    Nice shoe, but the rubber on the soles breaks down fast

    7/21/15 by | Kansas City

    "I like the fit of the shoe, the look and style of the shoe.....but I have had the shoe for just over 3 months and the rubber on the sole appears to be breaking down. Not like falling apart breaking down, but the shoe will squeak across any surface which gets very annoying. If you stop wearing them for a few days they will be fine for a couple of days. It is not an internal squeak, it is like walking across a clean floor squeak even on carpet and concrete. Paid too much for them to break down in under 4 months. I don't do hiking or running, just a lot of walking."

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    "The New Balance shoe in general is designed perfectly for me. I have a slightly wide foot. For many year I have run in the New Balance shoes. I recently purchased this shoe because I live in the Northeastern U.S. and for several months each year I need a good weather proof shoe."

    Not as comfortable as the 966GT it replaces

    12/23/14 by | Virginia

    • Used Product For: 2-4 weeks

    "I've had and really liked both the 955GT and then 966GT. They have been comfortable from day one and I wear them nearly every day. I was looking forward this new version and immediately went out a bought a pair. Of course I tried them on in the store. They felt a little stiff but figured that was just being new and different from my well-worn ones. I was wrong. I've worn these several times and they just are not comfortable. They feel stiff and more rigid. The leather is perhaps thicker (certainly not as soft) which may be why they also seem hotter. I've always been impressed by the others that they were never hot despite having the Gortex lining. The fit seems a little narrower, but that could be the result of the stiffer leather. I like the style and really wanted these to become my new most favorite shoes. So far, they just aren't. Perhaps they will work better for others."
