The New Balance 840v4 gives you a bed of premium cushioning for a consistent ride, day in and day out.
New Balance used a full-length EVA foam midsole for a soft landing and tacked on a blown-rubber outsole for reliable traction and a smooth ride. A breathable mesh upper keeps your feet cool on warm days, and a classic lacing system gives you a lockdown fit.
The premium materials and accommodating fit make the New Balance 840v4 an instant classic.

Not stiff enough
I have hallux rigidus in my right toe. Podiatrist says I need a stiff walking shoe. At first after trying on 8 pairs at my local Fleet Feet, I settled on a HOKA. After a few days, I realized it was not stiff enough to stabilize that toe. Thanks to their great return/exchange policy I was able to try a different shoe. Again after trying on 6 shoes, I settled this time on the New Balance 840. I've been using it for a week and the toe is still not stiff enough to stabilize my toe. After about 1.5 miles of brisk walking, it aches. I don't feel comfortable returning a second pair, so I will just stay with it until they wear out. I'm sure it's a great running shoe; it just doesn't do what I need for it to do. As far as sizing, I'm normally a 9.5 regular/medium (once in awhile I need a 10). The 9.5 was a bit short, so I purchased a 10 and it fit great.
First time customer
Excellent service, product & experience.
Buying without trying on
Normally would never do that but since you had the exact brand.style. model . Size etc as my previous shoes I thought I'd buy...worked out well .
On my third pair of this exact shoe. I hope New Balance never discontinues it. I'm on my feet on concrete a lot for work and these are incredibly comfortable for that. Great for walking and running, too.
