    "I have such a hard time finding shoes for my feet that do not hurt and the 608's are the ones for me. I just went online for the first time and am so happy to get a black pair."

    "These are the most uncomfortable shoes I have ever bought! And to make matters worst, "World Famous Footwear" would not take them back because I wore them 6 days, would never buy shoes there again! Can I please get my money back? Or at least exchange them for the old nonnon "memory foamed" insoles?!"

    "I have been buying New Balance shoes for 30 years. I will probably be finding a new product. The fit is not the same as in years past. I cannot find the right size. I usually get 609's or 608's. My current purchase was the 608 style. I don't know if they even make the 609's anymore. They had the best fit and comfort!"

    Last purchase

    "Very disappointed. Minimal options on size. Where is the 2E that I have ordered in the past. And where is the 11.5 size."

    - Duluth, MN

    "I had bought this shoe previously and loved it. However the two pair I just bought ran small. Pinched toes are no fun so I'm returning both pairs."

    Love these shoes

    - Overland Park, KS, USA

    "I have worn this style of shoe for years but always have trouble finding 61/2 D in pink. Our local store never carries it but has ordered it for me a few times."

    Perfect for work.

    - leominster ma

    "This product is true to its size. The best feature I find is that the insole is removable. I have special inserts that have to go in my sneakers so they fit perfectly with the insole removed. Very comfortable and I am on my feet at work for 10 hours on concrete floors."

    Fit perfect to my feet. Comfortable and wear well. Neutral colors so I can wear them daily..

    - Heeney, CO 80498, USA

    "I am truly a 608 loyal customer. So excited that they come in all different colors. I have several and wear them every day - my job involves a lot of walking. I have tried other styles but always come back to 608. Toe area is wide enough to not pinch my toes. Love them."

    Sizing not consistant

    - Wabash, IN 46992, USA

    "I have ordered NB for years and always order the same size. These shoes were WAY too big and I was not able to return them because I threw away the return slips and boxes. I just assumed they would fit. Not happy!"

    shoes fit well, sole is a little stiff

    - Binghamton, NY

    "I have wide feet and these shoe fit well, I have been buying this type of shoe for a number of years, style changes slightly each year, this is the first time I have found that the sole is stiff feeling and squeeks on wet floors."

    Review of the model #608v4

    - Illinois, USA

    "I've been very pleased with this particular shoe. I've worn in for many years . The basic model of the shoe, hasn't changed alot but it has gotten better on the inside. It fits well and is very comfortable. and holds up well with nearly daily usage. As long as NB keeps this model, I will keep buying it. Thanks NB."

    As always, good shoes, good price

    - National City, CA, USA

    "It is getting harder and harder to find comfortable shoes as I age. Thank goodness for New Balance!! I have fallen but in my New Balance I always feel safe. Wear them for work and strength training class as well as casual wear. If I could find black patent leather ones I'd wear them for dress."

    I love these shoes

    - Mississippi, USA

    "These shoes are very comfortable and I love they had the larger size for women. I have some huge feet and usually have to buy men's shoes but not this time."

    Great shoe!

    - Massachusetts, USA

    Shoes arrived on time and are a perfect fit.

    - Pueblo, CO, USA

    "I purchased the shoes as a gift for my wife. They arrived in time for holidays, and offer the color, fit, and support that she looks for. I'm very pleased with the purchase."

    Poor quality control

    - Louisville, KY, USA

    "I've been wearing the 608 line since 2010. This is the first time I've been disappointed. L shoe is visibly larger than R though labeled same size. L shoe has rubbed a blister on litle toe."

    Dec 21, 2015

    OK so far

    - New Jersey

    "While not the same as an older, similar model, this shoe works well for us wide width folks. It could be a bit wider to fit inserts, but it does the job. It is supportive of the ankle, which many cross trainers don't really do anymore."

    - Kenmore,ny

    "Nice sneaker,wish it was a little more heavier. The reason is I have bad knees and the heavier the sneaker the better for me,but I like the style."
