Rated 5 out of 5 by So very comfortable from the moment I put them on :) I commute by train and needed a good pair of walking shoes because my feet were starting to give me problems. My doctor recommended these shoes so I ordered them. They are fabulous!!! My feet are feeling so much better. I'm back to being able to wear my high heels when I want to go out! :) August 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I chose these shoes because I am a diabetic and my orthotics technician recommended them. They really fit well. Since I am a diabetic, I have to wear special shoes. My orthotics technician recommended New Balance as a shoe that I could wear. After having foot surgery, it has been a challenge to wear shoes that fit good and feel good on my feet. These New Balance Walkers feel great and fit really good. The price was also great. I will definitely purchase New Balance shoes again. August 16, 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.

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: 
I don't think they have memory foam but I find them very soft inside compared to other sneakers I have had for walking. That is why I like them.

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.
