Rattgal - Review from Nordstrom
Great Shoe-Narrow Toe BoxThese are great shoes--but not for everyone. They're extremely light weight and superior quality. They are also Made in the USA.The only problem I had with the shoes is they seemed to be narrow and hurt my feet. I checked out the New Balance website and learned that these are designed as a "standard fit with slight adjustments, including an 8mm drop, more anatomical heel, an improved arch and a closer fit in the toe box." The "closer fit in the toe box" is the reason they hurt my feet.The shoes are exceptionally well made. They are deliberately designed to be narrower in the front of the shoe--which is probably beneficial for people who do not have "narrow" feet, but are a bit "narrower" in front than a typical medium width. I would definitely recommend these shoes as long as the buyer understands how New Balance shoes are designed and how the "narrow toe box" might impact the fit.
