Poor Value

Barely different from their 500 series shoes, significantly worse in quality to comparably priced shoes of other brands. I would not buy another pair of New Balance shoes as the quality has dropped as well as value, and the sizing is no longer consistent

blisters after only two days

I bought the supposedly similar 811 model for many years. New Balance did away with the 811 model and stated many times that the 812 was a direct replacement. It is not. After only two 14 hours days of wearing a new pair of 812 shoes I had blisters on the tops of both pinky toes. I went back to an older 811 pair I happened to have. Problem solved, for now. I cannot wear the 812 and will not wear it in the future. Avoid the 812. It is N-O-T a direct replacement for the 811. Beware. Rest in peace 811. We asked for your return, but New Balance has ignored all our requests.

Good quality and well made materials

Use this pair of shoes for a work shoe. This shoe seems tight in front of shoe and it feels like the toes are bunched up and uncomfortable. Also the sole seems harder than my old 811 shoe. Really liked the old style 811 as I had several pairs and they seemed comfortable right out of the box. Hoping that wearing these 812 shoes for a while that they will become more comfortable.

walking shoes

I normally have been buying New Balance shoes. The last two pairs of shoes that I bought the soles cracked and split across. However, then I had these for about five years. So I think that is probably ok. I just bought NB 812. All the shoes I normally buy are all made in the USA.I say you buy foreign. There is a good chance that you will have problems. I give NB that is USA made a four star.

Reasonably priced men's narrow shoe

Not many 2A width shoes out there--this NB variation has been my staple for lots of years!
