The New Balance 689 takes a performance comfort fit and combines it with an aggressive lugged outsole and a split suede and mesh upper, creating a multi-sport shoe that works just as well supporting your feet all day at school as it does protecting your feet off-trail in the woods.
"These shoes run narrow. I always wear an 8.5 Wide in New Balance but this pair hurts the side of my feet. They also seem to have a low instep. They do not identifiy what last these are either, so I don't know if that is why the instep is so low or not, but the width is definately not the normal width for a wide."
No, I do not recommend this product.
