Great shoe. Perfect fit for my 9 1/2 AA foot. Love it. Plan to order another pair. Color of laces wild but hey and fit is everything.

I go between 9 and 9.5, and for me the 9 fit good. I got the wide width and it was just about as wide as a Keen shoe would be...not terribly wide. The strange thing is that the sole is made of these puffy "pods" that are cushy, but I sent them back because they are not "controlled cushy." My foot was pronating inward pretty bad, which is not a good thing for the feet. They are very lightweight, but not supportive.

I love these shoes and wear them almost every day! It's a very simple, yet stylish design, very soft around the foot, and the opening near the ankle is a bit different than the typical sneaker - it's stretchy and easy to keep the shoe tied to take off and on.

Brands I'd also recommend: Puma, Keen

I have the hardest feet to fit comfortably as they are so narrow. This shoe fit perfectly, no sliding, light and can be worn all day. I ordered the full 8, I have been wearing a 7 1/2.

I love the color and the light weightedness of these shoes. So why am I sending them back? The sizing seems way off. I typically wear a narrow width. I ordered these in a medium and could barely get my feet into them.

Very cute on. Super light and comfortable for moderate walking. I would wear my New Balance running shoes for long distances on my feet.

I bought these shoes to replace a pair of Easy Spirit Reinvent. I really like the color of the shoe and the way there is no tongue, but one side flaps over the other side. Flexible and with more padding than the Reinvent. I had read that some people weren't comfortable with the sole of the shoe but I don't find any problems with it. I ordered the 8 1/2 wide and it is true to size and comfortable. I like the low sole and the lack of construction. I have flat feet and bad knees and had been wearing heavy soled sneakers for years thinking they were the right choice, but the unconstructed sneakers with no arch support are so much better for me, no more pain in the knees and feet! The only thing I dislike is the color of the shoelaces which I have replaced. Give 'em a try.

I have them on right now. Very comfy. Allows your foot to move naturally while on treadmill, running errands, just walking. I am not a runner, but I can't imagine that would change the comfort of this sneaker. I have a wide foot and the wide width is comfy. Not overly wide though. They look cute with jeans, that's a plus. Hope NB never stops making this model.

This is the second pair of these I am buying. I like the ability to slip on and go. Runs narrow but that's fine with me as I'm used to having to suffer with not narrow enough shoes who call themselves "narrow." Very comfortable. Not a huge fan of the bright pink shoelaces but that's easy to fix.

This is V2 of the Superlight/Superfresh shoe. V1 was like walking on a pillow. With V2, The colors are nice but the fit is very different. I ordered a 6 1/2 2A. It is uncomfortably tight and the fabric is thicker so I don't think it will stretch out. I should have ordered a B width and maybe even a size 7. I am wondering if the shoe is really a size 6 and it is mislabeled - the fit is that far off.

Though I normally wear an 8.5B. I have to return these for the D width and am looking forward to receiving the wider shoes because I think they will provide the right amount of comfort and support for the extensive walking I plan to do on vacation.

Love this shoe. Easy on and off. Fit is excellent. Not for running but works well in the gym on treadmill. Use them for outdoor walks etc. Fun style, get lots of positive comments on them. The side tongue is a fabulous feature.

These shoes are amazing. I am so glad that I purchased them! They are lightweight, stylish and comfortable. I was able to put my orthotics in without a problem, although I may be able to wear them comfortably without them.

These are a little different than any walking shoes I have ever had, and I love them. The tongue wraps around the top of your foot and really snugly holds your foot. The sole is like lot s of little bouncy balls, so cushiony yet firm. Very comfortable and supportive.

Looking for a barefoot shoe and was hoping this was it. No mid-foot movement at all - I am looking to be able to bend the shoe in half. Not that comfortable for my feet, either. Most of the NB shoes still have a drop in the metatarsal arch - disaster for my feet.

This shoe deserves my time to give it a good review. I agree that this shoe accommodates an ortho insert. I'm a few months past major foot surgery and this is definitely the most comfortable shoe I own. Right out of the box it has become my favorite for commuting on the bus and weekend wear. I'm going to order a second pair and can see myself wearing them all summer.

The shoe is comfortable but in the end I think I am going to return it. I feel my feet protonating inward and my knees are starting to hurt. The shoe is very true to size and I plan to order another New Balance pair, just not ones with the bubbled bottoms.

This shoe is a total winner. Comfy from the minute I put them on. I needed a mesh top shoe that didn't press down on my sore toe and these were perfect. I love the construction where, instead of a tongue that can move out of position, there is a flap from the side of the shoe under the laces and it always stays in place.
