Too narrow. I've worn New Balance size 8 4E MX608 for almost 20 years from Big 5. These size 8 4Es are too narrow. Returning. Eventually I bought a pair of Keene Voyageur US 8.5 and they fit perfectly.

These shoes are very comfortable, and they have good grip on all sufaces. Also they retain a lot of heat and are nice in the cold mornings.

I've put this shoe through hell this year and it just keeps going. Haven't worn them out yet but I thought I'd better get another pair while they still make them.

You'll read in these reviews the occasional "...order a half size larger." Follow that advice and you'll have some of the most comfortable shoes. For me, I haven't had a pair (and I have a lot of shoes, New Balance, Merrill, and others) this comfortable in years. This is like sinking my feet into heaven. I walk about 5 miles a day, exercise on a Precor elliptical, and do other activities in these MO889BR shoes. I do have an orthotic that I insert in place of the insert that came with this shoe, but, still, I have plenty of room in the toe box. I have a new Birkenstock sport orthotic coming and I am certain that it, too, will fit.

Brands I'd also recommend: Uh, this is THE shoe for me, folks!

I typically wear NB 990's made on the SL-1 last in size 11.5/4E. Based on some reviews that said they ran a half size small I ordered these in size 12/4E and I'm glad I did. The length is right and the 4E is not quite as wide as the 990's but sufficient. These have great sole tread and remind me of my spikeless golf shoes. I'll probably give them a go on the course as I expect they will be outstanding. These are my woods, trail, fishing and other messy adventure shoes. Overall, very pleased with the purchase!

Spouse and I both wear New Balance because they offer outdoor sneakers in a lot of sizes and widths. For this shoe we had to return 10D and go with 10.5 E to get proper fit with heavy sock. Usually wears 10D in dress shoe. Plan accordingly.

Great looking shoe, not too jazzy or bright to be masculine--just enough. Great fit just as it should be. Would definitely buy again. Wide enough since take a 4E width--New Balance is the best.

Great fit and supreme comfort out of the box. I walked all day at Disney World! Of course Zappos made it great by offering wide sizes and many styles to chose from, and of course A-1 customer service if you don't like something!

This is probably the best fitting walking shoe I've ever owned. They are light, yet sturdy, and have excellent traction for non-slip performance. I especially like the color, so tired of white.

from Colonie NY

My 12 yr old son said these sneakers were the best he's had for day to day wear. Great support and cushion for a kid (or adult) who has wide feet and a high instep. He's an extra wide and sizing was perfect. A bit heavy for for fast action sports or gym. Bought a pair in both colors because he said they were so comfortable!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!
