    Not the quality I have come to expect

    8/16/16 by | Alexandria, VA

    Used Product For: 4-6 weeks

    "I have been a NB customer for more than a decade. I have worn only their shoes for a long time. Usually buying two pairs at a time and rotating each day between the two. This pair came in much more narrow then I am used to from NB. They seemed to slip alot more than the last pair I had ordered but I was able to just tie them tighter to make up for it. In the process of tying things tighter, the eyelets have ripped out in the middle of the shoe on three of the four shoes that I have. This is probably my last pair of NB. One wonderful positive I have about NB, is the customer service. They have worked hard to get the shoes to fit - I have just become less happy with the end results this time around."

    857s immediately put to the test

    8/3/16 by | Austin TX area

    Used Product For: 4-6 weeks

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    "first off, I wear 14EEEE so I have been using NB shoes for years since it's so easy to order and know they will fit like all the others. I found a pair of 855s (very similar to the new 857) still in the box buried in the back of my closest, wore for about a month to get broken in before they failed (dry rot I suspect?) right before a big trip. I jumped on the NB website and ordered a new pair of 857 as replacements. They arrived only a couple of days before my trip, so not much break in time before heading out. I use these type of shoes as my go to outside work shoes, construction, yard, etc., so they are put thru the paces. I wore these every day for 7 days, logging 12,000 to 17,000 steps each day and by each day's end, my feet were very tired. By the end of the week, these were getting more pliable and flexible to where by the end of the day my feet were feeling much better than previously. I have been wearing this or similar model NB for likely 10-15 years and they are very stable and wear like iron for the soles and uppers (other than the failed pair mentioned above). What I have found to typically wear out after 4-6 years is the liners of the heal from taking on and off. With my foot size/width, I have a very hard time finding boots, so I use these all leather tennis shoes (sneakers) for about 95% of all my outdoor and work related activities. Quality products at reasonable prices, ordering on line and shipping makes things even simpler and I know the consistency of the fit."
