Comments: I have worn New Balance Tennis Shoes for a long time. The 2E width in this shoe does feel different than
anything New Balance has ever produced. It is a closer fit in the midfoot area as described -- but the shoe fits true to size! The snug
fit in the midfoot keeps your foot very stable in the shoe and prevents slipage. I do not mind the tongue being shorter than other
models. The top laces come very close to the top of the tongue -- but the tongue stays in place and there is no problem.
Comments: I have been wearing 1004s and 1005s for some time in 8 1/2 2E. I just ordered this shoe and am sending
them back as this model is narrower than previous New Balance versions. In addition, the tongue is shorter than previous versions
and thus the knotted shoe lace is almost at the top of the tongue.
