My New Balance Classics are great. However, this style is new for me, and my feet have serious issues. I find I cannot walk as far in this style as I do my regular New Balance Classics. Nonetheless, I love these slip on New Balances for walking at my stand up desk in the office. I can easily slip them on and off, wear my professional shoes for business meetings, etc., then back to my New Balances for standing at my computer - truly comfortable! They look pretty cool, too.

I have worn the new balance 802 for years. The 801 is the new version and they are just as great as the 802. I did take the advice of previous reviewers and ordered a 6 1/2 instead of my normal size 6. With a medium sock they fit perfect! They look good with shorts or jeans.

Just started wearing them the other day and now they feel like slippers on my feet. I especially love the fact that you can just slip your feet right into them and be on your way. That was one of the reasons I decided to purchase these sneakers.

I'd also recommend: Orthaheel, Merrell, New Balance

Very narrow mid-foot, but 1/2 size longer than actual size! Good support, if you can figure out what size to get!

I was so disappointed in the fit of these shoes, I wanted a slip on walking shoe. My instep hurt after wearing around house. Tried different insoles which did not help. I liked the fact that they came in wide, but they were very uncomfortable. New Balance is not the shoe it used to be.

I'd also recommend: Easy Spirit, Dansko

I shop a lot on the internet, and I must say that ordering from Zappos was one of the easiest and most satisfying. The shoes I was looking for were quickly found, easily ordered and arrived at my door promptly...and at the best price I could find. When I look for shoes in the future, Zappos is where I'll go first.

I'd also recommend: Sketchers has a similar style, but New Balance has proven itself to last in my experience
