"I have purchased tennis shoes here for years and like them for the fit and durability. My recent purchase of these hiking shoes was a disappointment. The 13 4E is much smaller than the tennis shoe is bought last month. Had to return them."
No, I do not recommend this product.

"I'm a new customer to NB, and now have two pairs - 610 and these 889. I'm a tactical trainer for law enforcement and these are my new go to shoes for working the drills on the range. I used to wear tactical boots but found I need something more athletic and light weight. I smiled as soon as I slipped these on upon delivery. Great cushion, feel tough yet sporty. If true to my other NB shoes. I will post later on how they hold up to a beating after a few weeks. As of a few days I plan on buying a few more pairs before NB changes the style too much. It ain't broke NB, leave these ones alone! ;)"
Yes, I recommend this product.

"I bought these shoes at the end of Summer because I needed some shoes that I could walk a lot in while still looking nice. These shoes have been THE BEST shoes that I have ever bought. The soles are very nicely cushioned. They also do not wear away quickly like many of my past shoes have. Many of my other shoes rip along the bottom seam, however, these have not! I have done light hiking in them but I would not hesitate to hike many days in these. If you are looking for some great all around shoes I highly recommend these shoes!"
Yes, I recommend this product.
