Rated 5 out of 5áby Mrcranky 577 walkers
I ordered these to replace NB cross trainers that were about worn out. My street shoe is an 11 D. In talking with the customer rep he recommended getting both 11 and 11.5's and sending back what did not work. Since I have the Bean cc this was a good move as there was no shipping cost involved. The 11's, my normal size, fit well for lengths and width. The 11.5's fit also but felt a bit too loose as I like a snugger shoe without it causing tightness discomfort. The return process was painless. I have worn these several weeks around town and on fitness walks. They are very comfortable and were right out of the box. The only aspect is that they are all white with no contrast. I don't care, but some folks may agree with the nursing home comment. It would cure that to even color the logo or something. It my world that is a non issue. A very good shoe. My wife has a pair and so does my daughter and they have the same opinions.

Rated 2 out of 5áby BirdNerd Comfortable, but not durable
I have bought 3 pairs over the past few years. While extremely comfortable (the reason I prefer them), they do not hold up well. The uppers have separated from the sole on several pairs. The finish on the uppers flakes off. It's a shame...so comfortable, but very poor durability.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Graywanderer Comfortable and look good
I bought these as a replacement for my Rockport walkers and they are very comfortable. I wear a 14 and they seem to run a bit large but that is not a problem. I'll give them a good test in the coming weeks, and see how they feel then.

Rated 2 out of 5áby gary9696 Inbetween width
I will be returning these shoes soon. I usually wear a EE width, and these seem to be wider than that, but I think a D would be too narrow.

This is the fourth pair I have purchased and have had great luck with fit and comfort. I have purchased other shoes and boots from L L Bean and they have fit and are comfortable.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Quarkism Tear
I bought these, appropriately sized, to accommodate my wide feet.
After very moderate walking use, six months, the top has separated from the base on the right shoe. About a 1.5 inch tear. Not really repairable.

Rated 5 out of 5áby DonnyBoy Good value, prompt delivery, free shipping!
These are super walking shoes, with a good fit and comfortable support for daily wear. I've worn New Balance 577 shoes for several years and was happy to find them available from LL Bean at a good price. Free shipping and prompt delivery made this an excellent value (plus a no-hassle return policy which I doubt that I'll ever have to use for these shoes). Fun fact: I had bought a pair of 577's off the Internet for about $20 less - but the soles came apart after wearing them for about a week and of course there was NO warranty. I'll never do that again. Thanks LL Bean!
