These are excellent shoes but if you have bunions and/or use orthotics, these may not be for you...at least until you "break them in."

I love this shoe! I have very wide feet and have trouble getting shoes that fit-this one does. I live in these shoes. I just wish they were available in bone in EEEE width!

I have been wearing these shoes for many years, ordering a new pair when the old ones are so beat up they get relegated to yard work. I love the comfortable fit (roomy toe box) and the nice looks of the shoes. Personally, I like more arch support than they (or most shoes)provide, so I replace the insoles with Spenco Full Arch Cushion insoles.

I have always worn these NB walkers. I could not find the number of my shoes and Zappos is so good they knew the shoe and the new number for NB...

I am hard to fit and because of foot problems, I have to wear orthotics. The New Balance shoes fit perfectly and are extremely comfortable with excellent support. One of its best features is that it is made in the USA, which is my first criteria for finding shoes. Hopefully, New Balance will continue to make this shoe for many, many years.

These are really good shoes. I walk to work and probably logged over 1000 miles before there was signs of wear on the interior. The exterior finish never showed wear and after two winters, without polish, they still looked like new. Just bought a second pair.

I was use to wearing the New Balance W811 which they no longer make. I had to switch to WW812 due to some foot surgery. I find these shoes very comfortable and they look as nice as the W811. Would recommend them to anyone with a wider toe size, especially if you have nuropathy. I also have a black pair. Sue from CA

A friend recommended these for my trip to Italia - what a score. Added an arch support and walked all over Rome and Florence and in between. Turned 70 and felt like 60 in the end - and I lost 8 lbs in two weeks.

Great everyday walking shoe. Excellent fit, but best of all is the comfort and support. Put them on in the morning and I can go about a busy day easily.

This is a very comfortable shoe with good arch support. Retail stores carry almost no shoes in narrow sizes, so I ordered these based on faith and your good return policy. But you can't have them back. I love them!

First order with Zappos-Easy, fast delivery, competitive price,great web site. I've been wearing this NB style and brand in hard to find narrow width w/ Superfeet insoles (PH) for a few years to do 3 mile daily "mall walk" and most other activities. Great comfort, washes up easily after outdoor work, too. Color is nice departure for this old girl from white or black nerd shoes to go with khakis and summer linens. Color better in person than in photo.

I bought these for a trip with son and his family. I spent several hours walking and they felt good. The fit was as expected and the toe box was wide enough.

These shoes are absolutely the most comfortable! I have had at least half a dozen pairs. They are also made in America! Ordering them from Zappos is perfect. They arrive within days without special shipping costs -- free!

These shoes are awesome! I'd previously worn the NB 811 and when I didn't see them offered tried a different style which was perfect for my right foot. But the left foot has a bit of an issue and so I did more research. Found that NB has different styles for different foot issues and thus learned that this 812 had replaced the 811. So glad I did as it has made a huge difference. Was very surprised how quickly they came which was a blessing as I was hurting and also planning a short vacation. Thank you NB and Zappos! Also note plenty of room for my own orthotic.

These shoes are supportive but not at all lightweight and clunky, It felt like I had two weights attached to my feet. I am sure some people might like this but for those looking for something lightweight don't buy this pair of shoes

This shoe has great support, and the fact that Zappos carries narrow is really a bonus for me. The shoe does tend to pronate however.Customer service is wonderful too.

I needed a supportive, comfortable shoe for standing for long periods of time. This fits the bill. Toe box area is roomy. Arch support is just enough. I have learned in wearing New Balance I have to go a half size larger with this brand. I will probably order a second pair when needed. Most important is there's no backache or foot pain at the end of the day.

This is a good pair of basic black shoes. The style is not too "Clunky," like some others I've bought. The foot bed is hard, though, so some cushioning inserts are needed.
