Other than the fact that the shoes run a little narrow (I had to order 4E, which was a first), I rate them perfect. They have an unusually flat inner sole that will appeal to some people. I find this offers better balance and comfort than classic running or walking shoes. Great shoes.

Buyer beware! You wouldn't know it from looking at the shoe from the picture, but the heel is lower than the rest of the shoe. This causes your weight to be transferred to your heels where there is little between you and the road. After wearing these shoes, if you have painful heels, you have been warned.

Another New Balance with no arch support. Inserts helped. Will make sure next shoes have better support.

These are great shoes! I wear them for working out. They are too heavy to be used as running shoes, but they offer great support.

These shoes broke down so fast, I can't believe it. I pronate with my right foot and with these shoes, after just three months, I can no longer wear them. The soles wore out just so unbelievably fast, and I always wear them hiking in rural areas, especially on grassy surfaces. Pass on these.

I've owned at least 10 pair of New Balance shoes but these shoes seems to be tighter in the area where your toes are. Sore feet wearing these.I had no problems in the v2 shoe.The sole seems to slip on wet floor.

I think that NB has improved this shoe style over the last few years, and made it a better product. I am a big man 6'5", 320lbs, with some major foot issues, as well as being hard on my shoes. This shoe seems to be as good as it gets. I wear a 16 EEEE, and an ankle support on my right foot. The shoe handles this very well.On an other note, I am not aware on any shoe company with faster, no hassle service, anywhere. If you have never experienced the service of this company, I encourage you to step up, get what you need, fast, and friendly, at fair prices.

At the time I ordered two pairs of New Balance sneakers in hopes that one would be fine. Since I wear a size 14W its a bit difficult to always find the right fit but these sneakers were great, from the time I put them on they fit like a glove and that was with thick white socks. I wore then around the house first for about two hours and they were just as comfortable two hours later as they were when I first put them on. These sneakers are among the greatest.

These were a gift for my son. He has a hard time finding sneakers that are comfortable and that fit properly. He wears a size 16. He always finds New Balance to be the right sneaker for his needs. I'm happy they make his size. Price was great too. He loves them.

Good quality shoe for my wide-width 13 year old son. We got him a pair of these when school started in the fall, and just got a new pair, the same exact model.

My husband will only wear New Balance. He wears a 12.5 4E. He's never had a problem before, but he could barely get his foot in this shoe. This particular model runs extremely narrow.

I've worn New Balance shoes for more than 20 years. These are the worst and most uncomfortable of any I've purchased. They are very heavy and just don't measure up to my past experience with this brand. If I could find well made extra wide shoes of a different brand, I'd switch in a heartbeat.

Have been wearing 608's for 20+ years. These were 1/2 to one size smaller than 608 or 608V2. Poor size or quality control. Have to re-order. Waste of my time & Zappos time.

I purchased the Grey 4E width shoe and was extremely happy with the fit and feel of the shoe. Unfortunately 60 days later the shoe started to fall apart. The right shoe lost one of the fabric loops that the lace goes through, and the left shoe lace pulled through the leather eyelet. I loved the feel of this shoe when I bought it, but the quality of the product was not up to my past experience with New Balance.

I bought these sneakers for my 69 year-old father who did not own or wear sneakers. He always wore boots. But because he has flat feet and arthritis in one foot, I knew that he needed a more comfortable shoe. He usually doesn't like new things, but he actually likes these sneakers. I have the same pair for women and they are very solid, supportive and comfortable. He's very happy with them and finally decided to retire a pair of his old boots that had no support or comfort. Small strides.

My husband has trouble finding shoes as he is a size 16. We've ordered these shoes at least three times in the past several years. They fit well, last and are true to size. And, of course, Zappos speedy delivery always makes the purchase even better.

I buy these for my husband. He's had a hip replacement and some shoes just don't seem to work for him. He was wearing these before. The rubber tread stays "rubbery" and doesn't get hard and slick as the shoes get older, and they wash well.

This is by far the most comfortable pair of New Balance shoes that I own. From the minute that I put them on, very stable and easy to walk in. Best ever! I wear a 11.5 E and they were true to size and width.

Bought size 12 again and this time they fit perfectly. Last year they were tagged as 12 but were uncomfortably short. I get about 2 years good casual wear, then shift them to "yard work" and buy a new pair!

I wear a size men's 7 and always have trouble finding what I want in my size. With Zappos I simply go online pick out what I want and it is here. For me the product itself may not save a lot of money but it saves me a lot of time and money driving around trying to find something in my size.

Nice shoe, well stitched, comfortable, yet not quite the tread I would want for dirt path hiking. Crosstrainer? Maybe best for city treks. Yet my first pair of New Balance, I would definitely buy their brand again.
