These are very comfortable. They did not need a breaking in period. I got them for the gym, walking the treadmill. They are not very stylish but are easy to get on and off and have a wide toe box. They are very good shoe for these old feet. The Velcro straps are a big plus.

I wear a 6-1/2 to a 7, ordered a 7 and it was too short, not a great fit all the way around for me and a little old lady looking. Had to return, but love Zappos! They make everything so easy!

Shoes are attractive and comfortable. I have a narrow footprint, but a high arch, so I would like a longer tab on the velcro strip; otherwise, I am very much pleased with the fit. I buy New Balance shoes because I can get a narrow width.

I like the fit of this shoe except for the Velcro closing. I have a high instep, and the strap across my foot does not fully cover the Velcro. About a 1/2 inch of the Velcro is exposed. From past experience, this creates a fraying of my pant leg as it rubs against the Velcro. I am returning and will order the lace-up if I can get it in my size.

I ordered these shoes for my Mom following a fall she took. She had not bought shoes for herself in over 10 years and wanted the ones with Velcro closures. She could not go out and shop as she broke her pelvis and was restricted to my house. Zappos was amazing! I could show her the choices on their internet page, she selected the ones she liked, and we placed the order, all within 5 minutes. The price was very reasonable, and to my delight (I still do not know how they did this), the shoes arrived on our front door step the following day! They fit well, they help her keep her balance, and they are very light weight. This 92 yr old loves them!

I've had other versions of the New Balance shoe in the past. I'm glad to see that they have started making the Velcro version again, as it sure makes getting through those airport security checks easier.

I wear an 11, Narrow as I can get it.I had to exchange for a 12. New Balance is the only athletic style shoe that comes narrow. I like the Velcro. Can't go back to laces. I buy a pair of these every year for work.

I like these, got them for nursing school. Wanted something that was easy on and off. These are perfect for that and easy to wipe clean and still have a nice athletic look. Comfy with good support.

I love my New Balance shoes with the velcro closures. I ordered these because I was scheduled to have total hip replacement surgery and I thought they would be easy to get on and off. They are so easy! My caregivers and my physical therapist can put them on and take them off with ease! I never ordered athletic shoes with velcro closures before but I would highly recommend them for anyone who is having surgery and will have others helping them rehab post-op. Also my left foot is swollen most of the time and with the velcro it is easy to adjust for the swelling. Thanks again for the great service!

Shoes fit great from day one. I have a very difficult shoe size -6EE. I have sent several shoes back because they just didn't fit right, but New Balance is the best fit for me.

These shoes are very comfortable and I walk a lot on my job as a nurse. It makes it even better that New Balance products are made in the good ol' USA, keeping my fellow countrymen working! This is the second pair of these I have purchased and probably will again.

Just what I wanted--a shoe that I could put on easily for everyday wear, not for major fitness. I needed a square toebox to accommodate my longer 2nd toe, and this shoe has that.

I was unable to replace my favorite New Balance 576 in Bone color with Velcro, so I decided to try 577. I did keep this 577 shoe, but it is not nearly as comfortable. The leather is stiff and the Velcro straps are very short. If shortening the Velcro straps was a cost-cutting measure, I hope it won't happen again.

These are not comfortable, the tongue is not in straight, rather it goes to the side. The straps are not long enough. The 575 was much better.

I found this sneaker puzzling. For one thing, the Velcro strap sits almost on top of the ankle. To try to fasten that strap only goes about 3/4's closed. Though it's Velcro and holds tight, it looks like it's fastened awkwardly. The toe box is huge and almost seems as if there is about 1 inch from the tops of toes other than the big toe. And the noise. When you walk the shoe makes creaking sounds. Though I wanted to keep this shoe because the size for the big toe was OK, the other complaints I wrote have me returning it.

I have ordered twice from Zappos. 1st was 3 types of shoes for a wedding. Sent back 2 styles due to fit. Then I ordered my New Balance shoes. I love the fit & comfort. Zappos return & shipping policies are great. Shoes have always been 1st quality.

These shoes fit true to size. They are very comfortable and especially easy to put on. They are probably the best tennis shoe I have worn. I am planning to order a black pair to wear all winter. New balance makes good shoes.

This is my first time with New Balance. They do run very short in length. However; the price is affordable and in general the shoes are very supportive of weak ankles and problems with balance. They get a big a big plus from me and they will be ordered again. It did take a few weeks to break them in.

Brands I'd also recommend: brooks for balance.... but not for budget

These are great shoes! I was concerned because they are less expensive than others I bought in the past, but they fit and feel great. The SL2 toe and double wide size really helps with my extra long toes, without being too narrow in the heel. I wore these on a trip where I did a lot of walking and also walk 2 miles every day at home. I'm very happy with my purchase.
