New Balance® 608V3 Cross Trainer Shoes for Men
The first thing I noted when I unpacked the shoe is that the eyelets are a fabric loop. I was not impressed, until I checked them and they are a nylon material and sewn in well. The interior material of the shoe is like most of the New Balance shoes I've owned. When I slid my hand accross the bottom I could feel the arch was higher than I was used to. I slid them on tightened the laces figuring I would wear them a couple of hour a day until they were broken in. I took them off twelve hours later. I really liked the fit and how comfortable they are. They exceed what I expected, and assured me that New Balance continues to make a great shoe.

The shoes were exactly as I had ordered except they were not the wide size. When I questioned that, I WAS TOLD THAT THE WIDE ONES DID NOT COME IN MY SIZE. i WOULD HAVE TO TAKE A HALF SIZE LARGER OR SELECT A DIFFERENT SHOE. I had already waited 3 weeks on backorder for these and decided to try to stretch them to fit. It would help me if you would carry the wide sizes in a smaller size for us that have small feet. I wear a size 8 1/2. This must be a pretty popular style since it was out of stock so long and for those of us with diabetes it is important to have shoes that do not pinch our feet. Thanks

I am partial to New Balance shoes and when I caught this one on sale for $39.00 I couldn't pass it up. It fits great and looks great too!

Bought these to work around the yard and cut the grass. They are comfortable and true to size however after wearing them a few times the soles started to separate on BOTH shoes. They started by the heel and progressed over the entire bottom. These are NOT up to the normal quality standards expected of New Balance. I am very disappointed.
