The New Balance MO889, is a good shoe with style. I order a size 12 (4E) in grey/blue it is a slightly narrower tan other shoes, but OK overall.

Brands I'd also recommend: FORD, TOYOTA, VOLKSWAGEN

New Balance have become the only sneaker that fits my feet consistently over the years. So once you know your size... ordering over the internet becomes possible.

Very comfortable sneaker. Fit is true to size. Cushion in shoe is soft but thin and will get packed down over time but the actual sole is what matters which gives great support.

First off, the shoe was at least 1/2 smaller then marked. That happens. What happened next is what set Zappos apart from all the others. I work overseas so Zappos had to send my order to a DPO address. Once I got them and found out they where too small, I thought I was in trouble. First, I can receive mail but I can not send it. Second, as soon as I got the package, I discarded the shoe box. Third, I do not return to the states until July. I contacted Zappos, described my situation thinking I had just lost my money. Not so. Zappos has agreed for at least this time, to allow me to ship the shoes back to them when I get home, in a different box as long as I print the receipt and put it in the box. They will then ship a different pair of shoes to me. That is customer service at its finest. I will continue to shop with Zappos.

These are one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I have ever worn. Amazing. I just got them today and have had them on for a few hours. Can't wait to hike in them! New Balance ftw!

I bought these shoes as a replacement for the now-unavailable 1320GT and was sorely disappointed. The previous stiff sole, narrower toe box, and overall tight fit were gone, replaced by an overly-large toe box and generally looser fit. The New Balance quality seems to be there, but the fit is nowhere near what I was expecting.

I bought these to wear while mowing the lawn. They provide good traction on the hills and when the grass is a little wet. The shoes are comfortable and light. These are much better than regular running/walking shoes for this purpose.

NB is always the brand my husband goes to but these had narrow toe box and the heel slipped so these will be going back. He is a 13D. As always very friendly customer service and free shipping makes it a pleasure doing business with Zappos. Have shopped with them for years.

I don't know what to say, Except this is the best pair of light hiking shoes ever! Can't believe the fit, perfect. True to size, good foot feel and great grip on loose surfaces because of the unique VIBRAM soles. I should buy another pair. As far as arch suport goes I can't say, I have flat feet and wear orthotics which also fit in these shoes perfectly. Thank you New Balance, Thank you Zappos!

I returned a Keen utility pair for these and I'm so glad I did. This pair was comfortable from the get-go. The EE fit my wide feet very well. They are extremely light, in part because of the fabric-material on the sides, which I normally do not care for because it can look cheap, but this is much less conspicuous. I can wear these all day without heel pain or cramped toes. Recommend highly.

These shoes are terrible for uptempo 5+ miles trail walks. I even changed the inserts to $30 ones but that didn't help either. Perfect for everything else.

Just got these shoes a few days ago. The are my daily work shoes, I am a general contractor and need a shoe that is durable & comfortable with good support. The fit was right on; width & size. The toe box is generous with room to move your toes. The only downfall of this shoes for some people would be the insole. With me, I replace every insole once I buy a pair of shoes if the shoe has little arch support or is just too much volume. Some of New Balance's other higher end shoes do not need replacement insoles. With these mid-line shoes, the support is just okay. With a great full insole, these shoes fulfill my needs for the daily 6 to 6 grind. If they wear well, I will buy another pair in a month.

Brands I'd also recommend: None, buy New Balance if they fit.

Excellent shoes, style, workmanship, feel, etc. Did have to return the first pair and got one 1/2 size larger and these are perfect. Quick and easy return process. Note: the New Balance series 800 or 900 are the best shoes you can buy for the price.

I bought these shoes for my husband because he wanted a walking shoe for the winter months. He is hard to fit because he needs a 4E width, which is very difficult to find. Zappos has a wonderful selection, and these New Balance fit the bill! I took the advice of the other reviewers and ordered a half size larger than he normally wears, and they are a perfect fit!

After spending several hours on Monday visiting the New Balance store and The Walking Company, I gave up and came home. I need shoes in a bad way and thought it would be faster to just go pick some and come home with them. No selection at either place. I ordered these on Monday in the late afternoon and they where here waiting on me when I got home from work on Wednesday. You just cannot beat Zappos. The shoes are great too!

Brands I'd also recommend: NB... only athletic shoes I wear.

I do not do this often, but I have had way too many good experiences. I Recommend Zappos. First of all I bought a pair of Keene Sandals in 2004, They arrived at my Bocas del Toro, Panama MBE mailbox in seven days. I wore them for two years trudging through the rain forested island and wading in the salt water almost daily. In 2007 I again ordered another pair from Zappos. They lasted three years, when I ordered my third pair. No fault to Zappos, but it was Keens' quality that went way down hill when the cheap glued soles came apart, and Keene would not even respond. However, after recently getting a part time job, I had to buy real shoes. Through the thousands of shoe selections I bought a pair of sneaker types; New Balance 4E width which my feet do require. Hardly any manufacture makes anything above W (which is a 1E). Anyhow, I ordered a pair at 9½ and paid for a two day delivery. They have free shipping round trip if returned. I wore them one day, but the end of my toes were cramped, so I called to exchange them for a size 10 4E, in just a couple minutes they said they would ship them immediately at no charge, and email me a prepaid return shipping label. About 10 minutes later, I figured it best to change that size to a 10½. I called them back on their 24/7 phone line, and no waiting on hold, they said no problem. I returned home the next day and there they were at my doorstep, which is like less than 24 hours. We need more service like this in America!

Great shoe. I have worn more NB shoes than I can recall. So, I didn't listen to the other reviewers who said to order a half size larger. Well, order a half size larger. The return was easy with Zappos of course.

These shoes are comfortable right out of the box and they look great. The are very light and the tread is great for hiking in dirt. The tab in back is too small to be any use when putting on shoe. Sizing is a half size smaller than normal. Overall, this is a great shoe and I would highly recommend them.
