Rated 5 out of 5 by Nanaforthree A favorite
My husband has tried other brands for walking shoes but always goes back to these. They are comfortable for all day wear and all activities. He has both the white and black and finds that sizing and comfort is consistent. He's a happy walker!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Walking2BFit Comfortable Walking & Everyday Shoe
Great U.S.A. built full leather walking shoe that is comfortable with a very short break-in time and no squeaks. Overall fit and arch support are perfect with 1/2 size larger than dress shoes. Suggestion to NB, use a recyclable bag inside the shoe box and supply a shorter than 59" shoe lace length. I bought a pair of 45" length Kiwi round reflective style laces and they are much better lengthwise since I do not use the last two lacing holes. L.L. Bean customer support is the greatest!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Spark43502 Poor material quality
I ordered this shoes in the same size as two other pair of NB shoes I have had for a few years. I could not even get this shoe on, way too small. But I had no desire to try ordering a larger size as I was totally dismayed by the quality of material used for this shoe. Obviously not leather. Looked and smelled like very cheap vinyl. I absolutely love the fact they are assembled in the US, but use some quality material!

For my money, these are the most comfortable walking shoes you can buy. I would recommend them to anyone, including those with plantar fasciitis. This is my second pair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by UrbanPennsylvanian Cheap Sneakers
I usually buy New Balance 609s for $55-$60 so when they were not available I thought I would try LL Bean even thoug they cost $77 because I have liked my purchases in the past. The New Balance sneakers I bought from Beans are not sufficiently padded for a toe problem and are painful to wear. When I am able to buy 609s I will
and intend to throw out the sneakers I bought from Beans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by elvisisinthehouse great fit, looks good and wears comfortable
As usual, LL Bean has another great product. All other shoes and clothing that I have bought over the last 25 years have been durable and well built. Good service from a great company.

Rated 3 out of 5 by oldfarmlady Too narrow for a D wearer
Most of my shoes are D widths. If you like the shoe and you're a D, consider EE.
(I have no idea how I got the nickname. 2 of the 3 words are wrong.}

Rated 5 out of 5 New Balance 577
I have purchased this model at least eight times so I am biased. I use it for tennis and for walking. Per the comments of others, I order 1/2 longer and it fits well. So, 9 1/2 4E becomes 10 4E. I hope NB keeps making them the same.
