Comments about New Balance 706v2 Men's Black:

True to size in my case means ordering a size 14n when my foot measures 13b. The outside dimension of the shoe matches my size 13 dress shoes. These fit best with a medium thick crew sock.

I have worn this shoe almost exclusively for 15-20 years at work (an office). Very comfortable and well cushioned. I get around 3 years wear out of them before the soles crack and the linings are shot. While the upper look acceptable, you can count on the soles eventually cracking across the stress points where the sole bends when you walk. This is an improvement they could make.

Bought them at Holobird for the best price. The standard shipping was not exceptionally fast but that's okay. Overall a good deal.

Service and delivery comments:

Reliable standard free shipping, but not really fast. Not a problem unless you are exceptionally impatient. Don't wait until you are desperate and that won't matter.

    Comments about New Balance 706v2 Men's Black:

    New shoes are for Sunday and dress occasions. Scuffed up older shoes are moved to work status. I'm on my feet 9-11 hours a day, and need an excellent shoe to accommodate wide feet.

          Comments about New Balance 706v2 Men's Black:

          I've replaced my normal dress work shoes with this product. New Balance purposely removed the logo, which helps "disguise" the shoe. Now, instead of taking shuttles or taxis around town, I add a little time to my commutes so I can walk from place to place. The shoes work great.

          Service and delivery comments:

          My first pair was a poor fit - my fault for selecting a size too large. The Holabird reps were great and promptly replaced the shoes with the proper product. Great experience.

            What did NB change from the MK706? And is the sizing the same as the MK706?

              A:

              New balance made minor changes to help improve the V2 version from the MK706. The sizing still remains consistent.

          • Q:

            What kind of last does the shoe have? I have a really high arch, and need good support

              A:

              The New Balance 706v2 is built on New Balance's DSL-2 last. This last features a narrow heel, high instep height, deep toe box and wide forefoot. It does feature New Balance's RollBar technology, which is designed to minimize overpronation. Typically shoes featuring RollBar technology are best suited for walkers/runners with moderate to low arches while walkers with higher arches will typically fare better in neutral shoes, which can be viewed here: www.holabirdsports.com/shoes/men-s/walking/shopby/hb_walking_shoe_foot_type-high_arch.html

          • 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.
