    • Natalie (staff): "Hi Joseph, New Balance does still make sneakers in the 2E width. We currently offer several New Balance sneaker styles in a 2E. If you select Men's New Balance, you can select Wide width and you should be able to see all shoes offered in a wide width. I hope this helps. Thank you, Natalie FamousFootwear.com"

    Gene asked: Can someone explain the difference between the New Balance WX 609 WB; the 609 V2X and 609 V2Y?

    • jeffrey: "I figured out that the last three digits have to do with the shoe width: V2X is a medium width V2Y is a wide width V2Z is an extra wide width Hope this helps!"
    • D: "Best I can figure out, these are idenfications for the same basic shoe in women's, men's and extra wide. New Balance numbers confuse me!"
    • Alice: "My husband wears these New Balance shoes all the time because they are one of the few affordable shoes in size 16. I have never found any great difference in the styles. It mostly has to do with the about the design of the shoes...like how much white vs. blue or where it is on the shoe. They are all basically a cross trainer/walking shoe..not exactly what you want if you are looking for a running/training shoe."
    • L: "I. Don't know the differencem"
