    The fit was good and the shoe is very comfortable.

    The only complaint I have is that the top of the shoe in front of the laces is a soft fragile material that tore.

    We are very happy with the New Balance shoes we purchased.

    I wear this shoe in my job as a security guard at a college. I walk at least 5 miles a day, 3 days a week, on a broad variety of surfaces and in every weather condition. I have about 25 miles on them presently and have to say that they are the most supportive and comfortable shoes I have used in the past 10 years. I have tried running shoes, walking shoes, hiking boots...in an effort to find a shoe that was supportive and that absorbed shock. My knees are bad and all the walking is hurting my feet also. I am 61, have high arches, use arch supports, have had knee trouble for a long time....
    These shoes are firm like hiking boots (I used Lowa Renegades last)and have a cushioned feel like running shoes. The soles seem to work well when walking from a wet surface such as a rainy sidewalk, onto a dry surface such as a marble floor. My knees and arches are feeling much better because of the reduced trauma to them.
    I am not sure whether these are genuine leather or synthetic leather.
    I recommend them.
    One more thing, I ordered 4E because that was all that was available in wides, and they fit like 2E, so this model must run a bit small.

    I've been a New Balance fan for almost two decades, but I always considered a pair of Airwalk shoes I once owned to be the most comfortable pair of shoes ever (even though all of my NB shoes were not too far from the top).

    That was the case until now. Theses new NB MW968 shoes are perfect and now my all-time favorite pair of shoes! Perfect fit for my long and wide feet. Perfect amounts cushioning surround the entirety of both my feet. The "brown" coloring is perfectly neutral and they work with shorts or jeans, t-shirts or polos, slim socks or thick. Good for mild hiking or just everyday walking on any surface. There is nothing wrong with them from my point of view, and like all of the other NB shoes I have owned, I only expect them to get better as I continue to wear them and break them in.

    I definitely recommend these shoes to anyone looking for a great pair of all-purpose walking shoes!

    Note: Know your sizes for NB shoes! If possible, go to a local NB retail store and get measured using their custom shoe sizer. You will typically save about $10 buying their shoes via the NB store on Amazon compared to prices and taxes charged in their own retail and online stores. If you typically get running or tennis shoes from NB, add 1/2 to the size (length) for their walking shoes. If you have very wide feet, consider the 4E width, or consider the 2E width for just wider than normal feet.

    Fit is fine. Comfortable, no "break-in" needed. If I walk in wet grass more than 10 minutes my feet start to get wet. If they look more grey or purple in the pictures, , , that's the way they are, more grey than brown. If my favorite waterproofing "Snowseal" works, I may order (recommend) more of these shoes. Walk carefully on wet floors, the tread pattern is good for loose ground but not for wet floors.

    This is a great walking shoe, it fits very well and is very comfortable.
    New Balance is an excellent company.
    One word of warning to prospective buyers - learn about shoe lasts. New Balance uses a number of different lasts. This shoe uses a narrow heel, deeper toe box, wider width and has a high instep. This last is MOL-01. This last and the SL-2 last are perfect for me but may not be right for you.

    These shoes were comfortable right out of the box. I have been using New Balance walking, exercise, and tennis shoes for over thirty years and as always bought 1/2 size larger than my dress shoes. I wear mid-weight socks over thin cotton socks.

    A somewhat nice fitting shoe, but stiff, roomy toe box and TIGHT around the collar. Even after loosening the laces, the tightness around the collar was unbearable to wear for two hours around the house. It put undue pressure all around my ankles. So I will be sending these back.

    While walking or standing, the overall stiffness probably contributed to the discomfort in the collar.

    Color Name: BrownSize Name: 11 4E US Verified Purchase
    I bought these as a replacement for my pair of three-year-old MW965's that I wore everyday. The MW968 does have leather uppers and are supposed to be waterproof -- both good things -- but they fit differently than the MW965. I got the same size -- 11 4E US -- but these seem to run a little wider, I might have gotten a narrower width had I tried them on. The padding around the ankle is both thicker and higher than the MW965 so the shoe feels a bit more boot-like and heavier (whether it is or not), and I prefer the lower cut and thinner pading of my old shoes. They do feel more comfortable as they break in, and heavier socks makes the width OK, but I just don't understand why New Balance has to keep changing shoes just to be changing them.

    This shoe was for someone with wide feet and bad knees. The fit was good and the shoe is very comfortable.
    Good support and cushion.
