    NB has let me down

    "I am an ER nurse, spending about 13 hours a day on my feet. In the past 10 years, I have absolutely sworn by NB. However, the past 4-5 pairs I have bought have been so uncomfortable, including this pair. I so wish they would go back to their old styles again. This shoe feels like the arch is in the wrong place and rubs my toes, on top of being so big and bulky that they look like clown shoes. I have recently been introduced to Asics Nimbus and have changed companies altogether. Please bring back the old styles, NB, and restore my faith in your shoes!"

    Looking for Alternative to 1540

    "I was looking for an alternative to the 1540 which seems never to be on sale and found these on sale and promoted for stability, and being light and airy. Light and airy they are, but they are not as comfortable as I hoped they would be. They fit according to size, but are not what I would call comfortable. I had to buy an insert in order to use them."

    Cushioning, good arch support

    - Morrison, CO

    "This shoe has a lot of cushioning all around (resulting in a somewhat bulky shoe). Feels like a supportive pillow hugging your foot. Compared to the other 8 pairs of NB shoes I ordered online, this has the most arch support. I am also not a runner, but will use these for aerobics."
