    "I have purchased new balance 512 for over 5 years. They are the only shoes I wear. I have alot of foot problems, but these shoes feel great!!! I work in food service, so I do a ton of standing and walking on both cr=oncrete and wet/greasy floors. The slip resistance is wonderful and the shoes are the best shoes I have ever worn!!!"

    BEST shoe I've ever worn!

    "The 512 is hands-down, the most comfortable men's shoe I've ever worn. I also have the New Balance 411, 623v2, 706, 959-- and I like them all right, but the 512 is my absolute, everyday comfort shoe-- surpassing every other piece of footwear I own. I walk several miles a day, and between work & school, I'm either standing or walking on concrete some 10-12 hours a day. The all-rubber slip resistant sole makes for great traction, and the shoe is unobtrusively styled. The leather upper is totally breathable. Now, I always replace the NB insole with a full foot insole (In my case, the Dr Scholl's Work Gel insole), and the comfort & support are total. You might want to get a size a little larger if you're going to do this. These shoes are impossible to find in the stores, and even on-line, the 512s are getting scarce. I'm SO happy that of this writing (Jan. 2015), I'm still able to order them directly from New Balance! PLEASE don't stop making these!"

    Too small. Can't trust sizing.

    "I have large feet. The last time I bought a New Balance product the size that I bought was 14 2E, so when I ordered these, I again ordered 14 2E. This pair, though, is significantly narrower than my old pair, narrow enough that I can only just get them on and they would be uncomfortable to wear for any period of time. I am going to have to return this new pair and I am not sure that I will order a different style of shoe because I can't trust the sizing."
