Thanks. Interesting review, I'm gonna try these 96s next when my Asics wear out.
I've recently begun wearing orthotic insoles and New Balance has generally been recommended as having rather thick OEM insoles I can remove and replace with my orthotics. Does this hold true with the 996?
Yes, the stock insoles are quite thick
Wow, 1 year durability warranty on the soles.
Thank You but they don't look durable in the least bit
Look more like running shoes with a different outsole...
Unfortunately, the stock insoles are NOT very thick and this shoe is a poor option for those with orthotic inserts.
My search continues...
but that 1 year durability guarantee tho
The durability of the outsoles is really bad. They bald quickly compared to the outsole of a Barricade. Otherwise it's an excellent shoe but spending more than $70 on a pair doesn't seem to be worth it.
