"These shoes have no arch support or cushion. Bought them for hiking but found my old crosstrainers were more comfortable than this shoe which I returned."

"I bought these as a gift for my boyfriend, and he loves them! He has a hard time finding shoes that are comfortable to walk in, but these have been wonderful for him both on and off the trail."

"I wear a women's 8.5 4E shoe. Have a lovely pair of gray ankle-tops in that size. Wanted a similar shoe in standard cut. Saw the 769s X-wides in mens, not women's. Ordered 7.5 4E mens online. The shoes were too long, and the footbed uncomfortable. Took them back to a local New Balance store to trade for 7s. Shoes arrived, and fit decently, but the laces were too short. Shoe person swapped out some laces; we both fought a half hour to lace the thread-embroidered loops which were too small, and tips kept snagging on threads. I left; shortly thereafter got a call that they were property laced. This would never had happened if the 769s were available on a women's last as an 8.5. NB is my last hope for my wide feet.; bring back women's X-wides, if only available on order, that's fine, but please resume making them. These shoes are performing OK now, but what a hassle, and I can tell they are more cheaply made. I will pay for quality; please resume making NB as you used to! (And not in just white or neon. I'm 60 years old. I don't want neon shoes.)"

"These shoes were made for a narrower foot for a younger person, but not for an old man like me. I did continue wearing them and finally stretched out for me to wear. A good shoe for a more active person. 4 stars they are a good shoe."

Billy - Anacortes WA
"I have been wearing New Balance for many years. Always the same size 8 4E. I was surprised when the 769 were at least an inch too long. Inch and a quarter when measured against my old shoes. So I returned them and ordered a pair a half size smaller too tight. It is bad for an online shoe sight to have inconsistent sizing. You end up with very dissatisfied customers."

"I got these to replace the mens 759 that I really enjoyed and fit well for 3 pairs of shoes. Unfortunately this size d is like a b and the shoe laces are short too. Why do they stop making a good shoe?"

"I wear these for hiking and they are cushioned and stable for rough trails, or easy walks. I use the double E width which Newbalance has. They are the only brand I buy. TJ, Encinitas"

"I am hard on shoes. My 993 pair needed replacing. The 990v4 are the same fit and style with some slight improvements. When I opened the box and tried them on, I was very satisfied. The quality SHINES. Good shoes."

"I have worn these sneakers for a few days and I am very happy with my purchase. They are very comfortable, they fit perfectly and they are a very nice style. The one thing I really like about NB shoes/sneakers is that their sizing is consistent..I wear a 10.5 wide. I own several pairs of their shoes and they all fit exactly the same..."
