Rated 3 out of 5 by TheMoog Rip easily but stylish
Got these for my husband. He really enjoyed the look of the brown ones and said they were rather comfortable. Unfortunately, this is our fourth pair in under a year... The suede is not very forgiving if your feet are even a little wider than a wide and they've ripped on each pair within 3 months with moderate to light walking (desk work, errands, one walking adventure lasting 3 hours).
We loved the look and the fit so much we kept returning and getting new ones... but this four pair was the last straw and ended up order the New Balance pair that comes in a 4E.
So, if your feet are a little boxier you might want to go that route, other wise, this is a great pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KateD Runs Small
I got these for my husband and he was able to put them on and wear them all day without having to break the shoes in. They do run about half a size small but didn't want to go up from a 12 to a 13. With luck they'll break in and won't feel short. Leather uppers but the tongue is mesh. He initially hated it but now loves the comfort. There's also a side mesh panel for mid-foot flexibility. The heel is supportive and flexible which is great. Would buy them again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Digger4Glory Order Up
I have been wearing New Balance cross trainers for over 25 years. For whatever reason they changed their sizing. Whatever your regular size is order up. I ordered up a half size but a full size would have been better. My Dad had to do the same thing and he ordered a full size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Casimm Great shoes, very happy.
I've bought three pairs so far. One every couple of years. I do a lot of walking, traveling and banging around. I am not easy on the shoes too. Probably buy another pair pretty soon, ready to blast-off for another long journey soon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BurroBurro They squeak!
These have been my go-to sneakers/walkers for many, many years. The last pair I bought developed a very noisy squeak in the right shoe when walking on any hard surface, The loudest squeak I ever heard from a shoe, like a cartoon squeak! I tried drying the shoes thoroughly, using powder, and inserting new insoles - nothing worked. It seems like the problem is actually inside the sole of the shoe. I eventually retired them to walking my dog (usually on grass) duty, and decided to give New Balance another try since I had worn these for many years.
Well, there it is again, not quite as loud (yet), but this time in both shoes. Squeak, squeak, squeak, squeak, squeak - who could stand this? I might actually take them back. I ordinarily would never take shoes back, but someone has to let New Balance know that something is haywire in the manufacture of these formerly great shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LAKG Husband loves these!
My husband loves these. Very comfortable--he's thrilled. He has wide feet, and 11.5 wide fit him perfectly. True to size!
