I am a group fitness instructor and personal trainer. I have flat feet, pronate and wear custom orthotics. So let me first say that the color of these shoes is just beautiful! I really did want to keep them! They are very stable which would be good for lateral movements. But there is just no cushion what so ever in this shoe. Therefore, if you are looking for a shoe for high impact activities such as step aerobics, pylometrics or running, this shoe is not for you. My custom orthotics did fit, but even then, there was still not enough cushion. I wear a women's size 5 but ordered a size 6 to fit my orthotics. If you do not wear custom orthotics I would suggest ordering your true size. Also, there was plenty of room in the toe box. Hope this review can be of some help to someone!

First, if it’s hot pink (“bling” would also be a great addition), I love it. Second, as included in all my Zappos reviews, I have the world’s most misshapen feet. Being born with flat feet and after decades of stilettos, small children would run away, screaming, if they were forced to look at these tootsies. These shoes are a Godsend!!!! My husband and I walk 14 - 25 miles a week for exercise, and these fabulous shoes make it almost a pleasure (“pleasure” would be not having to do it in the first place). Snug at the heel in the interior so it doesn’t slip as you walk, lots of room in the toe box, sooooo much cushioning in the heel as you strike the surface, and they’re PINK!!! Yes, they’re pricey but, in this case, you get what you pay for. They’re worth every penny. I just ordered another pair ...

It absolutely KILLS me to return these shoes but they just don't offer the support I need. Really cute magenta color. Wanted them to work so badly but I'm past the stage of buying shoes just because they're cute!

Not supportive enough for me. For the price .... which was really ridiculous, I am returning. Size was good. Arch support fair. For new balance I expected better. ! Returning.

Outstanding! So much toe room! In athletic shoes I always go up 1/2 size and often the shoe is still too short or too narrow in the toe box. I wear a 7-7 1/2 in boots, pumps, flats. . . I purchased an 8 in these bright pink charmers, absolutely perfect! My toes can wiggle, hooray! Made in the USA and not in a country where everyone has tiny feet. Pink color as shown.

I love the look and style of this shoe, and even love the color! The length and width is generous and comfortable but the entire footbed is hard, there isn't much give or softness. I wish it were a little more cozy for my aching feet!

I bought these shoes to wear after breaking a bone in my foot. My foot is still healing but these shoes provide the support and protection I need while getting back to walking. I love the bright pink color.

I love these shoes. They don't squeeze my toes. I already have a pair in grey and have worn them all winter. The color is great and I look forward to wearing them!

These are AWESOME! Well made, comfortable, good support. Chucked my superfeet inside and I'm happy! So long Asics - too bad you don't pay attention to your customers.

Good solid sneakers. I wear an 8 1/2 medium and I felt these were true to size. Very comfortable. I am on my feet all day and need some good support and these shoes are giving me what I need.

New balance makes the best sneakers. I use an orthotic in my shoe so I can't really review the arch support. But these 990s are the reason I can work 12 hour shifts on my feet. And the pink is so much fun. I get new sneakers every six months and I'm so happy I could get the pink!! Zappos has the best app and customer service in the world.

I wanted to love these sneakers. I find it so hard to fit my feet. I have wide feet and need the shoes that are styled for over pronation and stability which these are. Sadly they have no arch support. I also bought the New Balance W940v3 which has excellent arch support and is also styled for over pronation and stability. You might want to take a peek at those

This shoe was narrower and shorter than my usual size 9. I sent them back and ordered the same Hoka One One that I had before. Just arrived today and they fit wonderfully! Zappo customer care was wonderful as usual. I love the fact that I can keep trying different shoes without paying the return shipping. This pair could have gotten a better rating if they fit me correctly. Loved the color though.

I always order one size larger in running shoes (I was fitted for running shoes and that’s what they told me I needed to do). These felt really large and loose with no cushion at all. My feet were killing me after running a mile on the treadmill. I tried again the next day with a thicker pair of socks and my feet were hurting within 5 minutes. I normally wear ASICS Gel Kayano but have not found a comfortable pair since the 19’s. Was hoping these New Balance would be the replacement but I’m going to have to return them.
