Rated 1 out of 5 by Ohmoh Not leather
Advertised as genuine leather uppers. Only one small part of the uppers is leather, all the rest is man made. The shoes feel cheap. will return, didn't even try them on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by smith54 not "leather" shoes
These shoes are advertised as genuine leather upper, but they are not leather AT ALL. The whole shoe is some kind of synthetic material! Definitely NOT worth the money. Then, to top it off, the insole will not stay flat inside the shoe! Extremely annoying, especially when on a long walk. I will be returning these...

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeaner10 Good work shoe.
This is my second pair of the New Balance 608's both in suede. I am on my feet at work for 8 hours a day and this style gives the support and coushion I need. My first pair I sized up a 1/2 size as recommended and they are ok even with an orthotic in them. (When I tried to move the size bar it didn't work!) The second pair I decided to size up a full size to see If that will give me a little more room in the toe box as I have hammer toes. I may have to exchange them but with Bean's wonderful return policy I thought it was worth a try. I've washed and air dried my first pair weekly since I received them in Oct. and they continue to look like new. I'm not seeing any wear on the soles and I walk on a concrete surface?

Rated 5 out of 5 by FriendOfCats very comfortable
Was told to order 1/2 size larger, My size = 8, ordered 8 1/2 wide. They fit very well and are comfortable. I am walking more since there is a rail trail near me now, in Ephrata, PA. I like the long shoe strings, they are plenty long enough to double knot. I have bought several pairs of New Balance and will stick with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanChik Love these!
I ordered these because I've had good luck with New Balance in the past. From the moment I put them on, they felt so great--really cushy! They don't angle your weight as much forward as a running shoe, which is what I was hoping for. The only surprising thing was--I always have to go 1/2 size larger in New Balance, so that's what I did here. These are a tiny bit longer than my others. Not so much that a thicker sock won't take care of it, but just be aware. Hope they stay this great! NOTE--the photo at the top of this review page shows a white leather shoe, but mine are light gray suede with pink trim.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gramkonnie Long and narrow.
Was so thrilled to see that you're carrying narrow sizes. Am very happy with this shoe. Hope that you'll expand other styles in AA (narrow.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by IdwthaN great for short wide thick feet
It's very hard to find shoes for my kind of feet, so I am grateful to have found these. I am about to order the second color. Comfy, solid and nice looking. They don't look too clunky like most wide sneakers.

by Jen2302 Defective
I purchased the gray and pink in 6.5 wide because I needed something my broken toe would fit into. There was extra room even with broken toe but after wearing them for a little while, I noticed that the right shoe looked narrower than the left. They are both labeled 6.5 wide but the left shoe is almost 1/2" wider the whole length of the shoe. The weird thing is the right shoe still had extra room in the toe area like it was wide width so I think they were defective and not just mislabeled.
