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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Zappos took these back when I noticed they squeaked when I walk. I tried a second pair - same squeaking! I am of average weight and so there's clearly an issue with at least some of these shoes. In addition, the leather is stiff and the tongue very bulky. This might add to comfort but I didn't like it.

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 bought these shoes for my husband who is a diabetic and has a lot of trouble with his feet and legs. He loves them and finds them to have the much needed support that he needs. We would recommend these shoes and will buy them again.

I ordered what I thought was my correct size, but alas, the shoe was too short. I obtained the free return UPS sticker and ordered the correct size. Zappos mailed the exchanged order right away, before receiving the order that was too small. They do things promptly, fairly, and are super to work with.

Shoe has a soft walk which is very desirable since I walk about 5 miles a day. This is the second pair of these shoes I've owned and I'm very satisfied with the sizing the feel and the looks.

My husband just bought a pair of New Balance shoes from Kohl's and when we got home we noticed that they were made in Viet Nam. He thought all new NB shoes were made in the USA. He never would have bought them if he would have noticed that in the store. When did they start making those shoes out of the USA?

Nice looking, comfortable, quality pair of tennis shoes. Nice to find tasteful looking tennis shoes without tacky colors or designs. Originally bought a size 10 and had to send back for a 10 1/2. As always, Zappos return/exchange process was simple and easy. Zappos continues to be the only shoe store for the entire family.

Arrived quickly. These fit my orthotic arch supports the best. The toe area is nice and wide instead of narrowing a lot.

I usually don't do reviews but I'll try this one. Finding shoes for me is a challenge! Size 14 wide. Local stores never have the correct size or enough selections. Zappos works out good. This New Balance was true to size. Feels good. Looks good. A bit pricey but I have few choices. Other online places did not offer the choices or good prices! Very, very easy to return the shoes that did not fit. I am happy and satisfied with Zappos and New Balance.

New Balance is a quality manufacturer. Shoes always fit perfectly and are the most comfortable I've ever worn. My senior citizen feet appreciate the support. Excellent design. One caution: initial fit a wee bit snug because leather will loosen with use/age. Can adjust by removing insert if desired.

I need the extra width and this New Balance purchase was my third of the same show. It's hard to find a no-frills AND extra wide walking shoe and Zappos makes it easy. An added bonus is that no one delivers more quickly than Zappos. I'm a happy customer.
