These are very comfortable shoes with good arch support. You can work on your feet all day in these shoes. I normally wear a 7.5 but had to go up to a 8 in these. Zappos made the exchange easy!

I wear a 12 AA. This V3 version of the 608 is very short -- more like a 10.5 or 11. I have an earlier version of 608 that really is a 12 (or as close as New Balance gets anymore). Unfortunately, New Balance seems to keep shaving off a silly mm every year.

Have bought this shoe model and same size for years. This time, after 15 minutes of wearing them in the house, I started to get a blister on both heels.

These are really wonderful shoes! They provide comfort straight out of the box! I prefer the New Balance 856 (September 2012 version) slightly over these because I have 4A heels (2A forefoot) and low ankles. All Nikes and most Reeboks are cut higher and rub my ankles. I use orthotics so I cannot really rate the arch support. If your forefoot and heel are the same width, you cannot do better than these shoes.

Zappos has the best service and delivery is always quick. The shoes are larger looking than most athletic shoes on the market nowadays, but when you have foot problems and your podiatrist says get these shoes he knows what he is talking about. The fit is good and they are very comfortable to wear for long periods of time.

This is a very sturdy shoe. I have arthritis in my knees and my feet ache at times, but I am very comfortable in these shoes. So comfortable that my feet aren't tired the next morning. I walk a lot regardless of how I feel and these shoes make walking easier.

I am getting ready to buy another pair of these shoes. I spend as much as ten hours a day on my feet on a concrete floor and this is the best shoe that I have found for that in the eleven years that I have worked this job!

It's not the most attractive sneaker out there but the price is right! It is a very sturdy shoe with solid soles. It is fantastic for light hiking especially. It's tough enough that you don't feel rocks underneath, but very comfy and breathable.

I have been wearing various versions of this shoe for more than 10 years. It is great for wide feet and easily accommodates orthotics. It is my go to shoe for comfort and durability. I'm glad that it now comes in more colors.

Super comfortable - great buy! I am middle-aged with neck and back issues; these sneakers are very stable and comfortable. Have worn all day and they provide great arch support. They are a little heavy, but that is expected in a sturdy, comfortable shoe. I did have to send back for half size larger, which sometimes happens with New Balance. I only buy NB; some are size 10 and rest 10.5. Frustrating but oh well! Worth it because I'm so happy with their products!

Best purchase ever. I am wary of tennis shoes since they give me cramps. But these are the most comfortable shoes I have bought in a long time. Shopping at Zappos is a delight and the biggest convenience for those of us who dread going to malls and so forth. Excellent purchase.

These are excellent shoes but the heels were wider than my other medium New Balance shoes. this may not be an issue with those who have wider heels than I do. These are very supportive shoes with good tread.

Loved this shoe, everything about it was great, except my ankle anatomy. 20 years ago I fractured my ankle and now have a pin that juts out from my ankle bone. That little pin rubs against the shoe. It is always hard to tell from the pictures if the sides are too high for me. That is the case with this shoe, it is going back.

I've had the New Balanace 608 before and this new v3 model isn't quite the same. Its still good looking and I'm keeping them, but old version was more comfortable and don't change what's not broken.

I've been wearing a version of these New Balance shoes for a couple of years because I need the lateral stability they provide -- but I wanted something that didn't quite look like a tennis shoe. These were just the ticket! They have the same great feel and support of my old NB cross training shoes, but they have a look more like a something in the Keene/Merrill/or hiking boot category. The New Balance straight "last" is especially good for those who tend to pronate, and my orthotics fit nicely inside. In other words, these shoes accommodate all my stability and support needs, while still looking stylish (for a Saturday shoe).

These shoes are very comfortable. There is not as much cushion as I'd have hoped for, but aside from that it's a good quality shoe. I've started to get back into running and these make a nice difference for me. My feet were big and since childbirth have gotten bigger and a sneaker usually gives me trouble with my foot jamming at the front and squishing at the sides, but the wide size on these works out great!

I compared availability and pricing on the product I purchased. I had just purchased the same product in white but needed black for work. Zappos had the best price I found in addition to free shipping. The order was promised to arrive and did on the date promised. The shoes were true to size and are comfortable. I would shop at Zappos for additional purchases as the result of this experience.

New Balance consistently makes great crosstraining shoes. They are well padded in the toe box as well in the heel. I teach 10-12 group exercise and having perfect fit allows me to teach those classes plus strength train for my own benefit. If you are a serious cross trainer or if you are a beginner who wants to protect your feet New Balance is the shoe for you. Love these shoes.

Very comfortable shoes, light by weight, black by color and look good. I wear the same size of New Balance sneakers for years and these shoes are not an exception. Also, Zappos has a great customer service.

I'm glad I read other reviews before I made my purchase. the shoes are very nice, but the sizing is a bit smaller than I am used to. I ordered mine a size larger, and they just fit. the seam to be a bit narrower than I am used to as well.
