    I love New Balance. I read the reviews and noticed the remarks on sizing. I normally wear a 11EE. I ordered a 12EE. Perfect :)
    They are a nice replacement for the NB967 no longer made.

      Nice style of shoe. I use these shoes for disc golf and the terrain of the parks I play in sometimes have water at the holes. Feet stay very dry.

        The lining is a slick silverish nylon material that just doesn't look like it will hold up with a lot of use. I walk several miles every day and the shoe lining is usually the first thing to wear out. The soles are sturdy however, and this is a good looking shoe.

              Got these for working around the house and yard work. Put them on and got right to it,no break in, comfortable right out of the box. Maybe its just me, but New Balance shoes and I seem to be a really good fit. (pardon the pun)

                  I have bad knees that require proper foot support in order to walk comfortably and these fill the bill. The toe box is tall enough that my toes are not confined, the shoe laces up easily to get the tightness you desire, the higher ankle rise helps keep the foot in place and comfortable all day long. Interior can accommodate orthotics easily.
