" I spent more money on these NB 990 than any other footwear in my life and I can say it's the best investment in shoes and worth the money! I have severe plantar fasciitis pain which affects my leg, hip & back also. I bought them because they were the most neutral colored shoes (running shoes are too bright & bold for me) that fit with custom inserts from my doctor and were instantly comfortable. I'm not a runner but wear these almost daily (Dr instructions) for the gym, walking, errands, and working around the house. I have the least pain while wearing these shoes. I was told these 990 cost more than other NB because they are made in the USA. 6 months and they hold up well. "
Yes, I recommend this product.

" I was concerned about this shoe because I read some of the negative reviews. I have been running with this shoe for a few months now and am completely satisfied. I run about 20 miles a week but rotate between two different pairs of shoes. I now want to get a second pair of the 990s. I love the color options too. I have the gray. "
Yes, I recommend this product.

" I have been a loyal wearer of model 993 and was sold this shoe as it's replacement. The tongue of the shoe has been shortened; it doesn't stay in place at all. My run turned into more like "stop and fix the tongue"!
Why fix something that wasn't broken? Model 993 was a great shoe! I just wasted a ton of money on an unwearable shoe. Very dissatisfied with model 990. Sadly, I may no longer be a loyal NB customer :( "
No, I do not recommend this product.
