    Shoe is solid and offers protection to weather. Good walking shoe. I needed more arch support, so I purchase a pad for additional support, I walk every day and love the shoe. I will purchase another.

    Great Shoes for Custom Orthotics

    Comments about New Balance Women's WX608v3 Oxford:

    Several doctors and my orthotist advised me to wear New Balance tennis shoes with my custom-made orthotics daily, at all times. This is due to the complexity of my diagnosed chronic foot problems, and the potential for those issues to worsen.

    Best Uses

      Comments about New Balance Women's WX608v3 Oxford:

      I bought these to wear at work, a very busy hospital OR. I previously wore NB554's (3 consecutive pairs!) which I just loved from the very first wearing. Apparently that model has been discontinued, so I chose the NB608's as a replacement. They're not nearly as comfortable or shock absorbing as the 554's and feel cheaper and stiffer than past New Balance shoes. Not sure if New Balance quality has changed or I simply made a poor choice. Would not recommend this shoe.

      The tennies are very cute and comfortable. My only complaint is that the pad/cushion is too thick and I had to replace it with a less aggressive cushion
