  • 2 out of 5 bought these boots for work. hoped they would break in fast because they are new balance and advertised as an athletic boot. tried them for a month to give them a fair chance of breaking in. tried different socks and insoles to no avail. my feet were killing me at the end of the day. was going to send them back but missed the thirty day period for doing that. I would not recommend these boots.

  • 1 out of 5 I am a Paramedic & purchased these boots to wear every shift. I could only manage to wear these boots a day and a half before I had to go back to my old boots. I was told by New Balance to order the same size boot that I order their shoe in...that was a HUGE mistake. The boots are so uncomfortable that I had blisters on both heals after 8 hours (of a 12 hour shift). I tried everything I could think of to improve the comfort of these boots to no avail.
