Comments about Mens New Balance 990v3 Running Shoe:

Daily, training, walking, running/jogging on treadmil, etc. Love the look and feel on the bottom of my feet, however, on the right shoe, something happens with the tongue of the shoe and it really irritates the top of my right foot. This has never happened to me with any shoe before this.

I tried 40 running shoes. The 990 worked best with orthotics

By Norm

Cons

  • The 13 was too small and the 14 was too large.

Best Uses

    Comments about Mens New Balance 990v3 Running Shoe:

    I have very substantial orthotics to prevent pronation. The rubber pad on the forefoot is 5 mm thick. The heel and arch are rigid plastic covered by the same rubber. The heel is 20 mm thick and the arch is 48 mm. I tried every 4 and 5 level cushioned and stability shoe. In every case but one, the midsole gave so much that the orthotic's arch was driven into my foot and was uncomfortable. In the 990 v3 (for $$ reasons), the midsole is firm enough at all points so that the arch is not driven into my foot. Note that the 990 is one of the few shoes with a slip last. Consider it if you have a heavy duty orthotic.

    Last forever! Ran on my last pair for 10 months x 100 miles per month. Not as cushioned as other shoes I have owned, but they are still a very good value.

    Comments about Mens New Balance 990v3 Running Shoe:

    I've been a new balance fan/user for 25 years. Shoe fits and feels great. I can buy my known size year after year and they always fit. No guessing. Minor note, wish it looked like the old 998, but that is no big deal.

                  Several times a week my wife and I go walking, usually 3-5 miles at a time. These shoes are super comfortable, better than even my custom made orthotic inserts for my 51 year old feet. I just wish they lasted a bit longer. I get about 500 miles on a pair and the rubber is completely gone off the bottom and I'm into the foam!

                                  Hi! I purchased these shoes as an all purpose sneaker and they did not disappoint! Highly comfy, stylish and cushy. They do fit slightly snug, so .5 size up if you don't like the snug. I personally don't mind so I found them just right. Would definitely recommend to everyone.

                                  I have used the NB 990 series for many years in a row, and find that the shoes provide great stability as well as impact force reduction. They have been great for marathon training, but also for yard work and bumming around after they get "worn out" for running purposes.

                                    I wear 10.5 in Brooks Adrenaline Gts, bought same size in these and it works good. This shoe is heavier than the GTS but has more cushion and same amontb of stability. It is easier on my joints when I run in these but they are heavier. I like them and highly r commend feel as trainer for older runners. I am 56.

                                      I have been using New Balance shoes since 1980. The quality control of their only American made shoe now is the same as it was when I first started using New Balance. This is so rare in any running shoe. When I buy a New Balance 15 B shoe size I always get a 15 B. There is no guessing. Hats off to New Balance for at least keeping one of their shoes as a tribute to American shoe manufacturing.

                                        I work in these shoes 14hrs/day and don't get tired feet or sore ankles. Great for my morning walk too.

                                        What else can be said about the 990 that hasn't already been said? As a Clydesdale runner (205-210) these are the most durable and supportive shoe around. I have run numerous half marathons and just finished my first full marathon, with all training and races being in a 990.

                                        I typically get several hundred miles (300-400?) Out of each pair, and they are still in reasonably good shape after that for walking. I don't personally like them for extended walking, but they are great for hours of running. These shoes have kept me healthy and blister-free!
