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 had a pair of 801 that I have worn out, so I was glad to be able to replace them. I replace the insole with my own custom made insole and they work great for me. I like a slip on!

These are my favorite shoes in the world! I usually wear a 9.5 in New Balance running shoes like 993, but in these I wear an 8. I first ordered the 8.5s knowing they run bigger, but had to reorder 8 and they are perfect! When I first put them on they were tight, but after a day-perfect. I bought these for a walking trip in Europe, and they were just right for support. I have a small arch and rather thin foot which is why the backless style works well for me. They felt so good my 13 year old daughter ended up taking them from me her feet were so sore, so she finished out the trip in them, and I wore UGGS with added arch supports. For daily wear in warm weather I like to use with 1/2 socks over my toes only.

Let me just say that these are, by far, the most comfortable shoes in my closet! They are perfectly 'true to size', stylish and comfy. I debated as I've never owned a pair of 'slip on' tennis shoes- Now I find myself slipping them on every day! Absolutely love them! I'm a 'blue jeans/t-shirt kind of girl' and am all about convenience... With that said, I give these beyond 5 stars!

I love these shoes. I was looking for something that was between a sneaker and a sandal...something I could slip on to walk the dogs...and this shoe fit the bill. Really comfortable and cool looking too!
