I have had a hard time finding shoes that fit properly ever
since I can remember. The only option ever available, at
least those I could find, was to get a leather shoe in a
size larger. I say leather because that would eventually
stretch to make room. This is a very comfortable shoe. I
truly feel like I am not even wearing any. Am truly grateful
to find a shoe that fits. Can you tell? ;-)

This is an outstanding model in all respects. The only
problem, it could be a little lighter (it weighs 15 oz).
Comfortable and good looking, though very sporty. I only
hope they don't change it (this is already a replacement for
a similar 991). I don't understand what kind of people work
for New Balance marketing: everybody hates them for changing
models, and they keep doing it. Is this the way to prove

After three weeks and sixty miles, the shoes feel great but
my calves hurt while I'm running. That never happened with
the 991, that I wore for five years. It may work itself over
time but I wonder if others are having the same problem.
They are very comfortable, and I expect to get three to four
months out of them.

After running on my first pair of 10.5 2E M991GLs, I was
hooked. The heritage look, perfect fit and comfort made them
my favorite kicks. After going through half a dozen pairs, I
was initially disappointed when they dropped the 991s and
went to the 992s. However, I finally bought two pairs of
992s and they feel great. I run nearly 6+ miles everyday.
I'm 180 lb, 5'8", and ran my first full marathon in 4 hours.
I recommend these shoes if you have a flat to low arch (mild
over-pronater), and need a shoe to train in for long
