I ordered these in an 8W, which is my normal sizing for New Balance. I thought the shoe had great support, good traction. I especially liked the cushioning around the collar, which I thought would be very comfortable. Unfortunately, I have problem feet with both bunions and bunionettes on both feet. While the majority of the shoe is made of a stretchy fabric, there are some non-stretchy decorative elements around the toe. These happened to fall in just the wrong place for me, and even from just a try-on, I could feel them pushing painfully into my sensitive pinky toes. For people with less troublesome feet, I think these would be a great shoe. Unfortunately, they just didn't work for me and had to be returned.
I've never worn flip flops, so originally I was not aware that they need to be ordered 1-1.5 sizes larger than shoe size. That said, if ordering flip flops for the 1st time, order a size up for the correct fit. (Based on "ordering up", these were close to "true to size".) I have new carpeting and purchased these for "around the house" shoes - I can not walk barefoot due to high arch & supination issues. I have to say I love them - I never thought flip flops could provide the support and comfort my feet need! The arches are sturdy and comfortable and the toe straps are comfortable as well.
Very cute, but definitely run small. When I need to order bigger size I usually order a 9.5. I ordered a 9.5 wide and they were too tight/small. Back they go and I will be ordering a 10 wide.
I was running in Brooks Adreline and was very pleased. I have a short wide foot 9.5 4E...thought I'd give these a try. They run a little long in the length, but feel true to the width. The top of the shoe where your ankle bone meets the shoe is extremely comfortable when wearing. I didn't notice it wearing them around the house, but on my first run and the runs to follow, they dig and are almost unbareable.
These were so comfortable immediately! They are great for travel - a perfect alternative to the white sneaker tourist look! I ordered my normal size in wide and my orthotics fit perfectly. Highly recommend.
