I was so excited to see this style available in wide, but the shoe felt cheaply made and boxy. Also, the base didn't feel very wide, despite the wide width.

Too narrow for a "wide" width and doesn't feel supportive enough for activity (zumba/dance).

These are great everyday sneakers that are stylish enough as sneakers go. I have narrow feet, and these were easily tied tight enough to accommodate that. Ideally I am usually an 11½, but the 12 was perfect.

This is my second pair of New Balance Classics. They are lightweight and have thinner soles which gives them a non clunky look. Yet they are comfortable for walking my dog or walking the treadmill.

My new everyday sneaker!! Casual and comfortable, roomy toe-box. I can get away with wearing these to work since they are all black; they don't stand out like most sneakers.

These are sooo comfortable! Super cute and have gotten many compliments. My normal tennis shoe size is 8.5 and shoe size 8. I originally got 8.5 and it was too big. Now have 8 and it's perfect! So go with your reg shoe size not running shoe.

Some of the most comfortable shoes I own. I teach, so I'm on my feet a lot. These are a nice low profile; not a clunky gym shoe. My first pair of New Balances, but definitely not my last. Worth the price, and true to size. I wear a 7.5 in nearly every shoe, and same with this one. Do not have one thing about these that I would change!

Very cute and comfortable right out of the box. I've been looking for a casual sneaker just for errands, weekend wear, etc. and these are perfect. They don't make my foot look huge. I will say that I think they may run slightly narrow, but that is ok for me since my foot tends to be between a narrow and medium width depending on brand.

Very comfortable. I was looking for a walking shoe for my upcoming vacation. These are cute and stylish, without being bulky like running shoes.

Very comfortable shoe. I get compliments every time I wear them. As someone who has larger but thin feet (size 11). I appreciate a good tennis shoe that is comfortable, supportive, but doesn't make my foot look really wide.

Great everyday walking or casual shoe. It's not as bulky as a walking shoe, but has much more support than cute sneakers. They're still new, so I don't know how long they'll last, but I walked 8 miles in them yesterday and have no complaints.

Love these shoes! They give you the classic look of New Balances for a low price. I have big feet (size 11) and they make them look small and narrow. They are very comfortable for walking, but not supportive enough for exercise.

I bought the same pair, different color, months ago in Cleveland and I have worn them constantly walking 4 miles/day. They are the lightest in weight and most comfy tennies I have ever owned.

Cute shoe! I own a different pair of New Balance in an 8.5 but these were to small in an 8.5, I will have to exchange for a 9.

This has shoe has been a favorite. It's light weight and so comfy. After two years of wear and tear I still can't depart with them. I bought mine on sale for $20.00 and can't find them anywhere else for that or I'd buy another.

These shoes are the most comfortable tennis shoes I have ever worn. I have problems with my feet and haven't had any since I started wearing them. I bought them in the black suede and the white leather. Just love them and love their slimmer profile as well.

I adore these sneakers! Not only are they super cute, they fit perfectly right out of the box and are light and comfy. Almost feels like wearing slippers. Can you say I feel like dancin'? Another satisfactory experience from Zappos.

Trust New Balance to be true to size and a well-made (in USA) shoe. My feet do have problems, but these shoes are well cushioned and very comfortable even for hours on my feet. Great price too.

So awesome. Super comfortable and not bulky at all. The laces are pretty weak, though, I imagine they will fray much faster than the shoe.
