They look great and are a quality shoe but the 623's I have fit in size 10. Should have my 10.5 pair shortly.

For several years now I've almost exclusively worn minimalist toe shoes. They're fine for Southern California, but I felt they'd be insufficient for the winter trip to Philadelphia I needed to make this year. I managed to arrive right at the beginning of the "bomb cyclone", and my ridiculously wide feet have been warm and dry, without being crushed. I couldn't be happier.

Ordered before reading reviews and shoes ran small. Read reviews which suggested they run small and re-orded 1/2 size bigger and they were perfect. Always read reviews before ordering.

This shoe is constructed very well, it's comfortable and seems to be up for just about any rugged performance

I really want to give these shoes a 5 Star, but the toe box is just a pinch small. I only have about 4 or 5 miles on them so far and I love them. 15 4E

I had to return the shoes because I am guessing that they run a full size too small. I will reorder them again a full size larger when they go back on sale.

Boy was I surprised! I ordered the 978's as a replacement for my worn out 1569's in the 10eeee, the size I've worn for years and years. I took my customary 7 mile walk and my feet hurt . Alas the shoes were apparently too tight. I love New Balance shoes and the whole line preceeding the 1569's. I'm very chagrined to have been thrown off track!!
