    Good shoes, but the color wasn't as represented

    "Well, this is my new shoe type... trail runners and walkers. I've been using running shoes exclusively, and since I have been falling from a weak ankle, I decided to try a pair of trail shoes, and they do work much better. I wanted a lighter colored shoe for summer use, and these looked like the right color, but instead of having the strapping and mesh colored similarly, the strapping was much darker than the mesh, but since there aren't many trail shoes that are even this light, I stayed with these. They are comfortable, and maintain good stability for my weak right ankle, which under pronates in the extreme, to the point of instability, so on the whole, they work pretty well for me. They are a little heavy, but overall, they are a decent shoe, whereas other New Balance shoes have not worked so well for me in the past, more due to fit problems. I upped my width and that seems to have solved my problem. This may not sound so positive to some, but the only real complaint I have is the color variation from the web illustration. At least I learned of a shoe that will work well for me in the future, if they just keep making them in my size. Size is the problem for me in most shoes... they don't make the colors in the size I need. I guess they think that people with wide feet only want dark shoes. I don't necessarily want white, but I would like some that aren't dark or full fluorescent bright."

    "I've worn NB 608 for years then switched to 623 that split open after just a couple months. Very disappointed but now trying the 659. Did go to a 1/2 size bigger since consistency in fit seems to be a problem with Asian shoe makers. So far pretty good shoe."

    This is a very durable shoe

    "I live in the Pacific Northwest. I walk my dogs daily either at the beach or in the woods.. The current pair of 659s that i own I have had for almost a year. These shoes just keep on ticking. They either are exposed to sand, rocks and salt water or the moist forest floor. I walk approximately 2 miles a day...everyday. I love these shoes...definitely the most comfortable and durable walking shoes I have ever owned. This is my 4th pair in 5 years. I also have had a pair for work as well. I am on my feet the entire day at work. I put in a lot of miles in a day. At the end of the day my feet are not tired. Once I break a pair it is a joy to slip them on . Soooooo comfortable."
