"I just got these today and although I am a bit disappointed that they are not real leather, so far i am finding them quite comfortable. I have walked about 12 blocks in them and they feel like they really hug and support my feet. I am hoping that they will be good for work, where I need to stand a lot. The toe box is nice and roomy. A lot of shoes are not good for me, so I hope that I continue to find these good."
Yes, I recommend this product.

"I traditionally did not like New Blanace shoes because I found the too ridgid and slipped at my heel. I was having foot pain with Brooks so decided to give New Balance a try. I bought these shoes because they were not extremely supported but seemed flexible and supportive enough. After about a month my foot pain went away and I want to get a second pair in a different color for work."

"I have been purchasing New Balance for several years, while the number on the shoe changed in the past, the design and comfort had not. These are the WORST! I was told that the number had changed from 811 to 812, but it was the same shoe. It clearly is not the same shoe. I think the change in the design of the sole of the shoe causes it to be very uncomfortable. I did not try to return the shoes to the New Balance Shoe store where I purchased them because I was sure they would not take them back as I did try to wear them, thinking that they just needed to be broken in. I wear orthotics in my shoes, which normally makes all shoes feel fine, but that is not the case for these shoes. Now I feel like I am stuck with a pair of shoes that I can not wear or return. WHY DID YOU CHANGE THE 811?? Very dissatisfied customer. I purchase New Balance for myself as well as my son, but I will have to look elsewhere."
No, I do not recommend this product.
