the base of the MC 996v3 felt highly stable. The shoe rides pretty low to the ground, especially around the baseline. New Balance uses its ProBank technology—which provides an extra layer of stability—at the midsole to offer protection during lateral movements.
I also enjoyed the feel of the synthetic upper, crafted from knit and infused with nylon. The design fits snugly around the foot and gives the shoe more durability.
Normally I find New Balance shoes quite amenable for wide feet, so if you have a wider foot you should consider a different model. But if your foot runs narrower than mine, you’ll probably find that the MC 996v3 fits you well.
