When they say "exceptional cushioning," they mean EXTRA cushioning (very cushy), EXCEPT for the 1/2 inch area where your toes lie. The super cushioning stops right before your toes and around the sides of your toes, which makes it feel very weird. (Perhaps there is a reason for this if you are actually running trails?) Outside of that, they are really sharp looking shoes and comfortable (except for the toe thing). Sadly, they are going back. (Also, ZAPPOS, I accidentally hit the 5 stars for comfort when I actually meant 3 or 4 but once you give it 5, you can't take stars back? What gives? No "clear" button for errors/changing your mind?)

These shoes sound perfect in theory, but when I tried them on, the downfalls were immediately obvious. I had ordered an 8.5 wide which is standard for my foot, but the sneaker itself was short so much that my toes had to curl over. Also noticed there wasn't any padding under the toes making it uber uncomfortable. If I had gone a size up, and narrower it would've been too long. As is, my heals were already slipping out of the shoe.

I absolutely love Zappos! Initially I ordered a pair of sneakers but they accidentally were sent to my old address and were never found! So I called customer service and wouldn't you know they sent me another exact pair, of no extra charge, the next day! I could not believe it! This will always be my shoe site!

This is my second pair, and I hope New Balance does not change it much if at all. I walk up to five miles a day on trail and pavement, and they hold up well for my neutral stride. They are very cushy with room in the toe box and good arch support. I only wish that they would come in more than one color.

I was surprised when to find the insert of the shoe was quite different. There is an indent around the rim of the shoe inside. At first my foot slid forward, to the point they felt too small. I wore them inside for awhile to see if I'd get used to it. I finally put my orthotics in and they felt fine. I love the style of the shoe and buy New Balance most of the time.

Great looking shoes! Very comfortable and very supportive. They run at least a half-size too small. I usually wear a 7.5 or 8, depending on the cut, and had to get a 8.5 with these.

Prior to these sneakers, I was wearing really un-supportive with a weak arch sneakers for over a year. So these took sometime to get used to. Now they feel amazing. The memory foam is really the charm to keep your feet comfortable.

Very comfortable fit, I did have to return/exchange for half/size bigger. Can't comment about arch support as I have to insert my prescription ortho-insert.

This was my first time ordering from Zappos...and all I can say is Wow! They had the brand, style, and size I wanted. Then I was offered 3 options for shipping, I chose next business day...and...Poof...UPS brought them the next...and no shipping charge! And if I had to return them, no shipping charge. How can you not love a company that does all that for you?

The shoes seem to be sized a little small but otherwise it was a great deal. Think I will order a 1/2 size larger for New Balance shoes in the future.

Where does it say if this is a walking or running shoe? I found it nowhere in the description, only on the box after I ordered it. I like the colors, comfort is OK. I need a walking shoe. :(

Although a nice looking shoe, this is definitely a more rugged, trail shoe. There was additional support in the shoe and the liner could not be removed to add in my orthotics. The shoe also was a full 1/2 size smaller than expected and not as wide as I expected when ordering a wide. The shoe was returned.

I got these shoes really liked how they looked online but ended up returning two pair because they are not true to size. I usually wear a 10 ordered a 10 and they were to small then exchanged those for 10 1/2 and they were also to small.

I don't understand how anyone can wear these. The extra foam cushioning is only in the center of the sole - so half of big toe and half of baby toe is off the cushioning and getting hit in a weird spot. Why isn't the cushioning even across the sole? Very strange. Other than that, it looks like a great shoe. Disappointed.

I have to agree with other reviewers about the foam insole of this shoe. It doesn't go all way to the edge of the shoe, leaving your poor toes with no cushioning. And the sizing is way off. I normally take a 7, but heard that these ran small, so I got a 7.5. My big toes are pressed right up against the front of the shoe. So, I would advise going up a whole size. Also, maybe this is my mistake, but I thought these shoes were designed for moderate over-pronators, but there is no arch support at all, let alone anything to correct over-pronation. These are very nice looking shoes, but shoes are not just about looks.

I should have listened to the other reviewers when they said the cushioning did not include the toe area, they were right and I will add the cushioning is pathetic. New Balance has gone downhill as far as comfort in my opinion. But Zappos is the greatest!
