    I HAVE THREE PAIRS OF THESE. I LOVE THE CUSHION AND WEAR THEM WITH MY ORTHOTICS. I TORE MY MENISCUS AND HAD SURGERY AND FIND THIS SHOE THE BEST FOR ME. I ALSO LOVE THE NEUTRAL COLOR CHOICES AND DO NOT LIKE OTHER SHOES OUT THERE THAT ARE TOO COLORFUL. THESE NEW BALANCE HAVE SUPERIOR SUPPORT AND I WOULD DEFINATELY RECOMMEND THEM.

      I am a nurse who is on my feet for 13 hours a day. This shoe is very comfortable and is a great shoe for someone with a wider foot. I tried on
      many pairs of shoes at Roadrunner and came back to the New Balance 990. I will be sad if they ever quit making this shoe. I just wish it came in some fun colors.

                I love this shoe. I have a large foot size 12 and I usually have to order up a size, but not with these shoes, the size 13 would have been to big. I know that us big feet girl club has trouble finding girl shoes that fit (don't let anyone tell you that a man's shoe in my size would fit...get real) I run up to 10 miles a week and have a large frame (5'11). Your whole foot will fit into these shoes and support you for running or club classes as they support that kind of workout too.

                  I have high maintenance feet. Unfortunately, I do with chronic plantar fasciitis. I tried my husband's shoes in the same version, and loved them. I love you with, the support, and I purchased the women's shoe for myself. Very happy I did so. They work great with my orthotics.

                    I'm an older runner (I'm slow and have bad knees so I can't run on pavement) and my feet are a mess from too many years of toe shoes. These shoes have made it possible for me to run in grass for decades. I adore these shoes.

                      I decided to try the 993 when another web site had an unbeatable deal. I'm so glad I did. As with most New Balances, I ordered a 1/2 size larger. I normally wear a motion control plus shoe but I've found that the 993 seems to act like a stability/motion control hybrid. I replaced the standard sock liner with Spenco Women's Total Support orthotics...so obviously the shoe has room for a thicker insert. There'e still plenty of toe wiggle room in the toe box. The heel is neither too tight not too loose(wearing either Thorlo socks or Asics quarter socks). I don't feel like I'm pronating in the 993. Feels very supportive to my ENTIRE foot. I like the classic look of the gray and navy blue suede. I hope that New Balance doesn't discontinue this model because in my opinion, it's a real winner.

                        I usually wear the New Balance 928 motion control+ but got a great deal on the New Balance 993 stability plus. I ordered a 1/2 up, which was a good idea. I replaced the original sneaker inserts with Spenco Total Support Women's Insoles (a GREAT orthotic) and these shoes now work GREAT for me. Plenty of wiggle room in the toe box even if I'm wearing my Throlo socks while the heel fits perfectly- neither too loose nor too tight. I think this is a wonderful shoe...and I now have 2 pair.Wish I could get them in an additional color to the gray.

                            I had to try this twice to get it right and when I did it was really right. I purchased the black pair first. I needed a stability shoe that really supported my foot as I wear a turf plate in the right shoe following a failed first metatarsal joint replacement. The black pair was not really a good fit. The shoe pinched on the bad foot and the quality was not what I expected. I decided to try in another color and chose the grey. What a shoe! My turf plate fits great. Tons of support. The leather and construction are much nicer and no pinching. I am ordering another grey pair. I wear these to work and walk in. All day comfort right our of the box.

                            I have hard to fit feet- narrow heel, need wide and higher toe box, need good arch support, need flexibility, cushioning and stability. The New Balance 990 meets 6 out of 7 of my requirements- it lost out re: arch support but there is a caveat- half orthotics fit easily into the shoe without changing its comfort. I can now walk my 3 miles a day without foot pain and my knee pain has
                            decreased,too. Glad I ordered a 1/2 size larger. I was so impressed with how comfortable these shoes are that I ordered a 2nd pair.

                              This shoe supports my elderly feet! And thus, my slightly unstable knees! And thus my old ballerina hips! And thus, my back.
                              I have loved these shoes for decades. Thank goodness they haven't changed them much. I've tried others and rued the day.

                                        I have been wearing New Balance for over 30 years. I do not feel comfortble running in any other shoe.

                                              Like the shoes but too big. Need to exchange for 1/2 size smaller, maybe even full size smaller.
