New Balance ® for J.Crew 998 hilltop blues sneakers

New Balance ® for J.Crew 998 hilltop blues sneakers is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from These Kicks Are A Must-Have J. Crew usually does a good job with its many collaborations, so it should come to no surprise that this one -by far- has to rank in their top 5 over the past couple of years -in my opinion. The unique color ways are a great transitional pairing from season to season; from fall all the way through spring. There were a couple of reviews that suggested going a half size down because they run large, but I found my true size of 11.5 fits me best. The size 11 fit fine except that it ran a little bit tight near the arch (support) and across the bridge of the foot. Overall the structure, support, design, and materials are top notch. Like insanely ridiculous top notch. New Balance 998 is perhaps the brand's best running shoe. If you're a runner my suggestion would be to grab the 998 Dark Military for running, and save the Hilltop Blues strictly for leisure. They are that sweet; definitely a fall must-have in your rotational repertoire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair Ive been wearing this pair for a couple months now and its my favorite 998. NB quality is top notch and the colorway is perfect to dress up or down. Extremely comfortable. They run .5 size large like all made in USA NB models do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are nuts!!! This has to rank in top few of the New Balance color ways and styles that I have seen. The great part about that is I was able to snag it in my size. Shoe fits a about about a half size large. I normally wear a 9.5 in NB but exchanged it for a 9. Very comfortable shoe and great for walking in. The mixtures of colors match a wide gamut pant colors from jeans to khakis. These are basically a comfortable wear with anything shoes that is very stylish. If it's still in your size I wouldn't wait on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit, style and quality! I purposely traveled into Manhattan to see if I can find these sneakers. I was beyond excited to get the last pair in my size. They are very hard to find! These sneakers provide the excellent support New Balance is known for with an awesome retro "just for JCrew" color palette and style. These look great with jeans, khakis and shorts too!
