NathanWhen I heard that New Balance had a $300 pair of sneakers, natch, I had to have em. I was pretty stoked when I got em, and compared them to my fave pair (the 990s), and I gotta say, for the money, I like the 990s better. The graphite plate in the midfoot seems just too high up for me, making them a bit too stiff for my liking. I mean I understand stability in the rearfoot, but I don't really get the idea of the plate there. It makes the shoes feel a bit like the 1012 runners that have the medial post in them; just kinda stuff under the midfoot. Overall fit is still pretty good though; better than any other brand I've had, just not what I figured they'd be out of a pair of $300 NBs. Overall, I gotta say, I really like the look of the 990s (particularly in black, so I'm gonna stick with them as my go-tos.Customer Service Comments:
