Comments about Mens New Balance 990v4 Running Shoe:

After a lengthy search for a walking shoe that accommodates a full orthotic and fells comfortable with a truly substantial feel this is the shoe for me. The wear is superior in miles to the Brooks Dyad which changed in wear in the most recent version. I hope to never have to change. One aesthetic issue, the navy blue trim bleached badly from sun almost immediately after wearing, but this does not affect shoe performance. New Balance is aware of this issue.

Not up to New Balance's rep, at least for wide feet

By Christopher

from undisclosed

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Mens New Balance 990v4 Running Shoe:

I have wide feet, so I don't have a lot of choices in shoes. New Balance has long been known to make at least some shoes in widths, and while other companies have caught up to a degree, NB is still regarded highly in this area. After trying several others that are lighter in weight (including some from NB) I bought a pair of 990v4. Since this shoe is said to run true to size, I ordered 11-4e. Unlike many others, the 990 has decent width at the midsole, but while the 11 was long enough, the 4e crowded the 5th toe on each foot.

I tried 11-6e, and this is where I learned something interesting: size 11 in 4e & 6e width had the exact same sole. The 6e simply has more volume, so it was too loose for proper tying and *still* crowded my 5th toes.

A sales supervisor at my local store suggested 11.5-4e instead, as it provides more width. But while it is longer and *might* have a wider sole (I didn't have the 11 to compare it with) it still crowds my 5th toes. I asked about stretching at a couple of shoe repair shops, and they advised that it wouldn't work because of the mesh attached to the suede where I need extra room.

In an unrelated problem, the right shoe started squeaking after a week or so, and changing insoles didn't help, so the problem is in the sole. Shoes of this price and reputation should not squeak.

The folks at my local store (Costa Mesa, CA) were so courteous and patient while I tried several shoes and bought/returned a few, that I don't feel comfortable returning this pair. I'm still on the lookout for a shoe that fits me well (I'm hopeful for the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 18) but until then the 990 will do, if only in the short term.

I have shoes for walking, running and weight training. Consider me a shoe freak. If I had to choose one shoe that does it all it would be the 990v4 by New Balance. Running, athletic walking, weight training or casual with a pair of jeans, these are the best!

Comments about Mens New Balance 990v4 Running Shoe:

These are my walk around day to day shoes. This is my second pair. Gotta be fashionable so I have the grey ones and now these black ones. I wear a 14 4E so it's hard to get what you want and usually have to settle for "okay that's the one color in my size they carry" that's if they have a particular style in my size.....Well to the rescue is Road Runner Sports....and the Shoe Dog! Road Runner is the only store I can walk in an walk out with a pair of 14 4E's. So they have become my only shoe store for few years now. They they are awesome. Customer Service, ease of return when necessary etc. Well for the shoes....their the 2nd pair (different color) that should say it all. Provide great support and very comfortable.....New Balance always has good sizing available as well and of course we can't forget these are made in the good old USA!!! Buy them you won't regret it!

By Mark

Comments about Mens New Balance 990v4 Running Shoe:

This is actually a great shoe. One of the few made of leather. A great stability shoe that come in very wide widths. For a running shoe it is heavy, but can be used for everyday use. I remember having this shoe in the mid 1980's. I recommend it for people who need good support, especially if they are recovering from an injury.

Comments about Mens New Balance 990v4 Running Shoe:

Ive been wearing the 990 series new balance for the past 40 years. They are the only shoe that fits my AA width foot. They are very supportive and comfortable and wear a long time. I had to start walking vice running for the past 15 years because of knee and hip injuries but these shoes will last me for almost a year at walking 3 miles a day. It is nice that it comes in another color now besides battleship gray. I got the blue ones this time and really like the change.

Confusion regarding sizing of New Balance Shoes

By James

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens New Balance 990v4 Running Shoe:

I ordered these on recommendation from Road Runner Sports representative who told me these New Balance shoes run the same as ASCIS shoes in terms of sizing. They don't. I had to return the shoes the next day after they arrived. And I have been on the road and unable to order replacement shoes. The whole process got messy and confusing...starting to think on-line shoes not a good idea or at least not when you're changing brands! I wish ASCIS still made the darn Gel MC Plus and I would not have had this problem!!!!!
