    • Tameaka: "Dimensions"
    • Carol: "Besides look I am not sure. I have a hard time finding shoes that fit right and these were a perfect fit. I have a wide foot and usually when I buy a new shoe I have to go through blisters, etc. to break them in. With these shoes I did not have that problem. I do a lot of walking and find them very comfortable for that and they have great support. Hope that helps."

    Kimberly asked: I can't read the size anymore on the New Balance 409's (women's) that I have but think they are wides. My foot does not seem to quite reach the "wide foot" area on your foot sizing chart. How can I tell if the ones I already have are wides so I can order the right size? Also, which of the women's 409s are more cushioned, the cross-trainer or the regular shoe?

    • J: "Think about what type of exercise or workout you are doing. I wear only the cross-trainer now because my workouts and walking/exercise varies so much and I need the extra stability of the cross-trainer. I always order the wide even though I fit the normal size after hearing a lady foot surgeon speak on footwear. She says to go one size up and wide to allow for natural daily expansion and cooling and flexibility of the entire foot. And to buy two pairs and rotate them every other day. I do and my feet and legs are very HAPPY :)"
    • A: "Hi Kim, I had bunions and 2 surgury's done on both feet. I always get the wide in WX 409WL New Balance brands as I have found them to be a little tight if I go with the regular or smaller size. This was even after my operations. Go with wide, and I hope it works....... Yes, I still wear my shoes I bought & also bought another pair at another store (which they will not let me name), later as I need a good pair & running around icky shoes lol Hope this helps"
    • Karen: "try taking the insole out- I think the sizes written underneath that."

    C asked: Are these made in the USA?

    • A: "No, I am sorry they are not. According to the tag on the tounge of the shoe they are made in Indionesia. But I do have to say after all the New Balance styles I have bought, these are the best so far for walking & every day wear. I do LOVE them. Thanks"
    • Jana: "The tongue says Indonesia"
    • D: "Nope. Indonesia."

    Karen asked: Is the toe box on this shoe wide or narrow? Does it give enough room for the toes without cramping them?

    • Carolyn: "I felt there was ample room for my toes. I was completely comfortable."
    • Nancy: "I would say average width. I found them to be comfortable shoes."
    • S: "I generally only buy NewBalance tennis shoes...however lately I have been having issues with the toe box. I thought it was just me. I bought these shoes, wore them around the house to see if they would rub the side of my foot as the last three pairs did and then took them back because I was worried that they felt like they would. NOW, my sister has a pair of this same shoe and she loves them. I am an 11N/M and she is a 9W"
    • T: "I bought the wide width because I have wider feet and I had no issues with my toes cramping. They are very comfortable. I worked 8 hr shifts M-F and they kept up with that."
    • Theresa: "Hi Karen. I buy the wide sneaker and have plenty of room for my toes to wiggle around. That is one of the reasons that I buy this sneaker is because my feet do not cramp up in them. Everybody is different but I am very happy with this sneaker and have only been buying and wearing them for the past couple of years. Hope this helps!!!"
    • Janis: "Yes, the toe box is wide."
    • D: "Yes, I bought a wide shoe and do have long toes. These are very comfy! I have been buying New Balance shoes for years and years - only sneaker I will put on my feet."
    • BRENDA: "These shoes are very comfortable. The toe area is wide. I have a very hard time finding wide shoes. These were perfect."
    • rose: "yes cramp my toes"

    Annette asked: removable insole?

    • Mary: "I don't know. I haven't needed to remove it. Quite comfortable as is."
    • Kathleen K: "Yes, there is a removable insole. In fact, my foot doctor has fitted one especially for me and this shoe."
    • Peggy: "Yes they do have removable insoles. "
    • Jill: "Yes, it is."
    • Janis: "Yes"
