The heel is so low that these feel like you are wearing flip flops. Just the very bottom of your heel is actually in the shoe.

Perfect-true to size. I ordered brown ones and liked so much I ordered black ones on Sat--they arrived on Mon. Fast shipping with always first class service. Comfortable shoe that looks good too. The higher heel makes you look an inch taller too. Great shoe--well pleased with purchase.

Needed a slip on shoe with support for post surgery ease in getting on. This shoe fit the bill perfectly. The style is sporty and fit as described. Would recommend to anyone looking for a comfortable, easy to slide into shoe.

Bought these for my 83 year old father-in-law and he LOVES them. They fit snugly, but not tight and provide good stability. Some shoes are bulky and actually become a tripping hazard. These are not. I ordered him an 11 EEEE.

These shoes are great for coming in and going out of the house repeatedly because they slip on and off so quickly. If you are a contractor or service tech of any kind these are a good choice. They're also very comfortable. Like wearing a pair of tennis shoes. Make sure to buy them a 1/2 size or a full size larger than what you normally wear.

Finding slip-on shoes that fit tightly not to slide up and down, but are not uncomfortably tight after a few hours is challenging. I found what I needed in the New Balance MWM756B2. Please note that this shoe appears at Zappos with a "v" where there is a "b" on the label inside the shoe. NB has built some flexibility into the upper with an elastic gusset that allows the tongue to flex slightly. I found the size and width to be true to NB's other shoes that I've owned, in my case 8 12/ 4E. The fit in the toe box was somewhat too tight so replaced the NB insole with a Spenco Total Support Thin. The front of that model is exceptionally thin, while the arch support is an improvement on the NB original. The uppers are brushed leather and so will need occasional with an appropriate brush. I have the predecessor model that is almost identical, and that pair shows little wear after at least 5 years.

My 14 year old son LOVES these. They are more "athletic" than his old Merrill suede shoes and keep the water out better. He wore them all over the museums of NYC this past weekend and said how comfortable they are. He can run in them, play in them and best yet-- wear them with his uniform to school on foul weather or other days days when he wants an alternative to his Cole Hahn loafers, also bought at Zappos. These run a bit wide (he has a narrow foot) but they stay on well despite that and as I said, he says how comfortable they are. My son and I have the same shoe size and when I tried them on, they don't feel as if they have a lot of arch support, as an FYI. Nevertheless, I highly recommend!

These are very light and extremely comfortable. Buy half a size larger if you want them to conform to your normal size. I usually wear 7½, and size 8 fits me well. These are highly recommended.

I am very happy with the purchase and dealing with Zappos. I received the shoes and needed to get a half size larger. I returned the shoes and within a day or two got the new shoes which fit perfectly. I got the new shoes before Zappos got back the old shoes. they made the exchange very easy.

I purchased this show as a casual walker and a casual work shoe (I work in an office setting). I have purchased the similar shoe in brown and have really like them, and this is the updated style/version of the 755's. Things I like: the sole has excellent grip! I have to walk up a grassy hill every day from a parking lot and even when wet or light snow, these shoes don't slip! Also, they from of the shoe looks more lighter grey in the pictures of it than in real life, which makes me happy as I prefer an all black shoe. My biggest disappointment is the length fit: it's short than the 2 previous pairs of the same size. This one really presses on my longest toes to the point of uncomfortableness. The width is pretty good, but not quite as big as I'd like, but still ok. I only wish I had returned them before I wore them for a 1/2 size bigger.

A very comfortable casual shoe. I have a hip problem, but was able to walk in the earlier brown version for almost a year without difficulty. My problem is, living in the LA area, black is seldom the color of choice with shorts or chinos. A white or bone version would be great!

I bought the New Balance MWM756v2 in a 4E width because 2E width was not available. I have a high instep, and the larger width allows me to slip the shoe on with ease. However, once on, it feels a little loose.

This is the third revision of this model, and having owned all three, I have to say this is a bit of a step back. It's still comfortable like a slipper, and just as easy to wear, but the fit and styling leave something to be desired. The first two versions fit my 4E foot perfectly, with only a bit of room in the toe box, as it should be. My heels moved with the shoe, without any rubbing or coming out of the shoe. This version, however, seems loose on my foot, especially in the heel, almost as if the shoe is an oval around my foot, rather than slightly thinner around the heel. My foot fits just fine but my heel slips out. It feels like there should've been a size 9 3/4, instead of 10... And then there's the style, which, in a departure from the second version, is bland, just like the first version. But that could just be my taste. It is very comfortable though, so if you can make the fit work for you, you'll love it.

My arch is too high for this shoe. The style is great, but the width sizes this year seem narrow. Even the 4E is narrower than I expected. Good luck.

I loved the previous version of the New Balance 756, but these are not comfortable. The interior material feels abrasive and they were too tight even after going up a size. There is also an uncomfortable heel cushion.

I brought this because I loved the older model MWM756. The heel support is lower and width is tighter than the old model. This makes the shoe feel weak and flimsy. It's disappointing to the predecessor. I recommend finding another shoe if you like the original version.

I owned the 756 and it fit great. The new v2 felt tight but I thought it would stretch out. It hasn't and the shoe is too tight so buy a half a size larger. Wasn't Zappos fault.

Service was good as usual, however, the shoes that I got for my grandson are not up to par. He has worn them very little and the back keeps crinkling up and makes a blister on his heel. We had bought the same shoe a few months ago and the shoes were perfect. I do not have the box or paper work for this order, but I hope u will let me return the shoes even though they have been worn.
