These are wonderful. After having two babies, and a bad foot from a horrible sprain in high school, these shoes feel like walking on clouds. I ordered a 12W and they are true to size. New Balance makes the insole. The velcro strap is long which gives you plenty of room, if needed. The style is decent, not my favorite, but better than most "comfort" dress shoes out there today (hence the 4 stars).

Per reviews I went with a half size smaller than usual (got a 7 W), however the left shoe was too tight for my new bunion. I have arthritis in my right big toe but that shoe was ok. I think the main problem is the loafer style with stitching near where the bunion is, as other shoes I have without stitching there do not cause pain. I went with a half size smaller and the back did not slip. I think maybe if these were leather they might have stretched but sadly they are manmade material (didn't catch that when ordered), but probably the stitching and seam would still have hurt. They did look nice: color, pattern, a bit shiny but I expected that.

Seemed like a good quality shoe but it did not feel wide enough for a 2E wide.

These shoes are extremely comfortable! I wore them traveling in Europe, when I work as a waitress, and for normal daily wear. They did, however, break down around the heel and stretch out. I contacted Zappos and they exchanged my favorite shoe for a smaller size, happily I may add. I am now a month in to wearing my second pair. The price is steep, but the comfort makes up for it!

I wear a size 12 medium. However, I ordered the 13 medium thinking they might run small. I wanted to get a nice, comfortable walking shoe. The bottom of the shoe is rather slick. I had seen from other reviewers that this was the case. But it did look like it might slip on wet surfaces. It made my feet look like very large. I don't like shoes that accentuate the size of my feet. These did that. if the shoe didn't look so masculine and the bottoms weren't slippery looking, I would try the actual 12s to see if they fit. But I just didn't like how these looked on my feet.

I purchased these for a trip to Europe and have been wearing them to break them in. So far, they are comfortable (I walked 4 miles the first time I wore them with no problems). I lowered the number of stars for style because they are just plain black shoes, nothing eye catching or different. They are better than black athletic shoes and go well with dress pants as well as more casual outfits. I will re-review upon return from Europe. Right now I would recommend them, they stay tied, have moderate support, and clean up well when the get wet.

Love at first fit so I bought a black and brown pair. Look sharp with slacks & nice height heel. Can't believe how wonderfully comfortable these are!

The arch support in the right foot shoe was not aligned correctly, and the right foot upper lining on the inside of the heel was pulled away and caused friction on my heel.

These shoes are so comfortable but the black in the foot bed rubs off on the bottoms of my my feet and toes. In just a short time my feet were solid black. I am returning them.

This is a beautiful shoe, but I felt like Cinderella's stepsister - I could not make my foot fit into the shoe. I'm a true size 7 and never before had a problem like this. Unfortunately, they will have to go back.

These are great shoes. They are the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn for work. I walk on hard marble floors all day long. These shoes make me feel like I'm walking on air.

I bought these for a trip to Ireland. I own the Clarks wave.cruise in 3 colors, but they have mesh inserts and my foot tends to pronate inward in them. These are perfect. They provide excellent arch support and stability, and are so much cuter than wearing athletic style walking shoes. The buffed leather also hides dust well. I walked miles daily, and my feet were the happiest they've ever been in a shoe. I did have to size up by one half size. I would love to buy another pair in a different color...brown or metallic bronze.

I don't normally pay this much for shoes, but they sounded like they were what I was looking for, and I was not disappointed. They are worth the price -- true to size, and need no "breaking in." Very comfortable to wear all day!

I find this shoe very comfortable and supportive and am buying more. I have a number of ligament and tendon problems in my foot and ankle due to an injury and have had difficulty finding a comfortable shoe to wear other than an athletic shoe. My foot does not hurt in this shoe, and I can walk for long periods of time wearing them. The shoe is quite stylish and more feminine than most Mary Jane type shoes because of the detail work in the leather and nice contrast between the nubuck and the leather. The cut of the shoe is also flattering to larger feet.

I like these shoes but they run large. I ended up with a 6 1/2 w and I usually wear a 7 1/2 or 8 depending if it is a wide or a regular. The heel does slip a little, but I put in heel pads.

Love this shoe! It's very comfortable and doesn't look like an athletic shoe. I wear them to walk to work and don't feel like I need to change to something else once there.

I have a pronounced bunion on my right foot. The adjustable straps in this shoe allow for that. I found this shoe extremely comfortable. I wear sandals all day long and my feet still felt good at the end of the day.

These shoes were pretty tight and I am true to size. But using shoe stretchers did the trick. They are stylish for work with a nice comfortable heel height.

This shoe is amazing! I feel like I am wearing a tennis shoe. I have so many foot issues. Plenty of padding on bottom, great arch and heel support!

I was able to wear these, which is a plus for my extremely wide feet (I have a hard time finding women's shoes that fit). In fact, they felt like they had a bit more room than I had expect, though probably not a whole size difference. They probably would have been perfect with thicker socks. They definitely have slick soles, and a kind of clunky feel to them. I ended up returning them because one of the rivets fell off within a few wearings. They are definitely not worth this price. It is rare that I would pay that much for shoes, but I like New Balance and hoped that these would last a long time, like Munros do (another brand I like). I am glad for Zappos' return policy - it is definitely the best place to shop for shoes.

Although not the most stylish, this shoe has great arch support and fit my narrow feet well. They were brand new when I wore them in Europe and they were extremely comfortable. One curious thing - the design on the top of the black shoe was brown in the 8N but was black in the 8 1/2 N.
