearing these for several, 3-5 mile day trips through the Sonoran Desert. They are very light, they broke in quickly with no blisters. The comfort was exactly what I've come to expect from New Balance (one of the rare major shoemakers that produce numerous models with wide sizes). Arch support was good, without being excessive or uncomfortable. I had to cross a wash at one point, and they proved they were effectively waterproof. Although with a relatively low top, you don't want to be wading in high water with them. They are tough enough for hiking though rocky scrabble and yet they were nice enough to go out to eat in. Comfort and looks. What more do you need? Well, after two weeks of constant wear, with about 30 miles of rough desert hiking, they still look new, with very little visible wear. They feel solid, as if they're built to last. I no trouble recommending them, and I'd certainly buy a new pair if these were lost.

Buy one full size up. The quality just not there. I bought a pair of the MW1569s after much research, deliberation and trying on other brands/ models of hiking boots. These boots run one full size too small. That means if you are normally a size 9½, you should order a size 10½. I normally wear a size 9½ 4E width. I ended up going with a size 10½ 4E. My experience with these shoes has been pleasurable - they fit really well with almost no breaking in required. These shoes are the most comfortable hiking boots that I have worn. My last hiking boot purchase was the New Balance Rainier MO1500. The quality of construction and materials is compromised over previous models from New Balance. My older New Balance Rainier MO1500 boots were rated "Best Backpacking Hiking Boot" by Backpacker Magazine in 2009. They were extremely well made, tough heavy duty upper and rugged Vibram soles. Mine still look amazingly rugged and clean. I do not expect this new pair of New Balance MW1569 boots to hold up as well as the MO1500s, not at all. The quality is just not there. I have so far legged about 20 miles with my MW1569s and already I am seeing the inside orange trim behind the ankle wearing down and discoloring. Not cool. Not what you would expect from such an expensive pair of boots. The soles of the MW1569 are clearly not as rugged as the Vibram soles of my older MO1500s. New Balance neglected to utilize the time-proven Vibram sole technology with the MO1569 boots. Shame. Now, I am not saying that these newer MW1569 boots do not stick to rocks and boulders. They are very sticky, much like the Vibram soles but these soles do not seem to have the rugged quality of Vibram soles. I am speaking from experience here. I strongly feel that these new MW1569 boots are going to last me about three seasons. That is how the (lack of) quality feels. It is just not like what New Balance used to be. To New Balance: Hey, I love you guys. Do not get me wrong, but I want to wear New Balance. The MW1569 boots are the first pair of hiking boots which do not cause any hot spots on my feet. For me, these boots come about as close as you can get to that walking on a cloud feeling. They sort of fit like a glove, Like they are supposed to. So, New Balance, why did you compromise on the construction of your newest flagship boots? This is your best effort? Please tell me these boots will last me more than three seasons. These boots have almost exactly what I needed. A pain-free and comfortable fit, sticky soles and waterproof GoreTex. They are also not very heavy, either. Good stuff. But, the lack of quality in the construction of these new boots leaves me with the feeling that these boots will not last like such an expensive pair of boots should. Come on New Balance, get this right next time around.

I really like the style of the boot, but the 13N is too short. I will try the 14N and report back. thanks Zappos for your great return policy!
