I bought these for my son in college marching band. He loves them. He said they keep his feet from getting tired and it's like he's walking on air. He said he will never wear another type of shoe again. His orthopedic surgeon told him to only wear New Balance because the arches are far better in New Balance than any other shoe.

I've owned many other New Balance at the same size I ordered and this was the first time they were small. They felt really comfortable, just small.

Had to get a half-size larger than I normally would, but feels and looks good. My wife is getting a matching pair.

This shoe is advertised as a neutral cross trainer well suited for those with high arches. I have fairly normal pronation. I'm 6'0, 155 lbs and wear a 10.5 medium. This shoe was a disappointment. I thought the shoe fit extremely well, but it lacked cushioning, heel support, and ankle support. My heel slipped out during normal ambulation. If you're doing any plyometrics or running, you're likely going to roll an ankle in these shoes. There was no really no arch support and I was thinking of buying inserts to add curve and extra cushioning, but why spend extra money? Overall, I give this shoe a C-. The price looks good, but in this case, you get what you pay for.

Not a fan of these shoes, overall the fit is small & narrow. In my opinion I'd order up a 1/2 size; however, more important the heel box is really shallow, the note above is correct. No doubt you will roll and ankle if you push it in these, I like the style but after about a dozen gym visits - giving them every possible chance I just cant see risking it. I'm done with these end will be moving on. I've owned NB sneakers in one form or another for 20 plus years, these are no doubt the worst.
