For walking shoes, I was expecting much more comfort, padding and stability. The hard RollBar in the sole makes you feel like you are going to tip forward. The side to side stability is lousy, even with the shoe laced very tightly. I usually buy the New Balance MX 623, which are very comfortable, padded and stable, but Zappos has been out of my size forever! So I needed shoes quickly and was forced to give these a try as the next best thing. I will not buy this model again. They are too expensive for what you get.

What a big mistake it was buying these, it is not Zappos' fault, it is New Balance's. I have worn 927's for four years. They are great, as they should be for such a high price. I cannot find these now in anything but limited sizes, so I tried the 928s. My feet are killing me, these 928s are cheap shoes that are being sold for a lot more.

I weigh 220 pounds and have low arches and plantar fasciitis. I've just started back on the treadmill after a long layoff. The MW928 series provides the best arch support and firm cushioning I've found, even compared to expensive athletic shoes. I replaced the MW928 standard insole with a Sof Sole Full Length Insole. These insoles are worth the extra cost, especially if you have arch problems. I also wear thin knee high compression socks on the treadmill. In my case, thick socks would make the shoes too tight. I also need the compression while I'm on the treadmill. These shoes also come in a mess toe box version, but I found the full leather toe box to work better in my case. I can only speak from my experience, but I found these shoes to be great in dealing with my specific circumstances. Also, the bright white color looks great. If you live in the Midwest, you can add a white patent leather belt, and you're ready for church.

I have worn this shoe for quite sometime and felt that it was a comfortable shoe. For some reason this pair did not feel quite right and of course it was too late to return them after they had been worn! About a month ago I noticed that my socks were wet and thought it was because of the floor being wet at work as I work in a deli. a couple days later my socks were wet again and I was off work and walked through the grass. Upon inspection I found that the sole had come away from the shoe part. Now these shoes were only 3 months old! I normally can wear a pair for at least 6 months and the last pair I wore for 8. Very unhappy with them.

My absolute favorite New Balance sneaker is the MW 780BR. When they were discontinued, I began a search for a replacement. The MW928 is my new favorite New Balance sneaker. The higher number means more support and comfort. You can feel the quality of the sneakers as soon as you put them on. They are also stylish enough that they can also serve as a "dress sneakers."

I'd also recommend: LLBean also makes good footwear.

I had to have surgery done to my right foot. After more than eight weeks was unable to wear any shoes I already owned. My surgeon recommended a shoe with a wide too box, extra depth, and excellent arch support. She specifically recommended New Balance. Well, these are the perfect fit for me. You can't go wrong with these shoes!

Don't buy the brown ones! It's hard to tell from the photos, but the brown color is not like the all-leather black color, but made with brown leather; instead, there are inserts of really gaudy woven cloth of a much lighter color. Truly ugly and stupid. Worse, they don't fit at all the same. I recently bought a pair of brown MW928, thought they would eventually wear in, but after a month they always hurt terribly. So I threw them out in the garbage. Just replaced them with a pair of black MW928, and the black feel fine from day one. And are all uniform black leather. (Both pairs from Zappos, of course.)
