Poor Quality, New Balance no longer great products
I have been a loyal New Balance customer since the first year they released the original 990 in early 1980's. I have always worn their top of the line shoe. I'm not even sure what I will now purchase instead, but their quality has definitely taken a turn for the worse. I had 2 pairs of the 2040 and both had same issue with the middle layer of rubber disintegrating. The 2040's like several other pairs of New Balance shoes I had (1500, 1600, 1800) will start to smell like cat urine after awhile. The cat urine smell comes from the rubber; can't do anything to get rid of the smell. Like other former great companies, New Balance is selling poor quality.
