"I was looking for a really sturdy trail type walking shoe to replace the all-terrain 475's I loved. New Balance customer service recommended the 659. I ordered a pair in the winter and I quickly (too quickly it seems) determinded they would be good (I'd been looking for two years for a good replacement). So I ordered 6 pair....5 gray and 1 brown through a local store where I received a discount. That was in January 2015. It is now June and I've tossed out 2 pair after the support quickly left, use the 3rd pair for lawn mowing only, gave away 1 pair to a relative because I was so disappointed in them,, and have just pulled out 1 of the last 3. It seems really good supporting tennis shoes have gone out of fashion."

Yes, I recommend this product.
"Have been running in NB shoes for 30 years. I purchased a pair 6 months ago and use the shoes for hiking and trail running (3-5 miles). Felt great right out of the box. Breathable, good support and cushioning. No problems with shoes so far. I would purchase another pair. I would not recommend for cold, wet conditions."
