Rated 2 out of 5 by womanfencer No Support
Lightweight shoe, could be useful for light gym use, weigh training etc. but wouldn't cut it for street or trail walking. Good support in arch area but nowhere else. Have noticed a trend in women's sports shoes, where support is disappearing and lighter weight matl's are being used (probably to save money). Hoping for a return to real shoes with real features for those of us who need traction, support and durability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SherryLynn Very comfortable.. love these!
I'm glad I read the recommendation to go with a half larger size than usual. They fit perfectly. These shoes are fairly lightweight and extremely comfortable and good for multiple sports and activities.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HappyBoomer Good shoe for Jazzercise
I was looking for a light weight exercise shoe. I found this cardio shoe perfect for the class I attend. I normally wear a size 6 so as suggested, I ordered a 6 1/2 which fits perfectly. Because of my age, I toned down the brightness of the shoe and replaced the neon colored shoe laces. The price is reasonable for a shoe I wear two or three times a week for one hour.

Nice light shoes. I went up an extra size due to recommendations and they are a great fit. I have wide feet and the width was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by earlychildhoodlady Great Support and fit
I followed the advice of many and bought an 8 1/2 when I usually wear a 7 1/2 or 8. They fit me well with cushy socks. I did not find them narrow, but I have average width feet. I have worn them for aerobics, tai chi and in the fitness center on the elliptical and tread mill. They are working out great providing support and comfort and saving wear and tear on my running shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nw395 Great for Zumba!!
These shoes are perfect for Zumba! I highly recommend them. I did order a half size larger because of the previous reviews...they were very helpful and glad I read them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by emsgram For dance only
I ordered these to replace an older pair of NB cross-trainers.
When I put them on, there was little or any room in the ball/toes area of the foot. The tag attached said something about "dance," which is not what I bought them for. I plan to return them to an LLBean store next week.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mimi1947 These trainers run very small
I wasted time and money buying shoes that were merely 1/2 a size bigger than usual. I returned them for a fit one full size larger. I never had problems buying shoes on line until now. Never again for New Balance.

even though slightly small, still very wearable - I spend > 8 hrs on my feet @ work(I'm 62 yo) and these are saving me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeandiscerningshopper These won't disappoint you
Over the years I've learned that New Balance shoes are wider than most. That's why I buy them. I'm in a fitness class that meets in a church basement. We train on a concrete floor that has industrial carpeting. These trainers are springy and comfortable. They are great for walking as well. So far they've held up well.
