"They are horrible, too heavy, made of cheap products. NB 812 are better than 813 not recommended."

"The 813 quality is not as good as the old 812s. The tongue is poor quality and not as substantial as the 812. Not sure I would recommend the 813."

"These are great! I have a very bad back and these are so easy to get on and off. I stand most of the day on my job and these are very comfortable. I have a wide foot and these fit great right out of the box. Super fast shipping."

"Fit and comfort are good. Wish they offered it in the brown family; brown,sand,etc. Also don't like the need to cut off any excess hook length (which is on a very tiny tag on the flap"

"Heel a bit wide, but rest of shoe is great. Slips on much easier than the other NB sports shoes that I have. The 2E fits much better than just the D for my size 14 feet. Wish they made golf shoes that fit so well."

"The shoe was way to large to the point I walked out of them. Does not fit the way NB shoes made in the USA do. Will stay to the USA made."

"I was very happy to be able to get a shoe that was wide enough and fits perfectly. It is a bit scary to order online, but it fit the foot right."

"I haven't had these shoes a year and they appear to be disintegrating just above the sole. The sole is peeling off."

"I have tried other brands, but I always end up buying New Balance. I am on my feet a lot when working, and these fit the bill perfectly. Very comfortable and great fit ( 13 x 6E )."

"I purchased these for my husband, who is handicapped, and at first he loved them, after about 3 days he was complaining that they were too loose and he felt insecure while wearing them. When I looked more closely, the strap is attached with a piece of elastic and it was very stretched out, when I tightened the Velcro strap it extended well past the contact point and it caught on his walker, even though I had trimmed it to the shortest length indicated. He really liked being able to get his shoes off himself and I'm sorry they didn't work out for him, possibly there will be a design modification in the future and we'll try them again."

"Same shoe as my brown laced 813s except for the Velcro and the color. I bought the gray because white gets dirty looking so quickly and is hard to keep looking new. The gray was a compromise, but the color is growing on me and I'm getting used to the "old man" looks of the Velcro. I must say that the Velcro is more convenient than laces; you can quickly adjust the fit without the fuss of evening up laces. Because of my weight and bad knees, I only buy NB models that feature Rollbar. The lateral support is much better than other brands, and they don't break down as quickly as other shoes I've owned."

"I wear a size 13 4E and could not find this size and style in local stores. So I immediately went to the New Balance website. I immediately found what I desired in size, style, and color. I accidentally double ordered my purchase. Customer Service assisted me in a most professional and gracious manner. I received my purchase in a very timely manner. I left on an extended vacation shortly after receiving my purchase. I drove approximately 5,000 miles, walked many miles, and climbed almost that many stairs. I have had several surgeries on my feet. I had no problems while wearing my New Balance athletic shoes. I will be purchasing my next pair directly from this website--- forget the local stores."

"Expandable stretchy anchor loop for the straps is so stretchy as to be useless. Straps over shoot and stick out, ruining looks. Shoe construction and fit are good, New Balance quality."

"Without a doubt, the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn. As an older person I appreciate the ease of wearing. They also look better than my old 'lace' shoes."

Cindy Ford - rlntlys
"Been using these shoes for my son since they were 811.. Like the construction and support.also the fact that they are universally white with no other added color accents...really prefer the original soles with the light blue strip down the center but I suppose the new design is intended to be better!"

"The new 813 has the loop outside the shoe. Great change. But the hook is a little long for the top of my feet. It sticks out."

Alan Mcfadden - Philadelphia,TN
"I had a problem with the last pair I purchased when the sole separated from the bottom of the shoe on both shoes. I had never had that problem before. I am hoping that the most resent pair I purchased performs better."

Tony Munos - Leesburg, VA, USA
"I bought these because I have other New Balance shoes. I had a stroke and need the loop & hock because I lost the use of my right hand. And they stabilize my feet when I walk! A really good shoe!"

"I hardly, if ever, write reviews. I like these shoes so much that I made an exception."

Louis Woods - Newport News, VA, USA
"Shoes are comfortable. However, the straps could be about 1/2 shorter as they tend to snag pants leg at the bottom and it looks geeky."

"The shoe does not fit very well since the Varco trips are way too long and almost hit the ground. In addition, the tong is too narrow so that when you get you foot in it the tong is above the body of the sneaker. The result of these issues the shoe does not fit well and is uncomfortable when I walk on my walker. I will probably throw them away and try another brand."

Chester Keller - Chandler, AZ, USA
"I have Parkinson's Disease, and I bought these shoes because of their ease of latching without trying to tie laces. The shoes were indeed easy to latch and I have had them for about four weeks, but the front soles of both shoes have separated rendering them useless to wear. Having these shoes come apart after wearing them for less than a month are the reason I have rated this product as poor."
