I'm happy with this shoe and I find that hard to come by. I just have to come to terms with the fact that I need a wide shoe and those can be either bland or quite expensive or hard to find. Zappos has a good selection though. I've been doing T25 and was looking for a shoe that met the requirements of stability and comfort with a low profile feel. I would say these are a step above low profile and a step below running. I've tried a few low profile shoes but they always ended up being to narrow. Which was too bad since I could see and feel the advantage of that type of shoe when performing the T25 style workout. This shoe was a great alternative the moment I put it on. Very soft and comfortable yet stable to the floor. This is my first pair of New Balance shoes. I've always had a problem with comfort at the base of the shoes tongue when trying NB in the store. It would literally pinch my foot. So I was apprehensive when trying these but pleasantly surprised. I would consider the shoe's style subdued and neutral. I could have used a few more "flashy" choices myself. I may be a boring white guy but I like a little color. That tends to be the choices for wide feet. I guess we're a minority..but I digress. Great shoe! I'll be looking at NB in the future and am very happy with Zappos free shipping policy.

Love how light these shoes are!! And for being cross-trainers, they rock. So comfortable to wear at the gym. I used to have to opt for running shoes when looking to pick any pair to use at the gym, but hated than running shoes always have less surface contact with the floor on the outsoles. This model is the perfect combination: light as a running shoe, but outsole with a broader floor-contact surface. During leg workout days, they provide great stability for squats. All without the hassle of wearing around a heavy/thick typical cross-trainer shoe. Only wish they'd come in more color options, radder styles.

I'm a female with big feet, so I thought I would try a men's shoe since I haven't had very good luck trying to find a shoe for Zumba. These have a great sole and don't stick to the hardwood floor in our gym; the negative is they aren't very supportive. I put an orthotic in, but still ended up with my plantar fasciitis inflamed. The day they make a supportive cross trainer with a dance shoe (pivot point, non-stick) bottom will be the best day ever!

I like to buy New Balance shoes because they are one of the few brands that are made in the USA, but this particular pair was not made well. The laces go through fabric loops rather than eyelets set directly into the sneaker, and after only wearing the shoes a few times, one of the fabric loops ripped. I had to poke a hole through the shoe to re-tread my lace. Poor design.

Nice shoe. The width is fine and the Pivot points are excellent for Martial Arts. However the shoe is snug on top and the neoprene does not hold foot when doing stance work. Good shoe for generic aerobics etc. Sorry, I have to return the shoes.

I was so disappointed when I received these shoes as they looked exactly like what I wanted online. But when I received them, neither pair was even close to an 8 2E. I have been wearing this size in New Balance shoes for many years and they do not even look wide enough out of the box. The shoestrings were so short they could not be tied, once I was able to cram my foot into them. They are being sent back today, unfortunately.
