I have plantar fasciitis in both feet and this is my favorite shoe. The insole lifts up easily so I can easily insert my custom orthotics and the shoe still comes up far enough on my ankles. I have the black and the white.

The shoe is much to narrow. I depend on New Balance for a wide shoe (D)with a generous toe box. This shoe did not fit well at all. I will try a EE if they make it.

I've worn New Balance walking shoes for years and have always worn the same size. I was surprised that these shoes seemed so big on my feet, and when I held the sole up against my previous pair, these were a half inch longer! Much too big; I'm returning them and think I'll try another brand this time.

Great shoe for work/walking. I am on my feet most of the day for a 10 hour shift and my feet are great at the end of the day. Whether you are walking on a flat or hilly surface these shoes feel stable and no ankle turning with this shoe.

Been searching for comfortable black work shoes for some time. Tried some New Balance every day shoes and loved them but couldn't find any in black in the retail stores. While searching the Internet, I found Zappos had the biggest selection. I went for this style because it most closely resembled the shoes I already have. They have a nice open toe box and good support. I love them!

I normally love New Balance shoes. For some reason these did not work for me. I felt like I had been on my feet for 24 hours after 10 hours.

I love New Balance sneakers so much that my husband and the kids wear them as well. I have been wearing the WW811 for years and it was time to retire them. I looked for other New Balance sneakers that have the Last: SL-2 like my WW811 pair. I saw these and bought them in a 10W like my other pair and when I got them and put them on they are not nearly as wide as my WW811. There is no wiggle room for my toes. I will be sending these back and keep searching for sneakers.

I personally love Zappos and never had a complaint about anything but these shoes looked like they would work I wore them around the house and they were fine but then once I wore them to work the shoes are not right for me no arch support I got wide feet they were even wider and too big not comfortable now I can't return them because I wore them to work for a week so I ordered a different pair and this time Sketchers I hope they work after reading the reviews.

Although this style of shoe (with hook & loop closure) would not be my first choice, I have foot issues so that is what I must wear. These shoes fit the bill. The tabs are long enough to accommodate my feet when they swell and still look neat. Other shoes have shorter tabs and when my feet swell I cannot close the shoe. Lots of room in the toe box, but the shoe does not look wide at all. Thank you New Balance and Zappos.

I always buy these sneakers. I have tried other brands but always come back to new balance. I walk about 3 miles every day and my feet are always comfortable. Zappos had the best price and the service was terrific.

These are comfortable and they fit well. They are a little bit stiff, but that goes away after a few days of wear. The extra sturdiness is well worth it!

Trying to find shoes that fit super narrow feet is a real adventure. New Balance does not have a slim, which I need, but their narrow works well with medium weight socks. Comfortable fit with room to wiggle toes. Wish it had been available in bone instead of white.

New Balance is best fitting sneaker for narrow feet. Also fits my orthotics. Very comfortable, yet look 'dressy' enough to wear with Dockers/casual wear

I wear a 8 1/2 narrow. I've found this shoe to be very comfortable and great for walking in colder weather. It has lots of toe room and a comfortable sole.

I ordered 2 sizes of this NB shoe. I have a narrow foot and the person who helped me place the order said there was only 1 narrow one left. That is the size I kept and the B (medium) was shipped back. Great store & superior customer service.

This is my second pair of this style. I've purchased other styles of new balance and they would be too narrow for my foot. These have just that little bit of extra room so my feet don't hurt when on my daily walks. I also have to put inserts in my shoes and even with the inserts the fit is good for me.

I purchased these based on reviews as I had taken a job where I am on my feet for 8 hours and the sneakers I had weren't cutting it. I came home in pain every night. I purchased these and they made a world of difference! No more pain and blisters. Would definitely recommend!

I had worn Propet Tour Walkers for years -- dozens of pairs -- but their quality plummeted and the excellent fit and sizing fell by the wayside in the process. I have an extremely difficult time finding shoes to fit my mis-matched feet. The left is a size 10 and the right is a size 9 -- and the right one pronates. I tried numerous pairs, trying to fit both feet reasonably comfortably. I finally hit upon the New Balance WW411 (after trying many, many New Balance -- and other -- shoes) and am more than thrilled with the excellent fit and the extreme comfort these afford. In fact, I like them so well, I bought two more pairs to save for when these wear out as, chances are, they will have discontinued making these -- or will have changed them in some weird way -- before I could buy any more. I couldn't even care less whether these are the most beautiful athletic shoe or not...I love these shoes! Thanks, Zappos, for your free both-way shipping...it is always unbelievably appreciated, especially since I have difficulty with almost every shoe I ever try! Zappos rocks!

Brands I'd also recommend: I can't recommend any others, since I couldn't find any that fit properly!

Some of us guys have very narrow shoe widths and have to buy women's shoes to get a narrow width. These were bought to be light weight relatively inexpensive yard shoes. They work great.

This is my second pair of 411s. Shoe wears well, comes in the narrow width I need and does not require any breaking in time. I would prefer more color but otherwise it's a good, reasonably priced shoe.
