Zappos sent this product in fast time and it is exactly what I ordered. I plan to use Zappos again and again in the future. These shoes are for a daughter who needs them for work. A local shoe store carries them but did not have the color available would get them from another store and call me. I am still waiting for the call. Zappos is just great.

I have worn the WW 811 shoes for many years.It is the only shoe that fits my foot and gives me good balance. I have tried two different WW 812 and they both break across my toes in the wrong place and I get rubbing on my toes that is very uncomfortable. Could you PLEASE bring back the WW 811?

Brands I'd also recommend: New Balance is my only choice up until now. If the WW 811 is not available I don't know what I will

I was under the impression from reading other reviews how great these shoes felt. It has been frustrating to have the "tongue" twist sideways from where it should be. I walk about a mile most days and find the shoes slip even when the laces are tied securely. I bought New Balance because of the tan color and they are made in the USA. Now I wish I had bought another pair of Brooks because they are comfortable and last a long time. I wear orthotics so I couldn't comment on the arch support in these shoes.

I've worn the 811 for years but they've phased it out. I was told the 812 would replace it, but the 6.5 4E in the 812 is not as wide as the 811. I've kept them, but am looking for an alternative. I need the wide shoe with the rounded toe.

Brands I'd also recommend: ?? Still looking. Don't like Propet--they're not as well made.

I have been wearing this shoe for 5 years... dealing with chronic low back issues. I ordered a new pair, and find out it's not leather! Never knew. I have since tried on a number of other New Balance shoes and my back doesn't hurt. I will never buy the 812 again.

Brands I'd also recommend: New Balance 815's and 856's are great!

I wear these for everyday use around the house. I have a wide toe box and a narrow heel. They never hurt my feet. I wear size 7 but I always get these in 7 wide.

The WW812 fits well and is very comfortable thanks to the foam insole. It fits the same as other NB shoes. I got a 12 2A and that's what I usually wear. There is plenty of toe depth for my upturned big toe. I have metatarsalgia (ball of the foot pain) and this shoe solves that problem. I couldn't wear the 811 because it didn't have enough cushioning for the ball of my foot but the 812 is perfect. The heel doesn't slip and my foot is very narrow. Also I have no arch but this shoe has perfect arch support for me. This is a really good shoe and it looks good on my feet. I have already purchased another pair in black.

These shoes are some of the most comfortable shoes I've had in a very long time. The only negative thing I have noticed is that the shoelaces are WAY too long. I'm currently looking to find some shorter laces.

I have been wearing New Balance model 811 for years. The ww812 is even better. I wear them for the neat good looks and because they support my feet if I decide to walk 5 or 6 miles.

I am a very happy new customer of Zappos. The shoes fit perfectly, they came very quickly and the one pair I ordered that didn't fit as well was easily returnable free. I will order again.

I have this same shoe in white in the "clog" style and both are great. The black is a very nice looking shoe to wear with jeans, with the same great support and comfort, but without the scuff marks or athletic look of the white shoe.

Excellent, comfortable walking shoe. I like New Balance because they have size 11.5, which is almost impossible to find in a wide. The shoe is a little heavy but for a walking shoe, it's fine.

Shoe shopping is always a difficult task for me. As a child, I had to wear unfashionable tie oxfords while the rest of my classmates wore fashionable loafers. The heels of the shoes would always slide up and down. Sometimes I would walk right out of the shoe unless the shoe was securely tied to my foot. Until about 15 years ago, I was able to buy narrow width AA shoes from better shoe stores. Then I was told nobody wore narrow shoes anymore, so the stores stopped carrying them. Just to make buying shoes interesting, not only is my foot narrow, the right foot also pronates due to an overly flexible or collapsed arch. This creates more fit problems for the right foot. I have a pair of 811's that I wear a lot. While other people said the 812's were worse, I think they might be better. They have a little more toe room. This is another boring pair of white shoes, but they fit and not not bind or pinch anywhere and they are for work where I am on my feet most of the day. Good arch support. Really good heel stability. Plenty of room in the toes - very important as my toes are not overly narrow and certainly do not point! Fits snug enough to move with my foot, but not so big as to be clunky. A little heavy, but they are leather, not mesh and are not heavy for leather shoes - and as lab tech, I won't have to worry about chemicals or other nasties getting through the mesh and onto my foot.

This shoe is a replacement for WW 811, which I had previously worn. This shoe took a bit of getting used to, but now I'm pleased with the fit.

The shoe was comfotable and a good fit on the second day of wearing. Being made from all man-made materials it is easy to clean. I wear it walking and when I'm on my feet alot. I'm a senior citizen, with large feet, who lives in Birkenstocks for comfort when at home.

My first purchase from Zappos was perfect. The shoes were too big so I had to return them but the whole process went very smoothly. The right arrived and they fit perfectly a little wide but I will remember this my next purchase. I would like to say if you like good service and a wide selection to choose from try Zappos. You will be pleased.
