I needed shoes I can walk eight hours a day on concrete. These were great , for three weeks. I could feel them collapse , not sturdy at all. THe sides are even smooshing down. I liked New Balance a lot and was glad to finally find wide, but I guess I'll have to search for something more sturdy :(
It seems that the right shoe is much smaller than the other. I always wear new balance shoes and was surprised that they seemed to have a defect. I've worn them and can't return them - just disappointed in these ones. ??
I have arthritis and have a really difficult time finding comfortable shoes. New Balance rarely disappoints. This model is no exception. The WX608 is a n3at looking show to wear in many settings. Unlike many other athletic style shoes, they hold their shape and don't look work quickly. I have been wearing them over a month and still very happy with the style, fit and especially the comfort. I highly recommend it!
This is my second pair of New Balance shoes.My first pair I bought at a full service shoe store,I was measured.(They were way more expensive too) Though I liked those shoes,after wearing them for a couple of years I always felt my toes were cramped by the end of the day.Last year I was in a different full service shoe store and I was measured again , and was told to go up 1 size. So I have been slowly buying shoes in the larger size, 12. I'm a little leary about buying shoes without being able to try them on first,but I needed a new pair for a vacation, and couldnt find New Balance 12W in the stores,so I took a chance on ordering these. I'm so glad I did! I got these a few weeks before my trip and wore them to work.Im on my feet all day. These were so comfortable .I wore these on my trip to London and Paris, I did A LOT of walking. They held up great in the rain or shine . And I'll be wearing them to work again. Well made, plenty of comfort and thick soles(d idnt feel the cobblestone pavement)& room for my orthotics.
I am a retired Sr. Citizen and have been looking for an all leather pair of these. I do not like the sneakers with the mesh. I purchased them in white and loved them so much that I have purchased a black pair. I am beyond dressing for style-I dress for comfort and these shoes are just what I was looking for. Plus, I have always liked New Balance products. They wear well.
