from Mt. Pleasant, SC

This is a great looking, comfortable shoe at an excellent price. Its goes well with jeans. The navy is a perfect neutral color. I am very happy with my purchase and will be purchasing more New Balance in the future. I highly recommend this shoe. It has excellent arch support as well. Zappos is awesome, as usual. I ordered this shoe around 3pm and had it the next afternoon. You really can't beat that kind of instant gratification.

Comfortable and cute! I use them with an orthotic insert, though, for working out (elliptical, treadmill, weight training).

These tennies are more comfortable than some sneakers that I have paid twice as much for! Highly recommend. They are good for my averagely high arch and true to size overall. I have even been jogging in them. I generally like the way Adidas fit, so I was surprised to like these so much.

Brands I'd also recommend: Adidas, Puma

Great sneakers for sporty, casual appearance, and the red really works well with blue or black jeans. Usually go with Saucony but decided to try this brand since it has the same look and the insert is able to be removed.

This product arrived really fast! I was planning to wait for a whole week but instead it just took 2-3 days to arrive! I was shocked and I really wanted to rate this company a five star because of the way they worked so fast to ship my pair of shoes here. I think that this company really cares about the way their cuastomers think them and thats a good thing because it shows the customers that even though the company has a lot of customers, they still have time to care about you and your order.

These shoes feel absolutely great! I liked them so much that I bought a second pair. They feel light but are supportive. I might buy a third pair!

I got these shoes to replace my discontinued Saucony Jazz Originals in red, so my review is a bit of a comparison. I feel like these have a higher arch. I have lower arches, but they work OK for me. Overall, they have good support, but I wish there was a little more cushioning in the heel.

It's a comfortable sneaker, and isn't going to knock anybody's socks off in the style department but cute enough to wear in casual environments.

Kayla

from St. Louis

I really loved the purple color of these sneakers, and have been eyeing New Balance for a while. So far so good with these! I would say they run slightly big, but not enough to order down from my usual 9.5 size. I have slightly narrow feet and felt the medium width was fine.

These are classic style new balance sneakers! I wear almost everyday running errands or when I work out. I am a mom and I love having the Black that goes with pretty much anything and I can wear all year round. Can't go wrong!

from Lancaster, PA

These felt comfortable right out of the box. I wear a 6.5 -7 and I ordered a 7. Perfect. I wanted something cute, but I needed something comfortable. I have a few trips coming up and needed sneakers but did not want to look like a mom in sneakers. I bought the black color and they make my usual mom/ sneaker/ legging outfits more updated. I will be buying more of these in other colors.
