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.

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 wear these for work because my work shoes have to be all black and these are great. These shoes are very comfortable, even after 6-10 hours moving around on my feet. They're very cozy, they sides feel like pillows on my feet, these really are great work shoes. They feel big, but aren't they're like a tennis shoe boot, I love them.

If you have been having problems with trying to finding Asics that are of good quality, you may want to try New Balance. This is a great walker!! Nice narrow fit. Great support. I tried this together with the Saucony Omni and the only reason I returned the New Balance was because I liked the Saucony a wee bit better. It was a toss-up however. I almost kept both. I highly recommend trying this New Balance. What has happened to Asics is beyond me.

As a diabetic, I was looking for shoes that would not pinch my toes and had plenty of room. As a businessman, I needed shoes that look decent with a coat and tie. The MW577 fit the bill. However, I had a hard time getting a pair that fit me right. I wear an 11½D in most other shoes, and have a narrow heel. But with the MW577, that is way too small for my feet. I tried a 12D, that was too narrow. 12E, still was too narrow. Only a 12EE fit. I would recommend these shoes as comfortable and good looking - just make sure you get the size that fits you right.

My son is a young man with wide, flat, feet, characteristic of his sown ayndrome, and has worn New Balance since a teen, 5E. With his 230 pound weight, he would go through one pair a year, and the cheapos from Walmart would only last a few months. Both those kinds would be misshapen and falling apart. These 577 shoes are quite amazing. I just checked, and finally, after two full years, the one heel of these has worn down. And six months ago, the seam came open in the front of one, which we had repaired at a local shoe shop, and is still holding. But the internal inserts, directly under his feet, and still in one piece! Normally they would fall apart after a few months of the weight. He works 20 hours a week as a courtesy clerk, and before these, would complain that his feet hurt. I have asked him many times with these, if his feet hurt, and he answers "No." He loves them. So I am back here at Zappos, buying another pair, which we hope will last two years for us, again!

The shoes arrived on time, took out of box, put the shoes on fit. comfortable walking on steps. I am up at 5:30am and off at 5:30pm. In and out of van, unload reload with new car parts, load cube trucks for out of town delivery, At size 14 4 E there aren't many stylish shoes, these are great.We will see how long they last!

These were as advertised and very quick delivery. However, the best part was the service received from Zappos. I purchased the incorrect size and as seamless as possible Zappos had them exchanged with the correct size.

I bought these because I had a similar pair with velcro instead of laces and I liked them. Also have had bad luck with New Balance shoes that have a little lip at the toe which connects to the sole--actually it doesn't stay connected to the shoe very long. These shoes are very comfortable and have a lot of shock absorbency!

New Balance shoes are only a few shoes I can purchase in size 14 4E for my 6'2 son. He said they fit him like a glove and really looks niece. Now, he looks 6'4 but he looks even better with the shoes. Having large feet deserves quality and comfort too.

I was looking for a replacement for the Rockport Wachusett Trail Sport Laceup. This is OK but I miss the excellent construction of that brand. Their newer line is more expensive but not as supportive.

This is the only sneaker I've worn for so long I can't remember (20yrs or more?) when I worked, I was on concrete and my feet all day (8-12 hrs daily) and my feet never hurt. before using these my legs would ache, feet hurt etc. I should say also that I've always used better insoles which for me is a big plus. If it weren't for these shoes I would have probably been fired for not being on my feet! So these are life savers for me. hope this helps with your choice of shoes.

This is the third pair of these New Balance shoes that I have worn. I find them to be very comfortable and offer good support. It is hard to find broad toe shoes when you have very wide feet such as I have.
