My Review 

I have been using the New Balance 840 series. I started out several years ago with the 844, with the model 846 being the current design. I have had arthritus and nerve damage to my sciatic and this has been my ONLY shoe that I can wear ALL day long. All New Balance stores carry this model or you can buy through the Internet from LL Bean, Calbelas, Joes New Balance, etc. I can usually find them at a discount on the Internet. They are available in either a white with blue/black trim or all black. I have tried over 100 different shoes and this is the one for me!! Expect to pay over $100 but it is well worth the comfort with no pain.
