First time that I have ever been able to work 100-15 hour days straight without any problems with my feet. Best shoe I've found yet for being on your feet all day.

Be advised: These shoes are not fully leather. The toe-box area is synthetic which means your feet will sweat badly while working in these sneakers.

USA made! One of the few left making shoes in the USA. I applaud them for that. Good quality and I will keep buying New Balance!

These were wider than normal and the toe area looked like clown shoes. Very wide and round. I found another pair and the same size at a local store that didn't have the clown look. Maybe New Balance cannot make two pair look the same. Need better quality control.

I like these shoes in all respects but one: they squeak (or croak like a frog, as another review said) constantly, on every step. The problem is the material of the tongue, which has a slick surface that rubs on the inside of the upper and the laces in such a way as to produce a sound similar to rubbing your finger on a blown-up balloon, or the sound made by your feet when walking in fresh snow. Anyway, it is really annoying, especially in a quiet environment. I would consider this a design flaw, and not recommend these shoes, even though they are very comfortable. I am returning the pair that I bought.

I purchased this a year ago but have always been disappointed that at the bottom of my toes these shoes are very uncomfortable. They are long lasting but I have never felt comfortable in them. I would not purchase them again.

While I've always been a big fan of New Balance, the MW577 did not work for me. The sole construction favors the heel which in my case caused some sliding of the foot forward resulting in toe pinching. I stand 8 hours a day for work and ultimately could not wear this model. I ended up purchasing the Nike Air Monarch which has great cushioning and a more traditional fit.

These shoes hurt! The 577 has a terrible shoe defect. The tongue on the shoe is way too long and curved. With each step I took, I felt pain against my ankle. The tongue was digging into my top of my ankles! Ouch. Too bad the cushioned insoles felt good and the rest of the fit was fine. It was just that terrible shoe tongue. I sent them back. I tried wider, and a bigger size thinking that would fix the tongue problem but it did not. Oh well, thank goodness for Zappos wonderful return policy.

Very uncomfortable with bleeding on my big toe after 2 walks. Zappos refunded my money for the second time in a month! I offered to return the shoes to prove I wasn't scamming them, but they said, "no need". I donated the second pair of shoes from Zappos to the local thrift shop.

I purchased these for my husband. He has worn New Balance for many years but said this style was the best ever! We went on vacation and did a lot of walking. He said his feet never were uncomfortable like new shoes usually are. I LOVE Zappos and buy all of our shoes here. The service and friendly employees can not be beat anywhere!!

I was not sure about New Balance, I have had trouble with size in the past. But, these looked like good shoes, so I gave them, and Zappos, a shot. I was not disappointed! These shoes are comfortable and came in the size/width I needed. Two full days of wear so far, and I am very happy with the purchase, the shipping, and the return policy (even though I did not need to use it). Thank you, Zappos!

I ordered the above product in a size 10 width b. A size 8 and 1/2 width D was delivered. The rep that I spoke to apologized and guaranteed that I would receive the correct size the next day. It was. The rep was very pleasant, listened to my problem, and immediately fixed it. And offered me a coupon for my inconvenience. Zappos has a great staff of support associates.

from So. Cal.

I'm not one who usually writes reviews on things purchased but I'll make an exception on this. These shoes fit really well. I've purchased 3 or 4 pair of shoes from Zappos over the past couple of years and none of the others have felt as comfortable as these. These were plenty wide for being sized as 4E. The length has never been an issue on any shoes I've purchased but I find the width is often too narrow even when advertised as extra wide or 4E. These shoes were plenty wide for me. I can't report on how durable the shoes are as I have only had them for a day but I can say they fit my feet as well as any shoes I've ever bought before. If they hold up to normal use I would rate them outstanding. Price wasn't too expensive either.

Reinforce what other positive reviewers have said. True to size, excellent support, light weight, good utility and value. I understand now why many keep returning back to buy another pair.

I bought these shoes for my son to use while curling. I had a cobbler put a custom slider on the left shoe for the game and they are now the perfect custom made comfortable curling shoes for a teenager with extra wide feet. He could not be happier.

Brands I'd also recommend: New Balance has always been the best bet for wide athletic shoes I've found.

Have purchased two pair over past two years, for walking purposes. Fine shoe except the heel inside wears through very quickly causing a roughness and irritation of my heels. Both pairs the same. Probably not more than 500 miles walking on each pair. Poor performance. Otherwise the shoes show little wear.

I bought these for nursing school and they are extremely comfortable. I highly recommend them for anyone who is going to be doing a lot of moving around or who is on their feet for an extended period of time. Make sure you buy and use a shoe cleaning kit with them.

This is a great shoe and fits very well if you know they run a half to a full size small. I bought a 14/4E (I normally wear a 13) and found them to be a perfect fit. Since they are a padded/insulated walking shoe they appear fairly large, but they are very comfortable.

This is an excellent walking shoe--perfect for someone who does a lot of walking both on-the-job and for exercise. I have purchased it twice, and it is the best that I have found on the market. The only complaint I have is this: both times the front left shoe by the big toe has separated from the shoe's sole, leaving an opening susceptible to water and cold (no fun during a Minnesota winter). It appears that the adhesive is letting go along the area that joins the shoe front to the sole/base of the shoe. As this has happened on both pairs that I've purchased, I believe this may be a design-related issue that needs to be addressed...perhaps a stronger adhesive? Again, this is an excellent walking shoe, and I highly recommend it, with the hope that the manufacturer will be made aware of the design concern I've shared.

This is my second pair of MW577s. The first pair were very comfortable and lasted almost nine months. They seemed to wear very well and the price was good. I am on my feet for eight hours a day walking most of the time. I am sure that I will buy a third pair when the second pair wears out.

This is a great dual purpose shoe for walking and casual dress. I use these shoes at work and out on the town. They go great with khakis or jeans. Most important of all they are comfortable.

I have been searching for shoes for comfort I have no feeling in my legs except for my feet. I have 12 pairs now and none compare with these the inner sole gives me more comfort and balance. Try them - there is nothing to lose with Zappos' policy.

The best walking shoe I have ever owned. The leather is supple and flexible. The fit is excellent and the heel is cupped and fits very well. The toe box is roomy. The walk is soft without being mushy. An outstanding value and a better shoe than the much more expensive MW928.
