    • Karen: "Really? same as other tennis shoes I suppose."
    • Marla: "I have no idea of the exact weight, and no access to a scale at the moment, but they are pretty light. Heavier than the mostly mesh style of shoe of course, but not as heavy as typical leather dress shoes. Hope that helps."
    • robert: "medium weight: .5 to .75 lbs.. each."
    • Lois: "My pair size 6-1/2 weighs about 1 pound. This is a supportive padded type shoe which is great for walking."

    Debbie asked: I HAVE A VERY NARROW FOOT AND I WEAR A SIZE 6. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT WIDTH I SHOULD GET AND I NEED TO HAVE A VERY COMFORTABLE SNEAKER AS I AM ON MY FEET ALL OF THE TIME!!!!!! CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS QUESTION???????

    • P: "sorry I cannot help you with this - I wear a size 12 wide shoe."
    • Lisa: "Debbie, I have a normal width foot and like this shoe because it is slightly roomy so either order a narrow or avoid this shoe. Good luck, lisa"
    • Jana: "New Balance use to be my favorite sneaker but the last pair I bought didn't hold up well, ran small and seemed to have less support in the footbed. I have switched to Asics"
    • Corinne: "I too have narrow feet, and I wear this in a 6 1/2 in medium as it tends to run small and is snug across the toes."
    • Janice: "Without a doubt, you have to get a narrow width. I have a narrow foot and mistakenly got a wide width. It is way too wide in the toe. Hope this helps! "

    Nancy asked: Are these shoes good for aerobic workouts?

    • rhonda: "yes they are..I love these shoes. all I ever wear for work and workouts."
    • Marla: "Sorry Nancy, I wear them for casual wear, not aerobics. I have a narrow foot and NB are just about the only sneaker that fit well without my heel sloshing around in the shoe."
    • Angela: "I walk a lot and these shoes are comfortable and preform well for this. I don't participate in aerobics classes so I can not speak to that, but I would think the would work well."
    • Karen: "Yes, I do jazzercise in these shoes"
    • Patricia: "I don't wear this shoe for aerobic workouts. I weaar these shoes to work in as I am on my feet all day. They have excellent support and I usually replace them every 6 months. Hope this helps you!"
    • robert: "My wife uses them for walking. She walks 50 - 70 miles per week and they last from 3 to 5 months. She does not use them for aerobics."
    • Joni: "Yes, they give me the best support for all areas of exercise."

    Pat asked: New Balance Women's WX 609 V2W Med/Wide I'm look for shoes just like these, except I would like them in black. Do you have any sneakers, boots or walking shoes that give the comfort and support that these shoes do? I have problem feet. Thanks very much. Pat ONeil 19 Chapel St. Newport, RI 02840

    • Kandace B: "I have been buying these shoes for a long time because I really like the support. I need to wear black shoes to work but they don't come in black for women so I bought the men's black in corresponding size. Hope this helps!"
    • S: "Great pair of shoes. They are comfortable and provide great support. I hope this helps in your decision to purchase these shoes."
    • V: "Sorry, the 609 is the only one that fits me well. Unfortunately, this past pair came with the left shoe made slightly differently in design from the right shoe(Made in Indonesia). The pair before this(not from famous footwear) came with threads that were sewn through and across the inside of the toe area.(made in China). A shoemaker was able to snip out the strings and the shoes fit just fine."
    • S: "I have high arches as well as wide feet so need comfort but more important support. Here are some brands that you may find work in all types of shoes. I have used propenet which are extremly comfortable but okay support. Also I have found that the gravity defier shoes are great for comfort and support. Reeboks or Adidas are okay For regular non althetic that is more tricky but Easy Spirit and Naturalizer make wider and better supporting shoes I have found. Hope this works for you."

    Susan asked: Do these SQUEAK when you walk??

    • Eileen: "I did notice if I wear thin socks and my feet become warm / moist there is a squeak when walking, I tried a thicker sock and it seems to make a difference"
    • Diana: "No squeaking. I do think that they run alittle small,though. "
    • Carolyn: "no, they don't squeak."
    • Laura: "yes sometimes they squeak when i walk"
    • Elizabeth: "No, they have never squeeked for me."
    • Rosalind: "Not at all"
    • Carol: "They dont squeak for me. The only problem I had was I have always bought these shoes but this time they ran very narrow in the area for my toes."

    Diane asked: What last was used to make this shoe? I need to have a S2 shoe as this last ismuch straighter than others. My feet don't curve like most peoples and so I only buy New Balance shoes and only buy those built on a S2 last.

    • patricia: "I have 2 pairs of the wx 609 med /w and love the support they give . i have small wide feet and this shoe have given me plenty of room. wish they would make diff colors with more flare. i have feet problems and my podiatry dr told me new balance is the best shoe for problem feet. i am a nurse , thus on my feet all day and have had no problem with these shoes."
    • susan: "I am not sure I understand the question. What is an s2?"
    • Tamera: "Yuo will love this shoe.They are consistently comfortable.They do not let my foot roll with the wider sole"
    • Jana: "I can't tell you how they were made. I can say I have degenerative joint disease which make my feet real unstable. Bones go any way they want and the 609 feels pretty good. I can't wear any other and not even most other New Balance. My podiatrist suggests Asics too but have never tried them. Sorry not much help."
    • D: "Diane, I don't have the shoes in front of me right now but did find a list of NB shoes with a list of SL-2 on the New Balance website. I didn't see the WX 609 V2W on the list."

    Wendy asked: iS THERE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE 609 v2w AND THE 608V2?

    • J: "Have had both shoes. The 609's wore better and lasted longer for me. They also have arch support that, in my opinion, made them more comfortable."
    • Mary J: "I think there is. The v2w version doesn't fit my foot as well as the v2 one. I have very narrow feet and was concerned about this version. I did call customer service but they didn't have any feedback to offer. The upshot? They aren't the worst shoe ever, but I probably won't buy the v2w version again. Unfortunately, last I looked, the other version wasn't available. I hope that helps."
    • Tawna: "I'm not sure if there is a difference because I only bought these. I do know that I am very happy with the White/Navy ones. They are very sturdy and supportive but good looking for everyday wear."
    • Christy: "They hurt my feet when you really do some extensive walking."
