I love these shoes! They're unbelievably comfortable without the "clown feet" appearance of some athletic shoes. Admittedly, I don't use them for running, so I have no idea how they would perform. They are, however, super lightweight and nice looking for knocking around!

Great overall shoe...look great with all types of pants and I'm sure shorts too! May run a tad snug but the all suede pair seem to give with wear.

This is the first pair of shoes that I have had in years that did not require breaking in! They are wonderfully comfortable.

I love these shoes! Stylish and great fit, though I ignored other reviewers and ordered my own size. Had to send them back for a 1/2 size larger, and they fit well(great, fast customer service by Zappos on the return too!) Will use these for everyday casual wear and also for CrossFit workouts, since they are flat (only minimal arch support) and good for weight lifting.

Love these! Super comfortable. I normally wear an 8.5 wide, and ordered that size. However they are a bit too wide. I probably could have gotten away with the M width. They are very lightweight and the perfect color!

Comfortable, cute, low profile -- I've had these shoes for about a month and love them. Was worried they wouldn't fit my wide feet, but they work perfectly.

These shoes are weightless. After I exercise, I usually take off my workout shoes, not these shoes. I find myself keeping them on without thought. The support is good, and the appearance is not clunky. New Balance has the best shoe of all kinds. Made in America.

Brands I'd also recommend: We only buy New Balance

This is the second pair of New Balance Classics CW442 that I have bought. The first pair is black and I loved them. I thought if I liked these so well I should get another for regular wear, the grays. Thank you.

These are well made, fairly comfortable shoes. They do not provide much arch support, however.

I love these shoes! They are super cute. I am usually a 7.5 or 8, and I ordered a 7.5, and they fit fine. These shoes were definitely not made for wide feet though. They are snug but not to the point of being uncomfortable.

I've been looking for attractive black sneakers for years. I have trouble with most brands other than New Balance, and I am very pleased with these. They felt a little funny when I first put them on, but I'm on my feet all day and wore them all day the first day I thought them very comfortable. They're cute and have a moderate amount of support. They are not meant for walking long distances... don't buy them as walking shoes. But to wear with black jeans to school or to work or whatever, yeah!

I love this shoe, even though it is a trifle big. I ordered the size I always do for a New Balance clog, and should have gone smaller. But these are cute and comfortable enough.

I wear these 8 hours a day, standing, walking, moving and taking care of patients. These shoes are super lightweight, comfortable, and my feet haven't hurt in them yet... Even when everything else does. Thanks Zappos and New Balance!

I love these sneakers! They were recommended by Stylist Rachel Zoe in her newsletter, and I'm so glad I purchased. They are thin and lightweight and comfortable (not bulky like a regular New Balance sneaker). True to size. Look so great with yoga pants. Feminine with a little edge!

I love the way the shoes hug my narrow feet when laced. I have high arches, so I wear arch supports, and doing that makes the shoes perfect for my feet.

I bought my first pair in brown because I wanted to match several outfits for the summer and thought they were cute. When I realized how comfortable they were I had to purchase a pair in grey as well! I am a little bummed that New Balance is not making them any longer. I have flat feet so I really cannot give an accurate rate on arch support.

Love these shoes! I ordered a 1/2 size up from my usual, and they fit great. They're comfortable & have good support for wearing all day (and I'm on my feet a lot). I recommend them!

I really like these shoes. I like the way they look on my feet. They make my size 12 dogs look like puppies! I purchased these shoes to wear while I work in my house. I did not purchase them to exercise in, because if I did, then I would have been greatly disappointed, because they would not provide me with that kind of support. However, for shoes to wear around the house, or to do some shopping in, then these shoes would fit the bill. If you have a wide foot, then I could see where these shoes might cause comfort problems. I have a normal width foot and I had to loosen the shoelaces for comfort. Other than that, I really like these shoes. I also liked the price and you can't beat Zappos!
