  • 4 out of 5 I've been wearing this model for about 9 years. A specialty shoe store recommended it because I needed the extra depth for orthotics. I have diabetic neuropathy and these shoes have been comfortable from the start with little time adjusting to new pairs (I've had at least 5 pairs). The neuropathy affects my balance so they give me some extra stability. The narrow back really helps. I wear them year round as the navy color is dark enough to not be conspicuous like white in the winter. The only complaint I have is that a few pairs have been squeaky- not sure if it has been the orthotic or the shoe itself (I did return one pair). I just ordered another pair after looking to see if there was anything new in the SL2 last. These are still my best choice.

  • Most comfortable tennis shoes I have ever owned

  • 5 out of 5 These shoes are so light that sometimes I forget I have them on. They are so comfortable than I don't want to take them off. I have to walk a lot every day and I am not kidding when I said that any other pair of shoes make my feet sore after a few hours of use, but these shoes do the job to perfection. I highly recommend them.

  • Okay for now

  • 5 out of 5 Sneakers are ok, not the greatest pair I have ever bought. Thinking about exchanging them. The support and the ride is great, just bigger than expected.

About New Balance

New Balance collage Over a century ago, New Balance started manufacturing arch supports. Just 70 years later, it has become one of the foremost leaders in sports apparel and footwear. Even before branching out into shoes and athletic gear, it was dedicated to satisfying the needs of the everyday athlete. Known worldwide for its attention to fit, it provides shoes in an extensive range of widths and sizes. The company adheres to the belief that the better the fit, the better the performance. Maintaining five manufacturing facilities in the United States, New Balance continues to meet and exceed its time-tested quality standards.

Having the right fit is essential to performing your best, no matter what your activity. That's why New Balance offers the majority of their shoes in multiple widths, from narrow (2A) to extra-extra-wide (6E). New Balance is the only manufacturer to offer so many width options, ensuring you the best possible fit.

Women's Shoe Widths
4A 2A B D 2E 4E
X-Narrow Narrow Medium Wide X-Wide XX-Wide

Men's Shoe Widths
2A B D 2E 3E 4E 6E
X-Narrow Narrow Medium Wide Wide X-Wide XX-Wide

What size are you?

  • In general, the regular Men's width is "D"; for Women, the regular width is "B".If the majority of shoes you own, or have purchased in the past, fit adequately, these are the widths you should select.
  • If the shoes you own tend to feel overly spacious in width, you should consider selecting a narrower width size. If the shoes you own tend to feel noticeably narrow or snug, then you should consider selecting a wider width size.
  • If your feet seem "between" sizes and you cannot decide which size to select, we suggest you choose the larger size. You can make adjustments for a better fit with socks, insoles, or a different lacing pattern.
  • Since feet always swell during the day, we encourage you to try shoes on later in the day when your feet are at their largest.

Sizing Tips:

  • With respect to feel, your heel should fit snug with no slipping; the midfoot of the shoe under your arch and over the top of your foot should be snug but not tight; and you should have enough room in the toe box to wiggle your toes.
  • People are more than twice as likely to buy a shoe that is too small than too big. Clues that your shoes are too small or narrow include - foot cramping or "falling asleep" while running or just after running or the formation of blisters and calluses between or on your toes.
  • New Balance shoes are made to fit directly out of the box. They do not need to be broken in.
  • Feet typically get bigger with age. We encourage you to have your feet measured every year.
  • Women's feet often become a half-size (or more) larger after pregnancy.
  • Your left and right feet may differ in length or width as much as a full size. Be sure to measure and try shoes on both feet, and always buy shoes to fit your larger foot.

New Balance earned their position as the leader in Total Fitâ„¢ by offering more fit combinations than any other footwear company. In addition to shoe length and width, they use a shoe last. A shoe last is a 360 degree model of the foot used to create each shoe's heel width, instep height, toe box width and toe box depth. Though it's not the primary factor, in conjunction with length and width, the shoe last helps you achieve the best possible fit.
