    The first pair of sneakers I ever fell in love with. I can wear these all day and not have any issues.

    "When I got my first pair of these a few years ago, I had to return them because they were too tight but I loved the way they looked. So I changed the size and fell in love with them. I have been wearing these since then for casual wear. I miss the variety of colors so much. I do wear other types for my workouts. But these are my walking shoes, my going shopping running errands anything shoes. I can't say enough about them. Exept for the colors now. I will wear them till they practically are falling apart. Lol. The low profile is perfect with shorts and Capri's in the summer and jeans in the winter. They do run narrow. But once you find your size they are perfect."

    "I have owned several 442 over the years. I tend to buy a new pair with in 9 months of of each other... I have to say this last pair has not held up to the quality I expect (they are less than two months old) with in the first week the insole would persistently fall out ,the sole has separated from the shoe and The seams are separating in the exact same place on both shoes. I hope I just received A bad pair and this doesn't occur again .. I will perchance another set, once if this happens again. As hard to part with this style ,I will have to then fine a new FAVORITE sneaker:( I hope Quality control gets wind of this problem."

    "I love the 442. I already own 2 pairs of them and I'm going to buy another one. These are my go to sneakers. I wear them on the weekends for my running around and they are my preferred shoes for walking all over disney world and my feet don't get numb or hurt after walking around Disney World for like 12 hours. I can't buy enough of these shoes, I do wish though that New Balance would go back to making them in other colors like they did before cause right now all they offer is black, white, and gray."

    "I love these shoes. I have worn them for at least 5 years now, from college running to classes to all the walking I do in my full time job now. I replace them once or twice a year since I walk so much. These are very light shoes. I fell in love with them because of this; they keep my knees from hurting. There's a decent amount of support in them and they look good. They do run narrow. If you even have an inkling you have wide feet I recommend ordering the Wide; they are comfy and look good, I'd definitely recommend them."

    Great Everyday Shoe!

    "I'm a full-time mother of very young children and a part-time massage therapist. This shoe keeps up. I'm comfortable spending all day on my feet and look good doing it. The shoe is very light-weight and low-profile. It does run a little on the narrow side; one foot was slightly swollen the first time I wore them and I could definitely feel the difference! I definitely plan to purchase these shoes again!"
