These are very comfortable sneakers. I have Achilies tendinosis, and needed black sneakers to wear as a dress shoes. They feature a very streamlined design. People have asked me if I am in my socks! I work 14 hour days on my feet, and these shoes were comfortable right away.

Love these shoes, I have two pair and they're great for everyday wearing. More stylish than regular tennis shoes. Also able to put my orthotics in them.

These shoes are true to size. I was a bit skeptical of buying them because not everyone has the same idea of "wide width" but Zappos has an excellent return policy. Needless to say I am pleased with these shoes and I'll more than likely buy another pair.

I am required to wear black shoes for work. I am on my feet most of the day and would recommend these shoes if you do not require a lot of arch support.

At first, I wasn't sure about this shoe because I usually wear more structured sneakers. But I generally love New Balance, and liked the way these looked. First, they make my feet look smaller than they are, which I like. And, they are really comfortable. I like the grey suede.

Bought these shoes for my daughter who is 29 and expecting her first child in four days. She loves them and has worn them almost every day since Christmas. Thanks New Balance for making a great tennis shoe.

These are the lightest and most comfortable shoes that I have ever worn! I don't know about the shoe's arch support because I put in my own and that is working great for me.

Very comfortable. Nice change from my usual "stiffer" leather sneakers. They are lightweight yet, supportive enough for all day wear. Purchased them in grey and have received compliments on them.

I didn't want or need a serious sneaker. I was looking for something comfortable and as inoffensive-looking as possible while still providing more support than my Keds. These fit really well, and don't make my foot look huge. The indentation in the back of the shoe and the padding mean no blisters. I wear these without socks and they're incredibly comfortable. They're perfect for my purposes - weight training and physical therapy, but I wouldn't recommend them if you want real athletic shoes.

Cute, comfortable sneakers. I bought these the day before I left for Disney World (risky, I know) and they actually kept my feet comfortable the entire trip. They are light-weight and go well with shorts or jeans.

This is my second pair of the New Balance CW442 - I'd buy another pair in brown, if they had it. These are SO comfortable, and actually fit - and I'm very hard to fit. Highly recommend these shoes.

I'm a small size five and was happy that they ran a little small, as they fit great! I ordered these sneakers because my last pair of sneakers were worn out by the heal and had given me a huge blister. These sneakers were comfortable. However, after walking 2 miles on the treadmill they begin to hurt by my heal and i felt another blister forming. (The borrowed sneakers I used until these arrived did not hurt or cause another blister) Therefore, I am returning these sneakers. If you never had a blister on your heal though, they should be perfectly fine. That is why I still gave them a 5 star rating :)

I chose these NB to replace my worn out old Converse; just needed a basic running around town shoe. I really like these shoes! More support than Converse, very snug, warm and comfortable. I have narrow feet and these shoes have no room to slip around. Nice for me, but I'm wondering if they'd be comfortable for a wide foot.

I love these shoes, I bought them 1/2 size too big thinking they would be wide enough, but they are very comfortable, now I'm looking for them in colors. Great product.

Had been searching for over a year for sneakers that helped my arthritic feet and ankles. These are great, the Earth shoes had a bit too much of the negative heel. Bought three different colors! Size was perfect. Thanks, Zappos, love your site.

I love these shoes. They have a rounded toe compared to Puma Speeders and the like. I usually wear an 8.5 or 9, but needed a 9.5 in this shoe. They are my first pair of New Balance Classics and they won't be my last! They are light weight and comfy, too!

I was actually looking for a classic tennis shoe but couldn't find any with good arch support. I had not tried on this shoe beforehand so was really surprised to order by mail and find a perfect fit. I had to add an orthotic (typical for me) but the shoe is very comfortable, even on a treadmill. And my feet look smaller (I wear size 9) especially with skinny jeans.

I am thrilled with this shoe. It is one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. The shoe fits true to size, so if you plan on wearing "heavy" socks, order 1/2 size larger.

Really super comfortable shoes. Easy to put on and wear. They're perfect for the gym where I don't do a lot of hard impact stuff, but spinning and Jacob's ladder and weights.

These are a great pair of sneakers for walking around, nothing too high impact. I actually bought them because I was looking for "dainty" sneakers I could wear with skirts on my commute to work. I need arch support and my flip flops and flats were starting to wreak havoc on my feet. Frankly I love the comfort of sneakers as well. These shoes don't have much arch support so I bought some arch inserts to go with them. I usually wear a 7.5 but these in 8 fit me well, maybe I had to go bigger because of the arch inserts. I get a lot of compliments on these sneakers, even when I walk into my office wearing them with a skirt or dress! They are also cute for weekend walking around, I recommend them as long as you don't use them for high impact activities.

Loved these shoes. Perfect to wear casually. Not a lot of support but for everyday when your walking is minimal they are the perfect tennis shoe.
