Rated 1 out of 5 by too short, not true to nb size I wear nb walking shoes and these run short. need to order up, I guess July 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Walking Shoes I like my shoes, they are stylish and comfortable at the same time. July 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite pair of shoes for at work. I work in a hospital so am walking a lot and New Balance is always my "go to" shoe. They are supportive, look good and are comfortable to be in all day. I was so glad to find this style on line as I had just worn out the pair I had been wearing for the last 2 years. Price was right too. Picking up at the store for free was a plus also. July 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great comfort; no more burning shoulders after a long walk! Great product for the price. Did research and this product was highly rated for a great walking shoe. Feels like walking on a pillow! July 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by work shoes I stand 8-9 hrs a day. these are great comfy shoes. Long wearing. Easy cleanup. I have used these as work shoes for 6 years. I get a new pair twice a year. I do not have time to go into the store. I shop online and have things shipped home. It was a very distressing to take these in to have the security tag removed before I could wear my new work shoes. It is exactly what I want to do after work in rush hour traffic.. June 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great fit, great price, love how they look LOVE them! I have problems with getting shoes that fit, and these are just the thing that my feet need! July 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome shoe perfect fit, can't always find my size in the store, these were perfect July 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable fit and style The fit great! Picky about shoes as i have had foot surgery and need to be careful about what i wear. These are great! July 5, 2016

Answer: 
Yes, I owned a previous pair and I washed them in the washer and dried them in the dryer. They may have shrunk a tiny bit, but not enough to be a problem with size. I even added bleach to the wash water.

Answer: 
I always wash my athletic shoes in the washer, and then air dry, either outside in the sun or just hanging by laces. Too noisy in the dryer.

Answer: 
I would say these shoes could be machine washed in cold water, gentle cycle.
But I definitely would not put them in the dryer.
Air dry only.

Answer: 
I ordered these in each color and all ran a size small. I would not recommend washing these in a washer or placing in a dryer if you plan to use them for exercising or running. I don't think they would hold up well through a wash. The manufacture says to clean them by using a light bristle brush (old tooth brush) and a light detergent (dish washing or laundry). Scrub the shoes with the brush and use a damp cloth to wipe clean. You can also immerse them in water. Allow shoes to air dry thoroughly for about twenty-four hours.

Answer: 
Yes they can be removed but I don't think I would personally. The insole that is there is so comfortable. These sneakers are a great buy for sure

Answer: 
Yes, the insole is not glued down, stays put by pressure. I wear an orthotic in one shoe and the insole is so thin I just lay it on top and remove to use in other shoes. Love New Balance shoes, bought a new pair last month and didn't even have to break them in before 2 weeks of vacation walking!

Reviews say two different things so not sure which his correct. One reports inside of shoes are very hard and others say soft. Does this shoe have memory foam or any type of cushioning? Thank you!

Answer: 
it has a thin cushion, however, I took the insole out because I have a horrible heal spur and need to use orthotics. However, I will tell you that these are the most comfortable sneakers I have worn in a long time.
