I had worn this same shoe for a long time (years) and it fit and wore well. This new shoe doesn't seem to be of the same quality. It is not as comfortable and just doesn't seem as well made. Don't know why--it was said to be assembled in the U.S. Didn't say where the parts were made. The first pair that came I had to send back for exchange for a half size larger. That is o.k. now.
I wear these shoes all the time, my foot doctor recommends the brand and they seem to help. I bought black so that I can wear them to work since I work in an office and that they blend in better with my work clothes. No complaints yet.
I wear these shoes when I plan on being on my feet a lot, like shopping, gardening, or just walking my dogs. They give me the support I need because I had both my ankles fussed and these come up high enough to give me support.
very well made and I will buy these sneakers again
The sneaker is an all around good quality product. I do a lot of walking in all kinda of weather and I find it very durable. I would suggest that when a customer purchases any sneaker you would offer a choice of shoe laces. Please add elastic laces as a choice. Thank you.
I wear this product all the time. It is the only shoe that fits. I have severe degenerative disease of my ankle and must wear a leather support all the time. Finding a shoe that looks nice and fits over the support was very difficult. I had to order the EE size in order to get it on. I removed the insole turned it upside down and used it in the other shoe to make it fit better. I will order this shoe in black to wear with dress clothes this winter.
I have worn this brand and style of shoe for several years. Used to they would last a year or more, I would get a new pair only because the tread was worn smooth in spots or they were too dingy for anything but mowing the yard, and that is what I would do with the old pairs. However the last 3 pairs I bought lasted only 6 months each. The first the upper split just above the sole, I thought because I crunched through some ice-crusted snow. The second pair, the coating on the leather peeled off in several places and then the sole separated from the upper down the side of the toe. This last pair, the tread layer has separated from the sole core from mid toe to arch on one side of one shoe, is bubbled in the middle of the ball of the foot of the sole of the other and, again, the outer coating of the leather is flaking and peeling off. Used to they were "Made in USA", now they are "Assembled in US". Perhaps,this is the reason the quality has declined, cheap foreign materials. I'm going to try another brand that WW has started carrying that my podiatrist recommended, they cost a little more, but if they last a whole year, it will be cheaper in the long run. If not, then I might go back to these.
This is my second pair of these shoes in about a year because they are good for my feet, but they aren't that durable (hence the second pair in a year). The seam along the sole opened, leaving a whole. Also, the WW was still too narrow.
New balance 577 sneakers are the most comfortable sneakers i ever worn.I am a heavy set woman and have trouble with sneakers.I just love these.I bought white and black to go with everything.I highly recommend these sneakers.
Being a diabetic, I have to have shoes that feature a little wider toe than the regular tennis shoe. When I put them on for the first time, they fit like they were custom made for my feet. They are roomy, well made and genuine leather. I had purchased a pair of Reebok shoes that were billed as leather but they weren't! It was a leather blend despite the tag claiming they were leather. After months of wear, they never stretched one bit. I got aggravated and trashed them! I decided to give New Balance a try because the toe of the shoe looked wider. I can honestly say that this company has me for a customer for life now! You simply can't go wrong with this shoe. I promise! Especially if you are diabetic and have problems with shoes being too tight on your toes.
Because I must use Orthotics, there is plenty of room to accomodate these especially in the heel of the sneaker which is higher than most others. I wear these sneakers continuously because of the great support and will not wear any other.
I use these shoes daily. I have Lymphedema and Diabetes which causes my feet to swell especially the top pad area between the toes and the ankle area. These shoes are very effective for when my feet are more swollen. They are comfortable and don't caust pain when I walk.
I wear My shoes everyday. There comfortable and great on my flat feet! I have been looking for a pair like these for a long time.. I have already bought four pairs. Three white and one black.. You can't go wrong with them..
My foot pronates and I have to wear a brace to help stabilize my ankle. I have worn this style for several years and am well pleased. I have to order wide to accomodate my brace. I love the stability of the shoe; and the structure of the sole helps maintiain my balance. This is a durable shoe, and I would not hesitate to recommend this shoe.
A very costly walking shoe /sneaker that could not walk around or keep on more than 20 minutes on a plush carpet. I am in process of returning so I may get credit for an other brand which is more comfortable and reliable.
Gave these as a gift for my 81 year old mother so that she could attend her family reunion. Lots of sight-seeing. She walked all day without any complaints. Said her feet felt good at the end of the day.
