"Just brought these last night and am wearing them here at work ...so far. 4 hours in and I am feeling great. I have heel pain/plantar fascitiis for the past two months. I am on my feet , working in a gym and today is the first time, in a long time that I can actually sit, then stand, and not limp my way around. Do I still have pain? Yes, but its at a minimum that I can deal with. I am pleased with these sneakers and plan on getting another pair this weekend as these will stay here at work. :)"
Yes, I recommend this product.

"Narrow shoes are hard to find in stores. Ordered this hoping it "might work". I can't believe how much I love this shoe. Fits perfectly and feels like I'm walking on a cloud. I'm now a New Balance "for sure" customer!"
Yes, I recommend this product.

"I was recently told that I had fallen arches & bad arthritis in my ankles by my orthopedic surgeon. These shoes have realigned my ankles & given my arches support. I' m getting ready to order a black pair for fall."

895v2 Less Comfortable Than Previous Version

"I bought the 895v2 because the earlier version is no longer available. This version is cut differently. The front tongue is cut higher while the back heel and sides are cut lower. The higher cut around the tongue results in a rub on the front part of the ankle where my foot bends while the back rubs lower on my back heel.
I had a little more difficulty putting on this pair of shoes and it seems like they are slightly heavier than the earlier version.
I'm going to keep them - because I'm too lazy to return them - and hope they loosen up with wear. I would not order this version again."
Yes, I recommend this product.

I loved the look, but my feet hurt for a week after a really busy 12 hr. shift

"I have a previous version of these shoes, and I loved them except for they needed more cushioning. So, when I saw these under the category of cushioning/walking, I was excited to purchase them. These shoes are fine and very stylish for running errands and quick shopping trips. If you plan to spend long periods of time on your feet (I am a nurse), find shoes with more cushioning. My feet hurt so bad after a really busy shift, that I had to find someone to cover me the next day! Too bad NB can't make shoes that are this stylish (nobody wants to wear bright white bobos or black Frankenstein shoes) for people who work on their feet!"
No, I do not recommend this product.

"I have never had a problem with New Balance shoes before. I've owned at least a dozen pairs and not once has there been an issue. I work on my feet all day and only buy New Balance shoes since they are the comfiest...or so I thought.
I wish I had returned them the second they arrived. I tried them on and noticed that they were very tight around my forefoot but thought that if I wore them a few times that they would stretch out, but boy was I wrong. After just a few hours of wearing them I had to take them off because I had lost circulation in my toes. After a full 8 hour day of wearing them at work, my feet felt like they had been crushed in a vice. I don't have super wide feet, nor do I have super narrow feet.
My feet have NEVER hurt so bad in my life!!!"
No, I do not recommend this product.
