For my feet, the perfect walking shoe! This particular "last" works best for my feet (get more info on NB lasts on their website). I have flat feet and the right one has a bunion and a very painful neuroma. This last is more narrow in the heel and bigger in the to box, which is a must for me. And the shoe is very, very orthotic friendly. I try them all and currently have two items in the left she and three in the one on the right and everything fits. In addition, this shoe is not the usual awful white or black. I really wish that New Balance would get more creative with style. This one is different and people comment on it all the time. For my lousy feet, a great shoe!

I've never worn a more deceptive shoe. I tried these on and they were very comfortable; plenty of room in the toebox to keep my feet comfortable, and fit like a glove across the rest of my foot. But after walking outdoors in them for 25 minutes, my feet were in so much pain, I had to stop walking! What a complete disappointment! Now, I can't return them and get my money back because I've worn them outside. I am utterly outraged that a shoe billed as "athletic" can only be used for decorative purposes. If you want sneakers to go on long walks in, to go to the fair or amusement park all day, or do workout in -- this pair is not for you! If you want a pair to stand in, that look okay with jeans, and that's all you want them for -- then get these shoes. But I'm warning you...the comfort you feel when you first try them on is thoroughly deceptive. They turned out to be a complete let down!

I have very bad bunions and was in a great deal of pain. So the search for shoes began. I tried many and of course Zappos return policy and great customer service made it a lot easier on the search. The New Balance are great and I have not had any pain since I first started wearing them. Right where a bunion is the shoe had a loose material and that really helps. I have 2 pairs and my only complaint is I would love them in another brighter color.

I'd also recommend: not sure

Odd sizing. I got it in my usual size, and my toes were hitting the front of the shoe. At the same time, my heel was sliding up so I didn't want to go up a size. This last is supposed to have a narrow heel, but didn't seem like it.

I am very pleased with this comfortable walking shoe. Moreover, the availability of this shoe in a half size made all the difference in fit and comfort as my big toe does not hit the tip of the shoe while walking.

These are very nice comfortable shoes. The 846 to me was much better, but they no longer make them, so these are the closest replacements.

These shoes were very uncomfortable. I felt as if they had no cushioning whatsoever, and they slipped in my left heel.I wore them around the house for just 1/2 hour and my left foot started hurting and tingling. Returning for something else!

I'd also recommend: New Balance only
