I have not had a chance to where them for a long period of time, but they fit nicely. However, the design change is so disappointing. The previous design enabled me to wear them without orthotics. I had recommended them to several people and all were very happy. Hoping these support and hold up as well.

I have been a 928 user for several years. New Balance has done a disservice for those of us with foot problems. The 928 v2 is NOT the same as the original 928. I bought the new v2 from a New Balance shoe store. After 5 weeks I was in pain. I have orthotics from my podiatrist and the v2 did not give the support needed for the orthotics to work for support. I purchased two of the original 928's from Zappos - thankfully. Don't know what I will do when they are worn out. Have some time but what's next? New Balance should NEVER have changed the construction of the original 928. I have spoken to NB customer service and they tell me it is the same - not so!. People who have problems with their feet know better. We rely on the company to keep up the same product especially when many people rave about it. My feet were hurting, my knees were hurting and my hip was hurting with the new v2. Buyers be aware!!

As the owner of Kathy's Deli, I am on my feet a lot especially when we are catering weddings and other big events. I have worn New Balance 928's for years and before that I wore the 812's. The original 928's are the best thing for my feet that I have ever found. When I ordered my normal size in the 928v2, I never dreamed that they wouldn't fit! Much to my dismay, I couldn't even get the shoe on my foot. I then ordered my size in 2E instead of 2D and was able to get the shoe on, but I'm not happy with the lack of comfort. The changes are evident when you look at the two shoes side by side. Why were the changes made? It certainly didn't improve anything. Please bring back the original 928's! I usually wear a white pair everyday for working in the deli and a black pair for catering.

I thought some of the negative reviews were too harsh until I bought a pair of these shoes. I have been wearing 928s for s couple years and was very happy with their extreme comfort and durability. I have flat feet as well as arthritis in my feet and ankles and the 928s were an answer to a prayer. The new 928v2s are not comfortable and seem to lack cushioning. The material of the insoles makes my feet burn whereas the old 928s never caused any burning sensation. The new model is definitely not worth their hefty price tag unless New Balance goes back to the original 928s. I assume the new model was cheaper to make because there is less leather and stitching on the shoes.

I love the shoes, but the right shoe is definitely defective. Inside stitching at the first lacing hole is lumpy and will never be comfortable. Left shoe is perfect.
