Finally a shoe worth buying: Update below, don’t get them wet…..admin
I have been thru several different makes and models in the last few years and was disappointed by every purchase.
I have arthritis in both ankles and my left was shattered in an accident and is always painful. I was buying spongy shoes for the cushioning but those bothered my hips and back. My feet also roll outward and the shoes were only lasting 8-10 weeks. I’ve been wearing this current pair for 4 months and they are still supportive and comfortable. I hope New Balance doesn’t mess with a good thing as they seem to always do. I would recommend these to anyone needing a supportive cushioned shoe.
Update: I live in SW FL. where it rains everyday. I was wearing a new pair to work and I got caught in a downpour. I work outside so I ended up having to walk in soggy sand and when the shoe got wet it lost all support.
The shoes were only a week old and I ended up with my foot rolled outward and I was walking on the actual side of the shoe. Being out of town for a job I had to wear them walking on the side for 2 more days. My ankles hurt so bad I had to crawl through the house because I could not walk. This went on for 2 more days before I could put any weight on them.
Having worn New Balance for as long as I can remember I ordered another pair and it felt awkward after just trying the on. I took a mini square and was amazed how far the shoe was. The top part of the shoe was attached to the sole crooked.SEE PIC.
I just ordered a pair of Reebok DMX Max to try.
