The most comfortable shoes I have ever had for work! I am on my feet for long periods of time and it feels like walking on pillows.

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!

This is my 3rd pair of New Balance 442. Great shoe that seems to be hard to get unless you order online. Love these because they are a light and smaller looking tennis shoes. None of that big clunky tennis shoes. Able to just put them on and go, no breaking in. Very comfy. Do run narrow so if you wear a medium width get a wide.

I love, love, love these sneakers. I love the low profile in the back because some sneakers will rub and give me blisters if they are too high. I love their slim, streamlined look. They are comfortable, and you can just throw them in the wash. When I get some birthday money, I'm going to buy the black ones too. I wish they had brown, though!

I love these shoes and have received a lot of compliments on them from people I don't know. I have the grey/silver, and it is a great neutral color and goes with everything. They are very lightweight and comfortable. Definitely a good buy, especially for the price.

Love these shoes, I must, I have bought 5 pairs of them! Different colors of course. These shoes do run a tad small but not enough that it should bother you. The width is right on too. I wouldn't say these shoes are for fitness walking but rather strolling in the mall or light shopping. They are cute, make my size 11 look smaller and are very comfortable. The arch support is acceptable but not as firm as it could be. Overall I would buy more of these if only they would come out with more colors.

I love these shoes! They are awesome for casual wear. My husband got them for me for Christmas last year. I wear them all of the time! They are durable and comfy. I have worn them with jeans, sweats, shorts, etc. They go with just about anything. I even wear them around the house while cleaning, since they're so comfy and light. I've just about worn mine out. May purchase another pair soon.

These shoes are really cute and comfortable, but they do run small. I would suggest getting the next size up from what you would normally wear. Other than that, they are my favorite shoes I've ever had!

My all time favorite shoe! This is the fourth pair I have bought. Why do I continue getting the same shoe? Well, it is like the most comfortable ever. Easily bend from heel to toe and if you get the all suede it will stretch a little as you wear them. I made that mistake by buying a 9 instead of 8.5 once. The 9 is too large now. You won't be sorry selecting this shoe. When I lace up this shoe gives me much arch support and reminds me of lacing ice skates, tighter for more support. You won't be sorry buying this most comfortable shoe. Just make certain you order all suede and not the suede/canvas since the canvas doesn't give.

Brands I'd also recommend: Sarcony, Teva

I love these shoes! This is my second pair. I have the gray suede 7½W. The material is not stiff at all, and it camouflages dirt and general wear and tear really well. The size and width are true to size for me. The arch support is just fine for me, but many people with higher arches may need some kind of arch insert. I can only buy New Balance shoes as they are the only company that sells stylish sneakers for women in wide widths. The sizing is what works well for me as far as New Balance shoes goes.

I wear these shoes to work because they are comfortable and relatively nice looking. One thing to note is that because they have a suede-esque finish, the toes can begin to fade in color if they are rubbed. Overall an excellent shoe and I would purchase another pair in a heartbeat!

This is a great pair of sneakers! I loved these, and I want to buy the same pair again! They are nice-fitting, stylish, and matched everything I wore! However, these are not the best shoes to be jogging or running in everyday! But, they would be perfect for just wearing to school, and walking around in!

I am pleased with these shoes overall. They are exactly as pictured, extremely lightweight and can be paired with most outfits. They do not offer much arch support or a very cushioned foot bed, but I added insoles and they are great. I am even more pleased with Zappos' service, as they complimentary upgraded my shipping, so I received these shoes in two days!

Brands I'd also recommend: Saucony bullet sneakers

My daughter wanted some light feeling shoes to wear to cheerleading practice and school. I think these fit the bill and very stylish too! They do run a size smaller. She usually wears a 4 or 5 and we had to send the 5 back for a 6.

Because I have a narrow foot I was hesitant about purchasing these shoes. The choices for narrow shoes are considerably 'narrow'compared to a 'B' width, which is frustrating! I took a chance and found they fit well and are comfortable and good looking too!

I had been looking for light weight athletic shoes for quite some time. Most athletic shoes feel like cement blocks on my feet. The New Balance Classic is perfect. It's light weight while providing a great deal of support. Please do not ever stop making this shoe.

I adore this sneaker. It is cute, goes with all styles of jeans (except for skinny) and is great to run around in. I wouldn't get this shoe to workout in, it is just for fashion! I have them in the black also.
