I bought these for my 84 year old father who has Alzheimer's Disease and has difficulty tying but wants to walk all the time. They fit right out of the box and he is thrilled with them. I would have ordered white also but they aren't available. it is nearly impossible to buy narrow sizes and then velcro too!

My husband just loves these sneakers. So much so, they he ordered them in white also. And, he has very wide feet, so they do come in extra wide sizes. Zappos, you're terrific!

Great pair of shoes. I wanted the velcro straps so they would make a fast and easy way to "lace" the shoes. Zappos is the only place I could find this type of shoe. Love the bone color. They fit great too.

These shoes felt great right out of the box. I wear orthotics due to foot problems, and these are roomy enough for the orthotics and my high instep. I bought the 2E width, which was perfect for my wider-than-average feet. These are very true to size. The "rollbar" and "walking strike path" features give the shoes stability than you can feel when walking. A great shoe and made in USA!

I bought these for my husband to take on a cruise as an extra pair of casual shoes. They were comfortable right out of the box, and he loved them. He did not wear any other shoes the entire cruise! Zappos gets kudos too for their fabulous customer service.

Shoes arrived next day and had no defects. Shoe size fit me perfectly. Velcro fasteners are great for those with disabilities or hand arthritis. Velcro straps didn't come undone when used all day. I use these shoes only indoors.

Brands I'd also recommend: I only use New Balance.

Quality is good. Felt great right out of the box. Did not need any breaking in. I like that they are not heavy, and the Velcro closure is exactly what I needed as I break in my new Mayo Clinic hip.

This is my husband's 5th pair...comfortable, true to size, coordinates nicely with tan pants - casual but doesn't scream "sneaker". As with all sneakers, the sole and inner structure tends to get worn out after a year of daily use! Yikes - there are none available, we have to wait for a shipment!

Brands I'd also recommend: He won't accept another shoe. Loves the velcro even though it wears...

These are pretty good shoes, but for those of you with very wide feet, be aware - the Velcro fasteners aren't ideal for you. The "hook" stuff on the "lace" isn't long enough to reach the "loop" stuff on the shoe if your feet are wide. When I fasten them, there's only about 2cm of area where the hooks and loops meet. It hasn't been a big problem so far but sometimes they come unfastened because of the small area of connectivity.

These are good, well-built shoes that are sturdy and stable. But New Balance seems to have a hard time in quality control of its sizing. You have to try them on; do not believe what the box says. The Velcro straps are chintzy. I take a rather wide size, and have a thick arch and ankle. Often, the strap is not long enough to hold if I walk at all swiftly. New Balance was my first and nearly only choice for years. They need to address their sizing issues.

Brands I'd also recommend: Brooks walker, P W Minor Walkers

Absolutely one of the stiffest shoes I've ever purchased. Rubbed my foot almost raw the first week, then broke in fine. No cushion on the sole of the footbed. Like the velcro, though.

I purchased these shoes to slip on for yard work, get the paper, etc. Specifically purchased the Velcro model so that it was easy to put on. I fasten the straps for longer chores but just leave them hanging to get the paper, etc. I have a narrow foot and NB has a decent selection plus these are made in the USA. Great shoe, I would recommend to anyone. Of course they might be a bit dorky being Velcro but they function as desired.
