What a good value from STP. I always look for MADE IN USA products and these MADE IN USA running shoes are miles ahead of the foreign copies at a fraction of the price. Order 1/2 size larger than you normally wear as they run a little small. I purchaded six pair and put a pair in each of my travel/gym bags. I am a happy customer. Thanks STP

The shoe is great! I have a 19(Collage)and 20 (Work) year sons who are vary tough on everyday shoes. The shoes are comfterable with good support right out of the box. Baught a pair for my 20 year old about 10 months ago. They are still in good shape but looseing some support. I baught 2 moore pair 1 for each son and they both love them. Like most of the other reviews state buy them 1/2 size larger then you normaly ware. Another plus is they are made in the USA

I was going to use this in my physical education classroom. They were too narrow at size 10. I ordered a 101/2 and still too narrow. Usually I can wear new balance. However, these shoes were more narrow than other new balance. I had to send back.
