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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewYorkJoe Love these shoes
I was looking for a pair of good walking shoes. Following the advice given on the website, I ordered these shoes one-half size larger than my actual shoe size. When I received them and tried them on, they fit like shoes that may have been custom-made for me. I'm very pleased with both the shoes and the quick delivery by LLBean.
