I've purchased this shoe many times in the past few years for work. I think New Balance has re-designed it. Not as comfortable now.

These shoes felt about half a size too small and fairly narrow. They are also more food service shoes than athletic shoes.

Perfect for my nursing school clinicals. Comfortable, a little lighter weight than I like, no blisters, no break-in needed. If you have high arches you may need an insert or another shoe. These shoes are utilitarian, comfortable, not cute, and a great deal.

I needed the non slip soles for work. They are comfortable right out of the box, but I wish they had more foot cushion. My feet are tired by day's end.

Through reading other peoples reviews, I found that if you want this shoe - you should most definitely buy it a size larger than what you normally wear. It's great to use in the service industry since I'm on my feet between 7-12 hours a day. I couldn't tell you much about the arch support because I use an insert to help with preexisting knee pain. Overall, I say if you are required to get a non-slip shoe for work, forget shoes for crews and buy these New Balance because you get what you pay for.

I wear size 5 and I have wide feet so I listened to the previous reviewers and bought a 6 wide. They are very comfortable; however, I feel as though I need more arch support since I'm on my feet a lot as a student nurse. I will probably get some gel cushion for these shoes. I got these in white and they look decent with flare scrub pants but with any other pants, I think they can be a little bulky.
