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.

WW812 is sturdy, well made, comfortable and much more attractive than previous version (WW811) which was incredibly clunky (looks like a clown shoe).
I love these shoes because without them I could not begin to do what I have been doing - walking 5-6 miles a day. My feet are very wide, very sensitive (other shoes cause me all kinds of annoying injuries), I have neuropathies from chemo, and I get neuromas. Jeez. With these shoes, I can really walk. Otherwise, not so much. I hate these shoes because they are so very ugly. Seriously! Hello New Balance and all other shoe companies, why do the wide shoes have to be so horrendous?! Is it a punishment of some sort for having wide feet? I am so envious of women wearing shoes with actual color and style.

Best walking footwear ever! Am healthcare worker and active all day long. These fit great out of the box and feel good even after a long day on my feet.
