Worth the money!

I have had foot surgeries, and wear orthotics. My feet tell me when something doesn't fit well, or doesn't support well. When I wear these shoes, My feet have nothing to say - NOTHING!!! I am the queen of sore feet, and these shoes, while supporting me enough to jog & walk for exercise, feel like I'm wearing bedroom slippers - soft, no pinching or hard spots, just wonderful. I also have really big feet (women's 12), and these shoes look proportional - that's a serious added bonus for me. I've been resistant to spending the money on them, but once I put them on, I did a happy dance & said "no more cheap shoes for me!" There's a reason this is the flagship model for New Balance. They Rock. And, they're made in the USA. Win win win.
The New Balance 990 or 993 is the only T shoe I purchase. I have them in every color. When one pair wears out I use it for yard work and purchase a replacement.
My friends are hooked on them. Some of the people I know wear them all day and don't take theirs off until bedtime. Best shoe I have ever discovered. Wish I had known about New Balance a long time ago!
I own 2 pair of 993's which I love, so decided to try the 990's as they are the "new" 993's. My opinion is the 990's look a bit more sylish simply because they are somewhat narrower in the toes, but not enough to make them at all uncomfortable, still plenty of room. I have very painful midtarsal fault, both feet, from wearing cheap no arch shoes for years. These shoes allow me to walk my two miles each day with almost no pain and with no orthotics. Great shoes.
Need shoes for over pronation support, fallen arch support and ability to take out current inserts and input custom inserts. I don't feel I had pronation support.. I also feel the shoes reflected wide, in my opinion they are very narrow.
