This was the worst purchase I have made from LL Bean in 40 years. It appears the quality control people failed to do their job when this product arrived at LL Bean. The shoes were too small and too narrow for the size indicated. This should have been discovered. It also appears New Balance didn't have any quality control wherever the shoes were manufactured.

I ordered my normal size 9 shoe but these need an additional 1/2 to 1 size larger

Rated 4 out of 5 by RadioWriter SMALL!
As others have noted, these shoes are extremely small! I ordered a half-size larger than normal and could not get my feet in them I returned then and got a full two sizes larger than I normally wear and they fit well.
But honestly, two sizes larger than normal? This company needs to revamp their sizing.
Otherwise, great shoe: comfortable and lightweight.

The shoes are great once I got the correct size. Started by ordering size 11 and kept returning them until I had a size 13 that fit correctly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Spark43502 Need better quality control
New Balance needs to revamp their quality control. Having a pair of this same series (#) of shoe from several years ago, I decided to purchase another pair to replace the old ones. I ordered the same size as the previous pair. These new ones were very narrow, I could barely get my foot into them when I removed the laces completely. The length was fine, it was the width, and they were suppose to be a Medium width. Obviously the shoes were returned. I have not been happy with New Balance in the past couple of years as this seems to be my experience with their shoes as of late. The shoes look great, they just need to get their act together on consistency in sizing/manufacture.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Wicker1951 Too small
I wear a 10.5 shoe. I order and 11 and they are still too small. Otherwise they are great shoes. I will probably order an 11.5 to see. Other similar shoes have been comfortable from day 1. Use a shoe horn so the backtop of the shoe does not wear out so fast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by saltwaterflyfisher Great Shoe, short on length
I ordered two pair of shoes, both the same size and width, however this shoe was shorter than the other and shorter than any other shoe I have. My suggestion would to go one size up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LifeLongLLBeanShopper2112 Buy - but beware
The shoes are great. I have cranky feet, but the shoes are very comfortable and I would recommend them,
One warning - Order One Full Size - Length and Width - more than you usually do. I ordered one-half size larger, and they were still too small. Luckily, I have a retail store nearby that had the next size larger.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Maridani Wrong size
New Balance does not keep consistent sizes. I had ordered shoes in the past with 4E width but these came much too narrow. Had to send back because they had no wider size.

Rated 1 out of 5 Extremely small
So disappointed. These looked & felt like great shoes. Especially for my job in healthcare where i stand 15 hours a day. I essentially wear a size 12. Sonetimes 11.5. These 12's were so small I could barely get in them. Returned them & will stick with another mfr that is more true to size.
