    As I am a person who is working on going from overweight to a healthy weight, I needed shoes that would support me as I started walking and then transitioned to jogging. These shoes are wonderful as they help with my gait as I am running as I have some issues with my feet and pronation and these shoes helped with that. The arch support may need to be changed out, but that is true to all shoes but for me this was a must have these shoes have truly made it easy for me to go from walking to running. They also have taken the stress off of my body and back into the shoe which is a bonus!

      Comments about NEW BALANCE Men's 990 Running Shoes:

      I ordered this product from your store in Laurel, Maryland. The young lady that assisted us was absolutely wonderful.
      On the other hand, I live closer to the Bowie, Maryland store off Route 50 and route 301. The short gentleman there who is either a manager or some kind of supervisor, is very terrible. He lacks tact and diplomacy, or he does not know how to talk to people that look like him.

              I did not want to order online, I went to the store to purchase, but they were out of my size. I ordered from the store and it took nearly two weeks to get the shoes. I walked into the Canoga Park store 2 days after ordering and they had ample supply of my size so I bought them. I now have 2 pair but will never order stuff online from Sports Authority again....very bad service!

                  I originally bought this shoe a few years ago and keep going back to it as my all purpouse sneakers. Great for walking, running, or just because. The only negative I could say is that not to take them on a trail run and want to wear them out later unless you don't mind the stains. Suede is nice, but gets dirty easy so I ordered the black too. Comfortable, Durable, AND MADE IN USA.

                    Comments about NEW BALANCE Men's 990 Running Shoes:

                    I found Sports Authority did not have a lot of choice for me in Men's size 13 running shoes that offered a lot of cushioning. These sneakers were basically my only choice. I found the reviews by other customers really helpful (i.e. often sneakers were only used in walking) And so far, I think they are the bees knees. I've worn them jogging and to gym classes. Lots of support/cushioning. I know of a couple of people who have had foot problems and New Balance was 'prescribed' by the podiatrist. The "N"'s on either side of the shoe are reflective, a thin strip at the toe box is also and so is the back ankle support piece. Great for visibility on the road. With running shoes, you get what you pay for. And luckily I had a gift certificate for part of it. These seem to be a good investment-I've been using them for a week and I'll think I'll be getting a lot of wear out of them. And it's always good to support American made when so it seems the majority of items we buy is out-sourced these days.

                      I have been wearing the 990 series for over 10 years, first with the 991, and then the 992. I fast-walk at least four miles every other day, and when my 992s wore out I was happy to find the 990v3 to replace them. I was happily surprised that the 990 fit was exactly like my old 992s. New Balance is one of only a few companies that offers shoes in various widths, which is helpful to me with my wide feet. These shoes provide excellent support and comfort for my long walks
