Buying shoes has always been a hassle because I wear 4E. If I find something that fits, it is usually ugly. When I found out about Zappos, I was hesitant to try a mail order approach. The free shipping back if they didn't fit convinced me it was worth a try. I was amazed. I found good looking shoes that fit and never had to send anything back. No more shoe stores for me! Zappos is my shoe store from now on.

Wow -- these are my new favorite shoes. Sort of a cross between a boot and a sneaker, perfect for long walks on the old sidewalks of Savannah. I'm sure I'll be getting another pair.

I work on the trading floor and spend about half my day on my feet, so any footwear tends to quickly wear out no matter what the brand or style. These shoes are snug without being tight. They have a firm feel when worn, even with a cushy interior. I use custom arch supports for high arches and they fit without disrupting the feel or fit of the shoe, which is rare when using orthotics. My only complaint is that the shoe gets too warm, even when worn with thin socks.

They fit comfortably. My last pair became my shoe favorite for the past three years. I use arch supports so the shoe support became irrelevant.

Great fit, comfortable from the first time I put them on. Gave then a real workout on the Boardwalk at VA Beach! Sizing was right on, quality workmanship and real comfort.

These are an extremely well fitting and comfortable walking shoe. I walk with my dog on back roads and through dry fields and it is comfortable and with no toe pinching for a guy with a wide 4E foot. Holds up well and looks good too.

Well-made shoes! The quality of workmanship is apparent. I have been wearing New Balance walking shoes for about 3 years and have been impressed with how long they lasted. I'm sure these will be as tough! A good value!

Surprising combination of sturdy and cushiony. Much more sturdy and protective than I expected. Nice thick sole. Yet soft and comfy. Would be good for casual hikes in the woods. Smaller toe box than my NB 574s. Also a little smaller overall than my NB 574s. Right out of the box (without any breaking-in) I wore these every day for my week-long European trek. I have very sensitive feet (I have Plantar Fasciitis). These shoes felt great (I added my own arch supports -- Birkenstock Blue Footbed). But they are a little warm during the summer.

This is my third pair of these shoes and I will continue to buy them. In a word - they fit. Each time they are a little different but still the same--useable out of the box and sturdy shoes.

My experience with buying shoes from Zappos has been nothing short of rewarding. I hate to go shopping for shoes. Stores never have my size (13 EEEE) and if they do, never my style. My experience at Zappos has been great. One time I accidentally ordered the wrong size. They were extremely accommodating. I returned my shoes and had replacements 2 days later. No questions, no hassle. No gas, no postage, no aggravation. It's the way to shop, no question!

from KCMO

These shoes are exactly what I was looking for. I have a long, wide foot with other "issues", i.e. flat feet. These shoes are true to size and the wide is wide. They are comfortable and my inserts fit nicely. I like and want white, but would like some slightly different styling to choose from (different color?). I have bought this style before.

I have been wearing NB shoes for years and began to to realize they were beginning to pinch my feet. I guess gravity was finally beginning to take hold because after switching to a wider shoe they are as comfortable as previous NB shoes.

I am very happy with these shoes and wear them nearly every day. They're comfortable, seem well made, and resistant to marring and discoloration. I was also very pleased with Zappos accurate filling of my order and very quick shipment. I intend to use them exclusively in the future for my online shoe orders.

I tried and exchanged many (5) training shoes. I needed space for my toes and most of them are getting narrow in front and do not fit. I bought the shoes for gym workout not for running (I have running shoes fr that) and not for walking so I needed solid support for weight lifting, stairs climbing and such. These are a prefect fit and highly recommended. I could not have done it without Zappos excellent no cost return policy. You can find these shoes a bit cheaper elsewhere but you can not try five of six of them over time and get the perfect fit for you.

This is a good pair of shoes, but don't trust Zappos' sizing chart. Chart told me I needed size 15+ so I ordered 15 (I had been wearing 14). But 15 was too large so I exchanged for 14. The chart is just wrong. But the free shipping both ways is a great service! Let's me try them on. I will definitely shop Zappos again.

These fit fabulously. They are comfortable, as well. I tried most every New Balance walking and training shoe. This model is by far the very best for problem feet. I bought the brown, also, and use them for hiking. You cannot do any better for a 200 pound guy aged 73. These are the greatest!

I've used the New Balance cross-trainer for everyday use for several years now. This is my third pair. It has great arch support and cushioning. Because they're black, when I keep 'em clean I can even get away with wearing it at work.
