"I have purchased New Balance shoes for decades, and this is by far the worst shoe ever! It is at least 1/2 inch narrower than others, and much shorter in length. There is no arch support and my ankles roll in constantly. After a couple of hours my feet hurt and are very tired! Do not purchase this one!"

Yes, I recommend this product.
"I was trying to replace and older pair of cross trainers that aren't made any longer. After reading other reviews and doing some research I made the decision that the 1211 was the best choice for my needs. I am so glad I did. They are comfortable, fit well and are everything I need. If I had one "ding" against them I wish they had better stability for lateral movements/steps. The stability is good, but I would like a little more. These are light weight, flex in all the right places. I can easily stay in them all day and be comfortable."
