I have been wearing this line of NB for years - this time it is so stiff that it stabs my ankle. Rats. It fits, but like wearing steal.

I'm very disappointed with this shoe. I bought the New Balance WW968 to wear on a walking trip to Ireland. I wanted a pair of light-weight, waterproof shoes. I purchased the shoes in December, 2012, wore them to get ready for the walk, and then wore them on our 112-mile, 10 day walk in May 2013. Although I was initially happy with the shoes, several serious problems with design and defect developed. Here are the basic problems: 1. The shoe has eyelets for the laces. Consequently, when it rains hard, or when you step in a puddle, even if the water does not go over the top of the shoe, it trickles through the eyelets. 2. Despite thoroughly breaking in the shoe, I blistered, largely because my feet were wet. (See above.) 3. Worst of all, I noticed on the penultimate day of the trip that the sole is separating from the shoe! Granted, we walked in some wet weather, and through mud. But the shoes were less than 6 months old, and had no more than 300 miles on them when this happened. These shoes are way too expensive to perform in such a shoddy manner.

I've loved New Balance in the past, but this shoe really is very stiff and not as comfortable as I'd hoped. I'm keeping it, but it's going to take some serious breaking in.

I work on concrete floors and outside on blacktop and gravel. These shoes give me the right amount of support. My sister works in a sports bar and they save her legs and feet.

I'd also recommend: aisics

I bought these shoes almost a year ago. They are beginning to show wear but I've been wearing them just about every day. Yeah, they're not exactly summer wear but when I'm out walking I need the support since fracturing a bone in the side of my foot. These have great support for your feet. Even my foot doctor was impressed.

This shoe fit very well and it is the perfect shoe for the terrain I hike. However, this particular shoe was poorly made, with sloppy cuts in the inside lining which dug into my feet (even with good, Smartwool socks on) and the tongue is so stiff on top it pushed into my ankle.

I use these as work shoes and I wear orthopedics. I first took the insole out and put in my orthopedics and at the end of the night my feet were sore. I added the insoles back in and added my orthopedics insoles and bam I love them. They are stiffer then they the 928 but I love that. My feet move less and flex less and don't feel so over worked. I have worked at out hospital for over 30 years on my feet all night and have learned now at my age less flexing is good for my feet. It has good shock absorbency and the forward foot rolls up some and also feels it has good grip in the toe area with cushion.
