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.

This is a great sneaker for multi-purpose use. Great for walking around in all weather. Wore these shoes in torrential rain during an Oregon Ducks football game, and stayed bone dry.

Great shoes for walking or working in inclement weather. Comfy, true to size and breathable plus they are 100% waterproof. Good grip on loose ground and quite classy styling and colors. The 4E extra wide width shoes are the first pair of sneakers that have ever fit properly. Love them.

Excellent fit and good support for walking. I have a narrow foot and sometimes a "Medium" or D width is a little wide -- even with some NB models I own. Like the design and color combo. Very comfortable with a mid weight sock from first use. Suggest ordering a "wide" if debating between M and W.

These shoes fit me like a glove BUT I'm wearing a 14 4E and my true size is 13.5 3E, so yes they run a tad small but I find with most cushioning shoes they do run a little smaller in size, my guess is from the extra cushioning. I got tired of trying to find "the perfect shoe" so now I get what is close that I like and I adjust by buying different insoles, sometimes thinner sometimes the shoe needs thicker. I bought the 689's fit great but zero cushioning so I put rubber insoles in them and now I love em, like wearing house slippers. Didn't like the little pin holes.

I am a fan of Brooks sneakers and walking shoes. I'm approaching 80 years so more walking now than running. The Brooks Addiction is more comfortable, but the New Balance MO989 has way better traction on slippery surfaces (no small matter at 80), it's way cheaper, and almost as comfortable. I bought 2 pair!

Look good and high quality but don't seem to be very comfortable. I was hoping after a break-in period they would be more comfortable. They don't seem to have much arch support so I may add some inserts.
