New Balance 993 – What an amazing shoe which I have worn on and off for the past 15 years or so. Every once in a while, I'll try a Nike or another brand, however, I always come back. Really love the fit and retro look of this shoe. I have a wide foot so this shoe was perfect, very comfortable for me and, for different buyers they can be used for multi-purposes. They always give you a great arch support, the mild to moderate slight over-pronators. This model is truly worth your money, though a little expensive – a great shoe. Highly recommended!
Lighter then 992s and better than 991
Decades of years ago, New Balance discontinued the foam cushioned 991 and replaced it with the gel cushioned 992, the predecessor of the 993s. Nowadays, they upgrade the 993s by consisting of both gel and foam in its cushioning. As comparisons, they are lighter (12.00 oz) than 992s and again feel like putting on a pair of socks like the older 991s.
Yes, they are Made in The USA.
New Balance 993 is the shoe belonging to a patriot, which you can notice the prominent USA in bold against an American flag in the back of each of these shoes with which the 993's speaks up to you We Are Made in The USA and We Are Quality Shoes, and that's why this shoe is very popular in the military.
Running? Walking? Or even for multi-purpose?
For a marathon runner or a serious running lover who does all the running 30 to 50 miles a week on the treadmill, this shoe does a great job in combining comfort, stability and their shock absorption. The 993s allow you to continue moderate jogging despite arthritis in both feet that necessitated going to a slightly wider and very well-cushioned shoe.
With it looks pretty good as a casual shoe just to wear out or if you are on your feet a lot or if you were an artist who walks in the city, which is essential to an artist's well-being, you would throw out your old sneakers when you got these New Balance 993's. What's more, you will order one pair of these, and then order a second pair.
They are extremely comfortable, fit perfectly, classic, cool look, and color choices were terrific and they look great in the gym and also with jeans. If your feet are too tired to stand for 8 hours a day, you will really love these shoes. There is a great support in the sole as well as the toe bed. They are very breathable so your toes will get cold at night, especially on winter nights on the big city's streets but if your feet sweat a lot it will be a good thing.
5 width choices for your wide or narrow foot!
New Balance sneakers will always serve you well, if you have a wide foot which makes NB the perfect choice – 5 width options. In fact, even if a female with a size 8.5 wide foot you can still order these particular sneakers in a men's size 7.5 EE. Therefore, if you are female who has a wide foot with at least a size 8.5, directly give it a try of the men's shoes of this model. Apart from for wide foot, this is also the best shoe for a runner and or walker who needs a narrow one.
Indeed! They are for over-pronator?
If your feet tend to roll inward more than necessary as you run, the 993s can assist you in correcting your motion and easing fatigue. This classic design comes loaded with technological features that cushion, stabilize, support and comfort active feet. I have to say the stability is what this shoe does and does super well ever for me, may be for you (never take my word, try it).
Shopping tip: To order the larger one.
Although many buyers of these shoes felt that are true to the size, I would suggest you to order the larger to avoid your big toes break through the fabric top after a few months. If you used to order the shoe in 10 1/2 as your regular size, you will need to go up half a size, an 11.
