These fit perfectly and were extremely comfortable right out of the box with no break in required.

    If you've read other reviews on this shoe you've probably noticed by now that they run the gamut from people totally satisfied to people unsatisfied because of fit issues. I've bought New Balance shoes in the past because they've always fit right out of the box. The sizing was always correct. No more. They're all over the map. Before ordering this shoe I read other reviews on it on Amazon and other sellers websites and many people recommended getting a size wider. I ordered a size wider and guess what? They were too short.

    The problem here is one of quality control for sizing. The shoe seems to be constructed well enough but, as you can read from the other reviews, the sizing is not consistent. So what do you do? Return it for another pair of the same size and hope they fit? Return it for another pair a size larger and hope they have the same sizing defect? I really like ordering from Amazon and I like their free shipping return policy for shoes, but if you really want this particular shoe you need to go to a shoe store and try it on or you'll spend the rest of your life swapping shoes by mail.

    These shoes are a nice build except for the insole which should be replaced right away. It's like a thin piece of cardboard. Fit is tighter than stated. Length is okay but width is just wrong. Even at 4E double wide, shoes start to hurt after an hour. Other brands that I own are Rockport, Clark and Sebago.

    Recently received New Balance MW956 Walking shoes, Out of the box they fit perfectly, very comfortable with good support around the entire foot. Traction very good on sidewalks and little torsion with the foot twisting. (My feet have a tendency to twist when I walk) These shoes help keep the foot alignment straight. Very little fatigue after a 7 mile walk. Considering the shoes are new there was no break in period required. They laces tighten very easily though the "D" hook eyelets allowing for proper tension and support on the foot. They retain the tension of the laces (I have had other shoes loosen after a couple of miles)The Gore-Tek material should keep my feet dry in inclement weather. These shoes tend to breath easy and not much sweating during this hot summer. Overall this is one of the better NEW BALANCE models I have purchased from Amazon and have been very pleased after the first week. Highly recommended. Delivery as most of the products I order as an AMAZON prime member arrived quickly and on time.

    Overall these shoes do what they are intended to. They start out a little stiffer than the 955 but in return appear to offer a little more support. Right out of the box they slipped a bit on the back of my feet but that appears to have improved with the breaking in process. The main issue I had with the 955's was premature heal wear. These are supposedly made tougher to improve on this and time will tell. I've had the shoes about a month and I use them to walk about 3 miles a day on a paved trail. They are serving the purpose quite well.

    I have been so satisfied lately with my New Balance shoes, I was really looking forward to getting my pair of 956. Boy was I surprised to find that they are at least one size too short and at least 1 or more sizes too narrow. I always order New Balance on the wide side, but when a 4E seems narrow something is wrong. These are not the quality fit one finds in their other shoes. Why would they let such a quality problem persist. I cannot recommend this shoe to anyone. If you must order it you better order way bigger and wider than your normal size.

    Size was off at least by 1. Ordered a 13 M and it was at least a 12 M. I've had many New Balance and they have either gotten cheap or are sized incorrectly on purpose.

    Return was handled very well.

    These shoes come a little darker in color than advertized. They are a good fit, seeming true to size like other New Balance shoes I've worn. They felt even better after being worn a couple times. Also, they are well made and it appears they will last a long time. Good price for Gortex shoes. You should be happy with them.

    I've been wearing it steadily since the first day. No break-in necessary. The size was consistent with my expectations and needs. Total comfort, durability, support and pleasing styling. I constantly switch from a walking shoe to a boot, depending on the weather conditions. This product fits my needs perfectly.
