I really like these shoes, except for the fact that the sole is peeling off from the back. After about three months of use, on both shoes the last two weeks or so of the sole has for no discernible reason separated itself from the rest of the shoe. This is vexing not only because I'm going to have to find some cement of some sort to fix the issue, but also because I've come to rely on New Balance to deliver good-fitting shoes that last.

This shoe is good for working out in the gym, but I personally don't like them too much for power walking & jogging. They're not good at all for those types of workouts. It's definitely good at the gym, but not on the treadmill.

Looks great, very comfortable. Would be great for lots of activities if it weren't for the standard problem with New Balance shoes - the various materials laminated together to make up the sole separate and don't hold together. In the 1 month I've owned these the dark blue of the sole has almost entirely separated from the white part of the sole on one shoe and it is starting on the second shoe. Other than walking across the parking lot, all the wear has been in our house, a few trips to stores around town, and 3 racquetball games. I'm just really sad Zappos requires you to send returns back in the original box as one of the children was helpful in cleaning and through away the empty cardboard box. You might get lucky and mine was just a quality control issue, but I've seen it with too many New Balance shoes. They nail the comfort and style categories, particularly for people who want more of a box toe than a pointy little elf shoe...but oh why can't they get it the glue issue figured out.

Fit is spot on. Quality seems good. The sole is crap! Actually dangerous for walking on wood decks, docks, logs and other semi hard surfaces. In wet conditions they slip off the pedals in my truck! The soles are just too hard.

Brands I'd also recommend: Bare feet.

I have worn cross-trainers from New Balance for years and have always loved them. The most recent pair I received had the entire sole of the right shoe peel off after 3 months of wear. There appeared to be very little adhesive applied. I'm used to much better quality from NB shoes, so hopefully this is not an indicator of how they are making shoes these days.

Brands I'd also recommend: Looking for replacement brand as I have always worn New Balance.

I really like everything about these shoes, except that they're falling apart after only a few months. The rubber sole on both shoes is pulling away from the heel -- looks like a design problem, perhaps, but it's very disappointing.

My husband loves these shoes. They're comfortable and have a simple (exterior) design...no crazy colors. He has what I lovingly refer to as Fred Flintstone feet and these shoes are wide enough (4E) to accommodate his feet. We have ordered these shoes repeatedly. I hope NB doesn't stop making them.

I bought these for my 84 year old Dad. He does a lot of yard work, and wears sneakers every day. He chose these out of 3 pairs I bought him (others were Brooks and another NB pair that had high ratings). He especially likes that they have good traction and tread on the sole. A lot of the cross trainers and sneakers older folks wear do not have great tread, which worries me, so I'm glad these worked for him. He also has sensitive feet and skin, and said these don't pinch or rub. He wears a wide, despite not having very wide feet. He also likes that they're not 100% white, and have the blue detail. He thinks 100% look like old people shoes.

This is an excellent shoe. It stays amazingly clean and wears very well. It is a change from the standard white athletic shoe with all the comfort and performance of an athletic shoe. I have worn them for over six months and they are great every day shoes.

I love these shoes! They are the typical wonderfully fitting and feeling New Balance Classic Sneaker! I always have two pairs of these great shoes around. A clean pair to wear out and about and the aged older pair that become my knock-around beaters. When my clean pair get dirty, they become my knock-around pair, and a new clean pair are ordered.

Very comfortable shoes. I've had the MX608 model before and decided to try the MX608V2 model and it fits very well. New Balance shoes seem to always fit me well.

These shoes are wonderful! I have a lot of problems with my feet. These shoes felt wonderful the first time I put them on, and thereafter. I am planning on ordering these shoes again when this pair wears out.
