About New Balance
New Balance began as a Boston-based arch support company in the early 1900s, developed into a specialized manufacturer of shoes in the 1970s, and has grown to become a leading global athletic products company. Today New Balance is a family of brands including New Balance, Dunham, PF Flyers, Aravon, Warrior and Brine.
Since the days of selling arch supports to police officers and waiters, New Balance has been a brand concerned with meeting the needs of the everyday athlete. In pursuing this goal, they developed an "Endorsed By No One" philosophy, which holds that a superior product will sell itself better than any superstar athlete ever could. Part of producing New Balance shoes and athletic clothing is manufacturing it to fit all widths and sizes, because a better fit produces better performance.
To ensure the best fitting, best performing shoes and clothes, New Balance focuses on improving their technology and production methods. A big part of that is maintaining five manufacturing facilities here in the United States where they continue to produce New Balance shoes and apparel that meet the standards they've employed for 100 years. They have also remained committed to a core set of values that include integrity, teamwork and total customer satisfaction.
New Balance Reviews

Comfortable shoe. Only reason I am unhappy with it is because the shoe fell apart 6 months after it was purchased. Poor quality.

So unhappy with New Balance, I have been a loyal customer of New Balance for over 20 years. The last two pairs I have purchased, have no support, no stability and just an overall uncomfortable fit. This pair I was sure I was going to get it right. I wore them in the house for a full 3 days before I decided to keep them. They were alright and I thought with time they would break in and become more comfortable so I took the step outside. As soon as the ground was uneven they showed their true colors, I feel my feet sliding, ankles trying to stablize me as I wobble from side to side. My feet, ankles, shins, knees, inside hip and outside hip, and back are all in pain. These things are useless to me and now I can't return them. If you have any serious needs for a shoe with stability and support don't even be tempted by these. Since 2013 when New Balance changed their manufacturing to China, their shoes are horrible. Their prices have continued to rise as the quality goes down. New Balance has lost me as a customer. Zappos as always has been great with their service. I am going to try Brooks and Timberland, heres hoping they have not changed since I have purchased their shoes last.

I have always been told that New Balance has good width in the forefoot of the shoes. But these shoes narrow in at the toe, making them uncomfortable for me. I would try a size larger, but the heel felt loose already.
