Models like the 990 series and 1200 series are extremely popular with runners and walkers and are made right here in the USA. Although models like the 574 are sometimes made in the usa, it is usually only the classic grey color scheme, and they are simply just fashions shoes. I would def not recommend them for a day in the park.
well, thats all I have to say about that. - A former NB employee
All 4 of my kids wear NB sneakers because they are one of the only brands come in a wide width. When they outgrew the children's size at our local Mom and Pop shoe store, I tried the NB Store in Princeton/Lawrenceville NJ. They had no idea how to fit my children. None whatsoever. They asked their size, and I said I had no idea because they had grown. I asked them to get a thingy and measure them. They looked at me like I had 2 heads.
I ended up at Princeton Running Shoe to get a proper fitting. When they didn't have the size I needed, they suggested going to the NB store I had just left. I proceeded to tell them my experience and how I ended up in their store.
I can only hope that if they do open a store in Disney Springs that it's staffed with educated employees.
