Rated 5 out of 5 by DerPooch Great fit and and bargain
I?ve always had problems finding comfortable, x-wide athletic shoes. Since I found the NB-608 those issues are in the past. In fact, I have probably purchased 6-8 pairs of these. I like them so much that I keep a new pair standing by and ready, just in case.
I've retired so these are my everyday go-to shoes. I live in them - including my daily four to five mile walk with Buddy (my chocolate lab). If there was any problem with fit or comfort, I would know it immediately. It?s never happened.
They are comfortable right out of the box, and they retain their fit and comfort throughout their life. The only reason I have ever replaced a pair is when the heel has worn completely down. And did I mention that the price is reasonable?

Apparently I have a wide foot. These shoes accommodate my foot and make walking, climbing and cross country hiking more comfortable than other less wide shoes. No pain or cramping.

I have had good luck with the NB 608 shoe, and I like the brown color because it blends in with my clothes.

Most NB shoes I have had wear out on the back of the heel. This is normal I guess. I have found that when a heel is made too high there is excessive wear. I bought a pair of foreign made shoes similar to the NB use and they had very high heels and after awhile you rocked while walking because of the excessive wear.

I bought the New Balance 608 Cross Trainers in brown to use as walking shoes. They fit well and the actual size was the size stated. They are comfortable to wear and did not need a break-in period. My only complaint is that they don't keep my toes warm in cold weather. The rest of my foot was nice and toasty. But, overall, I'm happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CYost 4E New Balance Shoes
My husband wears orthotics which require a wide shoe -- New Balance through LL Bean usually carries 4E which are almost impossible to find in shoe stores without having to wait for a special order.
He finds these shoes comfortable and light weight and they fit perfectly. LL Bean's Customer Service always goes the extra mile to put the customer first. We truly appreciate that they carry his size.

My husband's extra wide feet are in heaven with these comfy cross trainers. This is his second pair. Stylish, light weight and comes in EEEE width...the price is right too!

The left shoe constricts at the heel. I have had to loosen it.
LL Bean is noted for quality and should talk to the manufacturer.
