I waited about a month before writing this review to be certain of my feelings for this shoe. New Balance has not been the brand for me the last few years, but this shoe worked out. I was having a lot of trouble with orthotics working with shoes that were supposedly "made for orthotic users" and finally had a long talk with my physical therapist. I suffer from peroneal tendinopathy, which was caused by overly-aggressive orthotics that my then podiatrist had me wearing to heal plantar fasciitis (no, I do not over-pronate). They didn't heal my problem, only made it worse. Unfortunately, after over 2 years of trying to get out of orthotics I find that my right foot and my gait are basically destroyed. I got a new podiatrist and a new neutral orthotic and was informed by my PT to wear a cross-trainer with zero structure on the inside (in other words, no arch support built into the shoe and no outward tilt to the footbed). I was also told to buy them one width wider than I used to wear. These shoes took the orthotic, my foot stays level, no tilting to the outside and the 10mm drop is perfect for keeping the arch support of the orthotic from applying too much pressure to the sole of my foot. So my lesson is, if you are not a runner, by-pass the $120-$140 New Balance runners and buy the more basic cross-trainers instead. If you wear orthotics, these are great shoes.

Really nice memory foam insole! These shoes are comfy and cute, although the toe box is ALOT more narrow than I usually see with New Balance. Great heel support and stability with the wide sole. Comfortable for walking. The upper edge of the foot opening is a bit bulky feeling, I wear short socks and noticed it rubbing slightly on my skin. Still deciding if that will cause me to return. Also, the navy material is like suede and it get easily scuffed/dust marks.

I have been wearing the New Balance 608 for years. The 608v4 has changed. The padding inside is thinner and wears through in no time. The heels get stress marks and start to squish down. They are still more comfortable than any others I have found - especially the 608 with memory foam. I just have to replace them sooner.

I like this shoe very much. My orthotics fit well and the shoe provides much needed support to align my knees and hips. The color is very attractive. I wear New Balance routinely so I just ordered my usual size and it fit perfectly! I recommend this shoe if you want a colorful, up-to-date shoe that in addition to being fashionable is well-fitting, and substantial in terms of providing support. It's hard to find one shoe that combines both.
