" I purchased these on the recommendation of my podiatrist for metatarsalgia where the ball of my foot becomes painful and inflamed. The clerk at the store was very familiar with this condition. I mentioned I was planning on doing a lot of touring on vacation and he presented these shoes to me and suggested my size in WIDE. They were immediately comfortable...no breaking-in was necessary. They were the most comfortable shoes I have had for walking all through Europe as well as on the treadmill at home. They are lightweight and as comfortable as slippers. I would most definitely recommend these running shoes. "
Yes, I recommend this product.

" I have been wearing New Balance shoes for years. However, I have often struggled with blisters and numbness in my toes. My last pair of shoes were an 8 wide. I decided I would get this pair in extra wide. That did the trick. I have no numbness or blisters. These shoes require hardly no breaking in, as they are so comfortable from day one. I am going to purchase a pair of New Balance insoles for extra shock absorption. "
Yes, I recommend this product.

" I bought these shoes for comfort, support and lots of walking! I love to walk. They are very comfortable from the first time I put them on. Follow the recommendation on the shoe fit. I got a half size smaller than I usually get and they are just right. You can't go wrong! "
Yes, I recommend this product.

" I too read the reviews and ignored all the comments about the tongue pulling to the side, thinking those people must have laced them wrong or some other reason. The tongue constantly pulls to the side on both shoes making them unconfortable and causing the shoe to come untied. I won't buy this style again. "
No, I do not recommend this product.
