New Balance Athletic Shoes Run Shorter Than Other Athletic Shoes!

First Time Customers:

We recommend ordering 1/2 size larger than your size for other athletic or dress/casual shoes. If our fitting recommendation says order your regular New Balance size, order 1/2 size larger than the size you've worn in other shoes.

If our recommendation says the style runs short and to order 1/2 size larger than your regular New Balance size, a first time customer should order 1 full size larger than the size they have worn in other types of shoes.

If you have any questions on fit or size, please call our Fitting Consultants at 800-728-6247 or email us at to help you get the right fit the first time.

We offer fit recommendations on most of our styles to help you determine your correct size. These recommendations are based on feedback we have received from Fitting Specialists at our New Balance retail stores. The information below will provide you with additional fitting, foot conditions, etc.
