Anybody can tell me how does the NB 996 compare to other light shoes like the Vapor 9? How is the cushioning and arch support?
hi,I am on my second pair of 996's and like them alot. Comfort and stability are good for a light shoe. Durability is an issue, but New Balance sent a voucher for a new pair after I sent them in for warrant. Use 2nd pair exclusively on clay now.
do you mean that the upper rips fast? the outsole durability and traction on clay is what worries me...Hi, NB 996 is good shoe: confort and light are good, but the duration of the upper is not exceptional
NB mc 1296 has a longer duration; it is a great shoe, but is not as light as the 996.
NB 1296, total, is on the levels of vapor.
