“Growing up, my dad worked hard for our family, and passed along his benevolence and kindness. He gave me the best of the best, which is why I’m giving him a pair of our 990s: classic American style, made here.”Jonathan C., Customer Care Rep & New Dad

"The shoes started off comfortable until you wear them for a while and the tongue slips to the side of your foot. After awhile it starts to rub and makes it very annoying. I have only had for a month and would have returned but wore them to work and they got a little dirty."

"Husband purchased new pair of New Balance 990s. Tongue consistently slid down into shoe. So uncomfortable that he had to return them. Please bring full length tongue back to these shoes."

Yes, I recommend this product.
"Switched to NB for the fact they are made in USA. I have had problems with uneven wear in past so went to NB store in Dallas and got fitted for shoes and inserts. Wow what a difference my feet haven't felt this good in a long time. Just wish they offered more color choices. People at store were wonderful and spent plenty of time making sure everything was right. Left with 2 pairs of shoes inserts for both and even tried some of the socks made from coconut fibers of which I neve thought I would switch from bamboo. Great service will be NB for life."

"I was told by the salesman that this shoe was made in Boston. It was a little pricey for an old man's walking shoe but, I'm all for supporting American Business. The problem is that the construction is poorly done. The tongue on both shoes works its way to the inside every time I put them on. Would not buy these again. I'm reconsidering my loyalty to the New Balance brand. I was always happy until this pair."
