New Balance - "pissed off" and disappointed

51 of 113 New Balance reviews

I purchased a new pair of New Balance 990's.Sprayed a water protectant on them.

After a couple of months of use, I got an unusual strong cat urine oder from them and could not get rid of the Oder. I loved the shoes, so thinking it was the repellant spray that was causing the Oder, I purchased another pair of the same style shoe. A few months later same problem, but this time I did not spray the water repellant on them. Have come to the conclusion I wasted my money on the New Balance brand.

Very disatisified!Can anything be done to rectify this problem?

Third pair of 608s .soles are are disconnecting and coming apart all of them the same.thought it was me but 3 pair doing the same thing. Giving up on new balance. Was a long time user.I guess cutting quality to make more money is what's happening.
