I've been a devoted fan of the WW811 for about a decade. When Zappos did not have my size in stock, I went to a New Balance store, only to be told that the WW811 is being replaced with the WW812. So, I bit the bullet and ordered a pair of WW812s from Zappos. I've been wearing them daily for about a month. First, if the shoe isn't immediately comfortable, it won't get comfortable with wear. It passed this test. The heels on both models have a slight indentation at the outside of the heel; it is deeper on the WW812, which was not entirely comfortable at first, but I got accustomed to it. While you're not supposed to do this, the WW811 is much easier to get onto the foot without a shoe horn; the back of the WW812 keeps folding in while trying to put it on this way. With plantar fasciitis, comfort trumps fashion with me any day; that said, these look a little "clunkier" than the WW811s. I exchange the lining for an orthotic and it works just as well with the WW812 as it did with the WW811. Had I not experienced the WW811, I would have given the WW812 a 5-star review all around; as it is, it's a great shoe, but I miss my 811s!

I was really worried when NB abandoned Model 811, which I'd worn for decades. I tried the 812 in the same size and width(4E), but found that it pinched the toes and instep terribly. Still looking for a solution.

Clunky. Sadly they are the first shoe that I found fit well - I have wide (and troubled) feet, but am small with a size 6 foot, and these shoes are heavy and clunky. Maybe for a bigger person?

I'd also recommend: still looking!

I have worn the 811 for several years. The 812 is supposed to be a replacement for the 811. I found the 812 to be shorter and not true to the size as I have known it.

I wear these for everyday use around the house. I have a wide toe box and a narrow heel. They never hurt my feet. I wear size 7 but I always get these in 7 wide.

The WW812 fits well and is very comfortable thanks to the foam insole. It fits the same as other NB shoes. I got a 12 2A and that's what I usually wear. There is plenty of toe depth for my upturned big toe. I have metatarsalgia (ball of the foot pain) and this shoe solves that problem. I couldn't wear the 811 because it didn't have enough cushioning for the ball of my foot but the 812 is perfect. The heel doesn't slip and my foot is very narrow. Also I have no arch but this shoe has perfect arch support for me. This is a really good shoe and it looks good on my feet. I have already purchased another pair in black.

I'd also recommend: Aetrex

Overall comfort and fit, especially in narrow width, are good. Color and look are appearance are attractive and less "sneakery". I would have liked a bit more cushioning.
