Comments: At first when I saw this shoe I was happy to purchase it because I am a big fan of New Balance. Also, I liked how they were spikeless because I personally do not prefer to wear spikes. On the bad side, this is one of the worst things to ever happen to me. Because these shoes have very poor support of any point on the bottom of the foot, I highly believe these shoes are the reason for why I got Patellofemoral dysfunction. After one race wearing the New Balance 900XC spikeless, I'm now out for the entire cross country season due to the injury it caused. I was sad to find out that such a quality brand had such a low-quality shoe.
