I don't think these runners will last all that long, but for the price (on sale plus extra discount), they were a great deal. They're definitely on the lower end of New Balance's product line, but since I only run a few times a month and usually do low-impact cardio, these are perfect. As per comments, I ordered a 1/2 size up, and they fit.

These don't feel tight at all on me (other reviews say they run a little small), but it may be because I always wear thin socks when I run. If I wore thicker socks I think I would have needed half a size up. They are perfect for me!

I am a long distance runner and while these shoes are comfortable, they are too lightweight for the amount of running I do. Not a lot of support and I don't think they would last very long if you are a serious runner.

I got these shoes because my older New Balances caused me to have shin pain after running 2.5 miles per night. Now, I run 3.2 with these shoes and I feel great! I love how they are soft and somewhat flexible so that my feet can flex/move properly to absorb the shock from running correctly. Very good deal and very comfy.
