I ordered these as well as the Asics
Gel Kahana (which had a similar color combo, and I also know that NB and Asics
consistently fit my high arched/wide feet better than other brands
) and found these to be a better fit for my type of foot. Although the Kahana was super cushioned and added a little more height, after having them on in the house I found them to be a bit snug in the toe area. When I put these NB WT610s on, I immediately noticed how much more room the toe box had, yet they aren't as cushiony feeling as the Kahanas. I plan to use these to hike and run in the trails as well as working out in the gym
. I've done a lot of research, and glad that I found these great shoes and got the correct size right off the bat. I'm an 8.5 and sometimes wear a 9 for more toe room, but this shoe fits great in my normal size. I do miss all the cushioning of the Asics
Kahana, but these work great for me, so far. Great quick shipping and service from Zappos, as usual, too.
