    We love the New Balance 608 shoes.
    Michael Brazil
    This shoe is very comfortable and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a sturdy, well fitting shoe.

    I bought these for working out and now I can not tie them properly as one shoe has the lace hole torn.

    As the headline says, this shoe is nothing like the "classic 608" that is in fact, the best selling athletic shoe of all time, men's or women's. I learned about this impostor the hard way (so did my wife), by believing what the company, and now the resellers like Amazon are trying to claim, that it "just the new version".

    It's a totally different sneaker; much harder, less cushy, the V2's break down faster, and are made of cheaper components. If you check other websites, you'll see reviews from other loyal NB customers, like myself, who've even bought and worn out a pair of these V2's. The reviews are remarkably similar.

    It's not just a small difference either, it's huge. I keep trying without luck, to get online stores to clearly state "V2", but as you can see, Amazon has not yet done this, I suspect, because the name 608 is literally sneaker legend. The V2 is a disappointing experience, especially if you've worn 30 or more pair of the REAL 608's like I have, starting way back in 1998. It's a disgrace & a misnomer to call this "608 anything".

    Here's how to tell. It's easiest on the white, or any of the light colors, the black is hard to distinguish. Look at the closeup that shows the side of the shoe. The V2 has a gray 'section' of different compound running from the back around to the side, the real 608 does not (this section doesn't show up on the inside of the sneaker, just the outside edge, if you will). The gray 'sections' also appear on the bottom running laterally across the sneaker. If you look at the pic of the tongue of the shoe you can see in small writing it says "New Balance 608V2". It very clear on Amazon's pics.

    One reviewer wrote that they contacted NB and they were told they were made the same way as the 608's.

    I too have worn 608's for several years. When I purchased 2 new pairs last year from 2 different sources, though the number was the same, the arch support in the new ones was no where nearly as good. I tried several other places and found the same to be true on all the pairs. When I called the New Balance Company, they said that they didn't understand because the old ones and new ones were made the same way.

    I am a long time user of the WX608 and recently tried the WX608V2. The WX608V2 looks nicer, but is a very different shoe. If you are looking for a shoe with great arch support and great for plantar fasciitis, stick with the WX608. I also found the WX608 on sale in store at Sears for $29.99. I can't find a price anywhere near that on the Web.

    If I had read the reviews before purchasing this shoe I would've saved myself some money and aggravation. Stupid, stupid, stupid. The shoe is a hard, stiff mockery of the old 608. This is the end of my association with New Balance. Shame on you!

    I am a large woman and have had a lot of trouble finding shoes that fit, shoes that are comfortable and shoes that I can walk in that don't cause knee pain. This shoes works for all those things. I have a size 11WW foot and they are wide enough and have caused no blistering or rubbed areas on my feet. They are very comfortable and when I walk the soles provide plenty of cushion. I have bad knees and have not had a pair of shoes that I can walk in for any distance without pain after sometimes 20 feet. These shoes give me the support I need to correct my stride and allow me to walk distances I have not pain free for a long time.

    It was as described. I wear size 8 so that is what I ordered. fits really well. had a little problem with the tongue of the left shoe digging into my ankle. I just "squished" it around for a little bit, now it is good. I am a nurse in a hospital. I am on my feet 10-15 hours a day. These are very comfortable by themselves, but I do use a gel insert. I have been wearing New Balance for a few years now and have always been pleased with the look and feel.

    I bought these shoes as a gift for a friend. She had been to a foot doctor, and this New Balance shoe had been recommended. After searching for them at the local mall, I found exactly the one we needed on Amazon and much cheaper. The delivery was fast, as expected, and the shoe has helped with arch pain.

    What happened to NB's great arch support? This shoe is no better than a $5 pair of Dollar Store specials. I have always bought NB for the arch support and they don't seem to be making them that way ay more.
