Thank you for your feedback.
These training shoes are perfect for my husband and this is the third pair he has purchased.
In my view, each new model was an improvement in comfort and stability.
The New Balance shoes hold up well for the price and he finds them comfortable.

    Size: 10.5 D(M) USColor: Grey Verified Purchase
    I purchased the grey, which actually has a suede upper rather than leather. I've worn the 621 and 622 and liked them both. While still a decent shoe, the 623 is not as good. Here's what I don't like compared to the other models: the suede upper does not give as much lateral support - in fact, I have to keep tightening the shoe strings throughout my workout; the shoe runs a little larger than the other models; but most of all, the forefront cushioning is not very good at all. Now, I use my shoes for working out and cross-training, so if you just want a walking/work shoe, this should be fine; just doesn't do that well with heavy pounding. If you get the 623 for exercise, opt for the one with a leather upper - probably better. However, one plus for the suede is that it is cooler and more breathable than the leather, so if you wear all day, something to consider.

    I have purchased dozens of New Balance cross trainers over the years, begining with the 601 or 602. In my view, each new model was an improvement in comfort and stability. When I began using the 623 I recently bought to replace my worn out 622's, I could not believe it. Compared to the 622, this shoe is lighter by at least 2 ounces, less sturdy, has less heelshock absorption, and has less support for the front of the foot. I took several painful 3 mile walks before I decided to toss these 623's. These shoes were a waste of $60. 622's seem to be in very short supply on Amazon and elsewhere. I hope this does not portend discontinuation. If so, I'm going to start stockpiling 622's.

    Made in China, this model did not fit as well as previous NB purchases and is devoid of ventilation. Cheaply made and it shows. Will not purchase this model again.

    I have worn the New Balance series for probably 10 years, or however long they have been around. I wear 13 EEE, and have very low arches (flat fee), and this series (622 and previous) has been the most comfortable and offered the best support of any other shoe I have ever worn. The older ones (622 and previous versions) all had very firm and solid soles, and the body of the shoe itself was very thick and sturdy leather. Perfect for everyday wear and for workouts. I wore them so much that I bought a new pair every six months.
    When I bought the new 623's, I didn't think much about them. The sole is thinner and bends much, much, much easier than the 622 and previous versions, and the body was also much thinner and provided not as much support. But they are NB, so I just put them on and wore them. But I began to notice that my feet hurt more than normal, and I found myself having to re-tie them often as they always seemed to get loose.
    I HAVE NO WAY OF KNOWING IF THERE IS A CORRELATION, but about three or four months after buying them and using the new 623's exclusively and repeatedly, my right foot and especially heel began to hurt a lot. As the pain increased, I ended up at my podiatrist, with a diagnosis of plantar fasciitis, which is a result of my being flatfooted, and also because I am overweight. I never had the condition in the past, and it came up on me very quickly, in a matter of a few weeks. I have had to wear a foot device at night to try to stretch that tendon.
    About a week ago, I wanted to work outside and decided to wear my "old" pair of 622's. I noticed IMMEDIATELY the difference...it was like putting on a different shoe. Much more support and less stress on my feet.
    I have now put the 623's in the closet and wear the 622's all the time.

    I bought this shoe after wearing out my NB 622. That shoe was great. However, NB's 623 really gave me problems. I walk about 5 miles/day and bought this shoe based on reviews. After a couple weeks, I experienced some foot pain. I once had issues with plantar fasciitis on the same foot and I thought I had another flare up. I was about to go to the doctor when I started thinking maybe it was the new shoes. I decided to put on my old pair of NB. I did my usual 5 mile walk and experienced no pain at all. I've been wearing my old shoes and haven't had any more foot pain. It's safe to say, the NB 623 was the cause of my foot pain.

    If I owned stock in New Balance, I'd start selling it, 'cause they won't last much longer making shoes this poorly. These NB 623's, size 7-1/2, were purchased 6/13/11, and made my feet hurt after the first light gym workout. When it happened again after the 2nd workout, I switched back to my 20 year-old Nike Airliners (which I was hoping to replace) for the 3rd workout, and my feet were fine. So it's New Balance, not me. The problem may be with NB's inconsistent sizing. My beloved old size 7-1/2 NB 608's fit like a glove. But these new size 7-1/2 NB 623's are much larger-- identical, in fact, to the size 8 NB 621's that I had previously purchased (and also made my feet hurt, but that's another review). Have never worn a more uncomfortable athletic shoe. And now I'm out $100 on two pairs of unwearable gym shoes, so New Balance has lost a customer for life.

    With the exception of an insole which was moving out of place in one of the shoes on a continual basis (a problem that's been resolved... thanks to New Balance and Amazon), I'm really please with the MX623 Training Shoes. Fit, construction and a most important quality for me, function... all top-notch. I use them for my gym, weight lifting and bike riding workouts. I haven't tried them for running activities; than again, I've got other NB shoes that fit that bill.

    Presuming they hold up as I'm predicting they will, I have not regrets.

    Again, thanks New Balance and Amazon (who promptly shipped out replacement insoles and shoes. Now, that's customer service that's a cut-above!).
