    Great shoes - third pair I've purchased in a row!

    While it takes a couple runs / walking around the block to break in for me, they last forever and are totally worth the price!

    By Robert

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Mens New Balance 763 Running Shoe:

    Wow, what can I say? I'm just not feeling this shoe! The worst experience I have ever had with a running shoe. Usually I'd have to go to K mart to get my feet to hurt this bad. The ridiculously high arch and the overwhelmingly suffocating high sides ensure that your foot will only go where the shoe wants you to. It feels like I'm running in a pair of those 80's style moon boots or downhill ski boots! Do not buy this shoe unless you are super paranoid about turning your ankle...of course you run in this thing long enough you'll probably have wicked shin splints or a fibular fracture. This shoe would be better used as doggy toy for my next door neighbor's German Shepherd!

      These shoes would be perfect if it wasn't for the poor quality of the sole. Rubber traction blocks started coming off and now the sole is separating from the rest of the shoe after below average use.

        I get shin splints and after searching for a good running shoe for 30 years I found this website and did extensive checking of their shoes. Found these and I haven't left them for several years now. My shin splints have been very managable ever since switching to these shoes. I love them and they don't look bad as a casual shoe for daily use after they are no longer good for the road.

            I've paid $180 for running shoes before. The 763 feels just as good as a high priced shoe. Why pay more? Great shoe. I'm a 200 pound avid runner and can't think of anything I don't like about the 763! As long as the 763 is available, I'm buying them. Like I said, "Why pay more?"

                      When they first came out getting over acute plantar tibial fasciitis that resulted in wrong shoes and over training. These are the ticket for a larger frame mid-mod mileage runner. Have bought a pair for our son as well who runs off season training for collegiate swimming. Very durable and are a good stabilizing cushioning shoe. Not the greatest in snow.

                        Greatest NB shoe ever. Comfortable, no break in necessary. Fits like a glove. However, note they run small and wear out fast. It can't be said enough, "I hope they never stop making the 763's".

                        For me the most comfortable shoe I've worn in forty years of running but they do wear out very fast. I went through at least six pair before they became unavailable for a while. Fortunately they are cheap. I'm very glad to see they are back.

                        I love this shoe. I hope they never go out of production. Once you find the right shoe, it's fantastic. Best shoe for me -- fits great, feels right, lightweight and not too expensive.

                        I've tried a lot of different shoes over the past 30+ years. I get shin splints bad, but my search for a shoe to help this ended with this shoe. My only concern is that they will quit carrying it. By the way, I use these shoes for working out at the athletic club and run four or five miles and have done so for close to a year in my first pair. Shoe still performs well with absolutely no complaints.

                        These are a great pair of shoes. I have easily put 300 miles on my first pair and they are just starting to wear out. Since they are so cheap, I can just order another pair.

                        I've been through two pairs of these shoes now: I'm a fan. They're light, fit out of the box like a glove, and haven't ever injured me (unless I overwear them).
                        The only problem is that they wear out extremely fast. It's not too much of an issue as the shoes are inexpensive, but the sole disappears quickly. Good shoe, just be prepared for it to die quickly.

                        My doctor put me in these men shoes although I am a small framed female. The incerts the PT makes for me allows for the foot issues that I have to be resolved with these shoes. Not pretty for a girl and they don't wear well (I want shoes that last for ever) but they are light weight and cheap enough to satisfy me.

                        Greatest NB shoe ever. Comfortable, no break in necessary. Fits like a glove. However, note they run small and wear out fast. It can't be said enough, "I hope they never stop making the 763's".

                        Shoe runs narrow even in the 2E. Its 1/2" narrower then a comparable New Balance wide (2e) shoe.

                        Wow, what can I say? I'm just not feeling this shoe! The worst experience I have ever had with a running shoe. Usually I'd have to go to K mart to get my feet to hurt this bad. The ridiculously high arch and the overwhelmingly suffocating high sides ensure that your foot will only go where the shoe wants you to. It feels like I'm running in a pair of those 80's style moon boots or downhill ski boots! Do not buy this shoe unless you are super paranoid about turning your ankle...of course you run in this thing long enough you'll probably have wicked shin splints or a fibular fracture. This shoe would be better used as doggy toy for my next door neighbor's German Shepherd!
