Rated 5 out of 5 by AGES love these shoes
I bought a pair of these out of frustration at the limited selection of women's walking shoes in wide widths. They are the most comfortable everyday shoes I have worn in years (perhaps ever!). The fit is great (I ordered a men's 7 for my size 8 feet), and the Velcro straps are especially convenient at airports.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NickNYC Not exactly the same.
This is the second time I am buying the same model of shoes. First time was about five years ago and I have to replace due to heavy use. Very comfortable shoes that can take abuse. However, there are stylistic changes in the current model which I am not sure they improve the appearance of these shoes. Also, I'm a bit unsure about the straps in the new model as they appear to be shorter. I will give the new pair a try and see if it can match its predecessor ...

by Anchoragite Comfortable but not well made
I have bought five pairs of these shoes simply because they are one of the few walking shoes available in 13 EEEE. The shoes are comfortable. However, the two oldest pairs have had separation of the front side of both feet indicating that they are poorly stiched at these points. The major difficulty besides the aesthetics is that water soaks the toe regions if you walk in the rain. Even the newest pair that I bought in the last couple of months seems to have the same stitching.

my husband has edema in his feet and these are wonderful so I ordered a second pair for slippers at night since there are no slippers that stay on his feet. Bopsie

For an old guy, I needed a walking shoe that would be comfortable and "sure footed." This shoe did more than that for me. I was a bit skeptical about "hook and loop," but now, much prefer these to laces. Also, the non-skid soles are relatively smooth and don't track in all the mud and stones from the trail. Ordering wide width gave me extra comfort and allowed for heavier socks. All day comfort makes this old guy very happy.

These are wonderful shoes, very comfortable and fit well. It is wonderful to be able to use the velcro to open & close the shoe. Much faster than dealing with laces. New Balance makes wonderful shoes and LL Bean is a great place to purchase them.

I have been a New balance shoe fan for many years and this purchase did not disappoint. I was looking for a pair of walking shoes with hook and loop closure instead of laces. These shoes are easy to put on and take off and are very, very, very comfortable. The size is accurate too. I wear size 12, ordered a size 12, and the fit is perfect.

My husband has Parkinsons, he is, at age 67 very mobile but likes the ease of putting this shoe on. He also likes the way the sole is, he doesn't track so much dirt in the house! It wears well. This is his 3rd pair since he wears them all the time.

These were a gift for my brother. He called when they arrived to say how good they felt. He's not known for complimenting anything so I know they must be really great. I ordered online while talking with him on the phone about what he needed. We followed LL Bean's fit recommendation and ordered a half size larger than usual. A few days after wearing them, my brother repeated the compliment. These must be good!

:Most of my shoes have been purchased at LL Beans but this time they were stiff, sole poorly shaped and too small. Of course I still have to purchase a winter shoe so I may try again. WW
