Shopping for shoes has always been the worst experience for me. Because one foot is nearly half a size larger than the other, and I have wide feet, I wouldn't be able to find a pair of shoes that fit me properly after going through well over 5 stores. Sometimes it would take me more than a day to find just one pair.
Then, I found out about New Balance. I was taking a walk, planning to do a bit of shopping, when a store displaying a shoe brand I'd never seen before caught my eye. Deciding that I might as well give this "New Balance" a try, I went inside.
The first thing they did was measure my feet - and told me that they had many shoes that would fit my different-sized feet comfortably along with being wide enough! Surely enough, I took home my brand new pair of New Balance within 20 minutes.
New Balance shoes are probably the best footwear experience I've ever had. Although the price of $145 CAD may seem expensive for a pair of sport/running shoes, it's worth it. My New Balance shoes have lasted longer than any other pair or brand I've owned - it's been three and a half years. The material used in making the shoes is very comfortable, yet durable, and they come in many simple and pleasing designs and colors. New Balance also gives each style of shoe a different number, so you can easily find the pair you're happy with when it comes time to buy new shoes. Simply state the number at a store and they can easily find you the pair you want.
If you've ever had issues with wide feet, or have just been looking for the right pair of comfortable shoes, you need to check out New Balance.
