New Balance, is dedicated to helping athletes achieve their goals. It's been their mission for more than a century. It's why they don't spend money on celebrity endorsements. They spend it on research and development. It's why they don't design products to fit an image. They design them to fit. New Balance is driven to make the finest shoes for the same reason athletes lace them up: to achieve the very best.

If I had ordered the size that I wear I would have been very unhappy. You need to make a note when ordering the NEW
BALANCE shoes that would save a lot of return processing.
The Velcro Works Perfect!
My right foot is larger than my left, and thus I have an issue. Sizing is so variable amongst shoe brands, and even within a brand. I take a 7.5 on left and an 8 on right--so it is always a compromise. Physical shoe stores don't seem to have depths and breadth of inventory anymore so it is difficult.
I had an old standby but it got discontinued, and quality always deteriorates even if can get the same item as before. Sigh!
Buying a shoe is more difficult than buying a car, perhaps even as difficult as buying a mattress.
I give these shoes 2 stars because the overall feel on the rest of my foot is OK and the price is good but the jabbing and constant rubbing on the back of my heel is awful.
I am done with New balance after ordering their shoes since the 1980's. They have sold out apparently like so many other companies and now make an inferior product. The company tells me this is normal wear and tear. But I know differently because I have ordered numerous NB shoes in the past and they always lasted a couple years or more before falling apart.
There are less expensive, better shoes available.
I got these because where I work, various oils get on our shoes. After about a month, your shoe strings are so saturated by oil, that everytime you tie your shoes, you got to wash your hands because they're marked up with oil. That's why i went with Velcro.
The shoe itself. Not the New Balance I remember. Since I hadn't bought a pair of NB in about 3 years, I tried on a pair at the shoe store to verify my sizing. I had to go a half size larger than what I used to wear. The pair as a 500 series shoe selling for $50. It was everything I remembered about a NB shoe. It was like walking on a cloud. Anyone who buys New Balance shoes knows that feeling, it's so sweet. If that shoe I tried on had velcro, I would've gotten it. Knowing my size, I got home and ordered these . . . a 400 series shoe for $60. Not thrilled about the price, but it's velcro and stores around here don't carry velcro.
I get the shoe, and try it on and it fits perfect, but there's no, "walking on a cloud" feeling. It feels like a basic $30 walmart shoe. It's nothing like the new balance I remember. I wonder if I should have tried the 500 series shoe that sells on here for the same price, it's assembled in America also. I went with this because I liked the look of it better but if I had it to do over, I'd probably try the other one.
Don't get me wrong, they don't make my feet hurt, they just lack that feel of comfort that's usually synonymous with New Balance.
