I loved the fit until I stood up to walk. Once I paced on the carpet to see how the shoe felt when I walked, the lack of or the perception of no heel support was disconcerting. My heel sloped backwards. I felt that the heel needed to feel like a regular heel in a shoe. I chose to return the shoes (bought white and black) rather than deliberately sabotage my joy. I really rely on the ball of the foot, bunion area, and toe are for maximum comfort. This shoe gives it; it is just the lack of heel support that made me send them back. Overall, I would recommend the shoe for folks with sensitive feet. It is comfortable, and the style is not hard on the eye. I'm just stuck on the heel discomfort when I walked.

These shoes seemed comfortable at first, but after working 3 12 hour shifts in a row my feet were very sore. Not enough arch support and caused my feet to pronate putting pressure on my big toes.

These are so comfortable. I put them on and knew immediately that I would keep them. Nice wide toe box. True to size for New Balance, which I think runs a half size small. I wear my orthotics in these.

Love these shoes! Ordered more colors. I have a narrow foot and these fit like a gloe and are super comfortable. Grab them while you can. As always, Zappos delivers with speed. Many thanks to the hard work put in by the warehouse workers.

These shoes are very comfortable and lightweight. I ordered them in wide based on some of the other reviews and I'm glad I did as the wide is not very wide. So I wouldn't recommend these shoes for someone with a very wide foot. Otherwise they fit and look great. I walk long distances in these shoes and my feet never bother me.

These are absolutely the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. I walk about 8 miles a day, and I'm on my feet all day at work. These shoes have completely eliminated blisters, cramping, and back pain! In addition to the comfort they offer, they look cool too! I didn't think much of them from the photos, but they look much sharper in person. I especially like the soles- very 8-bit!

Shoes are light weight and yet so supportive. They are great and very bareable after a long hard day. Color choices are very nice also.

All I can say is wow, these are so comfortable! I got the Komen Pink in a size 12 D. I am a walker and I was concerned about the sole holding up to all my walking so time will tell. They have some arch support but I wear orthodics so that should not be a problem for me. Size felt perfect. Nice and light. No need to wear socks. Love the color, nice and bright pink!

Very comfortable, true to size. This is a very lightweight shoe. The only problem I am having is that there isn't much heel, and I am used to more heel in a walking shoe.

I was led to believe these were supportive enough for over pronators, no way! The have no support at all on the inside. Also no arch support. They are cute, really light, but not for us pronators!

Comfortable but they look like two tone clown shoes. I didn't pay sufficient attention to the fact that they are two tone in the worst way. Plus, the tongue is attached on one side and stands up -- it's not a good look. Back they go.

Wow, these shoes are so super comfortable. I walk approx 2 miles per day on a treadmill with them and my feet feel wonderful. I just LOVE the sole of these shoes, no stress on the bottom of my feet and the shoes are lighter than air. I find myself wearing them around the house after working out without wanting to take them off for slippers! I don't require a huge arch support and actually arch supports bug my foot, so maybe these wouldn't fit the bill for someone who needs the extra arch support. I love the vibrant pink color too.

I love these shoes! I bought them to walk in Europe where I didn't want to wear a big sneaker. These did not disappoint. I use my own inserts in them and my feet are soooo happy!

I have painful Plantar Fasciitis and heel spurs. I bought these shoes because the reviews said they are comfortable. They are very comfortable and perhaps the lightest shoes I've ever worn. I liked them so much that I bought them in two other colors. I wear them with heel inserts and can finally walk without pain.

I love this sneaker. So light and comfy! Unfortunately, it's been discontinued and replaced with a different model that, in my opinion, is not as comfortable. I first ordered in white/grey and loved them. I came back to order more to find that it's no longer available and the only available color was blue. New Balance confirmed that it been replaced with a different model. I'm sad.

Shoes came exactly as described, pretty fast, and great value. Very comfortable. I love them! I love New Balance because I have narrow feet but a wide toe box. If you do not, these might not be the brand/shoe for you. I tried New Balance on in a store for the first time - that's how I knew they fit my foot so well. Now I can order from Zappos without a second thought.

I am 60 years old and these are the best tennis shoes I have ever owned. I wear them for walking and casual wear. They are the first New Balance tennis shoes I have ever owned. I have chronic sciatica and SI joint pain - these shoes have helped me to be able to walk longer and farther. I get compliments about the striking blue neon colors all the time (more of a turquoise). I wear an 8 1/2 wide and the 8 1/2 D sizing was spot-on. They are the most comfortable shoes I have ever put on my feet. I like these so much that I'm planning to purchase a couple of more pairs and put away because styles change so quickly.

I love this shoe! Very comfy and light weight. It will pack very well, taking much less space than other athletic shoes. If it holds up to use I won't go back to "sturdier" styles

These shoes were a wonderful shock. I was searching for a light weight alternative to my running shoes. I now have shoes that fit well and my feet honestly feel like they are on the proverbial cloud even after standing through a three hour dress rehearsal the day before a choral concert. I have also received compliments on the style too!

These are so amazing that I had to buy another pair - one for work and another for home! They are light and yet protective and very well designed - it's as if they were made just for my feet! After years of making do with other brands, this shoe is the answer!

These shoes are great! I hate socks, but always wear them with tennis shoes when I work out...until these. I found that thin no-show socks slipped while wearing these, so I tried them without socks and they ended up being incredibly comfortable. And, after plenty of sweaty workouts, they dont stink! I ordered wide and they fit perfectly. Not to mention they're super cute!

Since these were New Balance I did order them a half size bigger and they fit perfect! I usually wear 9.5 narrow, and the 10 narrows I put on and walked my usual 3 miles and could have gone further. They are very light and I love that the bottom of the shoe is smooth bumps, so I don't track little rocks into the house.
