Thank you for your feedback.
This is the best NB shoe I have had, fits just right, no break-in time, very comfortable, a definite winner.
I have problems getting shoes to fit, but these fit well and feel good when spending a lot of time on my feet.
These shoes fit perfect right out of the box and can be worn as a casual dress shoe.

    Size: 9.5 2E USColor: Grey Verified Purchase
    I've long been a fan of New Balance walking shoes simply because they offer wide widths (EE for me) and the quality has always been excellent. About two weeks ago, I purchased this 928 in both the brown leather and the grey suede, thinking I would send one of them back to Amazon. But I'm keeping them both. The 928 has a wide toe box, so there's plenty of room there. New Balance Men's MW928 Walking Shoe Other NB shoes built on an SL-1 last have less room for toes. This 928 is made on the SL-2 last (which means wide toes). You can see lots more technical info by going to New Balance dot com. The soles of both shoes (the brown leather and the grey suede) are very cushiony and are quite suitable for anyone with knee problems. I can't understand why one other reviewer wrote that they were hard to walk in. Not sure what that means. Perhaps he has some severe leg problems. Regarding the brown leather, look carefully at the Amazon photos, and go to the New Balance web site and look at their photos. You'll see that the natural leather pieces vary slightly in color, which I think makes an attractive shoe. My brown 928s are almost black on the top of the toes, and the rest of the saddle and the heel are a slightly lighter brown, but still dark. So don't expect every piece of this natural leather to be perfectly matched with every other piece. The varying dark/light is very nicely done. Can't say enough about the comfort.
    UPDATE: Wore both these shoes on a recent trip to Finland and Russia. Every day was spent visiting villages, churches, monastaries, Kremlins (yes, there's more than one), many on rough paths and cobblestone streets.

    My podiatrist recommended this sneaker to me because of my having neuropathy and it is the most comfortable footwear I have ever owned (sneaker or shoe) and I heartily recommend it.

    I read carefully through the mixed reviews for the MW928 to get to the root of why people did and did not rate the product highly. I have been wearing this model and its predecessors in black and white for more than three years, having been a devoted Red Wing customer for a decade. This is my first pair in brown, as I rarely can find a 6E in size 12 in stock. It looks considerably different than the black or white, and I am very pleased with how it does not make my feet look as huge as some shoes do. The support is outstanding and the stability is terrific, due, I think, to the bar across the ball of the foot. I have been buying a new pair every 6-8 months, but will probably not need to, having dropped nearly 70 pounds this year. As far as I can tell, this is the best improved model New Balance has yet produced, well worth $100-120 for someone who is very hard on wear.

    Having bought over 20 pairs of New Balance 926/927/928 shoes over the past several years for daily power walking, I have a lot of experience with this particular shoe, which is especially suited for wide feet and motion control to handle walking issues.

    The 928 has much more in common with the 926 than the 927, and that is a good thing. The 927 was clearly designed for longer feet and had a more elongated fit than its immediate predecessor. It also required a considerably longer break-in period than the 926. The 928 does a much better job being true to length, although the initial wear is surprisingly tight in the toe box (I wear 6E shoes). You may want to break in the shoes without orthotics before attempting to walk with them in a brand new pair.

    The shoe is less stiff than the 927 as well, which means a more comfortable fit, although you will need a break-in period with this shoe just like any other.

    Shoe fit and stability are both well-regarded, but there is a manufacturing concern that started about a year ago and carries forward into the 928, and it's unfortunate.

    For those using orthotics or have a particularly bulky foot, initial wear with the 928 is going to be exceptionally tight. But as the shoe breaks in, those of us with wide feet will begin to see the shoe walls stretch outwards slightly to better accommodate our feet.

    Unfortunately, this spread also causes the top of the shoe to push downwards, applying additional pressure along the top of the foot. Unfortunately, where the tongue of the shoe is attached and sewed into the rest of the shoe, there is a slight internal ridge and pressure point. This contributes to even more constriction along the sew point on the top of the shoe.

    These shoes are exceptionally comfortable and well-made. I received them two days before an international trip in which I was walking extensively. These shoes have fantastic support especially for me, as I pronate and tend to walk on the outside of my soles. Even without orthotics, the shoes helped correct my gait and at the end of the day my back wasn't aching.

    The fit in both length and width are spot-on. Get these shoes! You won't be disappointed.
