    "I have been buying New Balance Sneakers before New Balance was a popular brand. For over 20+ years I have bought the 850 series sneaker. My feet are of the "Large Size" 16 4E and it is VERY difficult to find sneakers in my Size. New Balance seem to be the only brand that carries the larger size sneakers that meet the styles of today. I am extremely pleased with your brand and have always recommended you sneakers to my friends."

    "Good-looking shoe, had this type NB before. Older I get, more I hope for cushy shoes. Close but not quite. After months still haven't loosened up across the top. Nice shoes."

    I recommend this shoe in B width for people with a C width foot.

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    "This is the widest B width NB I've ever bought. However, I made it work. I took the thin, flat, mostly useless insert from my NB 1569s and added the insert that came with my NB 928s. I wear orthotics prescribed by my doctor in my NB 928s as an every day shoe."
