"I wear a 7.5 or 8 EE in an SL-2 last. My previous 2 pairs of NB have been 882 and 883, which I love. My new 840's (size 8EE) do not have the cushioning I expected, though they provide a firm platform. They are also wider in the heel, more narrow in forefoot, lower in the instep, and slightly longer then I expected. I would suggest to New Balance that they strive for consistency in their sizing, and the features of the various lasts they use. While I will keep this pair, I would not buy them again."

Yes, I recommend this product.
"My Size: 14 4E Wore these for about 6 weeks without having more than the usual soreness at work, however after those 6 weeks they became unbearable to wear and eventually gave me blisters and foot pain. Overall I had no complaints when the shoes were in good shape, but the fact they only lasted me 6 weeks is annoying. Note: I weigh 270lbs, so that may also have something to do with durability. Final Deduction: I recommend this shoe to average weight people that want a good comfortable shoe. Only recommend to big and tall people if they don't mind the durability issues. P.S. Do not, I repeat do not purchase the New Balance 577 Walking Shoes, I just purchsed those, broke them in, and they still don't provide as much support and comfort as these shoes did. - Justin P."
