Best shoes I've owned

5

When I was a teenager, I always used to go with the name brands that were "cool" and every shoe I got hurt my arches. I gave up in my early 20's and just began purchasing the running shoes I could get at [...] for cheap since college students can't afford multiple pairs of sneakers that don't fit.This year, I decided to indulge myself and get something that was HOPEFULLY worth the money. With the fit guarantee, I figured there wasn't much to lose except for the price of return shipping. Until these shoes, I always had to "break in" my sneakers and deal with foot pain or blisters or what not. NOT WITH THESE. These were perfect right out of the box for the 4 miles I ran on the treadmill.I also have really unstable knees due to my ligament structure, and have dealt with recurring knee pain with past shoes. I've been using these shoes for 2 months now without any issue. I'm going to be ordering my second pair very soon just for a back up. Thank you Roadrunner Sports!

No Break-In Time!

Reading the reviews, I decided to give 'em a shot, as I had an upcoming marathon and was in need of a new pair -- fully aware of the risk I was taking.... Ran the San Diego marathon, virtually right out of the box, finishing it without a single blister! No break-in time needed! Shoes feel a half- to full-size too big, like the reviews mention, but perhaps that's for the better, as I didn't have black toenails at the end of the race, unlike after a previous marathon, two months prior, in a different pair of NB running shoes. Tied tightly, no sliding; feel snug on the sides and provide nice arch support for my average arch. Ran a 3.5 mile run before SD Marathon in hot, humid Houston weather; they felt uncomfortably warm wearing thick running socks. Wore same socks at SD marathon and the shoes felt great!

I've worn new balance for running,basketball,and all around training for years.I have always told my wife these shoes are the best because of their many width sizes,styles,and their good foot support.She asked me recently if i would find a good shoe for her to use at the gym ,since i seemed to be so fussy about good foot health. Long story short, SHE ABSOLUTELY LOVES THEM.SHE SAYS THEY ARE LIGHT ,COMFORTABLE AND VERY SUPPORTIVE WITH HER NARROW HEEL.She now knows why i chose new balance all these years for myself

Just what a soldier needs

5

As a soldier in the U.S. Army I average about 20-30miles a week in unit runs as well as running on my own. I never ran before I joined the Army but alas its a way of life for soldiers. I have had these New Balance 993 now for a few weeks and tried them out the day they arrived for a 5 mile run and loved them! They felt perfect and were lightweight and after a 5mile run it felt as if I'd been running in them for months. They are definately perfect for me. I recommend them to any moderate to avid runner.

runs big to me

Love this shoe so much -- just ordered another pair. However, I think it runs a little big. I normally get a size 7 running shoe which is about a full size bigger than my normal street shoes but in this shoe I am a size 6. I actually got a 6.5 to be safe but it's too big and my feet are swimming but it's a great looking shoe, comfortable and lightweight. I wear it mostly for walking and in the gym so not sure about it if you are running a lot of miles.....

Like a trusty old horse

5

As an older runner with concerns to balance the need for managing impact forces with a lightweight shoe, the New Balance 993 is 'always there' for me, like a trusty old horse. It works hard, provides reliable cushioning and delivers enjoyable workouts. And once it's time to put out to pasture from running, it continues to be a companionable walking shoe.

Best running shoe

5

I have been wearing some version of this running shoe for over 10 years. I buy a new pair once a year. I wear them everyday except in the snow. Best running shoe ever. I have flat, problem feet, and these are the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned.

Most comfortable shoe for a heavy runner

5

These running shoes are deep enough to accept orthotics. They are extremely comfortable and well made for both running and casual wear. They are heavier than many shoes probably not for light weights. You won't feel the road in these shoes.

Upgrade from 992

5

Love the new 993's. My husband gave them to me for Christmas as an upgrade to my 992's. True to size and fit. I think they may even be a little more comfortable than my 992's. Love my New B's!

Simply the Best

My favorite feature is the lifted backs of the sneaker. I havent seen any other shoe do that while still maintaining the integrity of being a "work out shoe". But when your 5'2, you appreciate little things like that.

Great shoe

5

With plantar fasciitis and a bad knee, the 992 was perfect and so is the 993. The 993 is lighter and I do feel that the cushioning is where they cut the weight. Still a good shoe. True to size. I will buy them again.

Great shoe, love the fit, retro vibe

I have been debating these shoes for the past year. I am a serious runner and wanted something to knock around in that was comfortable, but looked a little better than my running shoes. I have been really happy with these shoes, they are comfortable, look great with jeans/pants, wear well, etc. I could run in them if I had to, but that wasn't the purpose I intended them for. I just ordered a pair for my husband...we both love them.

LOVE this sneaker! Don't discontinue it.

great for women with big wide feet. comfy and a lot of cushion, feels like walking on air and i didn't even need to buy inserts! this is by far my favorite shoe! I have arthritis and it helps my knees, back and toes to wear these. Keep these shoes in stock! I sized up 1 whole size as you recommended and they are perfect!! Well worth the $

love these Nb993 went from 991 to the 993 and was a bit worried but these in my opinion are way better than the 991 and lighter too. I stand all day long and these keep my back and legs from hurting like they used to. Love them... did order 1/2 size up from my normal size and they fit great.

Surgery eliminated!

5

This shoe is so comfortable, I bought two pairs. I was told I needed surgery by a podiatrist but after getting these shoes, my 25 year foot problem is no longer a problem. I had bunions and was preparing to schedule surgery but my foot pain is gone, so the cost of these shoes is worth it.

This may sound crazy, but I use these as my workshoes when I do landscaping, which is basically lots of walking. These shoes are light and very comfortable. My feet are not sore anymore and my heel spurs that have bothered me for so long have all but disappeared!

I love the New Balance brand. They feel comfortable from the very first wearing and never need to be broken in. The shoelaces on this pair stay tied (the round gray shoelaces on previous styles had to be double-tied to prevent them from slipping untied)

I was hopeful this shoe would be similar to the 991. Wrong! There is no cushioning and it felt clunky. The 991 fit like a glove and the cushioning was great. I guess we 991 fans will have to keep waiting.

I'm disappointed. This is the replacement for the 810 and for some reason, the design does not seem to offer as much "cushion" particularly in the front of the foot. I miss the 810 model.
