"I came to NewBalance because they are one of the very few hiking boot makers that respects their users enough to make boots that fit. I wear 11-EEEE, but most makers don't make anything wider than a medium. How they can make boots that aren't wide enough for a major portion of the population is beyond belief. Anyway, I bought these last Friday, along with the model 1200 insoles. I've got 20-miles on them so far, mostly on flat ground, through thick grasses. Saturday I was out in 17-degrees F with frost on the grass, walking around 4-miles. My feet stayed totally dry and comfortable. These boots are the most comfortable that I've ever owned. The toe box is roomier that most boots and the heel and mid-foot support is excellent, without being tight. Incredibly, these boots are as comfortable as the boat shoes that I also bought at NB. I'd previously owned some Gore-Tex boots by NB and was actually looking to buy those again, but they've been discontinued. Lucky for me, because these are more comfortable by a couple of orders of excellence. The tongue is nicely padded so that I can tie the laces tighter than I can with other boots, without putting pressure on the top of my foot. Great boot."
