I have worn NB for many years, and could consistently buy 12 4E across every model I tried -- but not anymore. Nowdays it is hit or miss, and usually too small/narrow/tight. This is apparently not an uncommon problem, as many reviews on Amazon frequently mention the same thing. I've returned at least 3 pair of New Balance because of this, and unfortunately these Model 481v3 are going back for the same reason.
It's very disappointing, as it doesn't seem to be rare or accidental -- I attribute it to a lack of attention to detail and poor quality control at New Balance. NB used to be my go-to shoes, but I'm open to other brands these days.
Tongue of the shoe is WAY TOO NARROW. Is New Balance increasing its profits by shaving off few millimeters from the width of the tongue?
The shoe is way too narrow. I ordered 4E and if this so called Extra Wide is so narrow, I can't imagine how a normal shoe would be like.
Order half a size up, and extra wide
The shoe itself is pretty comfortable, not a huge departure from the 475's that I've had for a few years. The fabric above the toes provides nice ventilation. The sole has good tread and I'm pretty sure they'll do great in the dirt. Hopefully these last me as long as the 475's did. The leather looking material does seem a little cheap, but for the price I'm not complaining.
