I purchased these shoes based on the previous Las Vegas dealer's recommendation. I also work in a casino and stand about 10 hours a day. I have a 4E wide foot, and have spent years trying to find a comfortable work shoe. These are the best I've found so far, and I also purchased Sole insoles to replace the flimsy inserts that come with the shoes. I highly recommended these for someone who stands on their feet all day.

I purchased the MW411 for price and fit but am very disappointed in durability. I have purchased three pairs of this model over a couple years and I always have the same problem with the souls coming apart after 70 days. Most shoes I've worm loose their support after a few months anyway, so I didn't fret too much about the souls. I'm sticking with New Balance for fit and comfort but moving on to another shoe model.

Bought as a work shoe (massage therapist who is on his feet about 25 hours/week). Sturdy and practical, if not fashionable or particularly pretty. Does the job well though.

I have narrow, flat feet which has made it difficult to find shoes that didn't cause walking problems. Last year I bought a more expensive and "higher tech" NB walking shoe but ended up not able to use them. These don't impose themselves on my feet the same way the others did and now I can enjoy long walks again. The roomy toe box is a great help.

I have these shoes that I bought in a store which are white and old now. So I ordered the same shoe. I ordered size 8 M, first shoe to arrive was clearly mislabeled and was actually a 7.5 M. I was about to send them back, but they fit my husband. So I gave them to him and ordered again. I ordered an 8 M again. This time the length was right. What I didn't notice is that they are too wide. But by the time I realized they are too wide, I could not send them back. I am wearing them, but I will have to buy a pair of shoes that fits better. These are just for looks. So I do not recommend ordering these shoes from Zappos, because I'm pretty sure the shoes I got are an 8W and not an 8M and thus mislabeled again. This is not Zappos fault but the manufacturers fault. I will be buying my shoes in a walk-in store.

My friend just became a dad so I got him these shoes to help usher him into fatherhood. After receiving his new dad shoes he won't shut up about his kid. The only negative thing I can think of is that he tells awful jokes now. Especially when wearing these shoes. For instance he got a haircut and I said 'hey man, did you get a haircut?' and quickly retorted with 'no I got them all cut!' He laughed himself to tears while everyone else groaned. It seems the shoes have given him a bit dad strength as well.

The New Balance shoes that I purchased for my husband are wonderful. He has diabetes and his skin is dry and cracks. He feels no discomfort at all when he is wearing these shoes.

An excellent and light weight shoe. Perfect "grip type" sole. I wear them when I attend fencing class. They fit great, are true to size, and are very comfortable.

Good looking and comfortable shoes. Great price. Only issue is that they run a bit narrow. I wear a 2E comfortably, but in these a 2E was fairly tight. I decided they would break in, and they are, but next time I'll probably try a different shoe.

These 4E version of these MW411 are almost an entire inch narrower than the 4E version of the New Balance MX608v3. If you have especially wide feet these MW411 will be too small. After calling New Balance they say to try the MW577 instead, as they are even wider than the MX608v3. I have ordered the MW577 and we will see if they fit...

Got them last minute to hike around Yosemite trails w the kids. Hours of walking and my flat and wide-at-the-toes feet were very very happy. Cannot beat this quality and comfort for the prize. Basic design. Could they look a little nicer? Probably, but I will come back to these until they stop making them. FYI, I also tried a half size bigger on NBs basic cross trainers and the toe box was too narrow for me.

These have turned out to be my husband's shoe of choice. I just order another pair (or two) when his start getting dirty or worn. It makes it very easy for me since he doesn't like to shop!

Well, kudos for the fit and comfort of these sneakers, though the styling leaves something to be desired. For comfort and practicality, these sneakers come out on top. If you're looking for style, look elsewhere.

I work outdoors on an airport ramp where I am exposed to all the elements from a ramp covered in sleet to 110+ degrees as well as oil from fuel spills. these shoes are work through it all like champions. even after our busiest month when I had to work 12 hrs a day 7 days a week I came home and my feet still felt great! I highly recommend this shoe for any one who works on their feet all day. My work puts a lot of abuse on shoes from the constant walking and jogging across abrasive tarmac to repeated oil spills, I generally end up replacing this shoe every 4 to 5 months as the tread starts to wear through to the cushion.

Haven't really had an opportunity to wear these at any length but from what I see they meet up to my expectations. Zappos I recommend highly, great products and a pleasure to deal with.

Lightweight and comfortable for walking and everyday wear. No complaints. Shoes gave me the best support and are a good value. I have wide feet and the 4 E fit my feet perfect. I would say they are the best New Balance shoes I have owned.

They're very comfortable and the size 15 fit me just as any other size 15s do. I used to wear them when I worked a valet parking job in college, so that meant I ran in them a lot. One downside to these is that the sole started to come off after about 3-4 months of use. Oh also, the included shoe laces stretch a lot and are ridiculously long.

New Balance has always been my favorite shoe for many reasons. And you can't find a better selection, for better prices, than at Zappos! They make it very easy to shop for your favorite shoes right from the comfort and convenience of your own home, with uber-fast delivery! What makes Zappos even more incredible is their amazing customer service department. Where else can you go shopping online and have to security of knowing that there is a 24-hour Live Chat available to help you with whatever issues you may have? I've only found one. Zappos. I love my new New Balance shoes! And I love Zappos!
