steele asked: is this shoe good for cross training... jumping up and down short sprints, walking?
- Susan: "I bought this shoe more for the stability aspect. My daughter runs, and I don't think you'd like them for running. Walking, yes . I hope this helps."
- P: "Yes, I have it in pink/white and actually thinking about getting another pair in a diffrent color. It is very well padded and the most comfortable tennis shoe I have personaly have owned. I have a very narrow foot and it fits perfect."
- Sandra: "My foot doctor told me get these shoes as they were good for all around activities. I do Zumba and walking in them. Hope that helps."
- Richard: "Purchased for my daughter and she wears them for working on her feet 8-10hours at a time and loves them . Excellent support and comfort on the days she wears them. So I would have to think the answer would be yes. Walking for sure constant movement plus bending . So I would have to say she would give them TOP rating. (short sprints she does not do) but everything else is for sure. (She has blue ones and black ones for work)."
- Janet: "I bought a pair, and loved them. I run a horse rescue, & I am on my feet a lot. I have also had two surgeries on each foot. I put insoles in them, and they were very comfortable, and lasted almost 2 years. I would recommend them to anyone on their feet for hours a day."
- Ken: "I would not recommend this shoe for those purposes. I would like to return them but wore them outdoors 1 time. First pair of NB that hurt my feet."
- Naomi: "Yes but these run narrow"

- Janet: "I ordered a pair of the New Balance shoes like the ones pictured here. I had two surgeries on both of my feet. I loved the shoes. They were very cushioned, and comfortable for me to were, being on my feet as a horse trainer. I was also very pleased with the fact they lasted me almost two years. I would very much recommend the shoes to anyone that is on their feet for long periods of time, or that has foot problems."

Sela asked: What does it mean Medicare eligible?
- Roseanne: "If you are on Medicare and have diabetes (or other types of foot problems that require stable foot wear) Medicare will cover 1 pair of Medicare-eligible shoes per year for you. These shoes would qualify as such."
- debra: "It probably means that if you're on Medicare you can get a partial refund on your shoes through Medicare. I am not so could not make use of that. I loved the comfort of the shoes though!"
