Rated 5 out of 5 by fivefootthree Great Purchase ....
These shoes are the greatest !! The fit was perfect the first day my husband wore them.... And most times he's quite difficult to fit, especially width-wise....

Rated 1 out of 5 by juanantonio new balance hook and loop closure
Leather has plastic feel and overall construction seems light and chintzy. Hook and loop could be larger and longer. Compared to my previous pair that lasted many years this seems so poorly constructed that I will never buy again.

Shoes are great, the straps could be a hair longer, I wear a brace which is why I need the wide shoes and it makes the fit tighter and I could use a little more length to close the loop. Otherwise, very pleased with the shoes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DeJudge Did not fit
I had to return the sneakers. It is very hard to buy shoes online without trying them on. I thought hook and loop would be ok but the hook and loop did not hold when used near the outside of the shoe.

My husband has been wearing the Nike 577 style for several years and plans to keep re-ordering this style for as long as Nike makes it. He is on his feet most of the day for his job, and is very happy that these sneakers keep him comfortable. He especially likes the ease of the hook closure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shoporama So far, so good
Only gave three stars 'cause not sure how they'll hold up yet. Bought these for my husband who has issues tying his shoes. He wanted to try the velcro sneakers to see if it was any easier than bending over to tie the shoes. These sneakers, or 'walking shoes' I guess they're called, look good and fit well. He got them in wide and the wide seemed to fit fine. At first I was concerned that the tabs that fasten on the velcro didn't pull far enough over on the velcro, if you know what I mean. Lots of velcro still exposed. But then he pulled the closure tighter and they fastened better, and he said it didn't hurt, so we'll see. My husband is very, very hard on his shoes so I want to see how well the velcro holds up for him; if it keeps the shoe closed and doesn't wear out too fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SueCM New Balance Walking Shoes
I bought these shoes for my husband about 5 years ago. Due to nearly constant use in all seasons, they finally wore out, so I am replacing them with the same New Balance shoe from LL Bean.
These shoes are EXCELLENT, especially for a person who has trouble leaning down to tie laces or keeping them tied. They are easy to fasten and work very well for walking, which my husband loves to do. They hold up in all weathers, even when wet .Best of all, they look attractive,even stylish, in black.
I appreciate being able to find these shoes at LLBean and not having to search the stores for them. Highly recommended walking shoes!
