The soft ABZORB® foam midfoot delivers maximum on-trail cushioning.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by rueust from Georgia on Thursday, August 18, 2016These shoe are great shoes. Stay waterproof until wore in pretty good and the stitches loosen up. They take a beating before the stitches give out before the shoe does. I wear a 9- 9.5 but it takes a 10.5 to fit my foot. I was on my 2nd pair when I found they were discontinued. I just bought 2 more to put up until I need them. I wish NB would make another all leather waterproof walking shoe to replace these. All of there walking shoes are very comfortable but I want waterproof ones while I am bass fishing in my boat in case of rain.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Palindrome from Idaho on Sunday, August 7, 2016Nice shoes but run way small. I could barely get my size 11 1/2 foot into the size 12 shoe. Had to send them back.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Elmer Fudd from Wisconsin on Friday, July 29, 2016I wear a 10.5 street shoe. Ordered 11.5. Small in length. Sent back. Ordered a 12. Too short again. Foot box is way to fat. This is not a true New Balance shoe, or they've stop building quality shoes. This is my 2nd experience with NB not fitting well. Can't believe I'm the Lone Ranger on this, however I'll never buy a NB again unless I can try it on at a store. Have my doubts as to whether or not this is a true NB shoe, or a cheap knock off. Very disappointed.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Elmer Fudd from Wisconsin on Saturday, July 23, 2016I wear a 10.5 street shoe. Most athletic cut shoes, an 11. I ordered an 11.5 initially and the shoe was tight on the length. Exchanged for a size 12. Toes on both feet touched the front of the shoe. I tried them on and wore them in my house for few hours until my toes started to hurt from the abrasion, (YES, I wore the correct socks). Also, the toe-box is uber high. I don't anyone other than an ogre who may fit this, unless people are liking their feet to swim in their shoes. Back when, New Balance made a precision fitting shoe with a predictable result. Whoever screwed this up, good luck to you. I'll never order another NB again.
And evidently I never learn. This is the 2nd pair of NB I've ordered within the year with the exact problem. I thought the first time was just a fluke.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by CVNP Junkie from Northeastern Ohio on Friday, May 27, 2016A hiking shoe that easily doubles as a casual shoe. Nice roomy toe box. Needs no breaking in.
