" The New Balance 812 double extra wide is perfect for my 23 year old daughter with developmental disabilities. She can work the velcro and put on the shoes all by herself. They are very comfortable, accommodate orthodic inserts, and she gets good wear out of them. From what I've seen, they're the only velcro tennis shoes on the market that fit her wide feet. They're terrific! "
Yes, I recommend this product.

" I bought these shoes for my clinical program thinking they would be more stylish than most nursing shoes. The details said ft walking or for standing on you feet at work....perfect I thought. I was wrong. These does hurt so bad my feet throb at the end of the day. My whole foot...not just one part. My back and my knees are not starting to hurt. They also gave me corns on my foot from the pressure points. I am on my feet all day at my other job and my feet don't hurt near as much and I wear flip flops. I know you need to give them time to break in but it's been 4 months and no change. I sure hope New Balance fixes this issue cause I loved new balance before. Now I'm afraid to try another NB show for anything. These are the first pair of shoes that I have ever had issues with. "

" THe 812 is completely different in fit and size compaired to the 811. Due to the thicker lining and last the same size you used to wear is different. Feels like your walking in your bunny slippers in the 812's. I have been wearing the 811's for over 8 to 10 years and the only complaint I have had all these years are the shoe laces,always about 10 inches to long,almost able to tight them around your ankle. Always had to changed to 38 inches . I guess I now shange ot adifferent brand and shoe ! "
