    Evelyne asked: I am looking for the new balance walking shoe with a deeper foot rise in a regular size. Do you carry these?

    • Barbara: "I really don't know what you are referring to as the "rise" but I have virtually flat feet and find that the instep is not uncomfortable. Shoes that are designed with arch support hurt my feet. I wear these shoes to work in and find that they support my feet very well. I would be inclined to buy them again."
    • Sandra: "I'm not sure what you mean by a deeper foot rise but I have found these are the only athletic shoe I can wear. I have fused ankles and these give me the most support of any athletic shoe I have tried. They have good arch support. It would be best if you could try them on to get the best fit."
    • Dorothy: "I think this is what you are looking for. I put my orthotics in htem and the also have a big toe box"

    Darlene asked: Since New Balance encourages selection of their shoes based on the shoe last (as well as the usual size and width), what is the shoe last designation for this shoe?

    • Gail: "Darlene is referring to the "shoe last," which is the form or model that is used to produce the shoe. This is part of what makes New Balance different than other brands. Knowing the shoe last of your New Balance (SL-2, for example) helps you select shoes made with similar toe box depth, heel width, etc. Famous Footwear doesn't include this info on their site and I'm not familiar with the last of this particular shoe. You can usually research this, however, on the NB website and use the info in selecting your shoes at Famous Footwear."
    • J: "I wear these shoes at work everyday, 5 days a week, on my feet all day. Usually, I will need to replace these shoes in about 4 months."
    • Doris: "I am unsure of your question, but I wear them for work. I work in a nuring home & they last about a year."
    • Joyce: "Hi! Bought these in August of 2012. The leather outer part of the shoe lasts and lasts, but I've found that the insole needs to be replaced after four to six months. Without doing that, they are no where near as comfortable. Hope this helps!"

    deb asked: what is the major difference between this & the New Balance 609? I have flat feet, & a bad back. Is one of these more orthopedic than the other? My doctor recommended NB, but this is my first purchase & not sure what to buy. thanks.

    • Dorothy: "I don't think that one is more orthopedic than the other. I've worn both and NB are the best sneaker for flat feet but now I went and added additional arch supports and they work even better!"
    • Marcia: "Get the NB 812, great for legs and back Pricy but worth it"
