    Yes, I recommend this product.

    "I had a favorite tennis shoe that you stopped making so its been hard to find a shoe that fits. I need a wide toe box and narrow heal. That's not easy to find. I love the new shoe but it still not as well fitting as the older style. For some reason the proportions of the 1296 didn't change when for a smaller shoe so the heal area came up over my ankle bone. It was comfortable so it didn't bother me but it might for someone else. It's a stiff shoe so good stability"

    "I have worn these shoes so will not send them back. They fit a lot more snuggly than my other NB shoes! Will keep trying to stretch them to my comfort level."
