It is not easy to find my size and width if I go to a department store or even major sport retailers. With my experience, it is easier for me to find my size and fit with New Balance shoes. They have wider range of sizes and widths. My older Velcro NB is ready to retire, I have abused it for 4 years and more than enough that it talks to me. It was a walking pair of shoes that I used on jogging and playing tennis. Not the smartest move. But anyway, my new Crosstrainer MX602 is perfect fit. It also gives me an extra bounce when I do my morning jogs. I feel that I don't get easily tired with this new puppies. It is very light as if it is part of my feet.
I don't usually spend a hundred dollar for shoes. The price of this model is likewise friendly to my wallet.
My only gripe? Although the shoes gives me the extra width, the shoelace do not. So, the shoelace is a bit short which make it more difficult to tie. Now I can no longer brag about my 2-second shoelace tying skill :)
