Rated 3 out of 5 by washingtoncounty2012 New balance 608s
The size runs small, order next size up in length and width from what you usually wear. Then they are very functional and comfortable. I have bought 4-5 maybe 6 pair over the years
I use a pair when on a NordicTrack ski machine and another pair for leisure. I have had problems with the black rubber piece on the front (two pair) and the left rear sole on the left shoe ( one pair) becoming unglued. Maybe just a case of you get what you pay for.

The shoes are comfortable and fit well, I can walk many miles in them and not feel foot fatigue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mrtallyman Not the Same NB's as Before
I bought a pair of New Balance shoes a couple of years ago and found them to be the best fitting, most comfortable pair of athletic shoes I have ever owned. LLB had these on sale a few months ago and I decided to purchase them based on my experience with my first pair. These shoes are a good, but not great, replacement for the originals. They are WHITE with minimal blue markings (NB). I like my "tennies" with a bit more color - like my first pair of NB's. These are also taking some time to break in. I do not recall having any break-in period with my first pair. The fit is, however, "acceptable." The bottom line is that I do not like this particular model as much as my first pair of NB shoes. I will keep them, but will probably not wear them as much. Did I mention that these are very, very WHITE (kind of like "old man" shoes)?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tsirk Great shoe
The New Balance sneaker is an excellent sneaker. We have been only been buying this brand fro several years now. Once we knew we could buy them from LLbean it was a no brainer because of their return policy. 5 star all around!

Rated 5 out of 5 by xwedderman seem good
If they don't squeek/squawk like the last two pairs have done, I will be happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FourSeasonLover Comfortable right out of the box
No break in necessary. Excellent fit. Goes good with Beans mid-weight socks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EasyBCG13 Good product, comfortable fit
New Balance makes a great shoe and by following LL Beans advice on ordering next size larger, you have a good fit. Price is good, you can order from a good selection and free shipping.
