"My old pair of 642's were really wearing out so I needed to replace them fast. Couldn't find the 642's so after looking, the 699's looked very similar. I need them for a lot of walking. I had foot surgery just over a year ago and these are so comfortable, even after wearing for a long time. The fit is great, the comfort even better. I've been wearing NB for a long time now. This is the first time ordering on-line, but it was super easy."

"Just not as comfortable as I was hoping. Lacking support"

"I wear a size 10 dress shoe. This shoe in 10D was WAY too narrow, especially across the top of the foot. I exchanged for 10 4E and the fit is perfiect. NB must run small because I did the same with another model. Love them once fitted properly."

"I am a 10 D shoe size as measured by a NB retail store. They did not carry the 669 so I ordered it online in a 10 D. The toe box was perfect, the heel slipped a little but okay, but it was too tight over the top of the foot. Barely enough lace to tie a knot. I walked about 1 mile and they were not comfortable so I am exchanging them for 10 4E. I am not an extra wide in any other shoe. They have not arrived yet."

"With a Stiffer shoe, in a 4E size, you should build a greater instep height because it is obviously for a fatter foot! I have not had this problem with other "NB""

"I saw these shoes in a store and tried them on. I liked them, but they didn't carry a wide enough size so I had to order them online. I wore these shoes for 1 week in LA and 2 weeks walking all over Europe. They held up superbly! They're extremely comfortable, fairly water resistant, and they look good with jeans, tan, and grey pants. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a comfortable everyday walking shoe."

"I ordered this pair and a 659 pair at the same time. The 659 had the proper width, but this pair did not. It was too narrow, just like a "D" medium width that many cheap shoes call wide. It would be nice if all New Balance shoes had a uniform standard for width, so that all the shoes were equivalent saving the customer the hassle of a return."

"I purchased these for a trip to Machu Picchu in Peru. They worked out better than I imagined! For walking on rocks and rough trails around the ruins, these shoes were so comfortable! The tread was great, the shoes were strong but not clunky, and they FIT to size. I order all my NB running shoes in size 10, and the size that fit me best for the 669 was size 10. Highly recommended, they look GREAT in the black/red combo."
