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 needed a work shoe for walking on concrete and gravel. They are perfect! I wear them every day. I wear a heavier footsie.

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.

Customer service is excellent and I love the sense of humor which accompanies each transaction. The wide selection is helpful and the solid shoes are fantastic. I needed a shoe that could take a wedge because my one leg is shorter than the other. Perfect shoes.

I am completely happy with these shoes. I order New Balance in 1/2 size larger than other shoes and they are a great fit with great support and comfort. I was replacing 811's and find them to be very close to the same shoe.

I have bilateral Ankle-Foot Orthosis. My leg braces extend under the foot and I have a wide foot already. I find the New Balance WW812 are wide enough to fit everything in. The roomy box toe means my toes are not squished or curled. This is my go-to shoe.

After bunion surgery on both feet, I bought a pair of New Balances. They were very comfortable. I needed a new pair because the other ones were getting old so I bought the 928s. Reviews mentioned about the heel being high. I wasn't sure what that meant but after wearing my new ones, I realize that it meant that the heels were more shallower. I can feel my heel slip a but it's not to the point that it interferes with my comfort. It's okay but I wish they were like the other ones I had. Still...I'd give it an excellent rating.

Purchased these for my very stylish 84 year old mother! She is a little unstable on her feet so we wanted something with a lot of support that didn't look clunky! She is very satisfied with these tennis shoes and she loves the fact that they don't make her look old!

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 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 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.
