Needed to update.
2 weeks in and I give them a F now. All new tennis shoes feel like an improvement if you've overextended the life of your old pair.
Mine were overextended by 2 years.
So I got pain by the 3rd walk. Never had that happen before. Haven't been able to do my long walk since I got sick....
Noticed when I take Edgar for his midnight mile my feet hurt. Noticed after I cut grass my feet hurt.
Finally dawned on me why. The shoes have almost zero cushion support. The new shoes are the equivalent of my 2 year old worn out NBs which is very poor.
It's like walking in slippers, but they are billed as walking shoes. Hard for me to explain how it took me so long to realize this other than to say I have always loved New Balance and they have always been great shoes in the past.
I plan on buying some orthopedic insoles and use them for working around the house, etc. Terrible.
My feet hurt so bad after doing very little walking today it reminded me of the original review and my completely incorrect first impression.
