Comments about Womens New Balance 990 Running Shoe:
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.
Feels half size too small
Feels true to width
