New Balance '959' Walking Shoe (Men) (Online Exclusive)
I feel like Cinderella's ugly stepsister--I can't squeeze into these shoes.
Hey, I've been wearing New Balance 990s, 993s, 992s, 901 walking shoes, (3 pairs), and 803 tennis shoes for close to 20 years. All 11.5 4 EEEE.
But, Nordstrom, please tell the folks in Indonesia that my feet really are that big. There has to be a bunch of us older big guys that need shoes. The 959s that you sent me are not 11.5 4 EEEE. They are more like 10 D.
The search for a perfect walker
This was not the shoe i was hoping for..........my other NB shoes are so comfortable was hoping a different color/look. These, even in their widest, pinched my little toes.
Nice looking shoe though. I tried them in two sizes. Still no go.
New Balance - Brown Walking Shoe
This is a great shoe! The color is a rich brown. They are rugged and comfortable, like an athletic shoe, yet they also look very refined. They can easily be dressed up or down, since they almost look like a brown leather shoe. The length seems true to size, but they definitely run narrow. I bought a pair in size 2E, the same size I always buy in New Balance, and they were too narrow. I had to exchange them for a 4E, and they fit perfectly. I spoke to someone at New Balance and they confirmed that this shoe is considered a "country walker," which is different from their standard walking shoe, and it does run more narrow.
