I have been wearing New Balance shoes since 1980. Ove the past 2 years I only get 2 to 3 months of wear from these expensive 993 shoes before the start to smell like cat urine.
I am not a runner and I only use these shoe for normal everyday wear. This week I checked other blogs and found that everybody is complaining about the same issue, it appears that the rubber breaks down and causes this rotten smell.
If sombody can get me the telephone number for their corporate office, I will address this personally. All of the New Balance Shoes that I have owned were labeled as Made in The USA !
