Rated 5 out of 5 by slee Back for more!
I think the pairs I just ordered are numbers 5 and 6, 1 white, 1 black. I love these shoes - their support, their endurance, their different widths, the fact they're assembled in the USA.
One little thing - why is the hook/loop strap closure available only for men? You used to have them for women (the pair I'm wearing right now!) but don't anymore. Women get arthritis in their hands too, you know, and that strap closure is lovely!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GDBBK Great walking shoe and a good value
These shoes are very comfortable after the initial breaking in period and I have found them to be lighter than similar NB styles that I have purchased in the past. And the price is right too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanLoverForYrs They're getting smaller
I have been wearing these walking shoes for years. I like the spacious toe box. But this pair seemed a little tighter than previous pairs of the same size.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Molloy Not what I expected
I wear New Balance and needed a new pair of walking shoes so was eagerly awaiting the delivery. They were a bit stiff but figured they would break in. They were roomy throught the toes and that's what I wanted. But I could not break them in and then I noticed one of the tongues was longer than the other and the shoe with the short tongue was rubbing my ankle. Therefore I am sending them back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by frequentshopperofllbean comfortable and very good fit
this is the fourth or fifth pair of new balance 577 walking shoes.
I have a black pair for work, on my feet all day and my feet never bother me. I have a white pair for everyday walking. They are the best. I hope I will always be able to buy these shoes. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyCAshopper Very good walking shoe.
New balance has always been a good walking shoe for me. I have an issue with my foot caused by tendinitis and this brand seems to be the only one with good support. Price was good also.
I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CranberryIslandFarm Perfect
Bought these in my exact size (8 1/2 Wide) and they fit perfectly. Excellent for my senior exercise class and mall walking. Secure, comfortable, great fit. Please don't change anything about these - I love it when I can reliably reorder a favorite item.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NurseMaggie Not comfortable
I got these sneakers for my teen daughter who works part-time at a fast food restaurant. The shoes needed to have leather tops and non-slip bottoms. So many sneakers now have a mesh top that I was glad to find these. She never was able to wear them as the base of the tongue (where it is sewn to the top of the shoe) is so thick that it was immediately very uncomfortable. We have since returned them (and I treated myself to a wind-proof coat instead).

Rated 5 out of 5 by bjloveschicago Be sure to order up
Love these shoes for their comfort and sturdiness! LLBean recommends ordering a half size up, but I tried my usual size, a 10, since they didn't have a 10 1/2, Toes hit the front, so exchanged for the 11 and they are perfect. Will buy again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LongTimeCustomer09 Ordered for my daughter a freshman Nursing student
I am so happy Llbean carried these made in USA New Balance all white sneakers in Narrow for my hard to fit daughter's foot. My 18 year old freshman is a Nursing student and required to wear an all white leather shoe or sneaker for clinical settings beginning her first year of college pursuing a BSN degree. We struck out with the typical nursing shoes as they swam on her narrow foot and her heel slipped. I ordered these a half size up in Narrow. She has a super narrow heel and it slipped slightly but the sneakers will work and I am sure will mold a bit to her foot when worn. The only reason I rated 4 stars is they haven't been worn yet, just bought and tried on. Please continue carrying these in Narrow! She and I are so relieved that she will have the proper attire now after much searching. Thank you Llbean.
