I would love you to make these shoes in brown. The black ones look so institutional. The tan ones look ok with my khakis, but I would like a brown pair to wear with jeans. The heel is very high, particularly on this shoe. I am tall, and would rather not wear shoes that make me look so much taller.

These are good. They break in easily, but they seem to lose the support and cushioning within six months. I am ordering a new pair.

I purchased these shoes because I usually wear the New Balance 1123. I have PF and the 1123 is the only shoe that helped with my PF. People at work get all bent out of shape because I get to wear white athletic shoes with a Dr. prescription so I thought I would try these so they were at least black. After a podiatrist told me that the 1123 and the 927 were similar with a few differences I decided to try it. I have duck feet, wide in the toe area and narrower in the heels. With this shoe it is pretty evident that the width on the front dictates the heel width, even in the women's shoe. If you order a wide it is wide all the way back. They are much clunkier than the 1123 so I sound like a buffalo when I walk, and they are heavier, but if I can get them tight enough around the ankles they are not to bad. In the 1123 I can wear both the wide and the double wide, so in this shoe I ordered the extra wide. Since the heel is so wide I am going to return it and try just the wide width. When all is said and done I would say they are clunky and need to be narrower in the heel for women, but they allow plenty of toe room in the toe box and allow for you to put in your good orthotic inserts.

These shoes work very well for walking and exercise, but with the cushioned socks I usually wear, they feel tight in the toes. The arch support is good, but not quite as good as the New Balance shoes they had replaced.

Very sturdy. Sole doesn't bend. Walk, jump, but don't run in these. Buy larger than your normal size, in both directions though. They run small, particularly in width. My orthotics fit.

I love these shoes and wear them often. I wear an orthotic support and these shoes accommodate it very well. The only reason I gave the shoe 4 stars overall is because they do stain easily and I have not been able to find any good cleaner.

This was the third sneaker I bought in three months. Instead of trying those other brands I should have stuck with New Balance. Very comfortable fit. Could use more support in the arch.

A bit too deep even with orthotics. The sides irritated my ankles. I wear them with heavy wool socks which makes them bearable.

They are great for orthotics and a good all around walking shoe. I walk about 8 hours a day and they work good for me. I like the tan suede color. True to size.

These shoes are attractive in their simplicity and flexibility of use. The stability of the soles is great. I wear a brace on one leg and use an orthotic on the other. These shoes accommodate all of my attachments.

I needed a shoe with good arch support that included my orthotics. These work fine. However, I am a little concerned that the suede finish may not be as stain resistant as the Ecco shoes I have worn. Also, the heels seemed a little wide for my feet.

This is my third pair of New Balance. This time I ordered a pair slightly different from the others. I find that they are a little narrower than the other styles. But I really like them and will be ordering more from New Balance in the future.

Runs larger than other 8W sneakers I've owned, but I got some thicker socks to wear in the winter & with those, the shoes fit better & are comfortable. I will not buy these again as I think they should be better-fitting & more cushioned for the price.

After bunion surgery went wrong, I've been looking for shoes that can help alleviate the fallen arches and other problems I've developed. These didn't help. No support whatsoever, even extra inserts didn't help. Wish I had better news.

With all the good reviews this shoe has gotten, I decided to try it instead of my regular NB WR1123. It has the same roll bar technology and I'd be saving money. It was a mistake. After wearing it a couple of days, it began rubbing on the inside and outside of my right ankle bones. I put in heel cups and that has helped. It also feels snug across the top of the feet. I'll be going back to my MB WR1123. Although it's a running shoe, I've found it perfect for walking my daily 3 miles. I might add I always buy a 7 instead of my normal 6-1/2 in New Balance; they run small.

I needed work shoes that would stay supportive and be comfortable, so I was willing to shell out the cash for these. The comfort factor was there, but after only five months I had a hole in them. I have had Payless shoes last longer than that. This was very disappointing.

The heel was too loose when I got the width correct for my wide foot, so back they went. I love Zappos return policy!

It looks good in the picture, but to me the sneaker looks like nurses shoes on my feet. They are heavy and not what I thought they would be at all. They are comfortable as far as going for walks, but not for daily walking in general around the house. So if you like a good walking sneaker, yes, they're good, but for me, because they are a bit pricey, I expected more of a multipurpose sneaker/shoe. I expected a lot more from this product.

This shoe is okay...just okay. It doesn't have much support or cushioning, but it is okay to wear as a casual shoe.

I'm returning these. I have worn NB running shoes for years, but I did not like the fit of these at all; maybe because I'm not used to a walking shoe.
