" I bought these shoes for comfort, support and lots of walking! I love to walk. They are very comfortable from the first time I put them on. Follow the recommendation on the shoe fit. I got a half size smaller than I usually get and they are just right. You can't go wrong! "
Yes, I recommend this product.

" I too read the reviews and ignored all the comments about the tongue pulling to the side, thinking those people must have laced them wrong or some other reason. The tongue constantly pulls to the side on both shoes making them unconfortable and causing the shoe to come untied. I won't buy this style again. "
No, I do not recommend this product.

" 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.
