These are a bit tricky with fit. The last is narrow heal, high instep. I needed a 9.5 instead of my usual 8, but when I figured it out, I'm in walking shoe heaven. My problem feet are a challenge and these shoes are waterproof, warm and accommodate my custom orthotics. Love them. They provide great support. Probably the best short boot/walking shoe I've ever worn. I have a narrow foot, but still required a larger size. Part of that may be my orthotic. Be patient and try different sizes or order 2 sizes and be prepared to return. It's worth it.

I have had New Balance in the past, and they fit fine. This shoe is to narrow in the toe, and it slips on my heel. Looks too much like a man's shoe.

I absolutely love this shoe! However, the wide is not wide enough for my foot! I really wished they came in a 2E because I would certainly purchase them again. I mainly love the color and comfort if I could wear them. I also absolutely love Zappos exceptional customer service. Thanks again Zappos for offering such exceptional quality merchandise and customer service!

I'd also recommend: Not Sure.

These shoes are accurately sized, but the heel slips. I have narrow heels, totally flat arches, and a somewhat wide forefoot. The heel is too high and bites my ankle with each step. The shoe is stiff, but well made. Unfortunately, the arch support is not in the right position for my feet and the stiff sole dislocates my big toes, so I am sending them back.

This is the 5th pair of New Balance shoes I've owned. All have fit perfectly except this pair. I wanted a new pair of 749s, which is no longer available. I thought the 956 would be comparable, but not true. These shoes have caused me considerable foot pain, but I've worn them outdoors now and cannot return them. I hate to give Goodwill such an expensive pair of worthless shoes.
