    I have purchased this shoe for the last 6 or 7 years!

    By scbalder

    from Wamego, KS

    Comments about New Balance 706 BL Postal Men:

    I love this shoe. I have been wearing this model for the last 6 or 7 years. As a neuropathy sufferer, I'm really picky about which shoes I wear, as they must be comfortable and make staying on my feet bearable. The New Balance 706 shoe is perfect for me. I just hope that they are never discontinued!

      This is one of the few shoes I can find in a B width that really last & support my feet while standing for long periods. I buy a new pair about once a year. It's the only shoe I can work for 8 hours in without my feet hurting.

            • About New Balance
            New Balance has grown to be one of the largest manufacturers of running shoes and they've done this without expensive advertising campaigns. New Balance knows that there is no better press than positive word-of-mouth. New Balance began as an arch support company, but in 1960, they designed the first running shoe with a ripple sole and the first running shoe that came in varying widths. It didn't take long before New Balance running shoes were used by college track teams all over the country. Today, New Balance makes their shoes available in more widths than almost any other company and that means that there's a New Balance that can fit nearly any foot. Although they started by making running shoes, New Balance tennis shoes are an industry staple and are loved by recreational and serious players. New Balance also makes fine running and tennis apparel, as well as a variety of socks and other sporting accessories.
