My feet are narrow. New Balance provides narrow sizes. But the only New Balance that LLBean carries in narrow is in the white color. I really needed workout sneakers & hoped I would like them in white so I didn't have to pay $100 or more. They're nice shoes and felt comfortable but I just couldn't stand the color so back they went.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Catladyinmass Love these Sneakers
This is my third pair of these sneakers. I love them. I work out every day and need to replace my sneakers about every six months. These are the only ones I will buy. The fit well. They are comfortable and they don't break the bank.

Not my Fav NB. I prefer the comfort of 847 but wanted the leather style of this shoe,I am trading a bit of comfort but own the 847's also for long days.

Really like these sneakers - they are comfortable and have lots of support. I even was able to put in my Super Feet insoles in them which gave me even more support! Wore them for a trip to Vegas with all the walking we were going to do and they were great!

I purchhased these sneaker to replace an older pair of New Balance sneakers. I was a bit nervous since LL Bean was reccomending to purchase 1/2 size larger, but I took the chance and I am very happy. A half size larger fits wonderfully. I am very happy with the support and I like that they seem to be very well made. Buy with confidence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by asdplus3 Just what I wanted!
I am an active, almost 50 yo mom and teacher. I have been looking for a pair of white (not grey or fluorescent something), leather (not mesh) walking shoes that I could also use at the gym. Why is white so hard to find? My other challenge is size. I am that awkward 10.5 which is rarely available. Therefore, I buy either a size 10 or a size 11, depending on the make of the shoe. Following other reviewers suggestions to buy a half size up for New Balance shoes, I chose the 11. There is a little extra room at the end, but not enough to bother me. They comfortably support my foot in every other area, so I can deal with a little wiggle room. I am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beangarb 608's I've missed you!!!!
I am so excited to be wearing these wonderful, comfortable shoes again! I had several pairs of the 608s years ago and loved them! Other styles replaced them, but they were always my favorite. Low and behold, I saw them on the LL Bean site and ordered a pair!! Same comfort and feel from the original style from years back!! Thank you, LL Bean, for bringing them back to me!!! I may order another pair!!

These sneakers are comfortable right out of the box. No breaking in is necessary. You do need to order on 1/2 size up. I normally wear a 9 1/2 but in New Balance you need to order up a 1/2 size. LLBean knows what they are talking about with the sizing.

Right out of the box, it was good to get back into a workout shoe that gives my feet (and my body) the stability I need for working out (I lift weights and do video workouts involving cross-wise moves.). The trend in the past few years has been toward mesh shoes that are probably cheaper to manufacture and to ship, and that also die after a short time. These shoes are leather, so my feet aren't encased in plastic and I won't get athlete's foot. I used to wear size eight and a half in New Balance, but followed the instructions and ordered a half size up; they fit perfectly.
