    "This is the third pair of this shoe that I have bought from NB and I have been very satisfied with all of them. The oldest pair I use now out in the garden as they are so comfortable but alas, after many years of service, are beginning to wear out. I would highly recommend this model to anyone who has a very wide foot as I do."

    "I already own the older version which was MW928 and am very satisfied with it. So, I ordered a new pair of the same. I received MW928v2 which turned out to be a new version. It is a completely different fit. So, I am returning it. The new version is for people who do not require a wide shoe and toe space."

    "Having to have 6E shoes really limits your selection. Finding a 6E shoe that I can also wear to work is even harder. These shoes look great at the office, fit my 6E foot, and are also super rugged."

    Why Change?

    "This is the 2nd week for my new 928v2 and I must say that as per other reviews they may be a new version, but not a better version. Had to move from 2E to 4E to get the correct width. They also do not feel as comfortable as the original version. I don't understand New Balance and their insistence on bringing out new versions of long time models. If it isn't broke don't fix it! Also don't understand bringing out models i.e. boots but not making them only in regular widths, doing away with 990v3 slides with no replacement??????"

    928v2 Did Not Fit Me In Same Size As My 928s

    - Austin, TX

    "I was very pleased with my 928s in the version that preceded the 928v2. I wear a size 16D in the original 928. When I received the 928v2 in 16D, I found them to have the following fit problems: Too narrow in the toe box. Cramped my toes and forefoot. The foot bed and arch were uncomfortable. The redesign makes the shoe look larger than the 928. The number of small ventilation holes has been reduced by around two thirds; a leather walking shoe should have ventilation. All in all, I was unhappy with these shoes and returned them to New Balance for a refund which was promptly credited to me. Then I went to a local retail store that sells New Balance 928v2. My foot measured 16D, but when I tried on the 16D I experienced the same problems as above. So, I tried a 16EE which did fit well, but still had some discomfort in the foot bed. I wore them around the house on the carpet for a couple of days and then decided to take them on the road. The foot bed appears to be forming around my foot and has become more comfortable after five miles of walking on trails and sidewalks. I am hoping these shoes will work out for me in the long run. It is unfortunate this design change was made and caused me a lot of extra work to fit my foot. Lesson learned: Shop in a real shoe store locally where they can measure your foot and give you a better chance to get a good fit. The sales person told me that the 928v2, even with its size change is a change for the better. The heel and sole have a better tread pa tern. The internal arch, roll bar and other functional parts of the shoe are more durable. He did agree the removal of ventilation holes and the re-design made the shoe a little less functional and less aesthetic in design. So, I would recommend this product for people with a need for extra foot comfort and for stability and support. But, be prepared for possible returns and trial and error to get a good fit to your feet."

    Hurting feet!

    - East Machias, Maine

    "I will never by a pair of these again! I wore them for two weeks and my feet were killing me! So--I ordered a pair of the NB 577. I have used these in the past and they are great. I thought that for $134 my feet would feel great, but not so!"

    "My doctor recommended New Balance athletic shoes to help address my chronic problems with planter fasciitis , heel bone spurs and the like. I originally purchased New Balance Men's M1540V2 Running Shoe,Silver/Bl​ue,12 6E and was very satisfied with the manner in which the stiff sole was able to prevent the onset of pain. I ordered these in both black and brown so that I can be comfortable when dresses casually without wearing a tennis shoe style."

    "Purchase these on-line to replace existing shoe of same model. Original was purchased in store - now closed. I've been buying New Balance for 30 years. This will be my last pair. They 'look' the same, but are so cheaply made my first thought was i had been duped into buying fakes. Nope. Just the way things are now. Quality is gone. These shoes won't last 6 months."

    "I've been wearing this shoe, or the previous similar model for a decade now. i change them out every 6 months, used mainly at work. Well the shoe has changed. The pair i bought in june has this very hard band that runs up from the sole to the top of the foot. why only the right shoe, i don't know. wearing the new one is so uncomfortable, i thought well, must have been poorly constructed, so i purchased another pair. nope same thing. so now i have 2 pairs of sneakers, that are too painful to wear. Found another manufacturer, going to try theirs."

    "I'm pretty much with all the others that complained about the stitching in this model. It's digging into me Sesamoid bone. I even loosened all the laces to where the shoes were practically flip-flops. No mercy even then. Thankfully, the NB store I bought them from will exchange them. I will miss the 926/7/8 series, as I'm sure the rest of you do. I'm hoping the 813's will be a suitable replacement. I use these strictly for work."

    "I wear the 928v2 every day to work. These look good with dress slacks while providing the support I need for Plantar Fasciitis (dress shoes don't always provide the support I need). Some of my day is spent walking on a cement warehouse floor and these work great. Size and width seem to run true."

    "These are my 4th pair of these and every pair is even more comfortable than the last. I get a new pair once a year. The extra wide size they come in (6E) is what makes them so comfortable not to mention the Roll Bar technology. I usually get them in black, but got the brown ones this time and am very happy with them."

    Nice Shoe

    - gilbert, az

    "Shoe was recommended by the company who made my leg brace. I purchase one pair a year as they are a daily shoe for work....I'm hard on them but they hold up well. Comfortable,, looking and I now have an extra pair for wearing out with casual wear. They easily accommodate the lifts I need in one shoe and the brace with the other. I receive coupons for in store purchases, but ordering on line is better for me as the retail stores are a long drive. Would appreciate coupons for online as well."

    "Been using 92X walkers for a long long time now as my primary shoe and they are still my favorite. Only complaint is the top 4, not only the top 2, eyelets need to be reinforced. I have lost 2 pair prematurely with the laces pulling through an eyelet next to the tounge link."

    "I looked long and far to find this style. It was finally shown to me by one of the NB supervisors. One foot is three sizes longer than the other; the other foot has a collapsed arch, has had four surgeries arthritis at the ankle. I needed shoes that were supportive, sturdy, and comfortable. I now have everything I needed in one style shoe. What would any sensible person do? Yes, I bought one pair in every color available! I'm happy I did. My feet are very 'happy' as well!."

    The MW928BK2 is a smaller fit with a cheaper look and feel than the MW928BK.

    - NJ

    "I require a larger, wider and deeper shoe to accomodate ankle foot orthotic braces. My first shoe to accomodate these braces was the NB MW928 BK. I eventually needed to replace the shoes and found that the available shoe was the MW928BK2. This model is tighter, with a cheaper look than the original shoe. The MW928BK has turned out to be a great disappointment."

    As other reviewers have posted, v2 is not like the previous versions

    - Dayton, OH

    "As other reviewers have posted, when New Balance came out with 928v2, unfortunately, the changes were undesired. I have been wearing the 927's/928's for years, and have always worn the same size every time, and the shoe fit perfectly. When I purchased the 928v2, the associate told me that the feedback had been that the v2 were running narrow. So I went up from 4E to 6E. In the store, it felt OK, as all new shoes always feel tight on me at first. After wearing them for several weeks, the shoe still being uncomfortable, I started to look at reviews. I wish I had done that prior to purchasing. LIke others have said, the shoe runs more narrow. Also, the clearance of the inside of the shoe has been reduced, particularly at the base of the tongue. After 2 seeks, I am still experiencing pain and discomfort wearing the shoe, and the top of my foot is red and painful at the end of the day due to the reduced vertical clearance. I have no idea why NB would make a change like this when the shoe was perfect to start with. Will have to try another style now, or go to another brand entirely."

    Nice shoe, stiching above toes comes apart well before rest of shoe showed

    Not a proper SL2 Last, very tight in toebox

    - SD,CA

    "The 928 is just not a proper SL2 Last, like the 926 and 927 before it. People had been complaining about it so New Balance decides to come out with a version 2 and it is even worse than before. New Balance sizing is suddenly all over the place. I have to buy a 12.5 even though I'm a 12 and the width is way narrower than it should be. We need a 929 with a proper SL2 Toebox!"

    Jun 9, 2016

    Instep is snugger than in the past

    - Orange, CA

    "I have been wearing a version of this shoe for about 15 years. The early versions were tremendous and extremely comfortable. But for some reason, New Balance keeps revising a product that needed no or little revision. This is the first model that may be unwearable for me. The instep is very tight. It seems like the toe box height has been lowered. The model I bought last year was also tight, but I was able to break them in within a few days. For this model, it's been a week and they are still causing pain and leaving a red mark on the top of my foot at the base of the tongue. This is not what a "comfort" shoe is supposed to do. Would not recommend this shoe if you have a wide foot and need height in the instep. Review is for size 10 4E"

    Much too narrow at the front of the foot

    - Falls Church, VA

    "I have been wearing the previous version of the 928 men's walking shoe for years and have been very pleased with it. But the new "v2" version is much too narrow in the front part of the foot - the area surrounding the cuneiform bone. It was painful to try to wear it. Had to return the product."

    Not comfortable, nothing like original MW928BK

    - Fredericksburg, VA 22406, USA

    "I have worn MW928BK for years. They were the most comfortable shoes for working and being on your feet all day. I received the replacement model MW982BK2 and I am very disappointed. First of all they do not look as good as the original and they are the most uncomfortable shoe I have worn in years."

    To narrow

    - Grants Pass

    "I wear all NB shoes because I am an amputee with s wide foot. This shoe is to narrow. I can't wear it with it hurting my foot. Have had it to long to return. Do if you count on the 6D to fit like other NB shoes do not order this one. I was disappointed."

    Poorly constructed

    - Boston, MA, USA

    "I have had 4 pair of the 928 over the years. Then the v2 arrived !!!!!!!!!! I have flat feet and the area where the arch lays against a now higher stiff pad caused a blister. "If it aint broke, don't fix it"! I guess NB never heard of that before. Time for a new Brand, Not Balance."

    Wonderful shoes!

    - Maryland

    Sizes not matching.

    - Minnesota

    "New Balance goofed this shoe up, the sizes are not what they used to be, the shoes are smaller and don't fit. Time to look for another brand. I bought New Balance as they came in different widths and the advertised width matched the shoe. Not on this style."

    - Radford, VA 24141, USA

    "I bought the widest shoe (6E) because I have a wide foot with a rather high instep. I liked the shoe just fine but it really "hugged" my foot like a loving mother. My best guess is just too much padding."

    They work for me

    - Southern California, CA, USA

    "I have been wearing this shoe, or something close to it ,all day every day for years. I want something plain white that I can wear with everything. There are very few shoes made for big guys. I am 6'-2' tall and my weight varies from 275 to 300 pounds. I have custom orthotic insoles to keep my ankle from rolling. I walk 30 minutes a day (about 1.5 miles) 5 days a week, they last about 6 months. Some people think these shoes are expensive. Your feet and comfort are priceless."

    Apr 30, 2016

    Very different sneaker

    - North Charleston, SC

    "I decided to order this style to replace NB sneakers that I had. NB is the only brand of sneakers I can wear because they come in 6 E and their sneakers were the most comfortable. I was not happy with the fact there is a lot of stitching where the tongue of the show meets the shoe itself. My feet get swollen and press against that seam and is very painful."

    Apr 30, 2016

    Just simply the best shoe

    - Hampton Roads Virginia

    "My Dr. recommended the NB 928 a few years ago. My feet have never been happier. I have the black pair, wear them for work, and look good in slacks. For causal office or out in the field, I easily get 2 or more years of heavy use. Well worth the money. Not a fan of how the coupons work though, as it always seems not to apply to these shoes. I'd probably purchase more if they did."

They are easy on and off and great on uneven surfaces as well, offering maximum support. BEST EVER!"

    Not comfortable like the original model

    - Long Island, NY

    "NB changed the model of the shoe this year and the new version is NOTHING like the original model . I ordered the new version online and they are so narrow. I ordered 4E (same as my original pair). They were so tight I went to the store and tried on a 6E...those were too tight too! Be warned, the new model is NOT like the original."

    "What happened to the gray model. I bought a pair of white ones and do not like the color. Why did you drop the 928GR model. It was around for years and suddenly, gone! Why?"

    Okay but not as good as the 925

    - Washington, UT

    "I purchased this shoe as a replacement for a pair of model 925s which I have had since 2006. The 928V2 is supposed to be the equivalent current shoe. My feet tell me it isn't equivalent - not as much cushioning as the 925. The drop dimension seems less also. Other than that the 928V2 is okay, The 925s are still good - my feet have gotten longer so after about a half day of wearing them my toes begin to crowd the end of the shoe. So I change to my new 928s and forge ahead."

    My third pair of this new Balance model I still really like them

    - Minnesota, USA

    "Great for my feet. Provides good support and comfort in all applications. Looks good also."

    Very favorable.

    - Daleville, Virginia

    "Flawless quality, perfect fit, very comfortable; feel like I'm walking on a cloud. Worthy successor to similar New Balance walking shoes I have enjoyed in the past."

    very good shoes

    - Cincinnati, OH, USA

    "This is the 4th pair and third different generation of 928s I've owned. The first ones fit the best, the color wasn't as good but the fit was excellent, on the last generation the fit wasn't quite as good, the main comment would be that they slid off the heel, so that the laces had to be tight to stay tight to the foot, other wise there would be a slight bit of movement between my heel and the shoe. This last version is narrower in the toe, but still has a similar relationship with tightness and heel contact. My first pairs of this family, two generations of styles ago were my favorite, but I'm still happy to have these on my feet."

    mixed reviews--

    - missouri

    "I recently ordered a pair of 928v2 for myself as well as my husband. I had worn the original 928's and was so happy with them. They provided great support for my very flat feet and I was able to use my inserts as well. The new version does not have the support that the old style had, but is still much better than most other styles. The new look has made them much more stylish--the original 928's looked pretty 'old lady'. My husband LOVES his 928v2. He has great arches but does have problems with his knees and hips after a day of work, walking on a concrete floor. The cushioning really helps him to feel better at the end of the day."

    Nice leather shoe

    - Alexandria, VA, USA

    "Have been wearing this same shoe for 8 years, same size, but this pair makes me right foot hurt. I cannot seem to stretch it out or wear it long enough to make it feel comfortable."

    Mar 25, 2016

    Excellent shoe, great value

    - Minnesota, USA

    "Great fit right out of the box, and did not require any break in at all."

    Great Product

    - East Haven, CT

    "I bought a pair of 928's for my oldest son...He needed a pair of BLACK shoes for his job and he has a large foot. 15. Since buying all black shoes in a store is nill, I bought a pair for myself (womens). Upon receiving the shipment my husband was jealous. After a week of wearing both pairs, both my son and I raved about how they felt. He insisted on his own pair. They are awesome and feel great!!! For the whole family!"

    Not quite as expected but we fixed it.

    - Portland, OR

    "Actually, these shoes were 1/8" narrower in the toe area than my current pair so I had to take them in to be stretched. They're okay now."

    good stuff

    - keyport nj

    "i have been wearing the 928s for about 4 or 5 years now and they are wonderful. only set back are the laces, they do not stay tied and ave to be double knotted. if you are not careful and just slip them on you will ruin the fam padding at the top of the heel, but i overlook that for the overall comfort of the shoe."

    The shoes hurt my feet

    - Ohio, USA

    "I don't understand why. I have a pair of the exact same shoes that I bought from the store in my area and they were fine. I still have them. I noticed the new ones don't have 'air vents' around the front and side. They are wider so I wanted to put the pressure relief insert inside. They wouldn't fit and really made the shoes seem smaller. The old pair are 4E and the inserts fit fine. So, I just don't get it unless this is another version and I chose the wrong one. I love the old pair. Same model, 4E."

    Great style

    - Linthicum Heights, MD, USA

    "I use them for work as i am on my feet most of the day and they have always been a very comfortable shoe"

    Mar 16, 2016

    Great shoes

    - Olathe, KS, USA

    "They took a little more time to "break in" than my first pair. However, once I got used to them, the shoes are very comfortable. I should mention that I had worn my prior pair almost every day for 2 years."

    The new and unimproved 928

    - Los Angeles

    "Okay, so New Balance makes the best shoe for older folk who need wider sizes and deeper toe boxes and insteps, to handle orthotics. It's the only shoe from any manufacture that did this correctly. We have been buying THIS model series (925, 926, 928) because they fit comfortably. They DID, is the key phrase. Then New Balance came up with something called MW928v2. This is NOT the same shoe. This is narrower, not as deep, and plain doesn't do what this model is supposed to And if you're already wearing a're now out of luck. There's now no longer a shoe you'll be comfortable with. No one EVER purchased a 928 because they look good. They don't. Hey NB...v2 doesn't look good either. And now they don't fit. Way to go. This is New Balance. The FIT must be most important, not the look. There's going to be a lot of older folks with sore feet because of this change."

    Great style and comfort.

    - San Clemente, CA

    "The shoes have a good mixture of leather and mesh. The color is a brilliant brown, not gaudy, but stylish. Fit is true and very comfortable especially the cushioning of the sole."

    Satisfied in Oneida

    - Oneida, NY

    "The fit is good and the shoe is very comfortable. I am a little disappointed in the color and style compared to the picture. I would recommend the product and will certainly consider another purchase."

    Sixth Pair - Highly Recommended

    - Annapolis, MD, USA

    "My sixth pair of NB 928's just arrived. I have worn these shoes for walking everywhere for years. NB changed the construction some, but the fit still works for me. I also have a pair of Match Mephisto, but do not like the fit as well at the NB 928."

    Feb 18, 2016

    nice looking shoe

    - Henderson, NV, USA

    "Really comfortable and not as bulky as 928. Little narrower thru toe area so not as roomy for orthodics but overall great shoe."

    Feb 18, 2016

    Good to very good

    - Michigan and some other areas, but mostly Michigan

    "Worn this brand for many, many years and have no complaints."

    OK, but changed from original design.

    - Annapolis, Maryland

    "I bought brown 928v2 to replace a 3 year old pair of the original. At age 74 with gouty joints, NB 928 have been a good solution for walking 4.5 blocks from bus stop to work and for other general exercise and sight-seeing walking. The wide toe-box is a plus in my case. For my original 928's I went a half size larger than my foot measurement to accommodate occasional foot swelling. The lacing system permitted tightening excess space. The leather shoes loosened. I considered going back to size 10.5 for the new version. A review by another buyer stated that the shoes run narrower in the body. I stuck with ordering 11 instead of 10.5. I found that the construction has changed - narrower from behind the toe joints to the heel. I almost sent them back, but NB allows return within 30 days, so I wore the new shoes in my house for a week. I found that the shoes began to adjust to my feet. The two snug spots relaxed. I have since worn the new 928v2s comfortably for work and exercise walking. Today, I have ordered a second pair - black."

    The Leather 928v2 in brown looks great and is very comfortable.

    - Urbana, IL

    "I recommend the 928v2 to anyone -- especially to people who have had pain in their heels."

    These shoes provide all day comfort essential for meeting the demand of my physical therapy training.

    - Mississippi, USA

    "As part of Physical Therapy to heal an injured back my Dr recommended a dedicated waking shoe meant for all day use. In previous experiences, New Balance quality has been second to none with their running shoes so it was natural for me to look to them for a walking shoe. These shoes provide day long comfort and are instrumental in alleviating end of day fatigue in my feet and legs."

    Very good shoe

    - Trevose,Pa.

    "But had to send back to you on Feb.2,2016 He wanted an other style.You received them on Feb.5,2016 from UPS!!!!!!!!! Thank You."

    I prefer the original 928.

    - Albuquerque, NM, USA

    "It's is a decent shoe, but the toe box was larger on the 928 (v1) and I won't be buying the v2 again."

    Feb 3, 2016

    The stitching in the tongue of the shoe was flawed.

    - Unsure what this means

    "The stitching in the tongue of the shoe was flawed rubbing against the top and side of my feet. I could not wear them and returned the shoes."

    Jan 28, 2016

    Great shoe for those with wide feet, need large toe bed, and need support.

    - Vero Beach, FL, USA

    "Have tried many shoes to find a wide toe bed and give me the support and cushion I need. I have now been wearing the 928 series for 10 years. Last year when I went to buy they did not offer the leather in white. I was delighted when I went to buy in 2016 the 9282v was in leather. Already wearing it and same qualities of previous versions. I buy two pairs and switch them out between walks."
