Pros

good cushioning at the heel, ideal for runners who are heel-strikers

1 agrees

allows a fair amount of toe movement, not overly snug

1 agrees

runs true to size, can reliably order your size and have it fit perfectly

1 agrees

plenty of arch support, keeps your feet very relaxed

1 agrees

unusually light even for a running shoe, can barely feel the weight at all

Cons

sole is tapered toward the toe, so you tilt forward a bit with every step - a little awkward for casual wear

1 agrees

not a lot of cushioning at the ball of the foot, can get pretty sore if walking around all day

1 agrees

comes with unusual laces that look at a glance like they're twisted, but can't ever look smooth or neat

The New Balance MR817 is a running shoe that is designed to provide stability and smooth transition for over-pronators.  The shoe features a synthetic/mesh upper which makes it comfortable and supportive and utilizes Rollbar with a medial TPU post for high stability.  It has Acteva midsole cushions that resist compression while the outsole is made of N-Durance rubber compound for strength and durability.  The shoe also has an anti-microbial Ortholite foam insert and a seamless phantom liner for a comfortable fit.  The MR817 includes Sure Lace as well as N-Lock external support system to keep the laces secure around the foot.  It includes a full-length Abzorb strobel board as well as Abzorb cushioning in the heel and forefoot for high shock absorption.   The shoe is available in a white/silver color and is also available in a women's model, the WR817.
