    Can anyone give some feedback on these? as i dont know which width and size to order, i read different things which confuses me.
    Some say 2E fits like a 4E on this particular model and if you take the 4E you have to go down in size.
    I'm looking for a wide toebox but if 2E already is very wide i think i dont need 4E...

    I suggest having your foot width measured if you are unsure of which width to buy. I've got a pair of these in 4E and I don't notice anything different relative to other New Balance models.

    Thanks for your comment, would you say they are true to size compared to other brands?

    The 1005 has quite a wide toebox in 2E, i.e. significantly wider than the 1004 in same size/width.

    I hear you though: ordering shoes online is a gamble for some of us.

    My wide feet don't fit into other brands so I can't help you there.

    Especially if your outside the US.

    Do you know anything about where they were made? i read somewhere the ones that were made in Indonesia were a lot smaller in the toe box then the American versions...
