These are very comfortable. Recommend them unequivocally. They are at home outdoors or at social events. Get a pair.

The 1978 is a beautiful shoe, and New Balance uses premium quality materials for the uppers. They provide poor support though, and the Vibram soles wore out in three months. It's a shame, because the suede still looks almost new.

Ive been looking for an extremely comfortable sneaker, recently my heels have been really sore. Im guessing its my love for flat sneakers such as Vans. When I put these on, it was as if the pain was almost gone. I was amazed. I am a women's 9 usually and when I look for sneakers I look in both men's 7.5 and women's 9.

I agree with others, offer the better designs in more widths. It's kind of ridiculous.

i concur with the latest review...the laces are long! i wasn't sure if i was supposed to loop them through the leather lace up until i saw recent press photos of the new 1978's doing just that. either way it the laces seem to rub on the rubber pretty hard when lacing the shoes in that way causing easy wear/tear, but, short of getting different laces, it's a must. the ones supplied are very long and will get caught on almost anything. they drop down to the read more

The shoe fits perfectly, looks great, and has about ten feet of shoe lace. It's perfect for looking really fly and then getting your foot caught in a moving walkway or escalator.

I feel the same as the No W writer commented. All the cool colors and styles all are made in Medium!! Many people have narrow feet and can't find the newer styles in narrow.
