Awesome shoes/order half size up!

I love these. They are so comfortable. However hopefully these do run slightly smaller. I’ve seen some comments saying to order the size you would normally wear but I am a size 7.5 in Nike and ASICS shoes. I’ve NEVER had to size up. So… These are a bit snug and next time I will order an 8. I don’t like the feeling of my toes too close to the edge. But I would definitely recommend these shoes. I love the way they look and feel.

Lacks support for extended wear

I like the look and feel of these shoes but definitely do not feel they are appropriate for extended wear. The sole is thin and you can feel every rock you happen to walk on when outside. I would never wear these shoes for extended wear like for Disneyland or while traveling. Barely any arch support and lacks the firm support needed for day long walking.I had hoped to take these to Europe due to them being so light weight. After wearing them for a day around town though I know they won’t give me the support I need for extended sight seeing.THINGS I LIKE:1: light weight, no socks needed!2: roomy toe box, no pinching3: easy on and offWHAT I DO NOT LIKE1: no arch support2: no overall support (if you are prone to twisting your ankle this shoe will do nothing to protect you)3: shoe runs small, order half a size up4: thin sole that almost has a slipper feelEDIT: after wearing them a little longer I noticed they give me lower back pain when wearing them for walking around town for 1-2 hours. The lack of structural/arch support made me decide to downgrade my rating to 2-3 stars.

Worst work shoes I’ve ever purchased

I work as an RN in a very busy ICU and usually wear athletic shoes in favor of crocs or clogs. I often work 4-5 days in a row between two jobs and am on my feet a lot, needless to say. My last pair of shoes were new balance and they lasted almost a year and were very supportive. I’ve worn this pair of shoes three times and I am already shopping for a new pair. If you’re looking for shoes with good support that will allow you to be on your feet either standing or walking for hours at a time, these shoes are not for you. If you want something light weight and flexible on days where you’re not going to be too active, I guess they’d be alright. For me, they were a nightmare and my feet are in horrible pain. I’m not sure how other reviewers said they could wear these comfortably with plantar fasciitis because I’m pretty sure they’ve caused me to have plantar fasciitis.

Stylish, appropriate for light use.

I ordered an 8&1/2 D. The width is perfect if I wear extremely thin socks, but I’m having trouble with the sewn in tongue. It barely leave enough room for the height of my foot. I suppose if it were looser then the shoe would slip around, but I have to wear a very thin sock. My toes have about 1/2 inch left at the end of the shoe and the widest part of the shoe is hitting at the widest part of my foot, so it appears I have the correct size. I am able to wear my plantar fasciitis inserts, but not my plantar fasciitis bands with this shoes. They are NOT like walking on air, although they have a nice feel. They are super light weight and stylish – very cute! I’ll keep them because they will be great for work. I’m a teacher. I would not consider these appropriate for aerobics, hiking, or walking for more than 6 hours. You simply do not have the support in your arch or the side of your shoe. They are very cute! Edit: after time these have become my favorite work shoe. I ripped out the foot insert and put in power step inserts. Fabulous!

Super comfy & great fit

I decided to write a review bc I felt that previous reviews by others were confusing!First, I love these shoes! They are exactly what I expected- given the size I chose- and they exceed my expectations in arch support and comfort.I already knew that I wore a Euro 36- so I ordered according to that- which fit perfectly! However, I will say, that when I say they fit perfectly, my toe is very close to the tip of the shoe, but I prefer my shoes that way.If you prefer more space, order 1/2 size up.Arch support was a complaint I read several times when deciding whether or not I was going to purchase. To me, support and comfort are not an issue. They are very comfy, but do not offer the same thickness of comfort that you would find in Adidas or Brooks— those are a different animal— but if you’re looking for a light, weight comfortable shoe for everyday tasks, get these!

I’m ordering more, in different colors

I ordered these shoes because we are quarantined to the house due to Covid-19 and I needed walking shoes so I could at the very least walk my newborn around the block. I was very hesitant as some of the photos made the toes look so wide. I thought it looked funny but decided to bite the bullet and at the very least try them. These shoes are AMAZING. I have narrow feet with higher arches, and these shoes while they did fit a little snug the first few times fit perfectly now. They are extremely light weight. I really enjoy that there isn’t a tongue on these so I can just skip them on without having to dig the tongue out. They have so much support it makes my feet feel better just wearing them. They are also very airy so that’s nice for warm days… Not so much rain weather. As you can literally see outside lolI have vinyl flooring in my home, and I always wear new shoes in my house first before I take them outside to see if I’m going to like them and these shoes almost made me fall several times as they become slippery when the floor is wet. And the material they are made out of looks like it’s going to snag if it touches something like a stick… Or velcrow.All in all I’m going to be ordering more in different colors because I really like these shoes. :)Edit June 3rd 2021:These shoes no longer slip when on wet surfaces and they are still comfortable! They are easily my favorite shoes

New Balance Women’s FuelCore Nergize V1 Sneaker – FAQ

Are these shoes good for walking?

Yes! My husband and I went on vacation in Charleston, SC, and we ended up walking over 5 miles. I have high arches and I was also 8 months pregnant, these shoes were AMAZING! I bought them specifically for walking while I was pregnant. I have since bought 2 more pairs (one pair a year) cause I’ve worn them out. And I’m getting ready to get my 4th pair. I refuse to wear any other sneaker.

Are this shoes good for standing all day?

I wear these shoes all day as I work in retail management and am on my feet all day and they’re the only ones that I will use. I don’t get blisters on my heels ever and my feet aren’t in pain at the end of the day.

Do the black/magnet shoes have laces to tie? Or are they stretchy and tou just slip them on? I cant tell from the pictures

The shoes I bought for my dtr 14 yr old. Yes it has laces & she loves them. Shoes are well MADED & confortable. I recommend them.

Sirven para trabajar en cocina de restaurante?

No, las scketers antideslizantes si (no slip) las new balance son para caminar y andar normal en el dia no para trabajo resbalan bastante

Hola, soy de Ecuador calzó 37 ¿qué talla debería de comprar de este calzado?

Siempre es recomendable comprar una talla más en este tipo de calzado.

Are these ideal for taking 2 to 4 mile walks? I also have over pronation.

No, I have had mine about 2 months and a thin layer on the sole is peeling off. They are cute…but not well made. 🙁

Are these zero-drop soles?

No, but comes with a memory foam insert for the sole.

Can you step into these without having to bend over to put on? Like for a pregnant person

I don’t think so because you have to pull up the heal part
