    Great Shoes

    "Great shoes! Bought them to wear every day to provide good fit and support. I have very narrow feet and these fit great in the arch and heel area. However, as with all NB shoes I've worn, the toe bed is a little too wide for me. Still very comfortable, but looks too big in that area of the shoe on me."

    "These are the only walking shoes I wear. I walk every day on my lunch hour and I have plantar facitis. These are the only shoes that work for me. They're comfortable and hold up very well. I always order them online and I receive them VERY TIMELY. Thank you NB!! :)"

    Love the rollbar!!

    - Pittsburgh, PA

    "I have purchased this exact shoe the last 4 or 5 times I've bought my shoes..I have terrible feet problems, having reconstructive foot surgery on one foot and broken ankle on the other.. These new balance shoes are the way to go!! I get the much needed support that my feet and ankles need, from these shoes!"

    This shoe has a roll bar that does not let my fool roll in. It also comes in 11 narrow which is a very hard shoe to find.

    "I have very flat feet and the 857s are the only shoes that I can walk around in all day. Jan"

    This is the only place I can find a comfortable, attractive shoe in an odd size and also accomodates my orthotics. I don't know what I would do witho

    - Northampton, PA, USA

    "these shoes are attractive, comfortable and accommodate my orthotics as well as an unusual size. I wear them all the time all year round. They are probably the first pair of shoes that have fit me correctly in my whole life and have helped to relieve pain. My foot doctor also gives them a thumbs up."

    As always, comfortable from Day 1.

    - Bellingham, WA, USA

    "I have been buying nothing but New Balance shoes for over 10 years. They are the only ones available in very wide sizes. Excellent quality--they last for years. As always, they are comfortable from Day 1."

    Love the shoes BUT...

    - Denver, CO, USA

    "Shoes are great but I am disappointed with the selection of EE width shoes for women. And why are women's shoes always pink or purple...yuk! How about some red or green or anything but pink, purple, white, black!"

    Very comfortable. Great fit.

    - Hammond, IN, USA

    "I bought these for my fiancé, who works as a CNA. She loves them and thinks they are probably the best she has ever worn for work. Got another pair for casual use."

    Just hope you keep them in stock for I know they work for my feet.

    - West Point, NE 68788, USA

    "This shoe works so well for me have tried a lot of different ones till I tried this one. Hope you don't get rid of it. NB is the only way to go. LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM. Thanks for making a shoe that works great for me."

    Perfect shoes for walking

    - Herndon, VA, USA

    "I recently had surgery on my left foot and was told by the physical therapist to purchase sneakers that are extra wide with stiff soles. I purchased the New Balance extra wide sneakers and have not had any problems wearing them with my healing foot. The extra wide toe box allows ample room for my toes to spread out during exercise, and the cushioned soles offer great support."

    Very comfortable. Great fit.

    - Mahopac, NY, USA

    "It has great lateral stability and ample room in the toe box, which is a must for me. I also had some concerns about how hot they would feel, considering they are all (or mostly) leather, but they have been amazingly breathable - although the real test will come this summer."

    Love this shoe!!

    - Chicago, IL, USA

    "Love this shoe!! It supports my heel and arches perfectly. Of course you'd have to break them in a little, but other than that, PERFECT!!"

    Expensive shoe failed after 3 weeks.

    - Ocala, FL, USA

    "Seam in left shoe ripped out in less than a month."

    Great Customer Service

    - New York CIty

    "I had a problem with a pair of sneakers. I called customer service who worked to replace the shoes while I returned the pair I had. The new pair of sneakers are fine, as usual. Great product from New Balance. Great Customer Service."

    I have very flat feet.

    - Monroe, MI, USA

    "This is the only shoe that I have been able to find in a womans 11AA (857) that does not let my foot roll inward when I walk. I do wear my own intersoles. Since wearing this shoe, I have had very minimal foot pain."
