So far so good

By Thomas

Comments about Mens New Balance 990v4 Running Shoe:

I selected these because they are available in narrow widths and have generally been happy with NB in the past. Also, some other reviewers said they were good with orthotics for people with plantar fasciitis like me. So far they have been pretty comfortable and fit as expected. I tried them with and without arch supports and they have been pretty good. They provide a stiff and stable platform. I've only had them for a week or so but am optimistic so far.

Best version of the 990 yet!!

Comments about Mens New Balance 990v4 Running Shoe:

I have worn 4 versions of this shoe, and this is by far the most comfortable and best fitting for me. It reminds me of my all-time favorite New Balance, the old 878, only with more stability. I am a heavier guy, around 220, and this shoe works great for my needs. Excellent shoe and made in the U.S.A.!

Comments about Mens New Balance 990v4 Running Shoe:

I have ankle issues that impact the way I walk, on the outside of may left foot. This in turn affects the way my shoes wear. I wore this shoes twice for 3 mile walks and they are already ruined. I have worn NB for years and thought these would last a lot longer.

Improved across all measures while staying true to fit.

Comments about Mens New Balance 990v4 Running Shoe:

The 990V4 is an improvement over the V3 in just about every area. They are more comfortable, have better (not more) cushioning, and, best of all, are more durable. I'm on my third pair of V4's and they last an average of 30% longer than my experience with the V3. I'm a "high mileage" walker averaging about 8 miles a day. Even though these are excellent shoes I still need to use a special sock liner. I use the Super Feet black insert with memory foam or the Pro Foot 2oz Miracle. Both work well as they conform to my problem feet. The best thing about the V4 is it is improved while maintaining the same fit. My experience with other brands has been negative as every update changes the fit in some way. The V4's while expensive are true to the original fit and are still the best for my money.

I use this shoe for walking. I walk 4-6 miles every other day. Great cushioning at the heel & not to tight around the toes. I bought a second pair just to wear for casual use.

    Comments about Mens New Balance 990v4 Running Shoe:

    I've been buying the 990 in its various forms for about 10 years. I have a narrow foot, and New Balance is the only brand I've tried that is narrow enough for me (I use the B width). There have been a few ups and downs over the years, but on the whole it's been pretty consistent, and it's the only one that I buy.

    Returning to the New Balance brand

    By Wade

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Mens New Balance 990v4 Running Shoe:

    I have been a runner for over fifty years. Consequently, my feet, legs, etc. have taken a beating. I was always a New Balance fan but a couple of years ago, tried other brands which advertised that they provided cushioning and support, both of which I sorely (no pun intended) need. Sorry...the others are good shoes, no question about it. But the best shoe for me in terms of protecting my feet with cushioning and support is New Balance. This version of the 990 is a great shoe. I'm happy to return to New Balance and don't plan to buy other brands ever again.

    Great product. Delivered in a very timely manner and before the estimated delivery date. I would buy this item again with no hesitation. I would recommend to my friends to buy from Road Runner, as well. The product was delivered in pristine condition. This type of service is why I come back to Road Runner whenever I need to shop for products online.

    Comments about Mens New Balance 990v4 Running Shoe:

    So far so good 2.5 weeks. I Noticed the compound is a little bit harder and the sole feels more stable compared to the V3. I've had the V3 and that wore out pretty fast. Tiny hot spot on the front of one toe nothing a little time won't fix. Hoping the threads hold better than the V3's.

      After 30+ years of running I've had to transition to walking due to a knee issue. The new version 4 of the NB 990's is comfortable & great support and based on past experience with 990's expect they'll last longer than many shoes I've worn in past.

          I have been running in a version of this shoe since 1984,New Balance continues to improve the shoe making it my continued choice for daily training runs. Upgrades include improved tongue, improved breathability and most important improved medial support. I did 5 miles this morning in these and feet, knees ,legs feel great. That is a big plus for 59 year old runner!

          I have run forty miles in these shoes and find the upgrades to be excellent improvements to an already great shoe. The tongue stays put, no longer sliding or slipping down. If there ever was bad smells from the shoes that has been repaired.But for me the biggest improvement is in the medial stability.I run slowly these days but I still run daily in these shoes.I have been running in NB 900's since 1983.
