"Having read the other reviews I knew the shoe ran narrow. As I typically wear a D I went ahead and purchased a 2E. It was still very tight, particularly in the toe box. I'll be returning these shoes."

"I ordered the 1296 to replace (upgrade?) my worn-out 806's. I ordered the same 2E size, but there was no way I could fit into the 2E 1296's. The shoe looks narrow, and is. I thought I was maybe deceived by the look, but I measured the insole and found that it was 3/8' narrower than the insole of my 806. Not only that, but the "hard sides" of the 1296 eliminated any chance of the shoe stretching to fit. I returned the shoe unworn, and ordered replacement 806's. My rating is low not because of the quality of the shoe, but the fact that I could not use it. It may work great for someone with a narrower foot."

"Great shoe...lighter than my previous NB tennis shoe. Caution! I ordered a 'E' width and the shoe is still to narrow...only NB I ever had this issue with including trainers and running models."
