Handball player February 23, 2013
Reviewer: Paul from La
Shoe Size: Felt half size larger than marked Shoe Width: Felt true to width I have been playing handball for over 40 years and have worn NB 653's for many years. That model was discontinued so I looked for another NB with good support and the grip of a gum sole. This shoe more than met my expectations. I took your advice and ordered a half size up and it fit perfectly. Your price was even $10 cheaper than the NB site. My only complaint is that they put metal eyelets only on the top two holes; my experience is that the non reinforced holes will pull through so I will take them to a shoemaker, but otherwise a great shoe.

Great for cardio training workouts February 21, 2013
Reviewer: Sanjay from Naperville, IL
Shoe Size: Felt true to size Shoe Width: Felt narrower than marked I always go with NB athletic shoes because they are available in wide widths. This is my fifth pair of NB I have worn and I have to say the ones I paid over $100 (like this) have been excellent, so I think with NB you get what you pay for.I typically wear a men's 9 or 9.5 E in dress shoes. For 3 pairs of NB I got before this, I had get size 10.5 4E. This one runs more true to size in length for an athletic shoe, so 10 4E fit just right.I've been wearing these the past 2 months for cardio workouts with a lot of jumping, spinning and moving side to side. My foot pains disappeared after I got these! They give very good support and are very comfortable. Since I don't like to tie shoes or having shoes come untied, I installed some elastic lock laces that work very well.

Reviewer: Anonymous from Columbia, Maryland
Shoe Size: Felt half size smaller than marked Shoe Width: Felt narrower than marked I wore a size 11N for 30 years. Now it is difficult to know what size of NB to buy. I went to an 11 and a half Narrow, and the length is right for my size 11 foot, the heel is right for narrow, but the body of the shoe is too narrow and I have the laces really loose. The shoe itself is great. I don't know what NB is doing with its sizing.

One of the few that are wide enough for me October 06, 2012
Reviewer: Larry from pennsylvannia
Shoe Size: Felt true to size Shoe Width: Felt true to width I have very wide feet-my little toe seems to always rub. This sneaker was one of the widest I've found and I have tried a lot of shoes/sneakers. I ordered it in 13-6E and it fits so well and comfortable that I actually ordered 2 extra pairs in case they stop making it.
Wears this shoe: very often
